What is it about?
The KBF Africa Prize rewards African organisations which contribute to sustainably improving the lives of people in Africa. It pays particular attention to initiatives that tackle challenges in Africa in transformative ways, which are resilient and adaptable in a constantly changing context, which have a long-term vision, and which empower people to take their future into their own hands.
The KBF Africa Prize is awarded every other year. It seeks to draw attention to the many inspirational stories, challenges and successes emerging from the African continent.
Beyond its monetary value of 200.000 euros, it offers its laureates unique opportunities to increase their visibility and promote their cause to international audiences.
The KBF Africa Prize laureate is carefully selected by an independent Selection Committee consisting of 12 international experts.
