Social Entrepreneurship is a process that enables citizens to do that.” Azadeh Tajdar (Co-founder/Director, ofShetab, Center for Business & Social Innovation in Kabul, Afghanistan) This quote captures the essence underlying the motivation of the founders of the newly formed Social Entrepreneurs Association Malta.

The Association aims to bring together like-minded organizations, companies and people who believe that social entrepreneurship in Malta has huge potential and who are ready to participate in the development and strengthening of the sector. Specifically, the association will embark on a number of projects and initiatives aimed at fostering knowledge about local and global social issues;advocating for the interests of the sector at local, regional and national levels; improving the capacity of members; informing society about social entrepreneurship; and any other activities which are ancillary, incidental or conducive to the attainment of the above objectives.
