Lightup Impact events are hubs of inspiration, empowerment, and action, driven by youth-led initiatives and grassroots movements. At Lightup Impact, we celebrate youth empowerment, activism, and sustainable community development. Our events are not just gatherings; they are catalysts for change, fostering intergenerational equity, gender equality, and community-led sustainable development.
Our community meetups are private gatherings for Lightup Impact members, where local voices echo global aspirations. Grassroots organizations, youth leaders, and community-based activists converge in this setting to amplify their impact and forge pathways toward a sustainable future.

We delve deep into the realms of sustainable development, social entrepreneurship, and grassroots innovations for transformative change.
In our fundraising events, we unite for a common cause – supporting grassroots organizations and community-based initiatives. Every donation echoes our commitment to sustainable change, ensuring that the spirit of giving back thrives within our community.
