ABOUT THE AWARDS

The African Youth SDGs Achievers Awards is an initiative of African Youth SDGs Summit. The idea for the awards was one of the recommendations from the maiden summit held in Accra in 2017 where participants recommended to award exceptional youth leaders and institutions contributing to the implementation and achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Even though majority of African youth continue to face a myriad of challenges, It is however worth mentioning that regardless of these difficulties, some youth and institutions have pushed through the glass ceiling and are working hard in defying the odds and challenging the status quo with many of them being innovators, inventors, successful entrepreneurs and social philanthropists whose works are impacting positively on the continent.

The African Youth SDGs Achievers Awards therefore is designed to identify and honour individuals and institutions whose efforts are promoting youth inclusive governance and participation on the continent in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
