Nairobi Stew

The recipe here is very simple; a plateful of community microfunding  mixed with a healthy portion of home-grown ingenuity. Let it stew for three hours and you get one of the most innovative micro-granting opportunities available in Nairobi. For a suggested donation of Ksh 500, attendees receive a bowl of stew and a vote, and hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more. Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, ballots are counted and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project. Winners will then come back to a future Stew dinner to report their project’s progress.

The next Nairobi Stew will be held on 22nd November 2017. Read more and RSVP here. Would you like to apply to pitch? Read more and submit your application here.
