Our foundation receives ‘2022 Lotus Leadership Award’

April 8, 2022

We are honored to have been awarded the ‘2022 Lotus Leadership Award,’ for our contribution to women empowerment and gender equality in Asia by The Asia Foundation and Lotus Circle.

It’s a privilege to have been recognized for our work by The Asia Foundation and Lotus Circle, who are also committed to expanding women’s and girls’ opportunities and advancing gender equality. This, alongside our 15th anniversary, has given us even more motivation to continue our dedication to empowering the individuals and organizations that need it.

From our founding year 2007, we have aimed to give back to local communities where G-Star products are made – India, Bangladesh, Vietnam and China.

“We are very honored with this award. When trying to explain our mission we always say that we don’t believe in charity, we believe in self-empowerment. That’s why we team up with expert partners to set up educational and entrepreneurial programs for these young girls and women, significantly increasing their chances in life.” – Yung Joo Lockhorn Lamberts (Managing Director of the GSRD Foundation)
