CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: $50,000 Award for Property Rights: Identity, Dignity & Opportunity for All
Omidyar Network and Ashoka’s Changemakers invite you to join the movement to unleash individual opportunity through property rights.
Secure rights to land can provide life-altering benefits to the poor, including economic opportunity, enhanced identity, and personal dignity. If you are a changemaker who is increasing access to property rights—for individuals or communities, in rural or urban areas, through non-profit or for-profit innovation—we want to hear from you.
We seek diverse approaches and groundbreaking models to strengthening property rights. From August 18 through November 3, 2010, you can nominate or submit a solution that helps to provide land to the landless, formalizes or documents property rights, or provides legal education to help people understand and benefit from the laws that protect their assets.
Prizes: Three winners will be selected; each will receive a cash prize of US $50,000.
Deadline: November 3, 2010
