Spice Without Borders is a global leadership academy and incubator for social change innovation that provides a six-month entrepreneurship mentorship and one-on-one training to women and men as well aged 18 years and older from the margins of society who have overcome adversity and want to enact social change in their backyards through innovation and cultural transformation. We are registered as an international nonprofit organization in Kenya under section 10 of the non-governmental organizations coordination Act on 13th October 2015.
Through our Spice Accelerator program, we offer a six month catalytic training that equips participants, based on their talents and dreams, with creative ideas, tools, methods and skills they need to initiate sustainable ventures that accelerate social change in their backyards.
We target women and men as well aged 18 years and older, who have overcome adversity in their lives. We equip these individuals with the skills, methods and know-how to ethically initiate sustainable ventures that accelerate social change in their backyards.
Our highly competitive intake is for between 6 – 16 participants from East Africa for now. In future we would like to admit participants from all parts of the globe.
Participants are exposed through SpiceTalks, a catalytic accelerator for intense social change where we identify change leaders from our communities who are privy to social ills and are passionate about accelerating social change. On this platform, the leaders creatively share their personal stories that amplify social ills and exceptionally spicy ideas from the backyard of society.
By this we seek to urgently disrupt and change perceptions as we develop a new generation of change leaders who are passionate about transforming mindsets, monetizing their abilities and creatively impact those at the backyard by generating engagements that enable partnerships for local action.
Our Vision: We envision an open-minded society creatively transformed by authentic social change accelerators with the virtue of equity and equality.
Our Mission: To equip a new generation of change leaders from the backyards of society with ideas and skills necessary to sustainably accelerate social change.
Our Idea: Our catalytic training equips participants with creative ideas and skills they need to initiate sustainable ventures that accelerate social change in their backyards.
Creativity and Authenticity: We challenge each individual to think like there is no box, new ways, ideas, insights and partners to stretch the boundaries of possibilities for change only comes by creatively pursuing opportunities without the fear of failure.
Equity and Equality: We believe that all human beings are entitled to basic rights and equitable access to opportunities and resources regardless of sex, ethnicity, race, birth, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation or other status.
Integrity: It is at the core of what we say and do as we build genuine relationships based on respect and sense of equality. We are accountable and answerable for our conduct to each and all others and strive to maintain high ethical and professional standards in our relations.
