Activ Spaces announces that Indigo Trust has awarded them a grant of £10,008.96 to continue their efforts in facilitating technology penetration in Cameroon. This Trust has also made other awards in Africa.
Based on the proposal sent to Indigo, we’re pleased to announce that ActivSpaces has received a one-time grant award of £10,008.96. How will these funds be used? Our self-financed, entrepreneurial model is part of our DNA, so we’ll continue to run our operations this way. The majority of these funds will go to hire a full-time Community Manager. This role has been filled by the part-time contributions of our co-founders from the start, with varying degrees of success. Having a dedicated resource to push our vision forward will be an incredible boost for us.
The Indigo Trust is a grant making foundation that funds technology-driven projects to bring about social change, largely in African countries. The Trust focuses mainly on innovation, transparency and citizen empowerment. The Indigo Trust makes grants to African projects or programmes, or to organisations who operate at least partly in African countries. We believe that access to information for all empowers people to change their own lives and communities.
