Four awards amongst ASHC partnership

Celebration time amongst the ASHC partnership…

We congratulate our partners ICRISAT and Agro-Insight on coming first in their category at the 2014 International Visual Communications Association awards ceremony held at Grosvenor House Hotel, London on 28 March. The category was the Industry Award for Communication Effectiveness sponsored by The Edge Picture Company. ASHC supported this project with funds to translate the Fighting Striga films into additional languages including French and Portuguese.

Each year the African Union formally recognises contributions made by African scientists by presenting the African Union Kwame Nkrumah Scientific Awards. It makes the award to encourage the continent’s scientists to publish, mentor and do research that is applicable in the African context. ASHC is pleased to share the information that the 2013 winner in the Earth and Life Sciences category is our technical advisory group chairperson Andre Bationo.
