The Voices of Courage Awards are presented annually to resilient, resourceful women who have a personal and powerful story to tell about the challenges and triumphs experienced by the tens of millions of people who have been displaced by conflict and violence worldwide.
Voices of Courage Awardees represent the many faces and circumstances of the current global refugee population.
1. A current or former refugee, a woman who has demonstrated leadership and a strong voice to support refugee women, children or youth wherever they reside. She may be currently or previously displaced, and she may be seeking or have been granted asylum.
2. A local civil society leader, a woman who has developed or implemented successful programs that serve displaced women, children or youth and who can speak to the impact of the Women’s Refugee Commission.
