FADA Awards

Finland Afro Diaspora Awards (FADA) was established to reward and celebrate exceptional performance and outstanding achievements of black people in Finland. 
The minority hardworking Africans in Finland have not had so much recognition like the rest of the other communities in the Nordic nation. This is the reason why we have decided to come up with an annual event that will be recognizing all Africans in Finland vis-à-vis what they do and how they are Influencing others.

The Goal

The goal of the awards is to integrate and also maintain the African culture in the society we live in,

 bridging the gap through appreciating the most hardworking Africans in Finland.

This Edition
In this maiden edition, there are 10 categories of hardworking Africans in Finland that we would like to recognize.

We would like to inform the general public that the award is mainly about inspiring Africans to work hard, achieve their dreams as well as get more involved in societal activities.

No Competition

It is not about challengers/competitors but rather that person that inspires many at their different levels and in different criteria.

We celebrate individuals with  their unique achievements.
