Social Venture Challenge: Helping Young People Bring Their Ideas to Life

Scholars are Creating Positive Change in their Communities through Social Ventures

Africa’s young leaders are brimming with ideas, energy, and a desire to have a positive impact on their communities. But few have the tools, resources, and access to the mentorship they need to successfully launch social venture projects in their communities.

The Social Venture Challenge provides a pathway to action for socially responsible young leaders who want to create change in their communities. The Foundation, in partnership with The Resolution Project, offers Resolution Fellowships to Mastercard Foundation Scholars.

The Fellowship includes seed funding, mentorship, and the opportunity for Scholars to pursue their aspirations. With the Fellowship, Scholars are addressing challenges in their communities related to food security, access to sanitation, and young women’s access to reproductive health education.
