For over 20 years, indigo foundation has supported grassroots organisations in some of the most marginalised communities in the world to define and implement their development goals – be that getting children into school, improving health and livelihoods, empowering women and girls or strengthening culture. The prize lifts up the importance of learning about and taking action for equity and justice in the world."
