The Africa Centre for Peace Building (AFCOPB) and Awake Africa Magazine will confer a Heroes award on Golden Age Leaders (GALs World) at this year's Community Heroes Award's night for their Red Tour Project.

Red Tour Project which is an innovation of Golden Age Leaders is targeted at giving out free pads to the less privilege girls in rural areas. Last year the team was able to donate numerous sanitry pads to girls in Senior High Schools and rural areas.

Golden Age Leaders will pick up the award on September 20, 2018, at the University of Professional Studies-Accra, Ghana.
