Celebrating Change! LEAP Africa’s Social Innovators Programme & Awards 2015 supported by Union Bank



On Thursday, November 12, LEAP (Leadership, Effectiveness, Accountability and Professionalism) Africa, a leading non-profit organisation in Nigeria, held its Social Innovators Programme and Awards (SIPA) event, themed Rage for Change: Creating Impact.

The event celebrated young social innovators, who have crafted solutions that improve the quality of life in rural communities and urban cities in Nigeria, in health, agriculture, environment, ICT and other sectors.

In collaboration with the International Youth Foundation, Union Bank, and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China the Social Innovators Programme pledged to provide capacity building and networking opportunities to 20 young social entrepreneurs out of the 455 who applied, through a one year fellowship.

Here are some photos from the event:
