GUBA Enterprise is far more than a mere organization; it embodies a dynamic movement dedicated to propelling the advancement of diaspora Africans and those on the continent itself. Through strategic partnerships, innovative programs, and community-driven initiatives, GUBA Enterprise creates pathways for growth, fosters cultural exchange, and champions the collective potential of Africa and its people.
At the heart of GUBA Enterprise lies a profound reverence for Africa’s vibrant culture. Our mission resonates with the idea of unity, diversity, and the relentless pursuit of Black excellence. From empowering diaspora Africans to amplifying the brilliance of African heritage, we stand as vanguards of transformative change.
Together, we envision a future where every individual, regardless of their background, can thrive and contribute to Africa’s enduring legacy of greatness.
2019 marked a significant change in the history of the GUBA Awards. For the first time since its inception in 2010, the awards were held in the United States of America as GUBA extended its horizon to acknowledge Ghanaians living in the United States and Canada.
The awards were held during the 74th session of the UN General Assembly and were attended by African dignitaries, including heads of state.
This shifted the focus of GUBA Awards from a Ghanaian diaspora event to a truly pan-African event. GUBA Awards USA brought a significant shift from a Ghanaian-focused awards scheme to a pan-African award scheme.
The new focus accounted for the theme of GUBA Awards USA; the event was held under the theme, “The African Diaspora, the Catalyst of Growth and Innovation.” In addressing the theme, the awards centred on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17, to strengthen global partnerships in achieving the ambitious targets of the 2030 Agenda.
