London-based charity – the STARS Foundation – is making a final call for applications for its 2010 Impact Awards from eligible organisations working with disadvantaged children in Bangladesh. The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 1pm GMT Tuesday 19 January 2010.
The prestigious annual Impact Awards recognise one recipient in each category of health, education and protection. Each Award provides US$100,000 of unrestricted funding as well as tailored consultancy support. In addition, a smaller Award may be made at the discretion of the STARS Board of Trustees to recognise the work of an organisation whose application demonstrates potential as a ‘rising star.’
STARS Foundation chief executive Muna Wehbe said: “Over the past three years, our recipients have benefited in many ways from their Award, beyond the funding and the consultancy support that we offer. Organisations have secured increased funding, enhanced media profile, and built stronger partnerships. As a result, this has benefited thousands of children.”
The STARS Foundation improves the well-being of disadvantaged children around the world by supporting organisations which meet their health, education and protection needs. In 2009, six organisations in Africa and Asia were selected against a range of criteria that reflect the hallmarks of effective practice and demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of the children supported.
The 2010 Awards, which opened for applications on 9 October 2009, saw STARS extending its coverage to 24 new countries in the Middle East, East Asia and Pacific. A total of 80 countries are now covered by the Awards.
Eligible organisations wishing to apply for the 2010 Impact Award should visit http://www.starsfoundation.org.uk to download the application form before the 1pm GMT Tuesday 19 January 2010 closing date.
