The six-month program will support selected creators worldwide in building engaged communities, reaching new audiences, and unlocking real-world opportunities. This will be achieved through dedicated tools, resources, and donations to designated non-profit organizations.

An integral part of the TikTok Change Makers Programme is the TikTok Change Makers Grant. Through this grant, TikTok will donate over $1 million to more than 30 global and local non-profit organizations supporting various important causes. Each Changemaker will be honored with a $25,000 direct donation to support their respective advocacies, thereby elevating the impact of their work.

Selection Process

To officially launch this program, TikTok is celebrating and unveiling an inaugural global list of Change Makers, comprising 50 purpose-driven creators from around the world. Whether it’s spreading positivity or sharing good deeds, these Change Makers continue to advocate, inspire, and educate their communities to drive collective change on TikTok and beyond. Dennis has been an inspiration; regularly distributes meals to deserving people across Nairobi.

Focus on Africa

As part of the TikTok Change Makers Programme, four purpose-driven creators from Africa have been selected to impact and inspire their audiences on TikTok and beyond significantly.

In Kenya, Dennis Ombachi, known as @theroamingchef, was chosen as a Changemaker.
