    ABOUT GAMES FOR CHANGE AFRICA

    Games for Change empowers game creators and social innovators to drive impact through digital games. Games for Change (G4C) based in New York, hosts multiple events and activations across the world throughout the year that bring together all facets of the video game and immersive media industries.

    Gaming is a rapidly growing and evolving field, driven by emerging technologies that are transforming the way we collaborate and communicate with each other. Through a variety of special initiatives and programs, G4C is fostering communities of practice for people of all ages  to collaboratively design the future of gaming, today.

    Games for Change Africa is the most recent addition to the G4C family, formally launched at African Games Week in February 2022. The creation of an African G4C chapter aims to bring together everyone interested in using games to drive social, learning, and business goals across the continent.

    Games for Change Africa is overseen by Sea Monster Entertainment.
