The World of Children Award, also known as the Nobel Peace Prize for non-profits, is an annual award given out to non-profits to elevate the most effective changemakers for children world wide. In November, A Leg To Stand On’s co-founder, Mead Welles, received the World of Children Health Award.
As part of this award, ALTSO received a grant of $75,000 to be allocated in equal installments over the next three years. ALTSO expects to treat over 500 patients with these funds, and is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the World of Children community. Below is a video of all of the 2013 honorees and the work they are doing for children all over the world.
