Social entrepreneur

Lillian Masebenza

“Greed has to be eradicated for a win-win social change to take place. Social entrepreneurship is about empowering others so they can improve their lives. It is about maximising the power of the collective for the benefit of all involved.”

Sixty-three-year-old Lillian Masebenza is the founder of Mhani Gingi, a social entrepreneurial network that helps disadvantaged people to build businesses. She won an Ashoka Fellowship for pioneering her innovative, replicable model.
