CBD Social Enterprise:
CBD Social Enterprise is an innovative initiative to serve the needs of the community for social, economic and ecological balance. Essentially, this is a consulting program designed for youth and adults to initiate & develop a "Social Enterprise". Here, initially, through a step-by-step process, the consultant helps the entrepreneurs to focus on their capacities, talents & aspirations. The program continues by systematically assessing the needs of the community, developing the necessary skills, devising a plan of action and gradual implementation and reflection. 

The aim of the program is to create a better awareness of the role that the individuals can play as agents of change in advancing social, economic and ecological balance in global development processes and building the foundation for a successful and meaningful life. The program also focuses on personal development and how serving the social needs can help us to increase our understanding of self and building confidence in our capacity to achieve our vision. The fundamental notion in creating a social enterprise is that ..... success begins when you start serving the community.
