We want to thank everyone who participated and helped
to make the competition a success!

We are happy to announce that the winner of the ChangeMakers Seed Funding 2023 competition is the team at Trashcycler!

A recircular economy app, based in Nigeria is selected from more than 1200 submissions from 75 different countries. 

“We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of excellent submissions and the remarkable quality of the proposals we were given. The decision of selecting just one winner was hard, however, in the end, Khaalisisi was the one that stood out the most to us, and we are sure they will put the prize to good use.”
