Throughout Africa, there is amazing progress to end extreme poverty and preventable disease. New ideas and exciting approaches are transforming lives. The ONE Africa Award celebrates progress toward achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, 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. ONE applauds the progress made, and looks forward to solutions for the challenges still ahead.
ONE will recognize the Africa- driven, African led advocacy efforts that have demonstrated success at a community, national, or regional level. By honouring the commitment and progress on the ground, we hope that new efforts can be inspired and more lives can be saved.
Who Qualifies: Individuals, organizations or other groups based in Africa that can demonstrate commitment and success in advocacy to promote the attainment of one or more of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are invited to apply.
Applications have now closed for the 2012 ONE Africa Award. Short-listed finalists will be announced in November 2012.
