Lomé to host social entrepreneurship forum on June 6, 2019

(Togo First) - Next June 6-7, there will be a social entrepreneurship forum in Togo. The event is organized by the US embassy, Ecobank, Alafia and organizations promoting social economy in Togo.

At this occasion, issues related to the legal framework defining social enterprises and possible advantages they could benefit from will be discussed. The latter could come as tax or administrative incentives aimed at fostering the firms, not primarily to help them make profits but rather boost populations’ living standards.

The matters of Togo’s social entrepreneurship ecosystem and corporate social responsibility (CSR) will also be covered.

Let’s recall that in March this year, the US embassy and the national youth employment coalition (CNEJ) organized a 3-day training workshop on social entrepreneurship. The latter was led by Theresa Carrington, a US social entrepreneur and CEO of Ten By Three, a firm empowering rural communities through craftsmanship.
