Accra SOUP holds 6th crowdfunding dinner July 8

The crave for a bowl of hot sumptuous soup may be enough motivation for you to head towards  Impact Hub on the 8th of July at 5:00pm. 


The greater satisfaction, however, comes from the quota you will contribute to fund a social project in Greater Accra.

 Accra SOUP is a micro-granting dinner to fund, celebrate and support creative social projects in Accra. It is Accra’s response to the global SOUP movement which started in Detroit.
After successfully organizing five events; the sixth crowdfunding dinner is set to be bigger and a lot more exciting. Accra SOUP has grown in popularity since its maiden edition in August 2015 and has become a must-attend for young people and grown-ups alike, who want to make a difference in their communities.

If you are wondering what Accra SOUP is all about; it is a really simple concept. People turn up to the dinner, make a minimum donation of 10cedis at the door (those who can are encouraged to donate more) and that entitles them to a bowl of soup plus a vote! Yes, a VOTE!

But what are they voting for?

Accra SOUP is a great place to meet like-mind young people.

Attendees listen to four people pitch an idea to improve any problem they have identified in Accra. Pitchers may use PowerPoint and have a maximum of four minutes to share the idea. The audience are then allowed to ask the pitchers questions about their problem-solving ideas.


The ideas that are presented range from art, urban agriculture, social justice, social work, education, technology and many more. It can be about any brilliant idea that can solve a problem or enhance life in Accra.

After the presentations and questions, delicious soup (light soup) is served; Ghana style. The audience is encouraged to come along with their own foods as well to add to it and share with others. But this is optional. Attendees get to network and ask the pitchers some more questions over a bowl of SOUP.

Then the audience cast ballots for the idea they liked the most. The votes and the money collected at the door are counted. The idea with the most votes gets to take home all the donations taken at the door and use it to fund their plan, with a public pledge to come back in three months (at the next dinner) to give a report on how they used the money.

So, do well to stop by on Saturday, 8th July, at Impact Hub Accra, Labone (behind Arko Adjei Park) at 5:00pm just to have some soup, meet new people, network with community-minded individuals and remember, soup can indeed bring change.
