Secretary for International Development awards SCWC

Posted on the 22nd May 2014

Street Child World Cup in association with Save the Children are delighted to have won the “small NGO category” at the Bond Development Awards for international development. The awards celebrate the innovative and exciting work by British international development organisations.  Our award was in recognition of this film “When the world conspires with us”

The award was presented to our CEO John Wroe and Director of Fundraising Francesca Marenghi by Rt. Hon. Justine Greening, Secretary of State for International Development at the awards ceremony in Sadler’s Wells, London. According to Bond “The judges were particularly struck by the humility of those involved and the sense of fun they injected into the lives of the children the project touched.”

This years theme was collaboration and we would like to dedicate this award to the inspiring children and project partners that we serve and our partners without whom none of the work would be possible. We look forward to moving out of the small NGO category!

Bond is the UK membership body for organisations working in international development or supporting those that do through funding, research, training and other services.
