  • Social entrepreneurship is a new and creative approach to business, social engagements, and social services.

  • Today , there are numerous organizations operating worldwide in our country that you'd call social enterprises.

  • A social enterprise is just like any other business.

  • Its work is charged at market rates and it generates profits.

  • What makes it the business on a human scale is the way the profit is used.

  • Profit serves to fulfill clear social missions.

  • Social enterprises do not serve to enlarge the wealth of their owners or shareholders.

  • They operate in order to contribute to social equality and to improve the living conditions of people in the community.

  • Generated profit is reinvested in business or in realizing social goals like job creation, social inclusion, cultural needs, healthcare, and preservation of the environment.
