This interactive course will include practical exercises for you to start experimenting with your ideas. The course will be divided into five chapters:

Chapter 1: Finding yourself

Here, we will explore our personal strengths and skills, which will help us define the type of project we want to create.

Chapter 2: Picking a cause

Do you already know which cause you would like to work on? Here we will explore different global causes and how to understand the urgency of each one of them. We will also discuss the best strategies to do research and collect data about our cause.

Chapter 3: Making life-changing choices

Now you know the problem you would like to fix. During this chapter you will be guided through the process of building your project, and how to develop solutions.

Chapter 4: Embracing the journey

The beginning of a social entrepreneurial journey can be challenging, so we will discuss tips and tools you can use to facilitate your progress.

Chapter 5: Making it sustainable

Like any business, non-profit and social impact projects must also be concerned about their sustainability for the future. Here we will discuss the different possibilities for making a sustainable project, and how to pick what works best for you.

All lectures will be recorded, and you will have access to the recording of the classes until one month after the training is over.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Sara's bio:

Hi, I am Sara Pestana. I am a Social Entrepreneur from Porto, Portugal, with a master’s degree in psychology, specializing in psychological interventions, education, and human development.

I started my career in Portugal working and volunteering with different vulnerable populations, such as children, youth, and their families, from minority backgrounds; children in residential childcare; and women survivors of human trafficking.

My passion for working with people and contributing to a world where everyone’s rights are respected led me to focus on interventions that prevent marginalization, stigmatization, and discrimination against individuals.

After moving to Norway in 2018, I continued my work of empowering and connecting people through workshops, training, and support groups, with a bigger focus on women and migrants.

In 2020 I founded Humans for Humans, an NGO that focuses on mental health and human trafficking, to contribute to improving services provided in this field and to help make mental health services accessible to all.
