The Golden Baobab Prize (GBP) was founded by Deborah Ahenkorah, a Bryn Mawr College alumni who was born and grew up in Accra, Ghana and spent time as an intern for both The Global Fund for Children and the European Union Parliament while she was in college. She was named a 2011 Echoing Green Fellow.

The non-profit is essentially a monetary award for young students in Africa to publish short stories. "GBP produces stellar works to supplement educational curricula, open up new windows of thinking for youth, provide a voice for African people and encourage mutual cultural understanding," the Echoing Green profile for Ahenkorah reads. "It also promotes workshops and training to further stimulate the youth literature market in Africa."
