This is where we publish the real life, ‘learning by doing’stories about people making a difference in their communities around the world.

Many of the stories come from GLI Networkers. Often they provide personal insights into the motivation and drive behind the social projects described – why they started, what they are doing and how they are doing it.

If you have a great story about what you or your project is doing – or about someone you know – write and tell us about it – email

Many social entrepreneurial projects tackle more than one social ‘problem’ at once so many projects are listed under more than one Category and some may also be listed under more than one country too.
