More than ten research management structures have been strengthened as a result of research management workshops held at scientific institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The impact from the workshops includes: strengthened academic curriculum benefiting from progress markers, stakeholder committees, laboratory management, laboratories with a sustainable economy, coordination with equipment suppliers, laboratory auditing, and strengthened access to scientific literature.
We have enabled more than fifty innovations, including: new products, new services, new production methods, new sustainable economy models and new modes of enterprising.
The innovations address sanitary pads, education, former child soldiers, radio call-in to raise awareness, business management, preventing early pregnancies, preventing child abuse, establishing rural health clinics, homework support, drinking water, ghetto-dwellers and more.
We have enabled more than five hundred enterprises to start or scale-up. Many have started in vulnerable settlements, generating an income to people who were previously without it.
We offer coaching and start-up loans. The products and services are: electricity through solar panels, milling, health services, teaching, tailoring, child-care, sanitary pads, medicine, value-added crop, clothes, food, drinks, drinking water and more.
