Global Leadership Award Recipients
Our Global Leadership Award recognizes extraordinary leadership occurring in communities in sub-Saharan Africa. While the recipient might be involved with or employed by a non-governmental organization, the award recognizes the work and life of the individual.
The lives of community leaders are stressful, and rarely are these individuals adequately compensated. In addition to demanding careers, they often have competing demands for their time and resources. To alleviate some of these pressures, and reduce the possibility of burnout, recipients of the Global Leadership Award receive $5,000.
The Global Leadership Award is announced annually on December 10, Human Rights Day.
