Financial Times And Citi Name Finalists For 2013 FT/Citi Ingenuity Awards

To achieve its aim, LEAP trains secondary school teachers through a Train the Trainers Program that enables them to deliver the curriculum to Senior Secondary Class 1 students over a one-year period.

With the support of the International Youth Foundation and Nokia and in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the program has reached over 14,000 students in five states. By the end of the 2011-2012 school year, students had implemented 499 social change projects, ranging from improved street lighting to medical testing, positively affecting over 60,000 people.

Sanergy

Sanergy provides sustainable, hygienic sanitation in Nairobi’s slums through an innovative toilet franchise system that generates additional income by recycling human waste to create electricity as well as organic fertiliser for farmers.

The initiative involves establishing networks of small-scale high-quality water-free toilets, manufactured using local materials and operated in the slums on a pay-per-use basis by resident micro-entrepreneurs.

Waste is safely collected into sealed 30-liter airtight containers and transported every day to a central processing facility. Sanergy converts the waste into safe and reusable by-products, including organic fertiliser sold to farms and electricity sold to the grid. The program creates jobs and business opportunities, while tackling serious environmental, social, and economic challenges.

Shack/Slum Dwellers International Alliance (Cape Town)

The Shack/Slum Dwellers International Alliance has established a programme that enables impoverished communities in Cape Town and Johannesburg to proactively upgrade their informal shack or slum housing and reconfigure the layout of their settlements.

The project aims to facilitate access to roads, provision of water, sanitation, waste removal and electricity, while encouraging the creation of public open spaces through utilisation of previously unexploited areas. The social cohesion and unity that is needed to implement such transformations builds and strengthens communities and creates a platform and voice for the urban poor.
