Supporting 100 Women in Agribusiness in Africa.

http://www.guzakuza.org 


Having realised that young women in Agribusiness find it difficult to scale due to factors like inadequate technical know-how, market access limitation and a lack of mentorship, we started Ignite, an Agri-business accelerator model for African young women in Agribusiness. Since 2016, ignite has been heavily subsidised unto 90% by our corporate and individual sponsors.

However, the story seems to be different this year. The sudden outbreak of the CoronaVirus Pandemic has hit most of our sponsors badly. As such they are unable to fund this year’s Ignite programme.
We are raising GBP 9,000 in the next three months to support one hundred (100) young women Agribusiness founders (our target group) who are being faced with financial and personal challenges due to the pandemic and are seeking for tools and resources to help them deal with the uncertainty.

We want to make this whole experience easier and make Ignite 2020 free for every woman in Agribusiness who needs it.
This will enable many young women in agribusiness on the African continent to build their own capacities, receive toolkits, relevant resources and a community of like-minded peers. In effect, they will be able to build disruptive agribusinesses that can withstand uncertainties and in effect be able to produce food for the world's population.

We have been able to raise funds and friends to support other activities of Ignite 2020 but still in need of support to cover activities such as :

1. Some aspects of our Online sessions
2. Residential sessions
3. Field Trips
4. Toolkits and resources
5. Internship 
6. Seed Capital for 3 best igniters 
7. Monitoring and evaluation 
8. Mentorship

Ignite 2020 will give hope while supporting 100 women in Africa to build game changing Agribusinesses.
