“I gained a deeper understanding of how to run an effective non-profit organization. The program exposed me to the various opportunities available in the third sector.
I gained more insight into current trends in the non-profit sector and how to utilize them in my organization. There is so much structure in my team and clarity of roles.
Chidi’s humility is also worthy to note. Always willing to provide honest and well-structured criticism. I recommend this to any development leader looking to make an impact.”

“This was amazing!. Becoming an inner circle member was the best decision my organization made. We gained direction and narrowed our vision to focus on the areas we are best at. CHIDI will keep being our mentor.
We officially became registered and gained immense clarity. She is indeed loaded, full of knowledge, lots of passion for the growth of non-profit organizations in Africa.
I have no regrets. The work continues until we achieve an inclusive African society for persons living with a disability”.

‘Incredible, knowledgeable, and impactful.

Before the program, we used the general content writing format for our work but as a result of the program, we focus our content writing now on storytelling format which has attracted more donors.

Now we get funds from donors through diverse kinds of storytelling platforms”

Nkem [Social Innovators Bootcamp]

Simply beyond amazing

We gained clarity on what exactly we are about, how to go about our goals and objectives, and who our target beneficiaries are.

I also launched the Nonprofit Impact Challenge (NIC) for nonprofit organizations to get continuous access to funding, partnerships, and collaboration opportunities.

Educative, Inspiring, and Empowering!

Before joining this boot camp, I was at a point where I was almost giving up because things were not going exactly how I envisage they will. I got clarity on how to structure my social enterprise. I got knowledge and insight on how to raise and attract funds to run my social enterprise.

This is one of the best boot camp I have attended on building social innovation. The thought that went into planning it, the richness of speakers and the commitment to it is really commendable

Bukola [Social Innovators Bootcamp]

Founder, Karis & Eleos Foundation.

I came into this program a novice and won a grant of $300,000 before the 12 weeks were over. I am thankful for this course and the light bulb moment from each session. Having a coach is very important and our coaches knew their onions and delivered with top-notch excellence. Participating in this program has given me the drive to seek more.
