Charity review
 
Norway
 
  This year, the UNWG received over 900 applications for funding. An administrative team of 5 UNWG members was formed to conduct preliminary evaluations and shortlisted 496 proposals for funding in 2017. The Charity Review Committee regional teams have spent the last four months evaluating these proposals. The selected 31 projects in 30countries have been endorsed by the Board. A detailed presentation will be made to UNWG members at the General Meeting on 24 May 2017.   Norway is a Scandinavian country with dramatic landscapes: mountains, glaciers, deep coastal fjords and spectacular arctic lights. Oslo, the capital, is a city of history and museums. Preserved 9th-century Viking ships are displayed at Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum. Bergen, with colorful wooden houses, is the starting point for cruises to the beautiful Sognefjord. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking and skiing. Lillehammer hosted th Winter Olympics in 1994, and now has a fabulous resort.
