Many thanks to all those that have applied for the social innovators fellowship program 2013. The applications closed on June 30th. We received 48 high quality applications that show how young Zimbabweans are beginning to come up with innovative solutions to the socio-cultural, economic and political challenges faced in the country. The community challenges and solutions ranged from health, culture, politics, environment, technology and education.This gives us a lot of optimism and we believe the social enterprise filed in slowly growing in Zimbabwe.
The next two weeks are going to be very hectic for us as we will be shortlisting the first 20 applications. These will be asked to attend a one day selection day where the final felows will be selected. At least 10 fellows will be slected for the fellowship program and will receive the necessary support, training, mentorship and resources to bring their ideas to fruition. Together we can build a better Zimbabwe!
