What is a social enterprise?

A social enterprise is an organisation that applies commercial strategies to maximise improvements in human and environmental well-being – this often includes maximising social impact rather than profits for external shareholders.

Jeenee Mobile is committed to our core purpose of helping everyone to live the lives of their choosing with the assistance of mobile technology. We do this through donating services via our Make a Difference Program and by partnering with service providers and other organisations to develop and deliver new and affordable products that are specifically targeted to meeting the needs of their clients.

Why change from a not for profit?

To continue with the ambitious plans of assisting everyone, irrespective of individual need, capability or capacity to live the lives of their choosing with the assistance of mobile technology, Jeenee Mobile needed to raise more money. The corporate structure of a not-for-profit prevented the ability of raising this money through investors. Therefore the decision was taken to form Jeenee Communications as a proprietary limited company with equity shareholders contributing the money needed to continue our journey. Our objectives remain the same, and our constitution requires that a minimum percentage of our surpluses are returned to our core purpose.
