The BBF Awards Africa founder is passionate about supporting disadvantaged young people, hence the BBF Awards Africa is collaborating with Jumbo Prospects CIC. A initiative spearheaded by our founder. Jumbo Prospects social enterprise works with young and disadvantaged people aged 14 to 25 in overcoming barriers and challenges to have fulfilling lives and careers.

BBF Awards Africa is a movement of hope, we believe that through our Economic Empowerment Initiative and the need to celebrate African Innovation in Business and Entrepreneurship, Technology, Fashion, and Beauty, together we can continue to change the plight of our young people.

We pledge to give a percentage of the proceeds from the awards towards helping them transform their lives.

BBF Awards are a missing jig-saw piece that has been missing for too long..

The work that is conducted by Black Beauty Communications is highly commendable and I believe that by adding your voice in the fight against abuse and inequality against ‘Our Girls’, we can continue to effect real change.

I endorse this project and encourage others to join me.
