Working together to bring the causes we deeply care about to life.

What does it mean to love your community? How do you care for those around you? What can you do to better the lives of others?

The Simple Change Big Impact Challenge is a CSR created to fund dozens of innovative ideas designed and executed by members of the general public. With the Simple Change Big Impact Challenge, we have invested directly in the social infrastructure of at least 20 communities nationwide and inspired more people to give back to the communities they are from.

The projects we back are as diverse as the communities we serve and as colorful as the people who pitch these projects to us. Some of the projects include providing sustainable sources of clean water to communities where drinking water was not available, providing shoes for children using recyclable materials, providing employment to disadvantaged members of the community, supporting pregnant women in IDP Camps and developing a USSD application that allows members of the community book hospital appointments.
