The seminar began in time and people from under developed areas around Bahawalpur were welcomed to attend the seminar.
Objectives of this seminar were to inspire the people towards a unique lifestyle and also to let people think about business or produce resources for themselves. People were not well familiar with the term social entrepreneurship so the team used some example to clarify the idea and tried to make their mind clear about it. They urged them to take part in this seminar and explained them that the term social entrepreneurship and peace making are related to each other and also that the term social entrepreneurship not only helps people economically but it also helps them morally as it will also decrease social evils like crime, theft etc.
The people who took part in the seminar showed passion towards the welfare of society as well. Everyone had a different opinion about social entrepreneurship and it seemed that everyone wanted to work for the betterment of the country. Overall the seminar had a positive effect on them and changed their thinking. They showed a great passion for peacebuilding and prosperity of country.
