Annual Review FY20
It is difficult to recall what the world looked like before COVID-19. It was a world of economic optimism, but also one needs to address mounting, great challenges related to climate change, inequality, and livelihoods. Besides dealing a devastating blow to the global economy, the pandemic has exacerbated every one of these tensions.
At IKEA Social Entrepreneurship, we have fortunately been able to continue supporting our existing partners, developing new programmes and partnerships. And, in doing that, scaling up our support to social entrepreneurs, and the people they assist, through the pandemic.
