Her Abilities Award celebrates women with disabilities who have achieved greatness in their life or field of work. It was launched last year by Light for the World and by Right Livelihood Award winner Yetnebersh Nigussie.

Three incredible women won the award last year and we were honoured with their contributions at the 2019 Zero Project Conference.

Nominations opened again on 8th March 2019 and will be open until 21st June 2019.

The jury for the Her Abilities Award is made up of influential women with and without disabilities from different fields of life; from Mariam Doumbia, of blind musical duo Amadou & Mariam, to Sara Minkara, CEO of Empowerment through Integration (ETI).

Together they will decide on the winners in three categories: Health & Education; Rights and Arts, Culture & Sports.

Go ahead and make your nomination and good luck to everyone!
