Our SINA in Zimbabwe is starting to take shape: the first building from upcycled plastic bottles in the Tongogara Refugee Camp is almost finished and will be the space for refugee youth to unleash their potentials and create solutions in the form of social enterprises. The SINA is locally registered and owned by the refugees themselves as "Transformation Innovation Hub - TIH".

We are extremely grateful for support by Avanti Communications who today installed a Broadband Satelite internet connection in our SINA Mpigi Community, which will support our scholars take part in online opportunities and boost their emerging social enterprises. Since unreliable internet has been one of our biggest pains and hindrances, this really means a lot. The connection to Avanti was fostered through the Global Business Coalition for Education and their REACT Platform, which we are grateful for.

Our Story

The Social Innovation Academy (SINA) elicits youth’ untapped potentials to drive lasting
change and pursue purpose in the world through social entrepreneurship. Its holistic
empowerment model lets scholars discover their calling in life and create a positive impact on the environment and the society. Youths are in charge of themselves, living in self-organized and freesponsible communities. Skills and experiences are gained through taking over responsibilities, leading the community through self-management. Scholars become
changemakers applying learning directly to turn challenges into solutions and leave with their own jobs established. Transcending their backgrounds as refugees, orphans, street children or other marginalized backgrounds, their own personal tragedies often become the driving force for the creation of social enterprises tackling the root causes of their own personal tragedies.
