Lahore- 18th August, 2017.
The Seplaa Enterprises held an information session as an Orientation Workshop for the Faculty Members of Kinnaird College in the Hladia Hall of Kinnaird College.
The workshop was given by Seplaa Enterprises Founder & CEO, Mrs. Ammara Farooq Malik. Almost 100 Kinnaird College Faculty Members, including Principal Dr. Rukhsana David, Dean, Associate Deans, HoDs and staff were given a detailed orientation about Seplaa Enterprise, ICx Seplaa, Incubator & Trainings, Sewegap Women Hub, Seplaa Social Entrepreneurs Forum of Asia & Middle East – Seplaa Sefa-me, Impact Seplaa World Think Tank, Seplaa Young Leaders’ Club and the Seplaa Foundation.
The concept of social entrepreneurship emerging as a mode of conducting business while benefiting the community, was touched upon as a pillar of future programs to be conducted by ICx Seplaa at Kinnaird.
ICx Seplaa programs will be starting at Kinnaird College for Women from September 2017 and are expected to reach across to over 2000 students each year from 2017-2020.
This is part of a 3 years long MoU of Seplaa Enterprises with Kinnaird College for Women whereby Seplaa team will be reaching across to 2000 direct student beneficiaries each year through various programs. Through a detailed schedule, 6000 young women in 3 years and an additional 42,000 indirect beneficiaries are expected to learn about the benefits of becoming a part of the Seplaa projects and training programs.
The intention is to create a ripple effect of community action and learning about social enterprise development to build peace, create green solutions, empower women and youth.
