Twenty entries have made it through the final stage of GTBank’s #SimpleChangeBigImpact Challenge, a community development challenge where members of the public pitch their ideas about an innovative project that can change their community.
Organized by Guaranty Trust Bank plc., as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, the #SimpleChangeBigImpact Challenge offered Nigerians on Social Media the opportunity to get up to N1 million funds for their proposed ideas with the potential to add real value to their communities. Within 2 weeks of a call for submissions, the Challenge received more than 400 entries from people in different communities in Nigeria. After preliminary assessments based on the relevance, unique impact and feasibility of the project ideas, the entries were trimmed down to 40 by a panel of judges made up of CSR experts and Social Innovators.
The final stage of the #SimpleChangeBigImpact Challenge was decided by members of the public who selected the top twenty entries by “liking” their favourite community development projects on GTBank’s Instagram account. The 20 winners, each representing different communities across Nigeria, will now receive up to N1 million in funding to execute their community development project.
Below is the list of the top 20 entries.
