3 When does your project start?
The Social Enterprise Project (SEP) idea was born in 2013, when I visited Jerash Camp in Jordan. Everywhere I looked I saw people taking impossible strides just to earn the bare minimum. Everyone I had the opportunity to speak with, told stories steeped in history, geography, identity, resilience, and survival. I was inspired by these stories to try to generate a positive social impact within refugee communities. When SEP Jordan was first officially established in 2014, we were the first private company to ever set up in Jerash Camp and work with the camp residents as colleagues, on a peer-to-peer
level.
4 Have any of your employees asked you to join any foundation or are they directly involved?
Employees are all involved in social impact activities which are free to the refugee camp community
