Earlier this month, we kicked off our search for the ONE Award 2022 winner with a call to African-lead advocacy organisations. We called on those addressing social development issues through innovative advocacy in promotion of attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and those with the #JobsNowAfrica Campaign to apply to this year’s award.
We asked, and they answered. We received over 500 applications from all across Africa! After reviewing all the applications, we’ve narrowed down to the four finalists.
