The 100 Most Inspiring Change Makers in Ghana: According to HAG


The Humanitarian Awards Global (HAG) has unveiled its list 100 Most Inspiring Change Makers in Ghana for 2023.

In its mission to inspire the next generation of change makers in Ghana who are passionate about making a difference and challenging the status quo, Humanitarian Awards Global (HAG) has released its annual publication to highlight and celebrate the remarkable achievements of individuals.

HAG has been actively involved in reshaping the narrative around change makers through award ceremonies, educational initiatives, summits, and ranking publications. "Through this project, we not only aim to celebrate change makers but also to showcase the individual and collective efforts of those who are genuinely inspiring the next generation of leaders, both within and beyond our borders."

The selection process for these individuals involved nominations, thorough background checks on their impact activities, and board justifications to shortlist the top 100 individuals for the year under review. The criteria for shortlisting included leadership drive, influence, consistency, and, most importantly, community and social impact.

Every year, some previously recognized change makers are included in the list if they still meet the criteria and metrics, while new names also emerge.

This publication provides these agents of change with an invaluable opportunity to be inspired and to continue pursuing their passion for improving lives and making a difference in their respective fields.
