Christina Yeo

“It’s great to make a difference and make money while having a positive social impact and growing a business!”

Christina stays rooted to why the Social Enterprise mechanism is effective as these businesses place core importance in addressing social goodness for the people and especially even more so for the community of people who are less privileged or underserved.  

Having worked with leading companies who walk the talk in embedding a ‘social mission’ in their business operations, she sees how these leaders make it happen by empowering people, enabling a sense of purpose, and enabling lives and livelihood. Delivering business with a social impact is the driver to support and sustain our diverse ecosystem socially, economically and environmentally. Thus, we as a global society will all benefit to live better, live safer, and live with purposeful intention throughout every season!

 

 

 

Huiyi Sim

“It is an SE’s mission to provide support to the less unprivileged and underserved.”

Living with cerebral palsy, Huiyi is self-motivated and resilient when faced with challenges. She believes that if each person does their part in giving back to the community, it will make a great difference to those in need.

 

 

 

Red Pioquinto

“SEs - an innovative way of building a business by lifting the underserved.”

With a background in the behavioural and social sciences, Red had been immersed in the experiences of the marginalized sector. From counselling palliative care patients to listening to the struggles of indigenous communities, and getting involved with research on mental and public health, these experiences have led her to be an advocate for social issues and activism. She believes that with proper systems in place and with the help of social enterprises, gaps towards provided access to the underserved can be filled.

 

 

 

Almira Zaskya

“There is a strong movement rising in socially and environmentally conscious products because the public is demanding a change. I believe that small actions, multiplied by many people, can make a genuine difference in the world.” - Colleen Clines, The Anchal Project

Almira believes in doing good and aspires to make a better world in every little thing she does. With a communication and international relations background, she is motivated to use this knowledge in contributing to the community for the greater good.

She has experience in handling events within a multinational company and with international-level events like the Asian Games 2018. She loves social work as she was active in the university club for social activities and always interested in having experiences as well as challenges to work with foreigners in an international environment to benefits society, the economy, and/or the environment in various ways.
