Igniting Innovation Summit 2015 SVC Winner Announcement

We are pleased to welcome our SVC winners from our annual conference with the Igniting Innovation Summit held at Harvard University:

SVC Winner: Michelle Mboya, Founder
Social Venture Name & Location: G.I.R.L., Kenya 
Michelle founded the Girl’s Initiative to Redefine Leadership (G.I.R.L.) to provide a safe space for impoverished girls in Kibera, Nairobi to tell their own stories and empower themselves through social responsibility. G.I.R.L. will develop an online platform that will feature sponsored “challenges” for the members to help their community and earn money for school fees. These empowerment opportunities will help make girls both socially and personally responsible while allowing them to engage with their communities and the rest of the world.
