—   SOCIAL ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT   —

Social Enterprise Development (SED) has become increasingly important.

  • It creates opportunities for social pensioners to generate additional monthly income for themselves and their families, and for social cohesion
  • It generates sustainable income for NOAH. An NPO’s ability to generate its own income has not only become necessary, but critical in a tough fiscal environment.
  • It changes perceptions in an ’anti-ageing’ world. Few people have a positive view on ageing and even less believe that social pensioners are able to make a contribution to society, let alone the economy. SED debunks this myth by helping social pensioners turn their lives around through income generation.
