ONE Africa is celebrating African-led efforts towards achieving the united Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 2016 ONE Africa Award comes at a critical time when we have seen numerous challenges across the globe from famine, civil unrest, and rising income inequality. Our continent is subject to a lot of these challenges which if not checked through bold and innovative actions, will thwart the ambitions to consign extreme poverty to the history books.
The 2016 ONE Africa Award recognizes Africa-driven; Africa led advocacy efforts that have demonstrated success at community, national or regional level. It aims to recognize, reward, and advance the exceptional work of organisations, founded by Africans and based in Africa, dedicated to helping Africa achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The $100,000 award will bring recognition to innovative African efforts to fight poverty and will incentivize more of such efforts. Are you a young Pan-African Leader with a unique vision of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals here in Africa? If you are, then apply for the ONE Africa Awards 2016 here. Application closes November 25th, 2016.
