The story behind Lightup Impact
We are an online community of 100 early-stage locally led non-profits, also known as grassroots organizations, in gender & health in East Africa.
We support our member organizations with networking, trust-based partnerships and skills development to increase their visibility and long-term sustainability.
The Challange We Face
Grassroots organizations are locally-led non-profit organizations who tackle the roots of societal problems in the communities they originate from (Patel 2019). Lack of integration into national and regional development policies, lack of support networks, and lack of visibility and credibility to secure funding are among the main impediments to their growth especially during their startup stage (NCBOC 2022).
Our unique Approach
At Lightup Impact we generate evidence-based solutions to increase the impact, and sustainable development of our grassroots members in gender & health in East Africa. We empower our members to become sustainable through peer-to-peer support, networking, trust-based partnerships, and capacity building. As we believe in a bottom-up approach to development, we co-create and co-implement solutions together with our founders.
Our Impact in Numbers
Central to our network are the partnerships we have already created and that we will create. We aim to partner with corporates, universities, accelerators, like-minded experts, and experienced social enterprises from different fields.
