Change for 100 Challenge: A Social Enterprise Competition

Posted February 8, 2011 from Nigeria

Hello, Friends!

This is both an opportunity and a request for your partnership. I have shared on WorldPulse my desire to give young people the tools to change their communities . . . With your support and encouragement, we are marching on with this vision. Hope Youth Foundation (an organisation I co-founded) is partnering with The F.A.I.T.H. Initiative to challenge Nigeria's youth to change their communities for one hundred dollars, through social enterprise! (Please see details below and click on the link for the competition blog page.)

The Need I would like to invite you to participate in this revolutionary event by contributing your time, talent, or resources. We are seeking donations of the following:

Books and materials relating social enterprise, youth empowerment, and leadership to award as prizes to winners and runners-up.

E-mentors to offer advice and support to young entrepreneurs who emerge from this competition as they seek to implement their business plan and effect change in their communities.

Funds to facilitate the $100 grant that will be awarded to each of the five Grand Prize winners

If you are interested in coming alongside us, you may contact me through WorldPulse or send an e-mail to

Competition Could you change your community for ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS?

Hope Youth Foundation and The F.A.I.T.H. Initiative believe so strongly in social enterprise as a tool for change that we are willing to invest in one hundred dollars in YOUR business idea.
