The 2017 Awards were held in November/December 2017.
We receive 162 applications – more than double the previous year.
The best 40 were offered a slot in our incubation for the next year and 10 ventures were shortlisted to present at a pitching event held on 5th December – International Volunteering Day.
The event was held at Kafeero Foundation and was opened by Cooper Mykers, Program Officer of UN Volunteers. A video was live streamed over facebook.
The winners were Kitabu Buk Project (Best Female) and Innovex (Best Male).
Earlier in the year, we partnered with Young Achievers Awards on their Social Entrepreneurship Category, with the winner being Action For Fundamental Change And Development (AFFCAD).
