Established in 2014, The Social Co. was set up by 5 passionate individuals who felt that young people were important catalysts in creating social impact.
Friends for more than 10 years, Rebekah and Cheryl decided to work on a project together - not knowing exactly how that would look like. Determined to create projects that were not only impactful, but sustainable as well, they rallied a group of their friends to brainstorm on innovative ways to involve youths in giving back to the community. This team was the result of that "hackathon" session.
