Preference would be given to the following themes;

  1. Peace and harmony
  2. Behavior changes to reduce violence
  3. Women economic empowerment
  4. Climate change
  5. Social inclusion
  6. Empowerment through information, communication, technology (ICT)

The ideas will be evaluated and shortlisted by a panel of judges. These are small grants of up to USD 2000. The winning team/student will also receive mentorship from the Accountability Lab before their social enterprises/small projects are launched.
