The World Bank The Social Inclusion Heroes (SIH) Story Competition

The World Bank’s Africa Region and its Social Development Department are launching a Story Competition to identify positive role models for African youth. Its primary purpose is to change Africa’s development narrative by highlighting inspirational and transformational African success stories.  

The competition is open to anyone under 40 years old, carrying out great work transforming the lives of socially excluded people in your community—for example, street children, disabled persons, albinos, and in some societies, twins— in Africa.

Send your story in by the December 15, 2017 and you may become one of our Social Inclusion Heroes, win a trip to Washington, D.C., and other prizes.
