Angello and SEAF have extensive first-hand experience of the shocking needs facing young unemployed people in Eastern Europe. As inward investors over several decades we believe the time now is right to expand on our forerunner projects in this space and, in addition, create a game-changing, compassionate, systemic, scalable, and sustainable model that gets to the root of this problem.
This has led to the creation of the ‘Good Business’ model. This model draws on the unique ability of business to identify and tackle relevant social issues within their own local contexts. A youth employment training and placement programme will act as a flagship programme but the model is built on supporting the local business communities to identify the issues and solutions themselves and then acting as a facilitator. The model draws on the language and ethos of Corporate Social Responsibility to create communities of action.
Angello will launch in 3 projects over the next twelve months with an initial focus on Eastern Europe.
Angello’s first project will be launched in the poorest country in Europe, Moldova. Moldova is a country that our team has extensive experience in and they have identified many great opportunities for businesses to contribute to Moldovan society.
Angello’s second and third projects will be in Albania and Macedonia. These countries have been selected because they are countries where the need for social transformation, particularly in relation to youth employment. This awareness of need has been overlaid against our ability to deliver through local partners and the strength of our local networks.
