Refugee  project fundsHello Funds Fans 🙂 Here’s something new!

The Ockenden International Prizes recognises the value of outstanding self-help projects for refugees and/or internally displaced people around the World.  The new annual $100,000 Prize accepts applications from organisations with projects, programmes or activities that help refugees and displaced people with pioneering approaches proven to be highly effective in promoting self-reliance for displaced communities.
The prize’s prime objective is to:

• Recognise and reward organisations giving inspirational and highly effective support, and enabling self-reliance.
• Share experience and learning about what works and leads to real change in the lives of refugees and displaced people.
