Spotlight on Impact


COSY Project

Creating Opportunity for South Africa’s Youth (COSY) aims to enable young people,
particularly young women, in rural and semi-rural areas to be more active agents in achieving sustainable growth in South Africa by building their capacity to become entrepreneurs and by increasing their employability.


Change Maker Schools

In the last two years, we’ve learnt that it is important to offer schools strategic engagement opportunities to amplify their innovations, towards demonstrating the learners’ practical changemaking-in-action skills to the ecosystem.┬áThere is a need for partnerships that will help to showcase the value of these skills to the ecosystem at large, enabling rapid mind-set shift around the goals of education.┬áThe partnership between LifeCo UnLtd and Ashoka is designed to engage the school teams, and the learners within the schools, and demonstrate the possibilities for young people in South Africa today.


Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS)

The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is a seven-day programme of the Social Entrepreneurship Akademie organized in cooperation with six leading university-based entrepreneurship centers in Munich, Shanghai, Mexico City and Cape Town. GESS works on the UN Sustainable Development Goals aiming to empower students to become young responsible leaders who create positive change in our society.
