KI is very excited to share with our supporters that our project was recognized by a top award. Our Muslm Youth Volunteering program won 4th place at 2012 Intercultural Innovation award in Vienna, Austria which were announced in February 2013. KI hopes to use the award to expand the program into new areas of Mindanao and to run a pilot project in other partsof the Philippines.
The coveted international Award is part of an unprecedented partnership between the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the BMW Group. Designed to contribute towards social stability and economic growth in multicultural societies, the Award is given to innovative grassroots projects promoting intercultural dialogue and understanding.
The award ceremony was attended by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who announced the winners of the 2012 Intercultural Innovation Award. President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, Incoming United Nations High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, and Mr. Bill McAndrews, Vice President Communications Strategy, Corporate and Market Communications, BMW Group, presented the Award. UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Placido Domingo was also in attendance to congratulate all the winners.
“I commend the leadership shown by the BMW Group in supporting this Award and the projects that are being recognized” stated the Secretary-General. “The creative solutions being showcased tonight hold lessons for all communities and for organizations such as the United Nations.”
