Click DONATE to help us reach our goal and set up new Innovation Labs for Global Minimum (GMin)!
How do you enable people to lead their societies to a place where development and innovation are part of an intrinsic cultural fabric? How can you transform individuals from the passive users of technological advancements to active makers of solutions that will impact their nation?
We believe the answer lies in the youth and in instilling in them a passion for ingenuity and diligence required for innovation. This is exactly what GMin has done and is continuing to do. In its first year of InChallenges, GMin was about the Now and Future of Sierra Leone.
Now the wildfire has caught and InChallenges has spread from Sierra Leone (Innovate Salone) to Kenya (Innovate Kenya) and Cape Town, South Africa (Innovate the Cape). Our hope is to to challenge youth to design solutions to complex problems in their local and national communities, to be the leaders and game-changers that their countries need them to be now.
What InChallenges has demonstrated is that the youth are anxious for more ways to be at the forefront of the development of their country.
Because of your support thus far:
- We have raised over $80,000 in funding,
- We have been awarded Rockefeller Foundation's “Next Century Innovators Award”,
- We have expanded InChallenges to two new countries, namely Kenya and South Africa, and
- We continue to inspire millions globally. One of the InChallenge finalists was a speaker at TEDxTeen in 2013.
But we do not want to stop here. We need you to help GMin to empower more youth and support even more innovative solutions. Our new program, the "InLabs", will provide students with a physical space, tools, curriculum and leadership to support their creativity and invention.
Thank you for your support!
