East Africa Leadership Program2018-07-20T10:33:05+00:00

Program Overview

Our East Africa community is led by a team of local change-makers, both in Kenya and Uganda, who are Pollination Project grantees themselves.

Their collective goal is to reach geographically and technologically marginalized grant applicants (with no internet access, no computer skills and limited English). They look for projects that do not have access to funding from other international foundations or who would not traditionally receive funding such as the young change makers in East Africa. The team establishes culturally-relevant processes and procedures that lead to more long term and overall impact.
