THE FINALISTS FOR THE 2013 FT/CITI INGENUITY AWARD

AFRICA & MIDDLE EAST

Bicycling Empowerment Network

The Bicycle Empowerment Network, initiated in response to demand for affordable bicycles and maintenance services, has created small business opportunities in urban areas of Namibia, while also helping to finance community services.

Each Enterprise Box set up by the Network is run by entrepreneurs newly trained in technical and business skills who sell refurbished bicycles, spare parts and repair services. Revenue is used for working capital as well as development of new business opportunities, ranging from solar energy products and electric grain milling to office services, computer training and internet access.

A network of 30 Enterprise Boxes has created over 100 full-time jobs, and in 2012 distributed nearly 6,000 affordable bicycles to disadvantaged communities. Profits from two projects in Windhoek support employment training for women and a centre that runs a kindergarten and after-school program.

LEAP Africa

The Leadership, Ethics and Civics program, launched by Leap Africa in 2008, equips public secondary school students in Nigeria with the life and leadership skills they require to serve as agents of social change, implementing a range of projects focused on improving lives in their local communities.
