FAWE is the third annual recipient of the Henry R. Kravis Prize in Leadership, awarded in honor of their tireless work on behalf of African girls, which has resulted in improved access to education for over 12 million girls. The Kravis prize, established in 2006, recognizes extraordinary leadership in the non-profit sector, and carries an award of $250,000 to the organization. The prize is administered by Claremont McKenna College, the Kravis Leadership Institute, and Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis 67. It will be presented to Dr. Codou Diaw, FAWEs Executive Director, and Simone de Comarmond, FAWEs founder and current chair, at ceremonies in New York on April 10. We are pleased to host them here as well, where they will discuss their efforts to spread educational equality in Africa.
