We Did it!

The Tia Foundation has been invited to submit a full proposal for the Secretary’s 2011 Innovation Award for the Empowerment of Women and Girls!  We submitted our proposal last Friday.  The award is given to organizations whose models represent pioneering approaches to the political, economic and social empowerment of women and girls around the globe.  Two winners will be chosen and each will receive a $500,000 grant and will be honored at a ceremony at the Department of State in Washington, D.C.

Please cross your fingers for us!  If we should win, more than 75,000 people will have access to health care who did not have it before and there will be at least 150 new positive and strong female leaders in our villages!
