ACT Foundation Application for Changemakers Innovation Challenge 2024

ACT Foundation Application for Changemakers Innovation Challenge 2024 – As the world increasingly relies on digital solutions, ACT Foundation is committed to forging new pathways for addressing challenges in a manner that is not only innovative but also sustainable and impactful. Over the past six years, our unwavering support to diverse organisations has illuminated the profound importance of leveraging technology for social impact and fostering creative thinking among innovators.

In line with this, the theme of this year’s challenge will revolve around digital innovation that catalyses systematic chang by addressing social issues within our society and transforming traditional systems.

By promoting and supporting organisations Driving Change with Digital Innovation, we aim to foster solutions that go beyond immediate gains, leaving a lasting positive imprint on African communities. Through this year’s challenge, we will champion the organizations that are not only innovative but also practical and sustainable. Winning entries should have the potential to be implemented and scaled, creating a lasting impact for Africa.
