"A system that will help people on the ground achieve impact better and faster, together"
— Reda Sadki, The Geneva Learning Foundation
About the Impact Accelerator
Being a Scholar does not end on the last day of a course.
In some countries, Scholars have spontaneously initiated informal, self-led and motivated groupings of professionals operating across agencies that may provide a different kind of lever for systemic change than traditional top-down approaches.
In Nigeria, for example,….
Building on these emergent dynamics, the Geneva Learning Foundation has established the Impact Accelerator programme connecting Scholar graduates to collaborate with colleagues from around the world as they move from ideas toward collaborative project implementation.
Only Scholars who have already proved themselves highly capable professionals in at least one intensive six week Scholar course can sign up for the Impact Accelerator Programme. In many cases they have already displayed exceptional dedication by acting as accompanists to support the next cohort of scholars through the programme. In the Impact Accelerator they take it a step further and pledge that their project is good enough to take to Impact and that they will dedicate the time and effort to collaborate with their colleagues to covert it into action on the ground.
Scholars on the road to impact
Scholars pledge to achieve impact
In each Scholar programme, participants are asked to make a pledge to enter the Accelerator programme. This is the pledge made by Scholars who work to transform immunization.
I commit to work for a world where everyone everywhere fully benefits from access to vaccines for improved health and wellbeing.
As a scholar I hereby solemnly pledge to:
• Work with others to transform Scholar led projects into action resulting in improved immunization outcomes.
• Share my successes as well as my challenges through regular reporting on my journey to implementation.
• Support my fellow Scholars as they implement their own pledge.
• At all times uphold the highest standard of integrity and behavior.
I make this pledge to contribute to the global goals for immunization for the health of children and families in my country and everywhere.
