Listening to the different invitees at the Africa Leadership Awards, I have seen an Africa which is willing to progress, a continent that is seeking new horizons and a united front of bright and wonderful people who have the interest of their people at heart and ready to make success theirs for a brighter future. This as a fellow leader and entrepreneur has given me new hope to create a better Africa for the coming generations.

It was indeed a very touching moment for me to be part of the Africa Leadership Award. The teaching profession is known to be one which is very difficult. Often the contribution of the teacher is recognised by the learner a long time after the latter has parted from the teacher, on rare occasions do we get the feedback on how we have contributed to shaping the lives of our students, who are always so dear to us. Teachers are well aware that they play a very important role given that they are often the role models of the students.
The event was very well organised, with facilitators ensuring the participation of the audience with the speakers. The Key Note Speaker was amazing and someone who has the welfare of Africa at heart.

World Sustainability – progressive, possible recommendations have to be implemented (or else all good that has been discussed will remain behind closed doors of the Conference Centers) or in the corridors of the best Universities in the African Continent.
We are currently living in 2 worlds apart, one (the academic, public and private enterprise) the other one is the one that we come from the NGO world that is working with the people on the ground from grass root levels. We need to try and bring both closer together to achieve the desired results.
Sustainability is essential for the survival of any organization
Dinesh Shukla, President, American International University West Africa
The ceremony itself was fantastic, especially your introduction which was moving and very inspirational. I am truly amazed at dedication and professionalism of your entire team. Well Done!

The Award ceremony was a great opportunity to meet colleagues from other Universities. What struck me is the humility and sincerity of all awardees and the genuineness of their efforts to help others achieve their best potential and make a positive difference to humanity.

Leadership ensures that societies prosper, yet the reverse is corruption, war and absence of public services. Thus, while the call for SDGs is social inclusiveness, and environmentally sustainable economic growth; SDGs are just a wish list of goals based on fine ideals but lacking means of realization. The impression one gets is that it looks like something serious is being done about development when, in fact, governments are just carrying on as before.
Juliette Biao Koudenoukpo, PhD, Director & Regional Representative, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
December 7, 2016 was a special day with the Green Future Leadership Award in Mauritius. I feel privileged to have been part of something so special. This leadership award reinforced my determination and commitment to support African countries to go green
