Google donates $1 million to AIMS: A TED Prize wish

Posted by: Emily McManus


Amy Novogratz just announced from stage that Google has donated $1 million to AIMS, the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. This follows Daphney Singo’s moving talk about how AIMS is helping her gain her PhD in nuclear physics — a standing-ovation story of one South African woman’s determination to become educated. As her mother told her, “Education is the husband who will never leave you.”
