Closed/Expired: Waislitz Global Citizen Award 2018

Waislitz Global Citizen Award 2018

The Waislitz Global Citizen Award 2018 is now open. The Waislitz Global Citizen Award is a $100,000 prize awarded to an individual who best demonstrates global citizenship, impact, innovation, and potential.  The annual award, presented by Alex Waislitz and Global Citizen, recognizes the excellence of one individual in their work to end extreme poverty.

The 2015 Award Winner, Twesigye Jackson Kaguri , is the Director of The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project, an organization working on behalf of HIV/AIDS orphans in rural southwest Uganda to end systemic deprivation, poverty, and hunger through community development, education, and healthcare.

Global Citizen is a community of people like you. People who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges—and use their power to get other people involved too. They bring you stories and actions that make a difference. That help fight extreme poverty and inequality around the world, and support approaches that will make life more sustainable for people and the planet.
