One of Africa’s journalist turned businesswoman and humanitarian, Ms Ayanda Ngwane, has bagged Nigeria Goodwill Ambassadors Award 2018, for selfless and positive contributions towards humanitarian services as well as building and fostering goodwill in Nigeria.
Ngwane, who is the chief executive officer of Ayanda Media Networks spanning across Angola, Nigeria and South Africa, was recognised for helping to create awareness on issues of grave concerns affecting the less privileged people including the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in crisis plagued part of Nigeria through the Ayanda Ngwane Foundation.
The awards platform was instituted by the Goodwill Ambassador Events Agency to honour and celebrate both old and young individuals including organisations that are selflessly and positively giving hope and care to the needy around them, imparting positively to their environment.
According to the organisers, Ngwane is among the award recipients who have distinguished themselves in the areas of peace building, youth empowerment, humanitarian services, community development/job creation and the general well being of humanity.
The president of Nigeria Goodwill Ambassadors Awards, Chris Odey, noted that such acts have hitherto gone without being applauded, adding that the award was also created to correct the ‘abnormally’ .
“The awards have not been created to massage egos, rather to bring to fore the fact that such great deeds are being carried out albeit quietly.
“We believe that with the presentation of awards and accolades, others will follow suit and in to doing create opportunities for fellow Nigerians across the world. We believe in the goodness of mankind and believe that our humble effort will assist in the general development of our world, one step at a time,” Odey said.
