Director and Founder Louise van Rhyn describes the awards as the ‘Oscars’ for Education;
“This is a significant moment on the PfP journey and acknowledgement of impact and innovation with regard to leadership, mobilising active citizenship and cross-sector collaboration.”
Every year, the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) Awards recognizes and awards six pioneering and ground-breaking ventures that are tackling, head-on, educational challenges throughout the world.
According to Stavros N. Yiannouka, CEO of WISE:
“The WISE Awards bring enhanced visibility to action-oriented projects that have had a demonstrated impact in their communities and can set the standard for similar initiatives worldwide.”
