We’re so excited that the Kosmos Innovation Center—the Kosmos Energy-funded project DAI helps implement in Ghana—was announced the winner of the 2018 P3 Impact Award at the annual Concordia Summit in New York, that takes place alongside the United Nations General Assembly.

The award is presented each year by the U.S. State Department, the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, and Concordia. In its analysis of the KIC model, Darden School faculty members concluded that KIC has “begun to demonstrate the great potential of cross-sector partnerships to enable not only individual empowerment, but also fundamental societal transformation.”

Congratulations also to our fellow 2018 finalists: DREAMS Partnership, Griha Pravesh, Lake Kivu Coffee Alliance, and MIP Futuro.
