Astro Mobile Founder, Mr Munyaradzi Gwatidzo has been listed under the Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD), a United Nations Initiative that lists influential Yong African decedents under 40 years.
The world wide listing is one of the world’s most prestigious listing, which will see the ex-US president Barack Obama officially confer these outstanding young Africans with prestigious awards.
This is In recognition of the International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by United Nation’s General Assembly resolution 68/237 and to be observed from 2015 to 2024.
The Astro Mobile Africa founder has got the attention of the organization after setting up his foot print across some African countries, which has greatly improved his prospects as an Afro-centric entrepreneur.
The Inaugural Awards Dinner for MIPAD Class of 2017 will be held in September 26th, 2017, in the United States of America, New York City.
The Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD) identifies 100 high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors from all around the world as a progressive network of relevant actors to join together in the spirit of recognition, justice and development of Africa, it’s people on the continent and across it’s Diaspora.
Two times a year, MIPAD will gather these young leaders and their mentors on the occasion of prestigious events alternately in Africa and the USA, with some of the highest economic, cultural, spiritual and political personalities.
In proclaiming this Decade, the international community is recognizing that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected.
Around 200 million people identifying themselves as being of African descent live in the Americas. Many millions more live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent.
