Announcing the True Honour Awards!

19Jan11

Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the fight against ‘honour’ based violence? 

In 2011, IKWRO will grant two awardsin recognition of the hard work and dedication of individuals and organisations who are working to end ‘honour’ based violence in the UK.  By showcasing some of the most exceptional work, we believe that we can inspire others to take action to prevent ‘honour’ based crimes.

The award is also about turning the concept of ‘honour’ on its head.  For us, true honour means respect for human rights.  We hope that by hosting this award we can help to restore the sense of pride among survivors of ‘honour’ based violence, and can honour the memory of those who have been murdered. 

We will launch a call for nominations later this year, and if you know a person or an organisation that has done inspirational work to prevent ‘honour’ killings, protect victims or bring offenders to justice, then we are very keen to hear from you.

The winners will be announced at a high profile gala awards ceremony in London in November, attended by survivors of honour based violence, women activists, politicians, journalists, civil servants, staff from public sector bodies and other charities and IKWRO supporters. 

Can you help to fund the awards?  IKWRO urgently needs funds for the True Honour Awards to help ensure that they are as big a success as possible.  If you can help us by making a donation please email campaigns.ikwro@gmail.com.   

More information on nominations and donating will be posted on our website in July.

Our blog has now moved onto our main website.  Check it out here, and find IKWRO on twitter and facebook
