Commitment to Action

Educating Youth in Social Entrepreneurship

Commitment by

Trust for Development Studies and Practices

In 2011, the Trust for Development Studies and Practices - Pakistan (TDSP) committed to engage 200 young people in a rigorous social entrepreneurship training program. This four-year, multi-phase model accommodates young, vulnerable, and poorly educated people at varying steps in their educational paths, from completely illiterate to literate, and aims to transition this vulnerable population into individuals who will serve as positive agents of change in their communities. The commitment will consist of a program of literate, semi-literate and illiterate Pakistani youths of 9-19 years, which will focus on literacy, life skills, civic education, basic economic concepts, social trends, and activism. This program will feed into a second, advanced level which will train youth of 21-35 in social entrepreneurship, and assist them to develop and launch their own initiatives.
