posted on Monday, October 20, 2008 06:46 PM
Oguntê, in partnership with UnLtd, The Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, is bringing about an initiative to support women, aspiring social leaders, with bold, fresh and ground-breaking ideas to help solve issues emerging in the communities of their choice.
The Oguntê - Make A Wave Award is a 'kickstart and thinking” scheme (worth up to £1000 in a combination of grant and training) made to women in the UK who can show that a very small amount of money, paired up with a resourceful brain, can be used to make a difference.
So, If you are an aspiring female social leader, if you haven't had the opportunity to shine yet and would like to pilot your project or your campaign, please apply!
We are looking for ideas that fit with the values of UnLtd’s mission to reach out and unleash the energies of people who can transform the world in which they live. UnLtd call these people social entrepreneurs.
Your ideas need to be aligned with Oguntê’s Women in Social Leadership vision: inspiration, entrepreneurship, networking, confidence.
