We are thrilled to announce our involvement with the African Social Enterprise Fund
ASEF's goal is to support entrepreneurs in non-oil based industries with high growth potential in Africa to become socially minded entrepreneurs!
The ASEF aims to promote, empower and enable outstanding individuals in the creative industries to translate their ideas into successful, socially and environmentally-minded businesses that create opportunity for all.
What are they raising money for? This campaign seeks to generate support for ASEF’s “Fashion, Textile and Manufacturing” and “Music” Awards. The ASEF will support Award Winners by providing tailor-made leadership and social impact training in Nigeria, the UK and Italy in 2017.
Why should you care? Nigeria is one of the most populated countries in the world, with a population of over 184 million people. It is also Africa’s largest oil producer. Nigeria suffers from high levels of air pollution (the WHO named Onitsha in the Niger Delta as one of the two most polluted cities in the world in May 2016) as well as contaminated water and soil. The environmental impact of this is global. It affects us all.
