Through its various programs the Boxgirls project supports several thousand girls and women in Germany, South Africa, and Kenya in gaining new experiences as well as physical strength and in improving their social skills. The Assets for Change program in Cape Town expands upon these newly acquired skills and provides financial training to give the girls self-confidence in handling money and to increase the financial independence of women and girls.
The annual BMW Foundation Young Leaders Awards recognizes young leaders who chart new paths and initiate, develop, or support exemplary initiatives for the common good in their professional or private lives. The awards were presented this year for the third time. The official awards ceremony took place during the prestigious Munich Economic Summit with its high-ranking audience.
