Tigo in partnership with Swedish non-profit organization Reach for Change launched the ‘Tigo Reach for Change’ initiative, which focuses on identifying and supporting local social entrepreneurs with solid ideas on improving the lives of Tanzanian children.
The Reach for Change competition looks for the highest potential individuals with the highest potential ideas for tackling the challenges faced by children here in Tanzania. Interested candidates are invited to present their innovative ideas online by applying through the Tigo Tanzania website.
Each application will be reviewed by a panel of experts and the strongest and most promising applicant will be invited to join a three year incubator programme where their ideas will be transformed into sustainable ventures. In addition to this, they will receive funding of USD 25,000 a year for up to three years, as well as mentoring and professional advice from senior employees of Tigo.
For the duration of the 3 years programme the social entrepreneur’s business idea will undergo evaluation to ensure that they attain required key performance indicators until their project is fully developed and self-sustainable.
The deadline for first stage applications is midnight on November 29th. Potential applicants can visit www.tanzania.apply.reachforchange.org for further information and to apply.
