The annual Al-Sumait Prize honors individuals or institutions who help to advance economic and social development, human resources development and infrastructure in the African continent. We are also committed to bringing more transparency and accountability so that the philanthropic efforts of those who want to make a difference can be shown to the world.
Introduced after His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah, the Amir of the State of Kuwait presented this novel idea, it is a memento for all those Good Samaritans out there who are working towards the advancement of economic, infrastructural and social development on the African continent.
With more than 100+ people, nonprofits and business communities attending every year, the Al-Sumait are one of the largest celebration of giving.
