GAACI 2023



In 2019 Kalo Africa Media birthed a charity arm GRASSROOTS AFRICA AWARDS and CONFERENCE INTERNATIONAL to recognize, reward and encourage individuals supporting African communities. The first edition of GACCI was held in Accra, at the Airport View Hotel in 2019, followed by the second edition which was held in Lagos at Rembrandt Hotel, in 2020, even in the thick period of COVID-19 and the third edition as tight as it was due to the pandemic was held at Benin Royal Hotel, Cotonou, in 2021.



The aim is to recognize spirited individuals that are supporting the African grassroots communities all over Africa and in the African diaspora.
