Supporting Social Entrepreneurs During the Pandemic
The COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs was launched to support social entrepreneurs from around the world during the crisis and its aftermath, as this sector has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Social entrepreneurs have played a critical role during the crisis, helping to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic in their communities. They’ve acted as frontline responders, providing inclusive, sustainable, and fair solutions to the challenges posed by the global emergency.
Today, their role is more important than ever, as they work to develop new sustainable models for building a more inclusive economy.
Fundación Avina is part of this alliance, along with 82 other members, which currently supports more than 50,000 social entrepreneurs around the world. Avina also subscribes to the Alliance’s COVID Social Enterprise Action Agenda, which aims to mobilize the recognition, resources, and actions required for social entrepreneurs to respond effectively to the effects of the pandemic.
