Giving Garage is set to hold its second edition of the orphans support programme themed; “The Green Reception; Lets Encourage Celebrations at Charity Homes”, scheduled to hold on Sunday January 31, 2016, at the Heart of Gold, Surulere, Lagos.
Giving Garage is an ambitious initiative that seeks to engage, train and assist young social entrepreneurs in Africa by improving the way societal problems are addressed.
Our research reveals that most social entrepreneurs do not have a solution space for the purpose of networking, idea development, and productive collaboration.
The initiative is a platform that provides support for social innovators. The support comes in various forms e.g. networking, self-development, workshops, crowd funding and so on.
So the platform is like a ‘garage’ it would also create the requisite awareness that will encourage and promote social good.
At Giving Garage, we understand that a certain kind of environment is needed to nurture idea and develop sustainably.
Therefore, our core objective is to create a virtual space that will provide support system for social innovations to thrive in Africa.
The ‘GIVING GARAGE ORPHANAGE OUTREACH 2.0 will feature ‘CHASTE CHARITY AT 31’, to celebrate the innovator’s birthday as well as 3K4Orphans which arises from the dire need to assist Orphans.
The idea is that if three hundred (300) people donate three thousand naira (N3000) each, 3K4Orphans will successfully raise nine hundred thousand naira (N900,000) for Orphans.
The funds will go towards the Heart of Gold Hospices (Orphanage) to start an entrepreneurial venture that would help sustain the home on a monthly basis.
