Reach for Change 2014

Share your big idea. Get funded. Make a difference

Are you a social entrepreneur who is working to improve the lives of children and society in a big way? Are you using digital tools and technology* to scale and grow your impact? Do you have a strong desire to promote children's rights, an innovative idea to change the world for children, and the passion and the drive to create this change? Let's make it happen together!

The Tigo digital Changemakers Competition awards 2 winners a prize of Rwf. 13.800.000 each and a place in a support program which includes professional coaching, and mentoring from Tigo and our non-profit partner Reach for Change to help them develop their initiatives. We actively encourage social entrepreneurs with different kinds of programs to apply. Entrepreneurs who do not have digital at the core of their operation can apply, as long as there is the potential for digital technology to be used in some way to increase the impact of their work.

*For us technology means using mobile, broadband, digital or other technology as part of your solution or to grow the social impact.

The idea must use digital solutions. The use of digital technological solutions can be demonstrated in one or more of the following ways:

  • Utilizing mobile, broadband, digital and/or information technology, as part of the solution
  • Have the potential to use mobile broadband, digital and/or information technology to improve the quality of the impact or scale of the social impact
  • Promote connectivity and access to communications, particurlary to underserved populations or has the potential of doing so.

Get the organizational funding and coaching you need from our Incubator program, and see your idea or initiative transform lives through the guidance and assistance of Tigo advisors and experts from a Global network.

Get the support you need to bring your idea to life and start making a change in the lives of the children who need it the most in Rwanda.
