5 Years of African-led Impact

Reach for Change, through the support of its partners, invests in exceptional individuals with unique ideas for social change.

We know that our impact cannot always be quantified: we foster empowerment, wellness, hope, dreams, acquisition of skills and knowledge.

Measuring impact, however, has been a priority for us from the very beginning of Reach for Change.

Our Partners


Reach for Change has forged strategic partnerships with leading global companies and Non-Governmental Organizations.

Together, we invest in social entrepreneurs with solutions that create a lasting impact in communities across Africa.
