Aspiring to become a social entrepreneur and to make an impact on your society?
The Goblis Foundation has launched its Jikimu Social Entrepreneurship Program to train young people from the age of 18 through the age of 35 years old and empower young community social enterprises by creating a perfect balance between the social mission and entrepreneurship, to create employment opportunities to the underprivileged communities and protecting their environmental ecosystems.
They run regular training forums and this enables them to identify potential social innovators to attend physical trainings.
They then conduct a multi-step competition designed to inspire social entrepreneurs to propose impactful social enterprises addressing pressing issues in their communities.

All they ask for is passion, commitment, dedication, and hard work to learn, grow, explore and innovate.
And most importantly, if you have an exceptional social innovation idea; an idea that can help improve your quality of life, that of your family and most importantly, that of your community.
Every month, they select twenty-eight (28) finalists, half mem and half women, with the best proposals and most compelling personal leadership characteristics to attend a three-week Boot Camp experience at their Bomani Innovation Hub.
The Boot Camp training includes a full ecosystem of support for aspiring young social entrepreneurs – including seed funding, mentorship, resources, and access to a community of like-minded peers. All the social entrepreneurs become Innovation Hub fellows.
