Our Sansar, a UK charity working in International Aid and Development, has been nominated for the Quality of Education for All category of the 2023 .ORG Impact Awards. The awards program, an initiative by the Public Interest Registry (PIR), recognises outstanding mission-driven individuals and organisations from around the world and their positive contributions to society.
Our Sansar was selected amongst nearly 1000 applicants from over 70 countries for their work fighting poverty and inequalities in Nepal and providing assistance to hundreds of boys and girls who are victims of child labour, trafficking, abandonment, abuse, poverty and gender-based violence.
Julia Krepska, Founder and Director of Our Sansar, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be finalists for the .ORG Impact Awards. It is a recognition of our commitment to change the lives of children in Nepal for the better, especially in an area where more than 50% of children are out of school and 1 in 2 girls marry when they are still children, losing any chance to have a successful future. All the children that we have rescued are attending school now and are given the chance of a future with no poverty and discrimination. We want to extend our project soon to other areas of Southern Nepal and help an estimated 2,500 children working in terrible conditions in brick factories, and those being subjected to violence and abuse.”
Jon Nevett, President and CEO of Public Interest Registry, said: “We are honoured to welcome our 2023 .ORG Impact Award Finalists into our growing community of changemakers, who inspire us to make the world a better place. We created the awards to celebrate those within the .ORG Community who work tirelessly to uplift their communities – and this year’s finalists represent hope for a brighter future.”
Our Sansar, winner of the UK Charity Awards 2023, is among the finalists of the 2023 .ORG Impact Awards. Winners across all categories, including the prestigious .ORG of the Year, will be announced at a virtual celebration on 16 November. The winner of the .ORG of the Year award will receive a donation of $50,000 while the other category winners will each receive $10,000. The awards aim to raise the profile of winning organisations, ultimately driving donations, funding, talent acquisition, partnership development, and increasing audience reach.
