East Africa Impact Days
The East Africa Impact Days 2022 – 2023 is a series of four online events to engage and empower the social business community for 1 year. It is designed to bring together like-minded people and pioneers of change in an interdisciplinary way - for an open exchange and learning journey focusing on Zero Unemployment, Zero Poverty, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions and bringing out the best practices.
Inspired by these contemporary issues and the astonishing actions of the youth in the region, the social business organizations working around Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus and supported by the YY Foundation launched a program in 2020, “Create a brighter and Greener Future for East Africa Youth”, to tackle youth unemployment in the region through social business in an environmentally responsible way and to support social business from ideation to scale up.
The East Africa Impact Days are a moment in which the community bands together to present the impact of the program, showcase young green entrepreneurs' stories and initiatives that are creating a world of 3 Zeros with social business, and provide insightful and inspiring moments to learn about social business investment, growth, and acceleration.
