Jane Nicholson is 'Woman of the Year'

Given to Jane Nicholson in recognition of her work to relieve suffering over a period of nearly 25 years Avantaje magazine's award of ‘Woman of the Year 2014: Social Initiatives’ was presented by Princess Marina Sturdza. Those attending the gala evening at the Marriott Hotel also saw achievements recognised in education, children’s and women’s rights and social journalism.

In her speech of thanks, Jane Nicholson stressed that FARA’s success is due in large part to the professionalism and commitment of the project teams in Romania. She also expressed optimism for the country’s future as it takes its place alongside other nations in the EU.

Avantaje described the awards as follows:
‘Recipients of Woman of the Year awards are chosen for their courage, determination and independence – for their success in taking their own initiatives. We value women like you!’
