2024-03-14 AwA Banner (1)

The first part of the Action With Africa Challenge 2024 has come to an end and we are thrilled to release some hard facts:

🌍 With 137 approved project entries, including 54 early-stage and 83 advanced projects, the enthusiasm and innovation from Enactus teams around the world are truly inspiring.

🚀This year, participating teams can win over €50,000 in project and travel funding.

💼 We are grateful that more than 140 international judges contributed with their expertise to this challenge. The excitement is building as we prepare to announce the TOP 12 projects at Enactus Germany’s National Cup on 14 June!

TOP 12 Announcement Livestream on YouTube

⚠️ This Friday, 14 June, we will be announcing the TOP 12 as well as the TOP 3 early-stage projects. Our program partners from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), BASF and Wilo-Foundation will join us on stage to make the announcement and we will also present news about another partner award opportunity! The TOP 12 announcement will be live-streamed on YouTube from 10:45 – 11:15 AM GMT. If you cannot make it at that time, you will be able to watch a recording of the session later using the same link.

Next Steps

➡️ The TOP 3 early-stage projects will each win EUR 500 in project funding. While the TOP 7-12 ranking is also final and project teams receive EUR 1,000 in project funding, the TOP 6 will be invited to join us at Enactus World Cup 2024 in Astana, Kazakhstan, and compete for EUR 10,000 in project funding at the Action With Africa Challenge Final on Tuesday, 1 October. Only two days later, on 3 October, the TOP 6 ranking will be announced during the Action With Africa Awards Ceremony. All winning teams still need to pass an audit carried out by an external party verifying their 1st Progress Report data. The audits will take place between July and September 2024. Additionally, all winning projects still need to submit a 2nd Progress Report by 31 October 2024 at 10 AM GMT.
