PADEV KIGALI 2020
OCTOBER 11 - 13
PRESENTATION OF THE AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT AWARD - PADEV
The PADEV Prize was created in 2006 in Abidjan by civil society organizations from 12 African countries united around the FONDATION 225 (Burkina Faso) and SAFAM COM INTERNATIONAL (Côte d´Ivoire). Their common goal was to help boost the development of African countries through the establishment of a culture of work, merit and excellence as one of the cardinal values of African society. To achieve this, they chose to promote the works of moral and legal persons who excel in their respective sectors of activity, so that they serve as models for others. The PADEV prize is intended as the tool that allows them to be highlighted. The first edition of the award ceremony for its winners took place in May 2007 at the Hotel du 2-Février in Lomé, Togo. Since then, this ceremony called ‘AFRICAN BUILDERS GALA DINNER’ took place in Libreville, Ouagadougou, Abidjan, Yamoussoukro, Paris, Conakry, Casablanca.
