Future African Leaders Awards Nomination Show-An Unmissable Event
In the search for the leaders of the future, the ‘Future African Leaders Foundation'(FALF) was born out of the vision of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. The aim of the foundation is to, “identify, celebrate and support young Africans who have demonstrated exemplary leadership by impacting their generation positively through education, youth empowerment and mentoring.” FALF is an integral part of COFI.
Awarding the leaders
The carefully structured organization is aimed at addressing the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals. They have created a Growth Initiative Award (GIA) to mentor the future leaders into taking effective action where it is needed. This is aimed at young people between the ages of 16 – 29, in Africa who are impacting their societies positively. Registered participants perform a series of basic, intermediate and advanced services and actions in the wider community.
This scheme allows the leaders of the future to develop their skills and they are guided and directed to success. They may develop administrative, pedagogic, fundraising, campaigning, listening or organizing skills to launch and carry out projects. These GIA awards show how you have progressed with developing your project.
With so many amazing projects lead by the young the Future African Leaders Awards (FALA) are hotly anticipated. The prestigious ceremony held on December 31st will honor the nominees for these awards.
Save the date
On Thursday 26th December the nominees for this award will be announced in a wonderful and glorious ceremony to be televised live on all LoveWorld television networks, Ceflix and the FALF website. It will take place at 6pm+1 GMT.
It is going to be a wonderful event and not one to be missed as Pastor Chris will lead the celebration of the young African leaders of tomorrow. These winners continue to work tirelessly on the local and international stage. Naomi Epoki the 2017 FALA Star winner has taken part in a meeting between the United Nations and the European Union. She addressed the role of youth in such topics as poverty, the death penalty and the rights to legal representation. She also was given the opportunity to speak at two of the most prestigious universities in the world, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
With Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s and humanitarian and financial support, young leaders can take on large-scale projects and make increasingly bigger impacts. These young African activists are taking on more and more projects that are transforming the educational system as well as improving the economy.

Pastor Chris choose Isiah Deng as last year’s Star winner. It was announced by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. These awards winners are noted by the leaders of Nigeria. Also, on stage, last year was the Minister of Youth and Sport Solomon Dalong. The leaders of today herald the leaders of tomorrow.
In the year of ‘Lights,’ 30 extraordinary young lights shone and illuminated the path for others to follow. You must tune in on December 26th to watch the FALA Awards Nomination Show and marvel at those impactful young and influential go-getters.
