2014 WISE Awards
The 2014 WISE Awards winning projects have been selected. The six innovative education projects originate from Australia, Egypt, Finland, India, Jordan, and Peru. They were selected from a pool of 15 Finalists for their creative approach to learning and positive impact on society.

About the Winning Projects

The winning projects address several education challenges linked to access, literacy, creativity, and employment.

‘Alternate Education for Rural Development in Peru’ and ‘Me and My City’ in Finland use real-life models and provide hands-on training to equip youth with skills to match the needs of the local market.

The Jordan-based ‘We Love Reading’ program is training women to bring a love of reading to children, and provides a rich learning experience outside the school walls. This cost-effective program has spread across the Arab world and beyond.

In Australia, ‘The Song Room’ uses arts and music to improve social well-being and learning outcomes among children from underprivileged backgrounds. In Egypt, the ‘Street Children: Re-integration through Education’ program is taking children off the streets by reconnecting them with their families and the public school system.

In India, ‘Educate Girls’ tackles core issues of gender inequality in the education system. The project is building a cadre of village-based youth leaders to champion girls' education and become catalysts for school reform. They work within schools as well as village communities to encourage parents to send their girls to school, boosting enrolment, retention and learning outcomes for all girls.
