From Livestock to Lamps to Literacy – Youths Strive to Make a Difference in Women’s Lives
Support Your Favorite Project by Casting Your Vote for the People’s Choice Award
Following two highly successful campaigns, UN Women Singapore, MasterCard and INSEAD have rolled out the 2013 edition of Project Inspire: 5 Minutes to Change the World.
Launched in 2011, the multi-award winning initiative is dedicated to inspiring young people to build sustainable, long-term projects that benefit disadvantaged women and girls through social education, entrepreneurship and financial literacy across Asia/Pacific, the Middle East or Africa.
This year, ten innovative grassroots projects were selected from over 570 entries from around the world. The ten finalists will pitch their inspired ideas “live” to an esteemed panel of international judges to win the US$25,000 Women’s Empowerment Grant at the Project Inspire Grand Finals on the 30 August 2013. The event will also be streamed live via webcast on the Project Inspire website.
