Introducing Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise Academy Africa

Social enterprise is an international movement characterised by organisations that trade to earn income, but also achieve social and environmental benefits. Because of this, social enterprise is becoming increasingly popular in South Africa as a way to create positive social impact without reliance on donor income.
This practical programme will introduce you to the wide range of income-generation models used by successful social enterprises around the world. It will also provide you with the space and time to reflect on how to implement these best practice models in your own organisation.
