Pathways to Education Canada, an organization that is reducing high school dropout rates in low-income communities, has been recognized by the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) for its innovative and effective work in helping disadvantaged youth overcome barriers to education.
Pathways is one of six not-for-profits that have been awarded the 2013 WISE awards, part of the Doha-based Qatar Foundation, which advocates for building the future of education through innovation. This year’s other winners — all recognized for "groundbreaking" projects — are from Morocco, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland and Saudi Arabia.
Pathways has been operating in Winnipeg’s North End for several years.
