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.

Community Meetups

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.

Highlights from 2023

Lightup Impact Days 2023

Last year’s event gave rise to a new chapter for grassroots leaders rooted in empowerment.


Lightup Impact Days 2023, co-hosted with the East African Philanthropy Network (EAPN), gathered 154 delegates from across Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania.


It was a celebration of voices often unheard and a platform where dreams to create social change met reality.
