Social Enterprising and Africa’s Sustainable Development
October 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmfree
The role of Social Entrepreneurship in driving economic development in Africa cannot be overemphasized.
Across the developing world, a great number of social challenges are evident. Poverty, economic inequality and underdeveloped health services present a real threat to those who call these nations home. Previously, much of the relief provided to alleviate these issues has come through aid from more prosperous countries, however growing levels of alternatives, such as social entrepreneurship, are now being actively pursued.
Social entrepreneurs are those whose goal is the achievement of systemic and sustainable social change. Often this is through innovation, perhaps through the invention of a new product or technology, or through adaptation of existing methods, such as making aspects of healthcare more affordable to those who require it.
For social entrepreneurs, the end goal is poverty alleviation or societal development, whether in a non-profit or business setting.
The Social Enterprising and Africa’s Sustainable Development Summit is aimed at bringing together Social Innovators and Directors of Non-Governmental Organizations and Community Development Organizations in Nigeria to dialogue a framework for sustaining community development projects in Nigeria, Africa and monetization of the existing infrastructures to generate revenue for continuity of projects.
Date: 4th October, 2019.
Venue: The American Corner Spaces, Ground Floor, 294 Hebert Macaulay Way, Sabo-Yaba, Lagos.
