SOCIAL INNOVATION ACADEMY (SINA)

DURATION | 5 Months

Overview

Marginalized youth and refugees lack opportunities to create a dignified life and are expected to remain in poverty. Social Innovation Academies in East Africa are transforming the educational system and allowing marginalized communities to create their own solutions and social enterprises tackling root causes of social problems.

SINA was born in 2014 after of six years of educational sponsorships for Ugandan orphans, who could not find meaningful employment or go to university after completing high school. SINA unleashes the untapped potentials of marginalized young people and refugees to turn their challenges into opportunities through the development of social enterprises. A five-step empowerment process supports “scholars” to develop personal and professional skills to create their own enterprises.

SINA has been able to create mindset changes and unleash the potential of youth. Over 30 social enterprises have been born at SINA and have impacted close to 1 million lives with their products and services. SINA Scholars have also won numerous international awards.
