Community For Lifetime

A social entrepreneur is someone who creates innovative, sustainable solutions to social problems using entrepreneurial principles. They are driven by a passion for making a positive impact on society and are committed to creating change that lasts.

Social entrepreneurship is the need of the hour because traditional approaches to solving social problems have not been effective in addressing the complex challenges we face today. Social entrepreneurs bring fresh perspectives and innovative approaches to social issues. Moreover, social entrepreneurship is critical in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are aimed at eradicating poverty, promoting social equality, and ensuring environmental sustainability
