Former rugby player now turned popular content creator, Dennis Ombachi, known as The Roaming Chef is among the 50 creators from across the world selected for TikTok Change Makers Program. 

The program marks the platform’s first-ever global social impact creator elevation initiative, spotlighting creators and non-profits who drive meaningful change in their communities through TikTok.

It aims to showcase its global community's diverse voices and strengths as it educates, advocates, and inspires communities to drive meaningful, positive, and lasting change.

“Through the Grant, we are donating over $1 million to over 30 global and local non-profit organizations, making a $25,000 direct donation in honor of every Change Maker to support their respective advocacies while elevating the impact of their work,” said TikTok in a statement.

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

In Kenya, Ombachi, who won Best African Content Creator in 2022, was chosen as a Changemaker.

The six-month programme will support selected creators from around the world in building engaged communities, reaching new audiences, and unlocking real-world opportunities.

‘’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.’’ TikTok said in a statement.

This will be achieved through dedicated tools, resources and donations to designated non-profit organisations.
