To build a dynamic citizen sector capable of effecting positive social change.


To create and sustain a civic movement of social entrepreneurship.

Our Beliefs

  • Social change is inevitable; but positive social change is more desirable.
  • A dynamic and powerful citizen sector (as distinct from, but in collaboration with, business and government sectors) can produce more positive social change.
  • An ever-growing number of social entrepreneurs will constitute a major force in changing the society for the better.
  • Not everyone could become a social entrepreneur, but everyone could support the social entrepreneurship movement.
