Mumbai can be daunting yet there is a side to it like no other. Between the hustle and bustle of city life lies a booming social enterprise and sustainability scene that is driven by local social innovators.

YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS WINTER PROGRAM
December: 21st -27th, 2019
Fort Mumbai, India
Understand the role of women startups and social enterprises in India. Stunted by both, cultural norms - in a society that frequently sees women as simply homemakers, cleaners, mothers, daughters, and wives - as well as a lack of financial independence, women in low-income communities are ill-disposed to break the cycle of their poverty. Fortunately, there is reason for optimism.
Understand how innovative social enterprises are disrupting the status quo. This journey is ideal for those who are passionate about social change and looking to transition into a new impact-focused career or advance their understanding of social impact. The social enterprise strategy combines a social mission with its commercial activities, a trait that sets it apart from traditional non-profits.
1 Discover 'you' as a changemaker
The best way to reverse that feeling of 'not sure how' is to contribute your strengths to solve the issues that bother you.
We organise customized social impact journeys for individuals and groups. Each social impact journey is focussed on 3 sustainable development goals.
