Problems of poverty and inequality have a complex correlation between them. While governmental policy is the biggest change agent, we need social entrepreneurs to effectively address these problems at the grassroots. Here are some promising social entrepreneurs I spoke to.
If we as a nation have to achieve SDG # 10 that focuses on reducing inequality we need to transition large masses of people out of poverty towards better opportunities and ultimately a better life. Social entrepreneurship can be a game changer.
Poverty and Inequality have a co-relation in our country. We could address both of them simultaneously if the Government and Social Entrepreneurs work in tandem to bring basic necessities and livelihood opportunities to those at the bottom of the pyramid.
The role of social entrepreneurs in the areas of access to basic necessities and creation of livelihood opportunities can certainly help our country take great strides towards the ideal goal of ‘No Poverty’.
