Reckitt's Fight for Access Accelerator Program

About Fight for Access:

The Fight for Access Accelerator program aims to find and foster social enterprises that bring innovation and solutions to the main challenges of access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in pursuit of prevention and reduction of diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, and malaria in Nigeria.

Program benefits:

  1. Tailored support & capacity-building: Selected social businesses will receive mentorship and practical guidance from Reckitt experts and industry professionals who offer support in various areas of WASH and impact. Workshops and masterclasses cover topics like leadership, investor readiness, and impact measurement & management.  
  2. Network access: Alongside getting to meet fellow social entrepreneurs in the WASH sector, participants get to expand their network with local industry experts and Reckitt brand leads, all of whom represent opportunities to collaborate and create a systems-based approach to fighting for access to WASH.  
  3. Seed funding: For every social business that completes the programme, they will receive seed funding which can be used to continue to scale the growth of the business beyond the accelerator. 

“I had an incredible experience during the FFA accelerator, but my highlight was discovering tools such as the Theory of Change and Impact Measurement and Management Framework. Through the program, I was able to align our business activities with our impact goals. These tools helped me understand the outcomes we need to achieve to make a meaningful difference in the world, and I'm excited to continue applying them in the future.”

 - Kgalabi Mongatane, Founder of ECOBA, Fight for Access Accelerator Cohort 1 in South Africa 

The solutions we are seeking for the Fight for Access accelerator must be focused on either or both of the following pillars in WASH:

 
  1. Information, community management & behavioural change 
  2. Innovation & decentralisation to the current system

Financing Farmers In Rural Uganda - Cycle Connect Is A Social Business Making Tracks To End Poverty

We spoke to Molly Burke co-founder of Cycle Connect, our latest investment in our Ugandan Fund. Cycle Connect provides rural smallholder farmers with the necessary tools to propel them out of poverty.

We took a holistic, expedient and humane approach to support smallholder farmers in Colombia

On 20 March this year, Luis Miguel Botero discovered that his social business, Pomario, faced an existential threat. It was the day that a nation-wide quarantine in Colombia was announced, which was ultimately extended until the end of August. For Botero, as for many business owners, this presented the threat that his social businesses’ revenues would disappear overnight.
