Tia Honored to Be Finalist in Secretary Clinton’s Innovation Award

The Tia Foundation is honored to be named one of 15 finalists in the Secretary’s Innovation Award for the Empowerment of Women and Girls.  We received the happy news after submitting our five page concept paper.  Last week, thanks to the help of friends and volunteers, we sent in our full proposal.  Two organizations will be selected in the final round to receive an award of up to $500,000!

The Secretary’s Innovation Award for the Empowerment of Women and Girls seeks to find and bring to scale the most pioneering approaches to the political, economic and social empowerment of women and girls around the globe. Founded on the premise that the major economic, security, governance and environmental challenges of our time cannot be solved without the full participation of women at all levels of society, this award supports the Department of State’s commitment to the advancement of women globally.  The Rockefeller Foundation, as part of its mission to expand opportunity and promote more equitable growth, seeks to identify innovative approaches that can be scaled to address these challenges.
