We'd like to extend a special thank you to the contributors who posted these eight ideas, but also to all those that participated and collaborated throughout the Challenge. We are in awe of all the impactful work happening across Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda to unleash the power of youth. The Challenge has finished, but as a community we can ensure the momentum continues.
