Student social entrepreneurs offer promise in Pakistan

Creativity and self-confidence encourage a generation of innovative business start-ups.

One part of our Skills for Employability programme focuses on building entrepreneurship skills. We want to introduce people to the concept of social entrepreneurship from an early age and then develop their business skills. We developed two programmes, the Youth Social Enterprise Award and Show Your Creativity to bring this vision to fruition. 

With help from our programmes, a group of young Pakistanis became socially conscious entrepreneurs and fought for this understanding to make a positive impact in their communities.

  • Success: Pakistani social entrepreneurs
  • Industry: Multiple
  • Country: Pakistan
  • Key fact: 70,000 young people have had some social enterprise training in the last 3 years
