The Reach for Change selection criteria for Tigo Digital Changemakers 2015

We are looking for early stage, social entrepreneurs with powerful ideas for children that use digital solutions.

The idea we are looking for must:

  • Be innovative, creative, and fresh.
  • Be early-stage or ready to grow.
  • Be something doable, clear and focused.
  • Have potential for great social impact, being able to improve the lives of children (up to 18 years).
  • Have potential to be system changing. By system changing, we mean ideas that can create long-lasting change for many children by changing the system which is either causing the problem, or restricting or limiting its solution. System change takes time, but is the ultimate goal of all the ideas which we bring into our incubator
  • Be scalable. Ideas which have the potential to improve the lives of tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions of children.
  • Have a sustainable financing plan. You should be able to explain to us how you intend to generate revenue to finance the delivery of your idea in a way that minimises the risk of the social impact stopping due to running out of money.

The idea must use digital solutions. The use of digital solutions can be demonstrated in one or more of the following ways:

  • Use mobile, broadband, digital and/or information technology as part of the solution
  • Have the potential to use mobile, broadband, digital and/or information technology to improve the quality of the impact or scale the social impact
  • Promote connectivity and access to communications, particularly to underserved populations or has the potential of doing so
  • Note: the use of digital can be developed during the application process. Keep an eye out for information regarding events where you can get support on how to use digital - here or on our Facebook page.

By early stage, we mean individuals whose ideas have not yet reached their full potential. This can be:

  • Individuals with a brand new idea
  • Individuals who have built an organisation that is still not fully developed because of the individual not having been able to focus fully on the idea/organisation
  • Individuals who have built an organisation that has run for some time, but who need support to scale the organisation, change the direction of the operations or take on a new and bigger challenge

The person we are looking for, the social entrepreneur, must have:

  • Entrepreneurial skill, such as being result-driven, goal oriented, pragmatic, and flexible.
  • Leadership skills; being able to inspire others and get other people involved.
  • A strong passion for social change to transform the world for children and a burning desire to make a difference.
  • You must also be the leader of the organisation established to bring this idea into reality.
