Economic and Social Problems
Todays’ business industries need an infusion of new generation’s of socially conscious citizens – pioneering and leading social and economic revitalization in local, regional, national and international underprivileged African and world communities in the areas of unrealistically high unemployment, poverty, assult, drug, homicide, thief crime levels, homelessness, sub-standard educational systems and inadequate public health care.
Whether in America or Zaire – “Underprivileged African Communities” throughout the world share the same common and identical societal and economic problems and everyone is directly and/or indirectly affected, in some way or another.
”Underprivileged African Communities” are comprised of the “global communities” from people of African origin living within and outside
the continent of Africa – irrespective of their citizenship and nationality
- and of those who are constitutive of the African diaspora (dispersion) through the enslavement and forced expatriation of Africans peoples and their descendants to places such as the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, the West Indies, Central and South America, Europe and Asia.
The populations of “Underprivileged African Communities” have an understanding of the causes, parameters, and barriers they confront at the management, the prevention and of the ideas they have for solving their problems, but have been and are institutionally overlooked, discriminated against, and excluded in the selective process with their own resolutions.
The Social Economic Enterprises Network offers “Underprivileged African Communities” alternate solutions for the problems impacting their lives by including them in the selective process for resolution through innovative educational initiatives, financial and resource information.
We are not all-inclusive to working with “Underprivileged African Communities,” on the contrary – but we are aware of the backlash and hardships other ethnic groups (Asians, Caucasian, Hispanic, Jewish, Native Americans, etc), face from a powerful and elite groups of people – people with unscrupulous social and economic advantages, corrupt government officials, special interest groups, the professional community leadership (PCL), and the absentee experts – who use fear and intimidation to demolish the courage and spirit of unity among people with the moral conviction to help each other.
Isa 41: 6 They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.
The Social Economic Enterprises Network is a powerful social networking and social purpose business site created specifically for promoting a “social entrepreneurial culture” to achieve the social and economic development of African peoples by providing engaging employment, sustainable wages, career and business ownership opportunities through the unlimited quantities of innovative, diverse utilities and resources within the worlds online and offline communities.
We characterize our site as an extended social group having a distinct cultural and economic establishment that integrates social goals and solutions into our business and operational models through a range of “social purpose businesses” (SPBs) having the sustainable economic activity in product and service production and marketing – while maintaining our commitment to create social value and social impact.
“Social entrepreneurship” has been defined as the creation of socially responsible enterprises whose aim is to generate profits, while solving social and environmental problems.
“Social entrepreneurship” is the work of social entrepreneurs.
As social entrepreneurs, we are aware of existing and perplexing social problems and are focused on creating “social capital”, utilizing earned-income from fee-for-service and/or product business models, together with entrepreneurial principles – to create, organize, and manage “social entrepreneurial” ventures to achieve economic and social value.
The uniqueness of “social entrepreneurship” extends the approach at addressing social issues and makes better use of advances in the functions of economic development within "Underprivileged African Communities."
We encourage and promote the uniqueness that “social entrepreneurship” offers in the application of advances in addressing social issues and the functions of economic development through - the business models of “social entrepreneurial” ventures (“social purpose businesses” (SPBs) within "Underprivileged African Communities."
The “social purpose businesses” (SPBs) models is the framework we have chosen to integrate business and social service technologies with our internal resources and the strategies employed by earned income ventures for economic stainability and to be successfully competitive in the service and product markets while maintaining commitment to our social goals.
Our “social purpose business” (SPBs) ventures were not only created for social purposes but were formed to operate with the same financial disciplines, innovation and determination of commercial business – as revenue generating ventures to create economic opportunities – for a profit and are primarily dependent on their “earned income streams” in order to expand or reinvest for its business activities and/or in addressing the social issues and functions of economic development within our "Underprivileged African Communities."
To this resolve:
The Social Economic Enterprises Network will conduct research and economic development initiatives around four areas of study to identify, educate, and provide financial support for young social entrepreneurs from "Underprivileged African Communities."
- Social Entrepreneurship (social problems solving, social purpose businesses, social investments);
- Urban Entrepreneurship (wealth creation, business development, community entrepreneurship, job creation);
- Economic Development (urban institutions and development, economic development and emerging economies);
- International Entrepreneurship (institutional and entrepreneurial activity in developing nations, entrepreneurship towards economic development);
