Introduction
In a situation where the prevailing attitudes of young people are to wait for family connections, charity or government actions and with no existing culture of entrepreneurship, Asma is introducing a cultural shift in which young people take solving social problems in their own hands. She is breeding a new field through creating an enabling environment supportive for social enterprises.
