UK (PRUnderground) September 14th, 2012

The Impact Awards opened on the 10th of September 2012, giving frontline NGOs transforming the lives of children from Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Pacific regions the chance to apply for unrestricted funding to a total value of $1million from the STARS Foundation.

In response to a growing demand for flexible funding, the STARS Foundation invites eligible NGOs to apply for up to 16 Impact Awards that recognise the effective work that they do with the world’s most disadvantaged children.

STARS Foundation are also pleased to announce that for the first time, they have added a new category – ‘Water, Sanitation and Hygiene’ (WASH) – due to the impact that improvements in this area can have on a child’s survival and wellbeing.

Recipients of the main STARS Impact Awards receive $100,000 of unrestricted funding combined with a tailored consultancy support and media package. Along with this, STARS helps to improve the long term funding opportunities for the winning NGOs by showcasing their work to other donors.

Last year over 1,000 applications were received for the STARS Impact Awards from a variety of NGO’s across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific who are working for the health, education or protection of children.

Taking a different approach to most funders, The STARS Foundation finds and invests in exceptional local organisations and gives unrestricted funding.

Muna Wehbe from STARS Foundations said:

Local organisations are best placed to meet the needs of the communities that they serve and to decide how funding should be allocated to achieve the maximum impact. A STARS Foundation Impact Award often leads to organisations expanding their work, becoming more resilient and ultimately reaching more children.”
