About the Innovation for Change (I4C) Africa Hub

Launched in 2017 and based in Nairobi, the Innovation for Change (I4C) Africa Hub is a vital new physical and online space for regional ideas and social innovations, powered by our dynamic, growing community of civic space advocates from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), technologists and cross-sectoral partners. 

Innovation for Change (I4C) is a global network of people and organisations who want to connect, partner and learn together to defend and strengthen civic space and overcome restrictions to our basic freedoms of assembly, association and speech. We are a community-led network inspired by ideas, methods, and technologies from across different sectors. We work together with other organisations on advocacy, research, network building, education and training, fundraising, digital literacy and technology development. Our seven (7) connected regional hubs are growing in both physical and online spaces across Africa, Central Asia, East Asia, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), and the Pacific. 

Here, people exchange ideas and share their successes, challenges and opportunities in incubating social change and building sustainable solutions.

The I4C Africa Hub is working to strengthen the capacity of civil society and through home-grown African solutions as well as being part of a global network that offers network members access to the latest thinking, resources and collaboration.
