Our Story

Rational behind Sworld

The Inspiration Behind Sworld Social Enterprise

Our story began with a passionate advocate for social impact and research, Aimee Ghanem. She recognized the global need for social impact resources and support, and thus, formulated a platform to provide valuable insights, expertise, and resources for students, professionals, activists, volunteers, and other change-makers across various fields.

Sworld was born from this dedication, and we continue to pursue our mission to empower individuals and organizations to make a positive impact on society.

Our Vision
