Introducing #SMWLagosCARES

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Our new blog series, #SMWLagosCARES, will highlight grassroots solutions-based approached from across Africa rooted in love for the community, ingenuity, innovation and creativity.

The SMW Lagos team is committed to providing a place where Africans can showcase their work to address the challenges facing the Continent. No more will Africans be infantilized and shown through the lens of Western exceptionalism. Every Thursday we will feature a new venture empowering Africans through media, education, business savvy, technology and sustainability. Stay tuned for our first post next week!

Do you, or someone you know, have a project that fits this criteria? If so, send an e-mail to to tell us about it!
