Applications call for King Hamad Youth Empowerment Award To Achieve The SDGs. The award recognizes young people’s endeavor to be effective and productive citizens, contributing to the welfare of their communities and environment, as well as institutions that improve the enabling environment and infrastructure for youth to make an impact, in all United Nations Member States.

The kingdom of Bahrain believes that investing in the capabilities, energies; and ingenuity of young people brings about the best yields for sustainable development and the future well-being of any nation. That is why, at the national level, the kingdom prioritizes pioneering initiatives that help youth enhance their capabilities—through training, skill-building, and experience-exchange, expand their opportunities to choose a future that they desire and contribute to the welfare of their community.


The King Hamad Award for Youth Empowerment to achieve the SDGs (KHA) includes two main categories; one for youth action, granting 5 Awards, and a second for youth enablers granting 3 Awards. In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak has wreaked havoc across the globe, deeply affecting people’s health, livelihoods, and prospects for the future, adversely affecting and in some cases even reversing gains made in the pursuit of the SDGs. Under its two categories, this year’s edition of the Award will particularly consider youth-led and youth-enabled action that helps mitigate the immediate, medium- and long-terms impacts of COVID-19.


  • Youth Category: It includes up to five awards, each including a financial prize of USD20,000
  • Youth Enablers: It includes up to three recognition awards. Winning submission from NGOs/Foundations only may be eligible for an accompanying prize of USD 25,000.


This category is open to applicants from all UN member states. Applicants could be

  • individual youth above the age of 15 years and below the age of 35 years.
  • A youth-led entity (defined as any entity, in which at least 50% of current management/leadership is below the age of 35); or
  • A youth-focused entity (defined as any entity, in which at least 90% of resources serve youth above 15 and below 35 years of age).


  • Submission is free to all applicants.
  • All applications must be submitted through the official online platform of the King Hamad Award.
  • All applications must be submitted in English.
