About the STARS Impact Awards

The Stars Impact Awards recognise and reward outstanding local organisations improving the lives of children in the countries with the highest rates of under-five mortality.

To date, through the Impact Awards alone, Stars Foundation has awarded 130 organisations in 41 countries, reaching over 5 million people.

Stars is proud to announce the recipients of the 2016 Stars Impact Awards, marking ten years of the flagship programme.​ ​The following 23 locally-led organisations are being recognised for the impact they have made on underserved children in their communities.

Representatives from each award-winning NGO took the stage at the Philanthropreneurship Forum, entitled “Generation Impact: Harnessing the Power of Giving” held at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna on 16 January 2017.
