2022 Top 50 NGOs in Africa list announced by ICS Africa

ICS Africa Limited (Impact Concept and Solutions Africa Limited), a leading Pan African Events and Business Solutions Company has released the Top 50 NGOS in Africa 2022 list.

The list includes top local and international institutions who through their works have been social impact game-changers and whose influence in Africa cannot be underestimated. They have also contributed a significant amount of finances and expertise to ensure growth and development in various sectors on the continent.

Through their works, these organizations are identified as pacesetters whose initiatives and support have changed the lives of millions of persons across the African continent.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation, UNICEF, GIZ, CAMFED, Mastercard Foundation, MTN Foundation Ghana, MEST Africa, Vodafone Foundation, AMREF, Tony Elumelu Foundation, Operation Smile, Smile Foundation, Doctors without Boarders and MTN Foundation and other laudable NGOs in Africa are noted for their fight against climate change, border crisis and poverty. Others have also played key roles in the areas of health, technology, entrepreneurship and terrorism.

The inaugural list was compiled and published in March 2020 to highlight the influence of NGOs at the thick of the coronavirus pandemic while the 2022 list is launched in September to commemorate World Charity Day.

Africa’s leading PR, rating, and research organization, Avance Media have been partners since the maiden compilation.

Founder and Chief Executive of ICS Africa, Emmaline Datey, noted that the annual rankings of Top NGOs in Africa will continue to serve as a motivation to encourage NGOs or social impact organizations who have made a difference in Africa to continue to make lasting impact as well as encourage more emerging NGOs to continue to grow their brands through selfless service to Africans in consistent excellence, integrity, creativity and innovation.
