The 2022 edition of Grow, Unite, Build, Africa (GUBA) Awards is scheduled to take place on September 29, at the Kigali Convention Centre in Rwanda.
The ceremony, which is the 13th edition, will celebrate community organisations and role models from across the globe, including entrepreneurs, charities, media moguls, and activists.
Commenting on the upcoming event, GUBA Enterprise president and CEO, Dentaa Amoateng MBE, said, “The GUBA Awards this year seek to celebrate a historical hero within the Rwandan and African communities.
“Under the theme ‘Ndabaga – Drumbeat of Dreamers and Legends’, the Awards strive to convey the power of determination and focus. The story of Ndabaga is a keystone of Rwandan folklore representing bravery and determination”.
“If ever there was a time to unite and celebrate the best of diversity, it is now. It is incredibly important to recognise the achievements of role models and community organisations across the world for their work and impact.
“So that we as Africans, can tell our own stories. The GUBA Awards, therefore, aim to reward individuals who continue to persist and show great courage within their various fields,” she added.
Already, the Rwandan Convention Board and the government of Rwanda have both endorsed the awards and are hoping to welcome guests into the capital, Kigali.
Designed to highlight the most inspirational and trailblazing individuals within Africa and its diaspora community, the GUBA Awards continue to gain endorsements from high-profile figures such as Nana Akufo-Addo (President of Ghana), Jean-Claude Kassi Brou (The President of the ECOWAS Commission) and many others.
Past winners of GUBA awards include Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Dr Natalia Kanem, Dr Diane Karusisi, Vice President Epsy Campbell Barr, Sir Sam Jonah (Executive Chairman, Jonah Capital), and Cherie Blair (Barrister, Writer), Patrick Awuah (Founder of Ashesi University), Richelieu Dennis among several high profile individuals.
