In a nutshell, the purpose of social entrepreneurship is to find creative solutions to social, cultural and environmental issues through a variety of methods.

#Mum of three, Carren, started Lagan's Foundation after the very sad passing of her daughter Lagan, due to a heart defect in 2011. Days, weeks and months of stress, worry and fatigue gave Carren the motivation to get things started. With the assistance of the other trustees and board members, it all became a reality.
