One element of the South Africa Challenge is the projects. Each challenger is given the opportunity to take on a problem that they feel passionately about. They are then provided access to mentors and industry experts given the opportunity to develop the idea into reality. Here are a selection of some of our favorites.
In 2014, in partnership with the Durban Innovation Hub, Peter Bailey took on the ambitious plan to create a national Hackathon hosted in Durban as a part of the HackaGlobal initiative. Over the two weeks Peter and NK (Head Honcho at Durban Hub) brought together over 40 coders, hustlers and designers to create Durban's first full fledged Hackathon.
In 2011, our first year artist Elijah Benoit, also known as Chris Gordon,
collaborated with ZKL, from the world changers south africa to the single World View.
What to expect
The South Africa Challenge is not a charity aid expedition; it's a real life hands on, on the ground international enterprise and leadership challenge for high potential emerging leaders.
Participants are challenged to use and develop their capacity to develop and deliver projects and products that have the potential to strengthen and support the work of our local delivery partners and the communities they support.
What they learn and discover about themselves as they broaden their horizons is priceless; and is designed to make them #unstoppable when they return home.
What participants say
The SA Challenge is made possible through the support of a range of supporters and partners
