The EAWA (Extraordinary African Woman Achiever) Awards is a philanthropic initiative and a social enterprise created in Ireland to identify, honour, celebrate, and promote the achievements and contributions to society made by African women and women of African heritage while sharing positive stories about Africa, its people, and its’ beautiful, vibrant and diverse cultures.
EAWA goes yet a step further to recognize friends of Africa on the continent and those in the Diaspora that contribute to development in Africa and impact lives. These include businesses, organizations, educational institutions, aid workers, aid and development agencies, students, individuals, volunteers among others. EAWA provides a platform for them to highlight the vital and unique services they provide.
EAWA also acknowledges exemplary male role models who demonstrate a strong commitment to gender empowerment with the ‘African Man of the Year Award’.
