Recognizing the Power of Making a Lasting, Meaningful Difference

2010 Tech Awards Laureates with Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, the recipient of this year’s Global Humanitarian Award. The Tech Awards represent the single longest-standing forum for recognition of organizations that are actively creating a sustainable future building process. The quality of Laureates has consistently recognized role models who out shine the rigid, prescriptive formulas of conventional aid. Winners have in common a process that draws from an ever-expanding reference collection of preferred and likely ingredients which are blended together to meet local needs with locally empowered people. These results can be emulated and evolve on a global scale.
