Non-profit Organizations (NPOs) and social enterprises play a critical role in bridging the gaps in service delivery in countries, promoting good governance, human rights and social justice. Increasingly, they are also at the forefront of innovations that improve the quality of education and healthcare.
However, a key challenge the social sector faces is building strong, resilient organizations with teams and structures to maximize resources and achieve the desired social impact.
Non-profit organizations and social enterprises sectors suffer challenges of inadequate presentation and proposal writing skills, limited funding or access to financing, weak internal governance mechanisms; this affects their overall effectiveness and sustainability.
