The United States is truly a remarkable place. It is touted as the greatest nation on earth, not because of its military might or size of its economic, but because it is the land where people of different social, religious and racial backgrounds came together to create a remarkable success story…and then the rest of the world followed.
The African diaspora is part of the success story of the United States; their hard work and determination to create a brighter future for their children and grandchildren have been felt for centuries – from slaves singing songs of freedom on plantations many centuries ago, to free men and women shaping the world of business, sports, technology and politics today.
This is worth celebrating. This is why GUBA Awards is in the United States – to celebrate the achievements of Ghanaians and African business and individuals based in the United States.
GUBA Awards promotes closer economic, cultural and social links between Ghana and the United Kingdom. Launched in 2010 as the GUBA Awards, the annual event celebrates and acknowledges the contribution of Ghanaian and African based businesses and individuals in the United Kingdom.
