Sustainable development of gender & health CBOs/NGOs in East Africa: way forward?

The May 30-31st event featured great sessions led by inspiring speakers and organizations. We enjoyed ourselves, exchanged knowledge, built connections, and, of course, had a lot of fun getting together with like-minded people. As Lightup Impact, we pass our gratitude to all who were able to join us online and at Chak Conference Center in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Lightup Impact was on tour in East Africa from March- June  2022, visiting the top seven shortlisted applicants from the Lightup Impact Badge program. The tour aimed at initiating collaborative research and impactful projects between Lightup Impact and the member organizations with donations that are jointly raised during the crowdfunding campaign.

Our mission

The mission of Lightup Impact is to help underrepresented voices and fight inequalities in health and gender in East Africa. We believe that entrepreneurial skills development, cooperation across sectors and exposure to the right networking opportunities is what will help these young organizations increase their visibility and impact.

Our vision

Only by exposing early stage social organizations to the right networking opportunities and know-how we can empower them to become sustainable and accelerate growth. In turn, their actions will have a greater positive impact on their beneficiaries – women and girls. 

Our values

Empathic leadership: we listen and we care about each other and our beneficiaries

Passion for social impact: we take our cause truly at heart

Courage and can do attitude: we are not scared to take risky choices 

Collaboration over competition: we truly believe together we can do much more than alone

It is a community of like-minded individuals where we can speak the same language, get and offer support as well as have an effective sounding board.
