PiAf 2019 Awards Gala

October 2 @ 18:00 - 22:00

PiAf 2019 Awards Gala

Princeton in Africa, an independent non-profit organization based in Princeton, NJ, develops young leaders committed to the African continent. Since 1999, Princeton in Africa has sent over 600 Fellows to 36 countries to support more than 100 inspiring host organizations across the continent. 

Each fall, Princeton in Africa gathers in New York City to celebrate its Fellows, host organizations and alumni, and bring together outstanding individuals from a diverse range of sectors focused on Africa-related issues. This year, on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Princeton in Africa will be hosting a benefit dinner at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City to celebrate 20 years of creating transformative fellowships across the African continent.

As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we will be honoring five remarkable people: John Damonti, with the Princeton in Africa Founders’ Medal, for his commitment to sub-Saharan Africa, particularly through Bristol Myers-Squibb’s Secure the Future program; Holly Sanderson Garrett, with the Princeton in Africa Medal, in recognition of her incredible contributions to the success of the Princeton in Africa program; Fred Swaniker, with the Princeton in Africa Medal, for his commitment to Africa, youth empowerment, and leadership development, demonstrated through his work with African Leadership Group; Emily Holland, with the Outstanding Alumni Award, honoring the human rights and advocacy work she has done in the years following her Princeton in Africa fellowship; and Renee Hsia, with the Outstanding Alumni Award, honoring her continued commitment to Africa, most notably through her medical initiatives in Eritrea, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, and Uganda.
