Breakthrough is one of the six recipients of the 2016 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.

The Skoll Award is not a lifetime achievement award. By investing in organizations when their innovations are ripe for accelerated and scaled adoption, the Awards help unleash the full global potential and reach of social entrepreneurs.

We’re incredibly honored.

The Skoll Awards distinguish transformative leaders whose organizations are disrupting the status quo, driving large-scale “equilibrium” change, and are poised to create even greater impact on the world. We couldn’t be prouder of this tremendous recognition of our innovative approach, cutting-edge methodology, and effective programs that can scale from local to global.

Check out Skoll’s video about our work.

The Skoll Award includes a $1.25 million core support investment, meant to help Breakthrough scale our work and increase our impact. Breakthrough has big plans for leveraging the award: to catalyze 1 million social change actors who take action to make violence against women and girls unacceptable. We know that our team can pull this off–and the support from Skoll and its network of social entrepreneurs will help make it possible.

We couldn’t do this without the Breakthrough Generation. Thank you for getting involved and joining the fight to make violence against women and girls unacceptable.

I’m ready to be part of the Breakthrough Generation.
