The ONE Africa Award

The ONE Africa Award celebrates African efforts aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world’s blueprint for a better future. SDG targets range from halving extreme poverty, to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education.

The ONE Africa Award recognizes Africa-driven and Africa-led advocacy efforts that have demonstrated success at the community, national or regional level. The award rewards and advances the exceptional work of organizations founded by Africans and based in Africa, dedicated to advancing development goals in Africa. The US$100,000 award will recognize innovative African initiatives to fight extreme poverty and incentivize more of such efforts.

After a public vote, we are delighted to announce that this year’s winner of the award is the Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC)! Established in Nigeria in 2003, this NGO aims to increase citizen participation in governance processes with a focus on improving the integrity of the public and private sectors. Congratulations to PPDC and well done to the other three finalists and thank you to the organizations that applied!
