    Hi Unia, nice meeting you. I would love to hear more about your social enterprise, do keep this forum posted please. And I would encourage you to share both success stories and challenges you may encounter along the way. I have agricultural background and I am always passionate about livestock and crop production. Have you already decided on the type(s) of livestock your projects will focus on? Congratulations on being considered a course Ambassador. It is worthwhile undertaking in my opinion. Thanks

    Hello everyone.
    My name is Betty Mbithi founder as Abetec Business Solutions. Social enterprises where we mentor and guide entrepreneurs understand problems, identify solutions, implement their plans and achieve their goals.

    I also coach young girls and women on how to discover their hidden potential and live a purposeful life.

    Besides being a social entrepreneur I love everything chocolate, networking, traveling and Web.

    What I am looking forward as a course ambassador is help as many people create change as possible.

    I know getting to the root of the most complex social challenges takes courage, humility and resilience. But, together, we can promote human development.

    I’m thrilled and thankful I found all of you.

      My name is Kehinde from Nigeria. I have a dual educational background in Social work & Food Science. I currently work with Matrix Solicitors. As an individual i derive passion by putting smiles on People's faces, helping them out of their challenges ,most importantly the marginalized ones. i also educate people about healthy eating and lifestyle. I practice this gesture unofficially as needs arises within my reach. However , with the vast knowledge acquired from this platform, i would like to be a part of the change the world is looking for by working or partnering with NGO that supports children, women and the aged group in the local community. It's a great honour to be one the Philanthropy University Ambassador. As i learn, will be glad to share my knowledge with people of same interests.

    You are doing amazing work Unia. How is your program structured in terms of production and marketing? Where do you source animals to distribute for example? How do you sell them? I am so much interested because my organization tried rabbits two years ago with little success. We hope to re-introduce the program so lessons from you would be very helpful. Feel free to share challenges as well so we can learn together. Cheers

    That's amazing to hear, @Tawina. I am sure your organization's impact in the lives of those 2,000 girls reaches far beyond just that. Do you have any stories about how your impact has championed social change in those communities? Do you have challenges that you are comfortable sharing?
