As part of our second decade of operations, and in order to encourage compassion for others, we created The Forgotten International Compassion Award. The award reads, For Demonstrating Compassion Toward Those Who Might Have Otherwise Been Forgotten.
The first Compassion Awards of 2018 were given out on April 30th at a ceremony at Riverside High School in Greer, South Carolina. The awards went to two young women: Ms. Lucy Wang and Ms. Manon Courban for their work through the Atlas Club over the past four years in supporting impoverished school children in India, Thailand, Kenya, Peru, and most recently Cambodia.
