South Africa is known to have benefited from the active society of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) who volunteered to resolve community development problems associated with the neglect of the previous Apartheid Government. However, post-1994 several NGOs disappeared as more and more people opted for business opportunities that came with our young democracy. We are now where we were before. There is a need for more social entrepreneurs and NGOs to tackle the problems of poverty, unemployment, and inequality. Some private companies have established Foundations and Corporate Social Investments (CSI) Programmes to respond to these challenges. We would like to bring these practitioners and organizations together to discuss the trends in this important sector of our society. We encourage professionals and companies to present case studies and insights to develop each other. Some institutions of learning have introduced Social Entrepreneurship Programmes to equip practitioners with knowledge to grow and professionalize the sector. This is a welcomed development and is encouraged. Our Forum pledges to continue supporting such initiatives.
