Covid-19 Update:

Due to travel and large gatherings restrictions around the world in face of the corona virus pandemic, the 11th annual Mwape Peer Awards will be a Virtual Event on Zoom and will also be streamed live on Facebook and other social media platforms on Saturday September 19th, 2020 starting at 3:00 pm New York time.

You can all participate from the comfort of your own homes with family and friends as you toast a glass of wine or champagne. Let’s celebrate and honor our 2020 heroes and heroines from around the world.

Selected winners will still be given an opportunity to say a few words. Award Trophies and Plaques will be mailed to all the winners in a timely manner. Please, feel free to ask any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting in person when public health conditions allow possibly at the 12th annual event in 2021 God willing.

Ruth and James Mwape
Executive Directors, New Jersey, USA

Ruth and I would like to express our gratitude to all of you who attended our 10th Annual Mwape Peer Awards ceremony and to all of you who assisted in making it a huge success. It feels like just yesterday when we first met in Washington, D.C. for the inaugural event in October, 2010. Each year we see and meet people who come to celebrate with us, all those among us who make a difference in their respective fields and communities around the world. Listening to their stories, we are always inspired and we hope you all have been inspired by listening too.

Each year we have people from all walks of life and social economic statuses. We sit and mingle with homemakers, doctors, engineers, social workers, scientists, nurses, students, educators, leaders, politicians, diplomats, etc. We all attend to celebrate each other’s success.

Each year our team works tirelessly to make each event possible. Ruth and I are thankful to everyone including our sponsors without whom we wouldn’t be able to host the event. You are the building blocks of Mwape Peer Awards, Inc. As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization we depend on the kindness and generosity of our donors and we encourage you, our friends to partner with us as donors. Thank you for your support.
