Munir and Mugwisi were winners of both the Social Venture Challenge and the Commitment to Action Certificate.

Representatives of EPICS Stair Gardens Project, Mohammed Munir and Ngoni Mugwisi traveled to Miami from March 6-8, 2015 for the Clinton Global Initiative.

Mugwisi competed in the Social Venture Challenge on behalf of his EPICS team and became one of fifteen winners out of 191 participants. Winning this provides the team with mentors, resources, networking opportunities, and funding ranging from $3,000 to $5,000.

However, Stair Garden’s accolades do not stop there. Munir and Mugwisi were selected to represent their team during a session entitled “Reclaiming the Concrete Jungle: Investing in Urban Green Spaces.”

At the end of CGI U, Stair Gardens walked away with a Commitment to Action Certificate and interacted with over 200 commitment makers at their exhibit at the CGI U Exchange.
