Association „Novi put“ from Mostar is one of only three nominees from around the world for the world-renowned Thomson Reuters Foundation - Stop Slavery Hero Award 2022.
"Novi put" is the only non-governmental organization from Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also from Europe, which was shortlisted for this prestigious award. In addition to "Novi put", two other NGOs from India were nominated. The shortlisted candidates were chosen from more than 150 entries received this year from more than 30 countries.
The Stop Slavery Award is an annual initiative led by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, a UK-registered charity that recognizes and celebrates those dedicated to combating all forms of modern slavery and human trafficking.
„Novi put“ has been shortlisted for the Stop Slavery Hero Award 2022. This award was established to recognize organizations from around the world who have made a significant impact in the fight to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking, one of the most important humanitarian issues in the world.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation - Stop Slavery Award will be presented at the gala ceremony in London on April 28, 2022, when all the winners will be officially announced. The Award ceremony will be hosted by the world-renowned law firm Baker McKenzie, based in London.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation - Stop Slavery Award is considered one of the most important global recognitions in the field of humanitarian work and media.
This is another important international recognition that the NGO "Novi put" received for its engagement in the field of protection of women's and children's rights and prevention of human trafficking. We remind you that the Association "Novi put", as the only organization from BaH, has already received the prestigious international award for combating child trafficking and sexual exploitation of children, which was presented to them by H.E. Queen Silvia of Sweden at the suggestion of the Swedish Foundation "Child10" in 2021.
