The GUBA Awards is a non-profit organization which donates proceeds towards charitable schemes operating within the Ghanaian community, and provides an “engaging platform” for promoting greater cultural diversity in the UK as well as raising the profile of Ghana. In 2012 the GUBA Foundation was set up to tackle a broad spectrum of issues affecting Ghanaian and African communities.
GUBA has been acknowledged and endorsed for its role in recognizing Ghanaian achievements in the UK, as well as promoting the national interest of Ghana and the African community. In July 2013, the GUBA Awards received an International Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Excellence Award, beating over 100 nominees from the UK corporate sector.
Meanwhile this year’s GUBA awards would be held in November at the O2 in London.
