WWSF Prize

Submit Nominations for WWSF Prize for Women’s Creativity in Rural Life
Deadline 30 -Apr-2020
Nominations are now open for the 2020 Women’s World Summit
Foundation (WWSF) Prize for women’s creativity in rural life. WWSF – an
international, non-profit, humanitarian NGO, serving the implementation of
women and children’s rights and the UN development agenda honors
women and women’s groups around the world exhibiting exceptional
creativity, courage and commitment for the improvement of the quality of
life in rural communities.
The Prize aims to draw international attention to laureates’ contributions to
sustainable development, food security and peace, thus generating
recognition and support for their initiatives and projects. While rural women
are vital in providing examples of sound practices in their communities,
they still do not have full access to tools needed for development, such as
education, credit, land rights and participation in decision making. By
highlighting and awarding creative development leaders and their work,
innovations and experiences enhancing the quality of rural life, WWSF

participates in empowering rural women in their contribution to end rural
poverty, improve gender equality, and advance women’s rights to peace
and well-being.
