Fundi Bots is thrilled to announce our participation in the 2014 Echoing Green Global Fellows Program. Our founder Solomon King was chosen out of almost 3,000 applicants to be among 41 social entrepreneurs who will accelerate the impact of their ventures through the Echoing Green program
Echoing Green invests and supports deeply passionate people committed to being lifetime leaders in the social impact space. Over the next two years Fundi Bots will receive funding and training and benefit from Echoing Green’s extended network of over 600 driven and powerful individuals and organisations creating significant social impact globally.
Echoing Green believes in investing in and supporting the right people relative to the right ideas and ability to execute, and their fellows include the founders of such programs as Teach for America and the One Acre Fund. Being chosen to participate in the Global Fellows Program is an endorsement of Fundi Bots’ mission to use robotics training to inspire Ugandan students and give them the skills and attitudes to change the world around them. It is a vote of confidence that the Fundi team are the right people to see technology become meaningful to African communities through STEM education reform.
We are proud and grateful for the opportunity to take part in the Echoing Green Fellows program and we are excited to bring new and better Fundi Bots programs through the support of Echoing Green.
