What's a social entrepreneur?
Social Entrepreneurs can be anybody with an idea of how they can solve a problem and make their community better. With support, these individuals or groups set up a social enterprise business, which enables them to help their neighbourhood.

Social enterprises are proving to be a fantastic alternative to ensure that services continue, facilities stay open or social problems are resolved.
