Togo : Lomé hosts 3-day workshop on social entrepreneurship, organized by US embassy and CNEJ

(Togo First) - On March 25, 2019, a three-day workshop on social entrepreneurship was started at the University of Lomé. Initiated by the US embassy and the national coalition for youth employment (CNEJ). This workshop aims at helping young people build their ideas and turn these into products meeting international standards.

What distinguishes social entrepreneurship from traditional entrepreneurship is that the first integrates a social component, beyond personal interests.

The workshop will be led by Theresa Carrington, social entrepreneur, founder and CEO of Ten by Three, a firm that empowers rural communities through craftsmanship.

Let’s note that just before the training was opened, a memorandum of understanding was signed by the CNEJ and the US embassy. This agreement’s purpose is to establish a resource framework for social entrepreneurship, as well as ensure the organization of an annual conference on this topic.
