Our grant aims to provide financial support and resources to individuals, groups, and organizations committed to making a positive impact in the field of public health advocacy with $1,000. We believe that real change starts at the community level, and we are dedicated to fostering initiatives that address pressing health issues, promote preventive measures, and drive equitable access to healthcare.

The 12th African Achievers Awards and International Summit held at the elegant Imperial College, part of the Imperial Venues, Queens Gate, South Kensington, London was a huge success. This exclusive  event was attended by 150 dignitaries, organisations and industries from across the globe.


The venue initially intended for this event, the House of Parliament at Westminster, had to be changed with the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Every year the choice of venue is for the purpose of setting an international stage to showcase the Top African Achievers in Africa and the pursuit for excellence.
