In an interview with the COO of Africa Youth Awards, Terser Adamu, he reiterated, “Africa Youth Awards shines a light on the amazing work of young people and organisations who are using their skills, knowledge and experience to progress the African continent and positively move it in the right direction. We strive to recognise their hard work and ingenuity, celebrate their success and share their stories to motivate and inspire others.Over the past three years we’ve seen some amazing examples of the good that strong leadership in African youth can do. Every year our judging panel from a range of charity and business industries face an incredibly difficult job picking the finalists from a host of incredible entries. The level of quality this year has surpassed our expectations. I’m even more encouraged this year as I feel we have strong representation from across all of Africa.
I feel that this is one way that we can contribute to building a stronger, more united but competitive African continent.”
