The 2016 ONE Africa Award recognises Africa-driven; Africa led advocacy efforts that have demonstrated success at community, national or regional level. It aims to recognise, reward, and advance the exceptional work of organisations, founded by Africans and based in Africa, dedicated to helping Africa achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The $100,000 award will bring recognition to innovative African efforts to fight poverty and will incentivise more of such efforts.
Award recipients can be exceptional organisations and other groups demonstrating commitment and success in assisting Africans in meeting one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through innovative advocacy based programs.
- Qualified recipients may be engaged in direct services to achieve any of the SDGs but must demonstrate a strong advocacy component integral to the delivery and success of their programs.
- Qualified recipients may be advocacy/pressure groups and think tanks engaged in governance activities such as the monitoring of flows of resources and/or holding governments accountable to commitments to MDG attainment.
BONUS: For the 2016 prize, organisations that demonstrate innovative ideas and approaches towards projects, initiatives and plans to make popular the Global Goals for Sustainable Development in their community or region will receive up to 5 bonus points in the scoring of their applications.
