Second year International Communication student wins Amnesty award
Second year International Communication student Dorothea Pfannkuch has won the Glass Candle Award of Amnesty International.
She received the award during the “Northern Freedom Event” for her work for the Saidia Foundation. She won the award together with International Business and Management student Marina Pauken.
This annual award is given to young citizens of the North of the Netherlands who have made a significant contribution to the improvement of human rights. Dorothea is very happy with the award: “we are very proud that we could show what work we do and what we can achieve for students from developing countries.”
The Saidia Foundation raises money for talented students from developing countries to give them the chance to study in Groningen for a semester. In addition, the foundation also offers financial and physical support to projects in developing countries by for example having a student intern as part of such a project.
