“We continue to build the capacity of youth and women’s clubs to do reporting via social media and also use MPAISA for making volunteer contribution via data usage and recharge for easy reporting and more focus on project implementation,” said Ms Devi.

“Social entrepreneurs and income generation is at the forefront of foundation. This not only addresses the socio economic gap but also addresses social issues holistically.

“Establishment of an enterprise with the aim of solving social problems and or effecting social change through ‘small-scale projects run by group social entrepreneurs’ are encouraged

“Driving social innovation and transformation in the communities are now linked to technology for effective reporting and higher rate of return,” she said.
