Event description

Description

At Nairobi Stew, you get to create change by investing in initiatives that have a positive impact on Nairobi. Your donation of 500 bob, 4 pitches, stew and a vote is all we need to create change in our community.

How does it work?

By investing 500 bob in the Nairobi Stew donation pot, you receive a bowl of stew and a ballot, after which you will listen to four changemakers present their initiatives to make our city a better place to live. Of course, the audience also gets the opportunity to ask them tough questions to see which one can make the most of the investment that is at stake.

After that, you get to enjoy your bowl of stew, interact with other "investors" in the audience and discuss which initiative is most investment-worthy, after which you'll exercise your right to vote. At the end of the night, we count the ballots and the winner of the popular vote goes home with crowdfunded pot of donations to carry out their project. The winner will then come back to a future Stew dinner to report their project’s progress.

The last winner was Student Vortex, an online platform that enables students in tertiary institutions to find internship/attachment opportunities through the use of career development and skill matching within the platform to guarantee proper placement of students in different companies.

As much as Nairobi Stew is a great way to raise fnds for a worthy project, the money is not the best part about the evening. The best thing is that the presenters get to build community support and connections to local resources, volunteers and expertise. Our aim is to make sure that every presenter of the evening goes home with connections and pledges of support from the community.
