International Association of World Peace Advocates unveils nominees for Africa Peace Advocate Awards 2023
The International Association of World Peace Advocates (IAWPA), which organizes the Africa Peace Advocate Awards (APAA), has announced the nominees for this year’s ceremony.
The Africa Peace Advocate Award is a prestigious honor that celebrates individuals or organizations that have significantly contributed to advancing peace and harmony throughout the African continent.
This year’s event is scheduled for September 21, 2023, at the Pottersville Church Conference Hall in East Legon Hills, Santoe, Accra.
The auspicious ceremony will gather a confluence of distinguished personalities, politicians, philanthropists, and peace advocates from across the world.
It is expected to be graced by Ambassador Per Stephan, the World Peace President from Denmark; Ambassador Emmanuel Nweke, the International Peace Spokesman; Dr. Sammy David from Liberia and Ambassador Livingstone Banjagala from Uganda, among other influential figures from global and African peace-keeping organizations, United Nations delegates, and diplomats.
The Africa Peace Advocate Awards 2023, which is being organized on the theme “Action for Africa Peace,” promises to be a memorable occasion ripe with opportunities for connection, dialogue, learning, and inspiration. Attendees can expect enlightening discussions about peace and valuable networking opportunities.
There would be 30 awards targeting 30 deserving awardees who would be honored for their remarkable commitments to championing peace initiatives within the African continent.
According to IAWPA’s executive board, the selection process took into account recommendations, thorough background checks, social impact, advocacy, and the promotion of peace.
“The carefully chosen uncategorized list includes Ghanaians from various sectors of the nation, including humanitarian organizations, non-profits, NGOs, international peace initiatives, UN SDGs advocates, businesses, religious organizations, individuals, politicians, media personalities, and public figures, who are promoting peace and championing Africa’s development.
Through their varied platforms, jobs, and professions, these peace activists and philanthropists are “reshaping history, bridging inequality gaps, developing leaders, and establishing new paths for wealth creation,” according to the organizer.
