Malta Social Impact Awards to be aired this Saturday: Who are the Finalists?

The 5th edition of The Malta Social Impact Awards will be aired for the first time ever this Saturday 27 March at 8:50pm on national TV, giving viewers all of Malta the chance to be part of the impact from the comfort and safety of your own home!  

By bringing business and philanthropy together, MSIA supports local initiatives that have a positive social impact on Malta and helps social purpose organisations grow into stronger entities. 

Watch the 5 MSIA finalists pitch their social initiatives this Saturday for a chance of winning financial and non-financial support. Up to Eur50,000 in grants will be awarded. 

Who are this year’s finalists?

Adopt A Grandparent

Adopt A Grandparent Malta by Missio Malta and Newsbook.com.mt has been helping people for years and years. This time round they embarked on a new project that will elevate their services to a new level by helping elderly in Malta feel loved and help combat loneliness and solitude.

Charity Shops for the Community

Charity Shops for the Community by Inspire Malta need funding for a project that have recently spearheaded and that will definitely bring change to thousands of people by professionally organising its retail operations and expanding INSPIRE Charity Shops around the island.

Interpreter Unit

TAMA want to bring a much needed change in the community by reforming the current system addressing issues related to the availability of trained interpreters in Malta, and to do this, they need good funding.

Project Stop

Projectstop by Cross Culture International Foundation CCIF is without any doubt an impressive project that will help people and change lives by reaching out and empowering vulnerable groups in our community on the dangers of human trafficking.

Thrive Education and Wellness Farm 

Our last finalist is thrive education and wellness farm by Thrive. This indeed is a colourful project that will help Malta get greener and cleaner, while creating an environment where individuals feel supported to connect to themselves, each other, and nature. 

MSIA Winners: Where are they now?

In 2019 two social initiatives were awarded funding and non-financial support at the MSIA event in November. FAIE, an initiative by Professor Alexiei Dingli, won €50,000, while The Wellness Pod, by the Karl Vella Foundation, won €20,000.
