The social enterprise reality of Ethiopia.
Social enterprise is increasingly capturing the imagination across Africa and around the world, with Ethiopia one of the countries leading the way, according to a report.
The report reveals that there are an estimated 55,000 social enterprises in the country. Its capital, Addis Ababa, will host the 2019 Social Enterprise World Forum in October.
Social enterprises are firms that deliver a positive social change and re-invest profits into furthering their good work.
Following the success of the World Forum in Edinburgh in 2018, the 2019 World Forum will be a historic occasion as it is the first time the event will be held in a developing market economy.
More than 1,200 delegates from around the world are expected to attend in order to learn, share and network with each other.
