About The Social Innovators Programme 2020
Over the past six (6) years, LEAP Africa has partnered with Union Bank Nigeria, other corporate sponsors, and development champions. The aim is to enable young change-makers to transition their social change ideas into scalable social enterprises.
And, through a careful selection process, 20 highly motivated and young Nigerian social innovators are always chosen across a pool of applicants, to participate in activities outlined for the fellowship year. In the same vein, this year, the fellowship will open up to receive applications from English speaking West African countries.
Generally, Fellows are usually empowered through a series of training sessions (physical and online); mentorship, access to local and international funding and partnership opportunities; and importantly the opportunity to be a part of a global network of social change agents. These activities culminate into an award ceremony where outstanding Fellows are rewarded with seed grants and showcased.
The initiatives of Fellows cover various aspects of society such as; Agriculture, Youth Empowerment, Education, Science & Technology, Health, Law, Human Rights, among others.
