About

There are many hurdles that societies face across the world. However, the reality shows that governments and NGOs can’t tackle those alone. This is because the nature of these problems is very diverse and solving them requires different solutions and approaches.

We believe, that regardless of different local settings, social entrepreneurship is the answer to combatting numerous social issues. Entrepreneurship (of any kind) can create workplaces for those in need. Moreover, it can also take on social issues and lead to wider potential benefits for the whole society. Yet, social entrepreneurship is still an unknown concept to most of the youngsters, as well as youth workers. Youth’s (entrepreneurial) ideas could be a key to progress. Having this in mind, all the partner organizations participating in the project seek to promote, provide and expand education on social entrepreneurship among the youth and youth workers.
