HiPipo; the organizer of the annual Digital Impact Awards Africa has today 9th June started receiving entries for the #DIAA2019 event slated for 20th September at the Kampala Serena Hotel.

Under the theme ‘Include Everyone, Digital Impact Awards Africa is a platform that promotes Digital Inclusion, Financial Inclusion and Cybersecurity. Precisely; the Awards seek to recognize, celebrate and appreciate different individuals and organizations that are spearheading the use of digital mediums to better serve their communities.
While confirming this development, Innocent Kawooya, the CEO of HiPipo noted that the entry submission process will go on until the last day of June 2019.

“The 6th edition of the digital impact awards is here. All individuals and companies leading the digital and financial inclusion revolution are encouraged to submit their entries in the over 20 categories listed on the project portal.

This is a critical process and highly impacts the project in its entirety,” Innocent Kawooya noted, adding;
“Just like last year, we are again running under the bigger Include EveryOne program. We believe that an economy that includes everyone benefits everyone. As such, this program sensitizes operators and service providers to bring financial services to the poor through the use of innovative business models, and mobile technology. We also believe that successful and impactful financial inclusion efforts must be well researched, modeled, positioned, promoted, marketed, distributed, and critiqued as well as celebrated and awarded where possible.”
This year’s Include EveryOne program will include a collection of interlinked financial inclusion outreach projects including hackathon, expo, summit, awards and research.

The highlighted projects will be managed in a synchronized way to obtain maximum benefits of ensuring impactful engagement of financial inclusion stakeholders to effectively promote approaches that will enable financial inclusion for everyone.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
