SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP  -  Our Commitment  

 

For every programme presented to a paying client, a programme will be made available free of charge to leaders of communities and organizations unable to pay for their own training and development.  Businesses will receive written confirmation and supporting documentation to be used as support for their SED claims on the B-BBEE Scorecard.

We thus aim to reach:

  • Economically active persons, irrespective of the level, from CEO to shop floor operator and administrative clerk, knowing that they will see a return on this investment.
  • Community leaders in disadvantaged and low income areas committed to improving the lives of the people they serve. Post graduate students and unemployed graduates may also be trained in the art of facilitation, going on to become community workers themselves.

We believe the leaders of these two sectors of society greatly influence the well-being of our nation.

Delegates become agents of Social Change advocating conscious choice. They understand that the right to individual freedom goes hand in hand with personal and collective responsibility.
