The goal of the Social Innovators Programme & Awards, (SIPA) by LEAP Africa is to create a platform to support and celebrate the diversity of social innovation in Nigeria. The 2018 SIPA brings together young social innovators across sectors in addition to industry leaders, policy shapers, players in the public and private sectors, academics and corporate individuals across the tri-sectoral divide to discuss and dissect social innovation.
The theme for SIPA 2018, ‘Equipping Youth for Social Transformation’ was borne out of the need to provide support and amplify the voices of young people pushing the boundaries of social transformation with their social enterprises despite structural and systemic odds. Some of the alumni of this prestigious fellowship include Olanrewaju Adeloye, Buba Imrana, Emma Owobu, Kelvin Okoli, Chioma Ukonu, Kunbi Adeoye, Adeniyi Oluokun, Seun Sangoleye, etc.
