C3 Social Enterprise Accelerator

This program enables Oman's emerging social entrepreneurs to become active agents of positive social change. Hundreds of business professionals are mobilized to help social enterprises become financially sustainable and demonstrate positive impact on society. This mobilizes experienced business professionals to share their knowledge on a voluntary basis. We match professionals with social enterprises taking into consideration skills, interests and availability. With coaching and consultancy, the program helps social enterprises clarify their needs into short-term, discrete projects giving professionals a clear time commitment. Social enterprises are guided through a step-by step process to ensure success and long-term social impact.

Knowledge Ambassadors

This leading volunteer initiative in the Sultanate has so far impacted over 5,000 participants. The network of Knowledge Ambassadors has also elevated the role of the professional as a change agent in the country spreading their know-how to benefit segments of the community and being recognized for their community role. The focus of the program has been serving the youth across colleges and universities to help bridge the gap between academia and industry, along with enabling the flow of knowledge transfer nation-wide. With exchanged knowledge, capacity is built as a knowledge society and a foundation is empowered for social progress.
