Clements and Bond Honour Leading NGOs with International Development Awards
Clements Worldwide, the leading provider of international insurance solutions, yesterday awarded the first annual International Development Awards to leading NGO and development organisations at a ceremony in London, in partnership with Bond, the UK’s membership body for over 400 international development organisations. The awards were presented by Justine Greening, UK Secretary of State for International Development.
Sponsored by Clements, the International Development Awards celebrate innovation and creativity in the development sector. Three winners, Street Child United, We Are Motivation and Safer World, were selected by expert judges from a competitive pool of small, medium and large sized organisations who submitted videos illustrating the positive impact of collaboration, echoing the 2014 Awards theme of effective partnership.
According to Ben Jackson, Chief Executive of Bond, “International development organisations are working with a range of partners from small, community-based groups to large companies. Together they deliver real benefits to some of the world’s poorest people. These awards are an opportunity for the winners to share their collaborative ways of working. Others can learn from them and we can all celebrate work so often hidden from the public eye.”
The International Development Awards are part of a larger partnership between Bond and Clements, who are again serving as the exclusive event sponsor of Bond’s Annual Conference. This year’s event in November will bring together top influencers and leaders in the development sector to discuss bold new insights and innovative approaches, including best practices about insurance and risk management.
