Throughout Africa, there is amazing progress by civil society focused on ending extreme poverty and preventable disease. These new ideas and exciting approaches are designed and implemented by Africans who understand the complexities of bringing about change and transforming lives in their communities. The ONE Africa Award celebrates these innovations and progress towards achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), 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. The ONE Africa Award applauds the progress of unsung heroes and organizations and looks forward to solutions for the challenges still ahead. The award 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. The 2011 call for applications is NOW OPEN to 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 MDGs.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is September 16th, 2011.
