The Global Gift founder Maria Bravo met with Prince William in London where they both participated in an Anti-Bullying workshop that was organized by the foundation in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Duke of Cambridge personally congratulated Maria Bravo for the work of the Global Gift Foundation and expressed his intention to support the charitable initiatives confirming his desire to participate in the upcoming Global Gift Gala in London in 2016.

“The Prince has shown much interest in our foundation, our activities and our social commitment worldwide. It is an honour to have his support, and to count on the presence of a representative of the Family at the Sixth Global Gift Gala in London next 2016”, María Bravo stated.



Among the programs developed by the “The Diana Award” foundation ” it highlights ‘Anti-Bullying’, as a leading initiative answering  to the large number of bullying cases suffered by some children. Using its 15,000 ambassadors, it trains young people to hold workshops and meetings in more than 3,000 schools across the UK.

The Duke of Cambridge and one of the founders of Global Gift attended one of these training sessions, at Hammersmith Academy, where children are taught to recognize the early signs of cyberbullying and tips to prevent it. Both heard testimonies from young people who were victims of bullying.

Maria Bravo states: “it has been a great honour to attend this event with the Duke of Cambridge and be commended for the work we carry out all over the world by a Spanish Foundation founded in Marbella. We back all the projects The Diana Awards carries out and are very excited about the Duke of Cambridge’s possible involvement in the Gala in 2016”.

The relationship between Global Gift Foundation and The Diana Award dates back to 2014 when the British institution received the ‘Global Gift Award of Excellence’ at the V edition of the Global Gift Gala in London.

The Diana Award was established in memory of the Princess of Wales and pays tribute to her belief that “young people have the power to improve the world.” It has the support of the two sons of Diana, honouring the legacy of their mother and actively participating in the programs, as well as that of the team ‘The Royal Charity Forum’. William and Harry transmit first-hand the mission of the foundation: to inspire and recognize the social actions of the young.
