FIT aims to support testing of a range of creative solutions
to development challenges, and provide organizations with
the opportunity to learn and grow as innovators.
Innovative solutions must create inclusive opportunities for
local communities from project conception to execution.
Testing innovation enables organizations to experiment,
learn best practices and assess an idea’s potential to scale.
