The Inspire Africa Awards will be a rallying point where Africans recall the beauty, wisdom, the tenacity and patience and ultimately, the accomplishments of our people, a place where we are challenged to be who we are as individuals, as nations and as a continent. But most of all we will celebrate the “Inspire Africa Individual”.
A panel of judges will be set up to determine the most deserving awardees of African and others of non African descent based on the following criteria:
Ordinary people who have done extraordinary things and achieved against all odds
People recognised for their notable achievements
People that have demonstrated integrity and high moral values
People dedicated to community service
Change agents within Africa
Modern day heroes in Africa
Panel members will not be allowed to vote for their employees or family members.
We urge everyone to send in nominations to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org. THE DEADLINE FOR THE RECEIPT OF ENTRIES IS DECEMBER 31st 2008.
The celebration of the “Inspire Africa Individual” is a far overdue tribute to you and me. It is up to you to give that tribute to whom it is due!
I end with a quotation from Nelson Mandela and he says that “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”.
Help us Inspire Africa!
