Peter Greenberg, CBS News Travel Editor and world renowned travel expert, will host the Award presentation.
The World Tourism Humanitarian Award is being presented to Maggie Q, Good Will Ambassador for Kageno, in recognition of her humanitarian efforts by raising funds in support of Kageno, an organization that transforms impoverished communities, specifically in Kenya and Rwanda, by focusing on programs for clean water, health care, conservation and education.
Maggie Q, stated that she was highly honored to get this recognition for her support of Kageno, “which has been a beautiful model in responsible tourism.” She added, “My friend and Kageno founder, Frank Andolino, never planned on visiting a country and returning soon after to give back to the culture and its people. It happens when you open your heart to the need, and tell yourself, I can do more.”
