Investing in Young WOMEN Award

Women are severely under-represented in decision making processes across the continent including South Africa and internationally. Education has been identified as the major obstacle to women’s access to leadership, and cost as the key barrier to girls’ education.

Poverty and familial obligations end many girls’ hope for education or the opportunity to fulfill her dreams.

This award recognises and acknowledges organisations that have strategies in place to allow for future education of young women or have implemented initiatives with the objective of addressing social inequities by educating and empowering young women leaders from diverse economic backgrounds. These initiatives have positively impacted the lives of young women who will become the next generation of women leaders!
