About the programme

East Africa Social Enterprise is a project designed to support underserved populations to access social protection, health, education and jobs, and in doing so help foster inclusive and sustainable growth for human development.

More specifically, the project strives to promote and strengthen an evidence-based social enterprise approach in addressing these development priorities in East Africa, notably in Ethiopia and Kenya. 

The project is part of the British Council’s Global Social Enterprise programme which is implemented currently in 28 countries across four continents. The programme supports social enterprises to address social and environmental challenges and improve people's lives in our communities and societies. It promotes positive social change, inclusive growth and sustainable development while sharing learning and building trust between the UK and other countries.

Support for Social Enterprise in East Africa is a two-year project financed by the European Union and implemented by the British Council.
