A CELEBRATION OF “AFRICAN MEN” CHANGE-MAKERS LEADING CHANGE IN DEVELOPMENT ACROSS AFRICA- MEET AFRICA’S 40 IMPACTFUL MEN IN THE DEVELOPMENT SECTOR.
Just like the African proverb, “A vision on its own is not enough, hard work & dedication is required to make that vision a reality”. Today, we are celebrating 40 great African men leading the “African Renaissance” with their vision, action, and impact. They are transforming Africa through their work and action.
Forty impactful men working actively in development across the continent of Africa were selected and celebrated to commemorate the “International Men’s Day Celebration”.
They represent a truly pan-African diversity from different African countries. The list highlights 40 great men that are actively leading the development sector, impacting their local communities through their work in international and local organizations, private and public sector companies, nonprofit organizations, and health. This recognition is unique as there is a need for increased focus and investment in the men who are leading development conversations in unconventional roles in Africa.
Nominations were received publicly to identify men in varying roles in development from different African countries, and 40 young men were selected to join the list of Africans leading change in development.
Mrs. Chidi Koldsweat, the Founder, Donors for Africa Foundation, says, “These men were nominated, selected, and celebrated based on their achievement, great impact, and commitment towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Every man on the list can be identified and tangible results were seen in their local communities as making a difference.
We were also careful to identify men in the formal development sector who may not be founders but are equally using their skills and competence to create life-changing results’’.
We believe it is imperative to shine the light on these men’s various roles as they work continuously to accelerate the #2030 Sustainable Development Goal and the #2063 African Union Agenda.’’
