New Program for Young Social Entrepreneurs in Anglophone Africa

Posted by Gamuchirai on November 13, 2013 at 12:40 AM

Deadline :13 December 2013

Social Entrepreneurs Transforming Africa (SET Africa) was launched in November 2013 to provide young social innovators across Anglophone Africa with the organizational leadership skills, mentoring, networks, and funding opportunities needed to strengthen and scale up their social ventures. SET Africa is being implemented by Makerere University Business School (MUBS) in collaboration with the International Youth Foundation (IYF), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and The MasterCard Foundation.

Twenty-five young leaders annually will be selected to participate in SET Africa’s yearlong Fellowship experience. The program is open to young social entrepreneurs, ages 18 to 29, who have founded or co-founded a venture that addresses a social challenge in their communities. These fellows will also join IYF’s global YouthActionNet® community of nearly 900 young social innovators being supported by 16 national and regional institutes that includes SET Africa. The SET Africa program is managed through a collaborative effort by the Entrepreneurship Centre, Leadership Centre, and ICT Centre at MUBS, and is based in Kampala, Uganda.
