Established in 2006, the Henry R. Kravis Prize in Leadership recognizes and celebrates extraordinary accomplishment and bold leadership in the nonprofit sector. Over the years, the Prize has provided funding for the extraordinary efforts of the Rural Development Institute, the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee, the Forum For African Women Educationalists (FAWE), the Afghan Institute of Learning, Pratham and Escuela Nueva. However, the Kravis Prize offers much more than just financial support – we strive to share our recipients’ best practices with the nonprofit community and inspire future generations to become nonprofit leaders.

This year, we are delighted to announce not one, but TWO winners of the seventh annual Kravis Prize in Leadership: Soraya Salti, CEO of Arab educational mentoring program INJAZ Al-Arab, and mothers2mothers, an organization that helps to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS through the education and support of mothers with HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa!

We’ll feature our amazing winners on our blog over the next few weeks, but check out the press release to learn some basic facts about Salti and m2m!
