Update to 2011 Africa Prize Recipients
August 1, 2011
During this time of current difficulties in Malawi, The Hunger Project remains committed to the empowerment of the women, men and children of Malawi. The recent and unprecedented conflicts in the country have prompted the Global Board and senior staff of The Hunger Project, in consultation with the independent jury, to withdraw the Africa Prize for Leadership for the Sustainable End of Hunger from President Bingu wa Mutharika of Malawi. While we do acknowledge the past accomplishments of the President for the sustainable end of hunger, this award is given not only in recognition for past achievements, but also for ongoing leadership and the prospects for future progress to end hunger.
