SDGs and COVID-19 Meetup Grants
In alignment with AfriLabs’ and Agence Française de Développement (AFD) mandate to support and accelerate development in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda 2030, each of the 12 Hubs Learning Weeks under the AfriLabs Capacity Building Programme (ACBP) will feature webinars focused on stakeholder management and ecosystem community engagement; which will cover strategies on building successful startup communities, holding meetups focused on thematic and development issues and managing multiple stakeholder groups.
After these specific webinars, applications for submission of meetup ideas tailored to implementing the lessons learned from the webinars will be accepted and successful hubs will be awarded 2,000 euros each to execute the SDG Meetups in their respective cities. During the course of the ACBP, the top 36 submissions (one per city) across the 12 Learning Weeks will be granted 2,000 euros each to execute the SDG Meetups.
