Lightup Impact Founder Tour Fundraiser

Support seven gender organizations

in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda

The Lightup Impact Community supports gender and development organizations in East Africa, amplifying the underrepresented voices of early stage social entrepreneurs. The seven organizations selected to participate in our Founder tour 2022 and Fundraiser are based across Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, but they all share the same mission: fight inequalities in gender and health in Eastern Africa.

What is the goal of the Founder Tour Fundraiser?

All of the donations of the fundraiser will go directly to the seven shortlisted organizations which we will visit during the Founder Tour in spring 2022. The goal of the tour is get to know the seven social entrepreneurs in their everyday community life and give visibility to the impact of their projects. We will report the direct positive impact of your donations on the lives of women and children in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. Work together with us and support our goal of improving the lives of children, girls and women in East Africa. Let’s all Lightup their impact together!

If you are able to contribute financially, we would love to count on your donation so we can achieve our 4000-euro target. As we value collaboration over competition, the amount raised will be equally divided among the seven social entrepreneurs participating in this fundraiser.
So with one donation you are actually supporting seven different causes!

Please note! If you experience issues donating by Mastercard on gofundme, either try a different card (VISA) or donate via paypal.
