This event will take place at the National Theatre, on Saturday, June 17th, 2017.
Speaking about the event, Mr. Patrick Prado, Managing Director, said the Allianz Awards 2017 is aimed at “celebrating Ghanaian men and women who have defied all odds to prove that the world belongs to those who dare.”
Allianz Awards 2017 promises to be a magical night with special guest appearances as well as music performances by Efya, an icon of girl power, and M.anifest, one of the top emcees in Ghana, and others.
The Ghana amputee football team, “The Black Challenge” will also be present as event ambassadors.
The awards to be presented on the night will take the form of the Adinkra symbol Kwatekye Atiko, which represents bravery, valor, fearlessness, and leadership.
This ancient symbol has four bars – said to symbolize arms and legs – pointing out in opposite directions and two spirals curling in towards the center. The bars remind us to reach out and grasp what can help us or protect ourselves by warding off what cannot.
The spirals encourage us to look within ourselves – mind and spirit – for the strength to endure, the wisdom to make the right choices and the patience to wait for things all in their proper time.
In this way, Kwatekye Atiko reminds us not only to hope, but also gather all the facts, learn all we can about what we are up against and then focus on what can be done.
OAfrica is a charity organization that promotes family-based care for orphans and other vulnerable kids. OAfrica’s programs support separated children by building strong families to eliminate child abandonment and create safe, stable and loving families and communities.
