Whether bicycle training for women who have fled, help for foster families for disabled children or the construction of schools in Afghanistan - the Funke media group has awarded five women the "Goldene Bild der Frau" prize for their voluntary commitment.
The prizes were presented on Wednesday evening in Hamburg as part of a gala moderated by Kai Pflaume. The awards are endowed with 10,000 euros per project.
