A Million Minds
A Million Minds is a think tank that helps with ideas in different ways, enabling positive change in the million programs areas.
”Earlier this fall the Foundation Reach for Change came out of the country to look for people with cutting-edge ideas about how life can be better for children. In parallel, the hunt also continued in several other countries around the world – Chad, Ghana , Kazakhstan, Rwanda and Tanzania.
These will wage funding for up to three years, access to an incubator program and support from some of the industry’s brightest minds in the Kinnevik Group. That way, they put all their effort and time on developing their idea so that it can reach and help as many children as possible. The persons selected will be part of a global network of child rights heroes like Reach for Change supports .”
Reach for Change, THANK YOU for this year – I´ll see you next year! I am so thankful for this opportunity and to make it to the top 32 really gave me some creds and confirmation that I´m on the right track with my idea. Next time we´ll see eachother it won´t just be an idea in my head and heart, let´s get to work and make this to REALITY!!!
