Who We Are

Our story

Mwape Peer Awards was established in 2010 by Ruth and James Mwape, of New Jersey, USA. This non-profit initiative was part of the couple’s plan to give back to the people by providing a platform to recognize those individuals who, without the benefit of visibility or influence, made a difference through their creativity, energy and sheer tenacity. Initially the prestigious awards were initially given to the Zambian unsung heroes and heroines only, but in 2014, it was opened up to all Africans in and outside Africa. The 2010 inaugural awards ceremonies were held at the Holiday Inn Hotel, Washington D.C. Central/White House on Rhode Island Avenue on October 20th. The carefully chosen date, also marked James and Ruth’s 20th Wedding Anniversary.
