Celebrating entrepreneurs who create social, environmental and economic values
Surya Nepal had recently announced the call for nominations and proposal for the ‘Asha Social Entrepreneurship Award 2012’ to recognise Nepali social entrepreneurs based on the definition of Social Enterprise = Impact + Sustainability (Profit).
Surya Nepal had received 84 applications from 29 districts and has shortlisted 27 entrepreneurs as semi finalists. The selection panel had 11 jury members and two advisers.
Last year, five winners were recognised with the award for their achievements, and encouraging others to follow their examples of individuals creating social, environmental and economic impact.
The winners last year were Ram Sapkota from Mountain Delights Treks and Expeditions and Tukee Nepal Society, Sabita Maharjan from Kirtipur Hosiery Industries, Shyam Badan Yadav from Kalash Milk Industry, Vijaya Development Resource Centre and Chhahari Services.
