Lightup Impact Fundraiser & Networking Event

Let's empower locally-led non-profits in gender & health in East Africa to create a world of equality together!

Welcome to the Lightup Impact Fundraiser Event!

Aim of the event

Through this event, we aim to raise money and find partners to empower one early-stage grassroots organization in gender & health in East Africa to become sustainable. We will support and train for a whole year their key leadership, strategic, and advocacy skills. Therefore, they will be better prepared to run their organizations, scale their sustainable growth, and accelerate their social impact. If in five years time, we can empower all of our 90 members to become sustainable, we could impact the lives of over 27.000 vulnerable women, children, and youth to ensure gender, health, and education equality. This event is for individual donors, partners, investors, other social entrepreneurs and anyone in support of our cause!

What to expect

A fun and inspiring night with like-minded people!

 

We will offer finger food & refreshments and handmade Kenyan Maasai Crafts as donation rewards. 

 

Opportunity to meet our guest Austrian social entrepreneur and Ashoka Fellow Rebekka Dober, founder of YEP (Youth Empowerment Participation), and her team.
