Chance for Childhood won the Collaboration Award last year

Collaboration Award

The Collaboration Award recognises the importance of effective relationships and collaborations within and across disciplines to tackle difficult issues.

We are experiencing a move from traditional NGO/donor links and "aid chains" to relationships that cut across sectors and disciplines. This award focuses on emerging collaborations to highlight what is working and what is possible. We're looking for successful projects that demonstrate effective and sustaiable collaborations.
