In April 2016 more than 700 people gathered in Yerevan, Armenia for a series of events marking the presentation of the inaugural Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity. The Aurora Prize was presented to Marguerite Barankitse from Maison Shalom and REMA Hospital in Burundi, who introduced the Fondation du Grand-Duc et de La Grande-Duchesse du Luxembourg, Fondation Jean-François Peterbroeck (JFP Foundation) and the Fondation Bridderlech Deelen Luxembourg – the organizations she selected as beneficiaries of the $1 million award.
