Together with the young people who chose to participate in our program, we had the opportunity to discover that the idea of social entrepreneurship is necessary in the community and at the same time can be a viable tool for young people with leadership skills. Performance and professional success is closely linked to the ambition to contribute to change. An ambition that comes from one's own value system, and probably for some cannot be explained pragmatically. It is simply an inner motivation to do good. The joy of others, the magnitude of the change you produce through the skill and knowledge youhave - these are some of the motivations of social entrepreneurs and the rewards they expect. And we are very happy that this project has given us the opportunity to meet many such young people from Rep. Moldova and Ukraine!
Congratulations to all the young people who had the courage to participate! We hope that the ideas that have been selected for funding will become sustainable startups, will have a positive impact in the community and will contribute to the development of social entrepreneurship in the region!
