Alumni Awards 2017 in Cairo, Egypt

Meet the award winners!

The Alumni Awards recognise and honour the outstanding achievements of alumni of a UK higher education. Past award winners include Sesinam Dagadu who developed an ingenious system that allowed ambulance services to quickly and easily locate people living in some of the most remote areas of Ghana; and Neha Upadhyaya who returned to India to pursue her true passion of macrobiotic food and organic agriculture. Her organisation, Guna, promotes eco-positive eating via macrobiotic food workshops. Guna also retails organic products sourced from over 650 rural farmers in five Indian states that include women’s self-help groups and farmer-producer organisations....Read the inspirational stories of the 2017 Alumni Award winners and how they’re using their UK education to change the world...
