As a business professional and community member, Hanane Bekhallouk firmly believes that the path to true and long-lasting positive change will be paved through social entrepreneurship, rather than philanthropy. Countless studies have demonstrated that a pure charity system does not work; their organization systems are often poor, their limited budgets inadequate to attract top talents, and their overall financial impacts fleeting. Social entrepreneurship, by contrast, stands as a sustainable and effective means to enact lasting positive change in our communities.
