Celebrating Global Changemakers: SIF’s Young Social Entrepreneurs

“The YSE programme has connected us to friends who are all striving towards the common goal of social good,” shared Debra Lam, 20, of Society Staples, one of the four winning teams at SIF’s Young Social Entrepreneurs: Pitching for Change, last Saturday. “Nothing has come close to the mentorship and networks we have gained through the programme, in terms of the resources, dedication and time. We’re honoured to be part of a network of young global change agents who are making friends for a better world.”
