6th World Innovation Summit for Education
The WISE delegates were welcomed into MIA last night for a dinner that was sure to be a wonderful start to their week in Doha.
Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) named Ann Cotton as the 2014 WISE Prize for Education Laureate during the opening session of WISE 2014 today.
Ann Cotton, Founder and President of Camfed, has been committed to girls education in Africa for more than 20 years. Her main goal has been to improve opportunities for girls and young women at the margins of education. Cotton identified poverty, as opposed to cultural sensitivity, as the main reason for low school attendance with girls and young women. She continues to strive to change the lives of these girls and young women through her initiative.
