Systems Change Through Collaboration: Making More Health

In an era where collaboration fuels innovation and impact, Lightup Impact proudly unveils a transformative collaboration with Making More Health (MMH). This alliance signifies a collective commitment to crafting a healthier world through systems change where individuals, communities, and even animals can thrive. Shared value for a healthier world MMH is dedicated to holistic sustainable development. They’ve championed a unique approach through the System Changer Network (SCN) Kenya, a coalition of eight local NGOs working in unison, sharing skills and catalyzing change. This network embodies MMH’s core values and aligns with the global movement, “Shift the Power”, making them ideal partners with Lightup Impact as sponsors of our annual conference,  Lightup Impact Days 2023.   We are thrilled to announce that four outstanding NGOs from SCN Kenya will share their accomplishments in a panel discussion at the event titled: “System Changer Network: How Local NGOs Create Change Together.”   These remarkable organizations include:    Tendo Social Development Group Positive Exposure – Kenya Wa Wa Kenya Mukuru Angaza Film Academy   To delve deeper into the incredible work and stories of these NGOs, explore their blog posts. Unveiling the collaborative force: SCN Kenya and Making More Health At Lightup Impact Days 2023, the spirit of empowerment will take center stage. On 11 September (Day 1 of the conference), panelists from SCN Kenya will discuss the platform their network provides for like-minded and well-matched local NGOs working with different communities and specializations to exchange knowledge and collaborate to develop solutions that go beyond the scope of an individual NGO. SCN Kenya is a unique resource that NGOs can leverage to foster innovative solutions, find strategic partners, and increase their collective knowledge.    Join panelists Cavin Odera (Wa-Wa Kenya), Sam Agutu (Tendo Social Development Group), Francis Gikfufu (Mukuru Angaza Film Academy),  and Jane Waithera (Positive Exposure Kenya), and moderator Mercy Kimalat (CEO of Assek) to discover more about the unique approach of SCN Kenya and how you can apply it to empower your own organization to drive positive change.
