VIDEO: Polaris Skoll Award 2017
The Skoll Awards distinguish transformative leaders whose organizations disrupt the status quo, drive sustainable large-scale change, and are poised to create even greater impact on the world. “Social entrepreneurs share several important characteristics: concern for the vulnerable, optimism about our future, an ability to think and do, and most importantly, an unfailing belief in solutions,” said Jeff Skoll, Founder and Chairman of the Skoll Foundation. “These four remarkable people give us great hope that a more peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future is within reach.”
Polaris is honored to be included among the recipients and will receive a $1.25m grant over three years from Skoll Foundation to provide core support to scale our efforts to disrupt human trafficking networks and increase the number of survivors we are able to reach.
