The Inter-American Development Bank’s JK VISIONARIES award recognizes organizations that are working in innovative and effective ways to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. The award is open to non-governmental organizations from IDB member countries that are leaders in improving lives, strengthening citizen participation, fostering equitable societies, and promoting social inclusion, with over five years on projects with proven results. The winning organization will receive U.S. $100,000 to encourage its initiative and its ongoing efforts to improve the lives of the region’s people. A second-place prize of $50,000, and third- and fourth-place prizes of $25,000 each, will also be awarded. The deadline for proposals has been extended to May 29—visit the Bank’s website to review the call for proposals in English or Spanish.
