KIT Innovation Challenge 2020

Stage 1 Submissions due 24 July 2020.

Each day, women and girls in the developing world experience immense injustice. Injustice that limits their agency and their capacity to flourish as individuals and thrive within their communities.

The KIT Impact Challenge is open to organisations that are driven by the desire to create meaningful change in the lives of women and girls. If your team has an initiative that positively impacts health, education or livelihood opportunities, then they would love to hear from you!


Their vision is a transformed world for women and girls; a world in which systems enable the empowerment of women and girls. We want to live in a world where women and girls are heard, where they have the power to participate, and the opportunity to lead. A world where existing models are challenged and entrepreneurship inspires sustainable change. They are seeking solutions that address the most pressing problems faced by women and girls. Solutions that are purpose-driven, innovative, scalable, sustainable, adaptable, future-ready, and environmentally aware!

  • promotion across their global forum
