Lightup Impact Badge Program

Twice a year we review the credibility, the impact, the vision and the commitment of our member organizations to grow with the Lightup Impact network through the Lightup Impact Badge Application. The founders who successfully pass this selection, earn the Impact Badge and a certificate. As Impact members of our community the founders are granted access to apply to our additional projects (e.g. calls for partnerships or trainings) or they can showcase the organization’s credibility and collaboration with the Lightup Impact Community to external partners. The next application round will be launched in June 2023.

We are excited to announce that 12 member organizations of the Lightup Impact community from Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda have earned the Impact Badge in January 2023. Congratulations! Have a look at their work below.
