Our world is in need of heroes! People who look beyond themselves to identify and solve the problems in their communities. These heroes need to be hand held and taught how to build sustainable initiatives and make impact.
The mentees in the Social Enterprise Cohort of S.M.I.L.E’s 2023/2024 Executive Mentoring Program for Youth (EMPY), had an insightful session during their third module as they were groomed on how to navigate their impact journey as social entrepreneurs.
Our profound gratitude to our dear trustee, Mr Praise Fowowe; Principal Consultant, Praise Fowowe Research LLC, USA who gave a practical teaching on the topic- Understanding the Framework of Social Entrepreneurship.
He admonished the mentee to define their mission, develop a sustainable business model, engage their target community/stakeholders, tell their stories right, document their journey, leverage networking and focus on the tasks at hand while embracing transparency and accountability.
