Africa Education Medal

Celebrating Africa’s changemakers

The spirit of the Africa Education Medal is to unite leaders from diverse backgrounds, including teachers, NGOs, politicians, tech entrepreneurs, and changemakers from both the public and private sectors, to join forces and create a future where every child in Africa has access to quality education.

Ertug Ayik, Managing Director Middle East and Africa at HP, said:
“A good education empowers not just individuals, but entire communities. Being accessible to everyone education can skill the next generation so that children can develop and grow in a world being transformed by technology. HP has a bold goal to enable better learning outcomes for 150 million people globally by 2030. Only by joining forces between NGOs, government, educators and businesses can we truly improve the education environment. The Africa Education Medal brings together all those who are changing the face of African education, whose tireless work deserves to be celebrated.”

Africa’s most prestigious education accolade honours educators, policymakers, and activists who've dedicated themselves to improving education across the continent. It celebrates the stories of those who've ignited change, inspiring others to take up the torch.
