Since 1999 Impumelelo has collected the quintessential database of social innovation projects and includes but is not confined to projects in the following areas and sectors:
Water | Environment | HIV/Aids | Housing | Sanitation and waste | Public Works | Justice and Security | Rural Development | Education | Early Childhood Development | Arts & Culture | Food Security | Enterprise Development | Youth Development | Health
After 16 awards cycles, it has grown in leaps and bounds, having attracted 1900 applications ( which now forms part of our database). 512 projects have received monetary awards in categories such as social entrepreneur, platinum, gold, and silver. Projects are compelled to use their award prizes to disseminate their model and success story to promote replication and for others to emulate in their contexts.
Below some of our featured projects.
