IGNITE Youth Organisation is a non-profit organisation and thus we depend upon the generous gifts and donations from organisations, companies, churches and individuals to continue the work we are doing with young people. We accept both monetary and in-kind gifts and donations. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your gift and donation, and the Program you want to support.
For cash donations, once you send us an email with the details of the amount you would like to donate, we will send you our bank details. We are currently still working on our online payment system for donations.
For in-kind gifts, we can always use:
- good quality used clothes for babies/children/teenagers/young adults (male and female)
- items of sports equipment (deflated footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats, football shirts)
- toiletries for young women (soap, deodorant, body lotion, sanitary towels, toothbrushes)
- items of office stationary (paper, pens, exercise books/notebooks, staplers, computers, chairs, desks)
- items of band equipment (mics, cables, speakers, music instruments)
Thank you very much! We look forward to receiving your email! Your gift and donation will go a long way in helping us reach more youth, and impact more communities and societies.
The IGNITE Youth Innovation Competition is part of IGNITE's Influencers Program. In this battle of the ventures, high school students identify opportunities for innovation, share with peers and industry experts about the value they are capable of adding, and ask for the resources they need to move forward. Winners will receive thousands of dollars of seed money and the IGNITE Youth Innovation trophy in their school for one year. Internationally, we will be using the curriculum developed by the Babson ACTIVATE Program. Locally we will use the Youth & Work readiness toolkit prepared by EQUIP Zimbabwe Organisation.
The first edition of the IGNITE Youth Innovation Competition will be launched in high schools and community schools located in high-density and low-income suburbs in Harare such as Zengeza, Kuwadzana and Glen View; just to mention a few. This is mainly because we believe that children from these schools are underserved and underprivileged and need more access to opportunities that can increase their chances of success in life. This kind of competition really shines a light on the knowledge and skills that our students have to solve real-life problems. This competition is an invaluable opportunity for students to collaborate with each other, dream big and see that their brain power and ideas have the potential for impact in the wider world.
