Stars Impact Awards

The Awards recognise outstanding organisations working to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in countries with the highest rates of under-five mortality.

This year, we will be inviting applications from Latin America and the Caribbean, in addition to a selection of new countries in our existing regions of Africa-Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

A total of 24 Awards will be split across these three regions and the four categories of Health, Education, Protection and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene).

The main Impact Award will be given to four winners per region that will each receive $100,000 of unrestricted funding together with a bespoke package of consultancy, PR support, and media training. Runners Up will receive up to $50,000 of unrestricted funding in addition to consultancy support.

In 2014 we are piloting a programme with The Global Fund for Children UK Trust to recognise and encourage grassroots organisations that show real potential as they work to improve the lives of vulnerable children. The Global Rising Stars Award will target organisations with incomes between $75,000 – $200,000, and for this year, will be invitation-only until the success of the pilot has been assessed.
