The African NGO Awards are established to recognise outstanding development programs, agencies, leaders, projects and success stories across Africa. The awards will be presented to award winners to honor excellence, innovation and dedication in the work for social and economic development at national, sub-regional and Africa regional levels, as well as the individuals who champion these efforts. Organizations are selected based on their contribution to national and regional development for one or more of the categories and criteria stated by the Committee.
Organised by the African Council of Non-Governmental Organisations (AFRONGO), in collaboration with strategic partners across Africa, the awards cover a wide variety of humanitarian, development, human rights, gender, governance, child protection, and other categories and provide for both the public and private sectors to be honoured. These awards honor excellence, leadership and the creative use of development efforts, finance and other resources to move Africa forward. The awards also honor the cutting edge use of development cooperation to support innovation and energy development in Africa. These awards honour individuals and agencies alike to build a distinguished and recognized African NGO sector.
The African NGO Awards will recognise excellence, demonstrated support and commitment, through professional services, best practices and sound management principles, corporate governance, good stewardship, innovation and effectiveness in improving the lives of the poor and those most vulnerable in local communities in dAfrican countries. As an NGO sector-driven initiative, the awards will select and honour the legacy of aid workers who lost their lives in service these past years, and celebrate the achievements of the leading local, regional and international NGOs and their leaders, both at the headquarters and field levels. In addition, it will honour donor agencies, UN institutions, regulatory authorities, and private foundations and corporations that have exemplify through their leadership excellence, hard work, innovation and commitment, above and beyond their expected responsibilities, the principles upon which the African NGO Awards was founded.
