We learned from our research that key partnerships is what will allow the organizations to mobilize resources and create traction that is required to create impact.


We partner with selected organizations in our network who have earned the Impact Badge and facilitate their exposure with other stakeholders (donors, business sector, networks). With the Impact Badge, we certify that the grassroots members are registered and credible organizations that are committed to growing with the Lightup Impact community. 

Our Journey Through East Africa

In 2022, we journeyed through East Africa in what was called our Founder Tour 2022. From Kenya, through Uganda, and ending in Rwanda we set out to do collaborative research, partner with local organizations on different projects in their communities, deliver donations to these organizations, and collect research data on their needs and challenges.


We are pleased to report that the tour was a huge success, not only in achieving what we set out to do but also in generating new ideas and learning from our experiences. So, please join us as we take you on a virtual tour of this wonderful journey – sharing what we have learned and experienced in each of the inspiring communities we visited.


This is our way of integrating you into our ambition to support the grassroots organizations that drive sustainable social change in our communities.
