IDB Prize for Women’s Contribution to Development

The Islamic Development Bank established the IDB Prize for Women's Contribution to Development in 2006 to draw international attention to the vital role women play in developing their communities and the world.

It aims to:

b. Encourage
  • efforts to improve women's access to opportunities and resources to help them become active participants in developing their economy and society
  • individuals and organizations that offer grants and resources to work towards promoting women's leadership, engagement and contribution to the socioeconomic development process
c. Inspire
  • women by promoting exemplary role models
  • individuals and organizations to initiate and actively engage in all projects aimed at developing women and building their capacities
d. Reward
  • individuals and organizations that are committed to improving the well-being and status of women locally, nationally, and globally
  • actions that reinforce and strengthen the role of women as essential contributors to society as well as effective agents of change and development
