TCF wins prestigious Skoll Award
On December 21,2012 Skoll Foundation announced its winners for the year 2013 and TCF was one of the six distinguished winners.
TCF was declared as one of the six winners of 2013 Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship (SASEs). Chosen from hundreds of applicants, the award recognises a highly selective group of the world’s most promising social entrepreneurs. While Skoll’s new awardees focus on different issues, they share what Skoll believes is key to accelerating large-scale change: an entrepreneurial approach, a proven innovation with demonstrated impact that can be scaled, focus on a pressing issue that is at an inflection point, and an ability to catalyse systems change, according to the statement.
Some of the previous international winners of Skoll Award include Pratham, Teach for All, INJAZ Al-Arab, Barefoot College and Kashf Foundation.
