    Goals / Remit

    Reach for Change is an international non profit organization with the mission to unleash the power of social entrepreneurs and create a world where all children and youth reach their full potential. We were founded in 2010 and have so far supported more than 1,500 local social entrepreneurs across 18 countries, who in turn reached over 4.7 million children and youth with their innovative solutions. As well as capacity development, we also work to develop local and national social entrepreneurship ecosystems and have over the years become prominent sectoral stakeholders in countries such as Sweden, Bulgaria, Ghana and Ethiopia. Our 2030 strategy has challenged us to multiply our impact ten-fold and reach over 30 million children and youth over the next decade, focusing particularly on the thematic areas of poverty, inequality and climate change.
