The 2015 ONE Africa Award recognizes Africa-driven; Africa led advocacy efforts that have demonstrated success at community, national or regional level. The award aims to recognize, reward, and advance the exceptional work of organizations, founded by Africans and based in Africa, dedicated to helping Africa achieve the Millennium Development Goals. The $100,000 award will bring recognition to innovative African efforts to fight poverty and will incentivize more of such efforts.
As the world prepares to adopt the new set of development goals, the ONE Campaign invites civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations and other groups based in Africa to apply for the $100,000 (USD) 2015 ONE Africa Award. Eligible organizations include those that can demonstrate commitment and success in their advocacy to promote the attainment of one or more of the Millennium Development Goals. The 2015 ONE Award provides a bridge between previous efforts geared towards MDGs and future efforts to contribute to the new development agenda enshrined in what will be called Sustainable Development Goals, by 2030.
“As we have learnt over the years through the ONE Award process, there are hundreds of African organizations that are working to make a positive difference in their communities, usually with minimum resources and sometimes under unfriendly environments. Our goal with the ONE Award is to recognize such organizations. The 2015 ONE Award s is particularly special, coming at a time the world is preparing to adopt the new Sustainable development Goals (SDGs) which we believe when adopted in September by the UN General Assembly, will provide a broader and deeper framework for anti-poverty organizations and activists to do more by 2030” — Dr. Sipho S. Moyo, ONE Africa’s Executive Director
