The Alan Harpham Award honors and recognizes an individual with distinguished actions in promoting the professionalization of project management in the international development and humanitarian sectors. The selected winner demonstrates not only leadership in advocating for project management professionalization within the sector, but also in making it available to those who are most in need and to a range of stakeholders in the sector such as community based organizations or local NGOs. The award is named in honor of Alan Harpham, former Board Member of PM4NGOs and Chairman of APMG, and a global citizen dedicated to making this sector and community a better place.

PM4NGOs and APMG are delighted to announce that the recipient of the Alan Harpham Award in 2015 is Liziane Silva, cofounder of Ink.

Ink, a Brazilian organization that has conducted PMDPro training courses since 2011, is responsible for over bringing the PMD Pro methodology to over 1000 people. Ink not only manages PMDPro online and face to face training courses, but also supports organizations and co-manages complex projects. In addition, Ink delivers capacity building projects that includes PMDPro and other methodologies for NGOs in three different locations in Brazil: Curitiba, Sorocaba and Mato Grosso.

We at PM4NGOs as well as the team of APMG International congratulate Liziane and wish her all the very best in the future to succeed in the field of project management for NGOs.
