Do you have an innovative idea to increase the funds raised for good causes in Nigeria? If yes then this might the opportunity you have you have been waiting for.

Applications are currently open for the Co-Creation Hub’s (Cc Hub) Giving for Good Challenge (G4g).

The Giving4Good challenge is being organized by Cc Hub to explore the ways CSO’s and NGO’s  use technology to raise funds from individuals and donor organizations in both local and international/diaspora communities.

The constraints of individual philanthropy in Nigeria revolve around three major themes: Transparency & Accountability, Effective Communication , Ease of donating.

The Challenge aims to bring technologists and civil society groups together, to develop mobile-based innovative platforms that can help address the constraints of individual philanthropy in Nigeria.

Rules and Eligibility

Proposals will be accepted from software developers, academics and entrepreneurs from across the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria. Ideas must be innovative with technology driven solutions and must be focused to answer any one of the following questions:

  • How might we increase the transparency of NGO’s and CSO’s reporting, to gain trust and encourage more individual donations in Nigeria?
  • How might we effectively communicate the emotional appeal of causes supported by NGO’s and CSO’s, in order to trigger more individual philanthropy in Nigeria?
  • How might we leverage technology to facilitate the ease of donating to NGO’s and CSO’s in Nigeria?

The top 3 ideas will receive combined funding of up to £35,000 towards the execution of the idea. Further Pre-Incubation support will be provided via the Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB) Pre-Incubation services.

Over the subsequent six months, the top three ideas will be supported with a range of services focused on product development, distribution and business modelling to turn their ideas into fully working products to launch in late 2018.

Application closes 13th April 2018.
