Mike McHugo, Founder of EFA, is awarded an MBE in 2019 New Year Honours.

EFA Honoured

I was awarded an MBE in the new year honours list in early 2019. When asked if I would accept, I said I would, but on behalf of Education For All (EFA). For me this is about EFA and is recognition of its good works and its achievement to date, the award really should belong to EFA collectively and in my mind it does rather than an individual.

This has only been possible because of many peoples work and effort and generosity in allow EFA to finance the build and run 5, soon to be 6, houses providing the gift of education that many in our society take for granted.

There are people who deserve a special mention who have made this possible – I and they, know who they are. This is a team effort and for me a team award for EFA so congratulations officers, house mothers, past and future volunteers past future and current donors without whom we EFA would not be able to do our work.

I read the other day these words attributed to Confucius:

‘Education breeds Confidence
Confidence breeds Hope
Hope breeds Peace’
