Worldfund Raises more than $1.5 Million to fund Education Programs to Fight Poverty in Latin America

Author: Worldfund, Published on: 9 June 2010

The 2010 Education Leadership Award was bestowed on three business leaders whose organizations have demonstrated an outstanding and continuous commitment to education development in Latin America: Jim Skinner, Vice Chairman and CEO, McDonald's; Woods Staton, President and CEO, Arcos Dorados, and; Paolo Rocca, Chairman and CEO, Techint Organizaton. The purpose of the Education Leadership award is to highlight and applaud a corporation or individual that has demonstrated a strong commitment to education in Latin America. Worldfund typically bestows the Education Leadership Award on both a Latin American and U.S.-based corporation to drive home the point that individuals and corporations throughout the Americas have a common vested interest in improving education levels in Latin America.
