Global Minimum (GMin) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that runs innovative learning
programs for young people in Kenya and Sierra Leone between the age 13-18. GMin programs enhance
critical and creative thinking, promote civic engagement, strengthen STEAM literacies and develop
entrepreneurship and leadership skills in youth. Our global partners include Autodesk, Adobe, MIT, Segal
Family Foundation, Lemelson Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative.
GMin’s Innovation Lab (InLab) program is a low-cost, light weight makerspace that provides youth in the
partner school with the opportunity to learn user-centered design principles, collaboration, and creative
thinking through a carefully crafted curriculum. The core aspects that drive the InLabs program are safe
and adequate physical spaces, technical tools, mentorship, and innovation leadership. The pilot InLab is
expected to launch in Nairobi in July 2015.
GMin’s Innovate Challenges (InChallenges) program elicits civic action projects from youth around the
country and offers design workshops, seed funding, and mentorship for select student teams to develop
their concepts into tangible solutions that positively affect their community. The InChallenges program
runs annually in Kenya and Sierra Leone.
