Our Impact

The core of what we do centres around impact.
Impact on social entrepreneurs: to help them develop and build lasting solutons for African children and youth. Impact at a large scale: to ensure that the work our entrepreneurs do benefits the most children possible. And impact on society: to change the very systems that perpetuate problems children and youth face and bring them to an end for good.
