We are delighted to announce that Womankind has made the shortlist for this year’s Charity Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards scheme in the charity sector.

Womankind has been shortlisted for the International Aid and Development award for our 'Community Responses to Violence Against Women' project. The three year project in partnership with Federation of Women Lawyers Kenya (FIDA Kenya) and Womens Legal Aid Centre (WLAC) in Tanzania aimed to challenge community norms of violence against women. With expert knowledge from our partners we worked to eradicate harmful practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM) and child early forced marriage. 

The Charity Awards is the sector’s most highly-regarded excellence recognition scheme. We are proud to be among the 28 shortlisted charities who have been judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated best practice in leadership and management, from which other organisations can learn. 

Matthew Nolan, chief executive of Civil Society Media, which organises the Charity Awards, congratulated us on making the highly-coveted shortlist. He said:

“Once again we received a record number of entries to the Charity Awards, and the breadth and quality of the work being done by charities across the sector continues to astonish. Womankind Worldwide should be very proud to have made the shortlist."

The ten category winners, plus the recipients of the Overall Award for Excellence and the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement, will be announced on 5th June 2019 in London.
