General information

Whenever a society is stuck with an idea, it needs an entrepreneur to see the opportunity and then turn that into a realistic vision. This is termed as social entrepreneurship; where change is created by applying business acumen in social initiatives to improve the lives of others. It is not a charity in a sense that it does not provide temporary relief; rather it leaves a lasting impact on the disadvantaged by creating sustainable business ventures to address socio-economic problems.The Uhuru Institute is this entrepreneur!
