African Award For Sustainable Development Goals in ONE 2022

 The 2022 ONE Africa Award will honor African-driven and -led advocacy initiatives that have achieved success at the local, governmental, and international levels. The US$100,000 prize will honor creative African efforts to combat extreme poverty and encourage more such initiatives.

The $100,000 prize will reward creative efforts made in Africa to combat poverty and encourage more of them. To provide the prize to two smaller groups that would be better equipped to handle a lesser monetary award, the prize may be divided into two prizes.

About ONE

A global movement called ONE is working to eradicate severe poverty and preventable disease by the year 2030, enabling everyone to live with dignity and opportunity. We think that the struggle against poverty is about justice and equality, not about charity.

 In addition to empowering citizens to hold their governments accountable, ONE pressures governments to do more to combat extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. This is done through lobbying political leaders in global capitals and cutting-edge grassroots campaigns. 

The supporters of ONE are essential to this effort. They represent all political ideologies and come from all facets of society. They are students, scientists, religious and corporate leaders, as well as artists and activists.

They work tirelessly to organize, mobilize, inform, and advocate for change so that people have the ability to not only survive, but also thrive. 

Teams from ONE work with governments in Abuja, Berlin, Brussels, Dakar, Johannesburg, London, New York, Ottawa, Paris, and Washington, DC to design policies that save and improve millions of lives but are yearly threatened by budget cuts and other priorities.
