About YES WE CARE
Facing the Forth Industrial Revolution and discussing the work skills of the future, the entrepreneurship has to be understood in the context of engagement and impact on the community, a tool not only for employment, but also for gaining life skills, strengthening one’s social responsibility, and developing empathy. Namely, this is what we want to achieve with our project Youth Empowerment through Social Entrepreneurship “We Care, Too”: YES “We Care, 2”, where together with our partners from two continents we will address the social entrepreneurship as a tool for self-employability, impact and empowerment.
YES, We Care 2 comes as a follow up of the YES, We Care project being implemented in partnership between countries from Europe and East Africa. While through it we aimed on educating young people on social entrepreneurship and empowering them on action in Europe and East Africa, now we will focus on providing durable development of the social entrepreneurship initiatives and we will expand our activities in the region of South Africa.
In addition, the idea of the project about social entrepreneurship based on learning from good practices would contribute to the awareness-raising of the youth organizations in Europe about the responsibility and sustainability of their actions and being. It will widely encourage exchange of experience between the EU and global organizations and would contribute towards an increase of opportunities for youth to exchange views on global issues with their peers, a promotion of entrepreneurship and youth participation as well as it would contribute towards the young people’s encouragement to build up the youth social capital in the countries.
The project is in line with the priorities of Erasmus + programme, EU Youth Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular, decent work and economic growth and industry, innovation and infrastructure.
