Co-founder of Social Enterprise Lanka, Eranda Ginige said “We are trying to make a huge step change in how we address social and environmental issues in Sri Lanka. But we can’t do this alone. That’s why we need likeminded partners who believe in our vision for this country. We are very pleased to partner with PR Wire as we know they strongly believe in sustainability. We invite all individuals and companies interested in developing social entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka to partner with Social Enterprise Lanka.”
He further added, “Social Enterprise sector in Sri Lanka is in its early stages of development. We estimate there are at least 1,000 entities in Sri Lanka which can be recognised as social enterprises. Although a few companies identify themselves as social enterprises, many others do not even know they may be running a social enterprise. Most social enterprises are at start-up stage, while more and more charities are being transformed into social enterprises”.
