We are excited to announce that we were invited to be a part of the Global Rising Stars Awards. This award is part of a pilot program partnership between The STARs Foundation and The Global Fund for Children UK. Organizations were selected this year based on “their work to improve the lives of vulnerable children” and the size of their operating budget. Typically, the awards given by the STARs Foundation are to organizations with larger operating budgets than we have at Miguel Angel Asturias Academy. However, this pilot program targets organizations of our size.
The STARs Foundation is known for their innovative model of support which gives unrestricted funding to well-run non-profits. We look forward to using this funding to expand our programming and continuing to provide opportunities for our students to improve their lives.
