This year Stars Foundation, after reviewing 277 applications from organizations around the world, announced Educate Girls as the winner of the 2014 Impact Award for Education in Asia Pacific. The award entitles Educate Girls to 100,000 US Dollars of unrestricted funding and 20,000 US Dollars of consultancy support.
The award ceremony took place in London where former President of the USA, Bill Clinton, and His Excellency, Amr Al-Dabbagh, felicitated the winning organizations. Educate Girls are thrilled to have received the award.
“Educate Girls came across as a very well-connected organization, with an excellent range of support in place, including partnerships that provide a range of high-quality pro-bono support. Clear administrative, financial and HR systems and processes were demonstrated, and strong leadership was a strength noted at the Head Office and at the district level.” ~ Stars Foundation
