We have started the social part of our work. This is great news. We are pretty proud of it, and we hope that through this first baby step, we will do our share in building and renovating our broken social system.
We are many.
The social enterprises movement is wide, growing and complex. There are so many of us, cooperatives, non-profits, mutuals, private business working for the society. Urban Care is just a droplet in that ocean. And we want to be a significant droplet. As we want to work with the financial means and the human power we generate, we have to accept that it will be slow, yet steady.
After 2 years of work, our company is now generating just enough profit to allow us to allocate a part of our resources supporting others. Our big plan remains to set up low-cost, high-quality family care clinics. It will probably take an extra 2 years before we accumulate the necessary capital to start it up. We need 200,000 USD. So, we have decided not to wait. Hence, the social work of Urban Care, under the label Urban Care Active, is starting now. We have identified a first NGO that we will support. We will let you know more about this excellent organization in a few days. As well, we will soon have a dedicated section to this work, under www.urbancareactive.org . Stay tuned.
You can’t imagine how happy we are getting real, at last. Setting up a social enterprise is a long-term job. And now, we can start harvesting.
