2017 UNSTOPPABLE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
In 2011, after visiting schools in the Maasai Mara with WE Charity, Grammy-award-winning singer-songwriter, Nelly Furtado, initiated a $500K matching grant to fund the Oleleshwa All Girls Secondary School.
Nelly created a personal video for our 2012 Unstoppable Gala – inspiring guests to give to this project. Our Unstoppable Gala donors stepped up in a big way and helped provide the remaining funds to complete the high school!
Today, Oleleshwa All Girls Secondary School gives HUNDREDS of young Kenyan women an education.
This was a full circle moment for us to be able to honor Nelly Furtado, a tireless and inspirational champion for girls’ education, with our Unstoppable Achievement Award.

2016 UNSTOPPABLE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
We are honored to present this year’s Unstoppable Achievement Award to Chris Mburu.
For Chris Mburu, the opportunity to make something out of his life would have ended as a young, rural Kenya student, if not for a small act of kindness by Hilde Back, a holocaust survivor who paid for his education.
Mburu went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and become a human rights lawyer for the United Nations.
The astonishing story of Hilde and Chris is captured in the award-winning 2010 film, “A Small Act”, but it is Mburu’s pay it forward initiative that is causing a shift in Kenyan society.
Inspired by Hilde’s generosity, in 2001 he started a scholarship program to help other bright Kenyan students who couldn’t afford school fees and to name the scholarship program after her.
To date, the fund has provided more than 500 scholarships for students to attend and graduate from high school.
Mburu’s new campaign – education is a human right – is to get all children the free education they are entitled to.
Chris Mburu’s life is a powerful example of what an education makes possible and embodies that one child really can change the world.
