BLINK AT THE ZURI AWARDS!
In February 2021 Tanya Maringo Blink International’s Founder and Executive Director was nominated to receive the prestigious 2021 Zuri Award for healthcare. Zuri Awards is a platform celebrating outstanding women who are changing the lives through their work and is hosted every year during International Women’s Day (IWD).
We are immensely happy to report that Blink International won the award for effectively tackling mental health at the ceremony! Tanya who received the award on behalf of the organization recognizes that gender is a critical component of Blink mental health activities and continues to support initiatives that challenge traditional and harmful stereotypes and toxic masculinities that are taught and promote to many children at a tender age.
She stands together with women across the globe to challenge gender inequality and we appreciate her efforts and innovative ways in doing this. Join us as we #ChoosetoChallenge the status quo through our work. Congratulations Tanya and all other award nominees for your exemplary work in the most difficult and often turbulent times.
Here is to all strong and inspiring women may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them!
