Our Work in Sub-Saharan Africa
Since early 2018, Peace First has been funding innovative projects led by young people in Nigeria, with the program rapidly expanding across the continent. Today, our community of young social entrepreneurs is thriving, with particularly large hubs in Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Malawi.
Our training and direct grants have enabled these inspiring young leaders to launch impactful projects that address a wide range of community issues, from improving local infrastructure to implementing evidence-based sex education programs and creating out-of-school-time educational programs.
Our young African change leaders are connected, collaborating, and partnering on shared projects through the Impact Rooms and virtual and occasional in-person meetups. They benefit from the wisdom and resources of their peers in the Peace First community, creating a network of support that enables them to drive meaningful change in their communities and beyond.
