The 2023 Speak Your Mind Challenge

Baobab Summit 2023

Every year at the Baobab Summit, Mastercard Foundation Scholars have a chance to enter the Speak Your Mind Challenge, where they share personal insights around the theme of the Baobab Summit. This year’s theme, “Here. Now. Using Our Voices, Shaping the World,” was co-created by the Scholars themselves. It celebrates the power of individual and collective action in making a positive impact. From spoken word to speeches, from dance to videos, each submission is poignant, compelling and deeply personal.

Here are this year’s winners of the Speak Your Mind Challenge and their incredible work.
