"You have used your voice, compassion and special relationship with the public to create a better world," Contactmusic quoted U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as telling Theron, while awarding her the title. The Oscar winner has founded the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project with the goal of promoting HIV/AIDS education for impoverished children and their families in South Africa.
