SOS Children would be delighted to talk to anyone interested in sponsoring schools materials or other events in the UK. We run a variety of events including Concerts, Balls and Golf Days and have different partners and sponsors for each of them. In addition 250,000 people worldwide sponsor a child or village as a way to support our work, and hundreds more do sponsored events as a means of raising funds for us.
We thank the Worldaware sponsors below who have dedicated their time and resources to sponsoring the Worldaware Business Awards in 2004.
The British Council connects people worldwide with learning opportunities and creative ideas from the UK and builds mutually beneficial relationships between the UK and other countries. We are the UK's international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations and are represented in 110 countries. We are delighted this year to be offering again an award for the effective transfer of English-language skills and knowledge, which directly contributes to sustainable development. In many communities, knowledge of English is an indispensable tool for learning and employment opportunities. We feel sure that the winning organisation will provide an inspiration to others to harness the English language towards the goal of sustainable development.
The Cambridge University Land Society
The Cambridge University Land Society is an informal alumni society which was formed over 50 years ago with two objectives:
To give an opportunity for members to meet each other, to make and renew friendships and to foster amongst them a spirit of good fellowship and co-operation;
To act as a link between members from within and outside the Department of Land Economy of the University and to provide opportunities for the exchange of views upon and discussion of matters of interest.
UK Trade & Investment
UK Trade & Investment is pleased to support Worldaware's initiative through sponsorship of the Award for Small Businesses. The importance of small sustainable businesses in advancing long term economic growth of developing countries cannot be overestimated of trading prosperity on which viable social, legal and financial frameworks are built. UK Trade& Investment supports the Prime Minister's commitment to the objectives of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NePAD), by seeking opportunities for UK business to trade with African companies.
Department of Trade and Industry
The British Government is strongly committed to building a system of free and fair international trade, which offers the widest economic benefits for all countries. We therefore wish to recognise the efforts of those (private or public sector) organisations that are helping to enhance the trade negotiating capabilities of developing countries, particularly in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations. This will help them to integrate more fully into the international trading arena. The DTI is therefore very pleased to continue to support the Worldaware Award for Capacity Building in the Developing World.
