Ran by the Better Society Network, the Better Society Awards shine a spotlight on organisations that create a better, more equal, and sustainable world.

We are so proud to have won the award for Best Partnership with an International Charity alongside our partner at Reckitt. The award recognises the Reckitt and Raleigh partnership and our project to increase safe sanitation and hygiene practises in Tanzania through a pioneering skills-based volunteering programme, where young people developed behaviour change interventions that changed hygiene and sanitation behaviours, making a real difference to people’s lives.

Raleigh International and Reckitt were presented with the award at the Better Society Awards Ceremony on 11th May.
