Center For Interfaith Action On Global Poverty
The SEVEN Fund, in partnership with the Center, has announced its annual 2010-11 essay competition. The Center, founded by development philanthropist Edward Scott, seeks to improve the capacity and effectiveness of the faith community in its collective effort to reduce poverty and disease. Writers are asked to submit a first-person narrative that describes enterprise solutions to poverty that are faith-based, faith-inspired, or an interfaith effort. Topics may come from any area including healthcare, education, consumer products, human rights, and others. Examples must represent innovative private solutions to public problems. Essays should be no longer than 2,000 words, in English. Each submission should start with a 100-word abstract and a 100-word biography of the author. The competition is open to all participants around the world. All essays must be submitted electronically. The competition will award two cash prizes of $5,000 each. Additional information including the electronic submission form can be found on the Web site.
