The $100,000 award will bring recognition to innovative African efforts to fight poverty and will incentivize more of such efforts. The award may be split into two prizes to support two smaller organizations.
Throughout Africa, there is amazing progress by civil society focused on ending extreme poverty and preventable diseases. These new ideas and exciting approaches are designed and implemented by Africans who understand the complexities of bringing about change and transforming lives in their communities.
The ONE Africa Award celebrates these innovations and progress towards achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the world’s blueprint to a better future, ranging from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education.
We are proud to launch the call for applications and nominations for the 2012 ONE Africa Award. Award deadline is Sunday, September 23, 2012, 23:59 SAST / 21:59 GMT/UTC
