Creating a Community of Global Citizens

Rise Above is striving to put together a global Ambassador Program that will advocate and bring awareness to the SDG Impact Accelerator, this will provide a change in narrative and a clear on-ramp to global citizens who desire to work on and with refugee issues. The Ambassador Program aims to advocate and drive global citizens to the platform while changing the narrative of life as a refugee.

The SDG Impact Accelerator (SDGia) - A global accelerator built by a multi stakeholder platform focusing on empowering “systems entrepreneurs” and innovators who are providing impact at scale. SDGia aims to generate market-creating innovations initially for refugee populations and least-developed country (LDC) populations. We are building a unique model for accelerating the discovery and market entry of solutions for the selected big problems. Market-creating innovations are executed by mobilizing different stakeholders to catalyze systems change. Success looks like: - Global awareness and partnerships for the SDG Impact Accelerator program - Entrepreneurs globally are creating solutions for refugee challenges - An inclusive community of global citizens who are working together to support displaced people all over the world.
