About the Challenge

Your community. Your ideas to make it better. For the first time, the Google Impact Challenge is coming to South Africa! 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.

How it Works

Organizations Apply:

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

Finalists Selected

Google and 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.
