Your community. Your ideas to make it better. For the first time, the Google Impact Challenge is coming to Nigeria! The Challenge asks local innovators how they would make their community–and beyond–an even better place. The public and a panel of local Judges vote for the ideas with the most potential, and Google.org pairs each winner with a package of strategic support, funding and Google volunteers.

  • Organizations Apply

    Eligible nonprofits and social enterprises submit their proposals to create economic opportunity in Nigeria.

  • Finalists Selected

    Google and our partners will review applications and select 12 finalists.

  • Public Votes

    From the 12 finalists, the public will have three weeks to vote for their favorite idea.

  • Final Event and Winners Announced

    All 12 finalists are invited to pitch their ideas to our panel of Judges at a final event. The Judges will select three Challenge winners from these finalists, and also announce the people’s choice winner.

  • Training and Support

    Each of the four winners will receive a $250,000 grant and training from Google. The remaining 8 finalists will receive a $125,000 grant.

    Criteria:

    • Community Impact: Does the proposed project create economic opportunity in Nigeria? Does it improve the lives of people in our country?
    • Innovation: Does the project present unexpected solutions to unmet needs?
    • Reach: Does it have the potential to scale directly or to serve as a model for other communities? Will its scope grow over time?
