Eastern Cape Hustlers Awards (ECHA)

is a celebration that honors outstanding Eastern Cape natives and highlights their intelligence, fortitude, and accomplishments. The youth, game changers, and go-getters from underprivileged communities who work to improve the world will also receive special attention during this event.

The ECHA was created to celebrate the accomplishments of Eastern Cape natives. We believe that everyone has the potential to be a game changer, regardless of their background or circumstance. By honoring those who have overcome adversity and achieved success, we hope to inspire others to do the same.

The ECHA is more than just an awards show. It’s a movement. A movement to empower our youth, our game changers, and our go-getters. We believe that together we can change the world.

The ECHA was established in 2022 to recognize, highlight, and honor outstanding leaders, innovators, and game changers in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. With an unemployment rate of 27.6%, the Eastern Cape has the second-highest unemployment rate in the country. The awards seek to boost everyone’s prospects of finding employment, fair participation in economic opportunities, and personal empowerment.

The ECHA is organized by a team of volunteers passionate about making a difference in the lives of people in the Eastern Cape. We are supported by a number of sponsors who share our vision and mission.
