Social Impact Project for Support for Creating a Social Enterprise Business Plan
Project Description and Impact
Since 2007, THE YCDP is involved in finding a solution to support young people, local marginalized changemakers and social entrepreneurs, international volunteers and local partners. We have been working to set up a well established organization but we still don't have any revenue stream to fund our operations and management.
THE YCDP would like to create a social enterprise based on farming. This aims cultivating and selling crops to generate revenues to sustain our operations and management.
We would like to work on this project with an Experteer who is experienced in business planning and startups.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
Opportunity to practice human-centered design in taking part to non-profit operations that meet our organization's/ the community's needs. Gain hands on experience with a grassroots no-profits/ social enterprise.
This is a good opportunity for the Experteer to experience Africa. We could guide you to experience Africa and particularly a West-African country called TOGO with its sandy Atlantic coast, its local way of life, local meals, local clothing. Meet local people and live as simple as walk to shop at the community local markets.
Free-time activities could be organized like hiking sports, swimming or museum, zoo, African crafts and folk discovery to put you at the heart of our culture. If you decide to discover the countryside and natural parks and zoo, the villages of the hinterland, we could help you arrange it… surely you will love the rural mountains regions and their landscape and small waterfalls: ready for a trek experience? It is possible too.
Evening relaxation would be a particular moment to let away the stress of the working day and to build friendship, a privileged moment to discuss with others about what matters to you... and if you like it why not a Yoga class for beginners (an exchange or simple introducing to the yoga and practicing some positions for beginners), or would you prefer a local native language study such as Ewe? It is up to you, you are welcome to our country Togo.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
