YES WE CARE
Social entrepreneurs strive to solve burning issues in their local communities and national society by positing innovative solutions to social problems.
The idea behind the project ‘Youth Empowerment Through Social Entrepreneurship “We Care” (YES, WE CARE)’ is aimed at developing skills of youth to appreciate the community, the environment and their participation in the social and political processes as well as to work on sustainable businesses in the field of social entrepreneurship (SE).
THE STORY OF YES WE CARE 2
The innovativeness in this project, primarily, is mirrored through the combination of different experiences and views on social entrepreneurship, as well as through the exchange of know-how. Here we understand the social entrepreneurship as a tool for youth empowerment, through which youngsters can become active shapers of their communities. YES, We Care 2 will be a continuation of our previous project, this time focused more on boosting the business potentials of the mapped ideas and enterprises as well as expanding its activities from East to South Africa region.
With this project, we initiate a network of conscious young activists and social entrepreneurs from Europe and Africa who are working to educate, liberate, and empower the youth in their local communities through spreading of social consciousness and development.
The project wants to support the encouragement of creating social businesses as possible new ways of sustainability can guarantee the income for youth being aware of the difficulties and socio-economic problems that some African as we all as European regions are dealing with.
This joint program can contribute to youth organizations development and could increase their sustainability worldwide.
The project connects the business sector with non-governmental organizations in Europe and in the regions in Africa. We can learn from each other how to be more socially responsible as well as more sustainable. The project is also connected to the UN adoption of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
