Sheikh Tihami Ibrahim Nyass Foundation applied with its idea of a community clinic forwarding profits to a girl’s Darra.

Today, we proudly announce to be chosen Second Winner in the “Social Engagement & Education” category of German Afrika! Community Award 2019 sponsored by MoneyGram.

There are many ways to engage in Africa’s rising that deserve recognition by broad public.  Therefore, Za:Media and MoneyGram together designed an award to raise attention for individuals, businesses and NGOs passionately promoting African issues both on the continent and in diaspora. Since 2017, the award has been attracting a growing number of applicants with incredible projects that display plentiful buckets of projects, ideas & businesses proofing Africa’s climb.

The jury’s decision was made in favour of our idea to increase Gambia’s wealth by focusing on basic needs of the most vulnerable: pregnant women in need of a save, hygienic and affordable environment for birthing, and girls from disadvantaged families in need of good housing, education and health service.

This award means a lot to us: Being awarded as role model for Africa, we feel well appreciated in the noble course of our profession and ideals. We will continue to perform our best each and every day to proof the jury’s decision right.
