Co-Creation Hub is now accepting entries to its 2018 Giving4Good Challenge. The Giving4Good Challenge is open to social innovators, and teams or individuals with early stage ideas who are of Nigerian citizenship living in Nigeria. Receive up to £35,000 towards the execution of the idea. 

Co-Creation Hub Giving4Good Challenge

CcHUB is running the Giving4Good challenge which will explore the ways CSO’s and NGO’s use technology to raise funds from individuals and donor organisations 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.

CcHUB Giving4Good Challenge Eligibility.

  • We invite innovative, technology driven solutions targeted at the constraints that CSO’s and NGO’s face when it comes to attracting individual philanthropy. Ideas should be focused on 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?
  • We invite proposals from software developers, academics and entrepreneurs from across the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
  • Through the challenge, we hope to find social innovators across Nigeria, supporting them to develop their ideas and to scale leveraging digital technology.

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.
