Providing Spaces for Businesses to Operate from in Cape York. Aurukun Success Story. In October 2011 My Pathway were asked to write an Indigenous Employment Program (IEP) for DEEWR to prepare for the Housing roll out in Aurukun.

Aurukun Success Story

This request was initiated by DEEWR because of the enormous success the MY Pathway had managing a similar IEP around construction on Mer island previously. The model developed, training and support provided around the Mer Island project resulted in maximising employment outcomes for the community in that IEP project. These outcomes transcend fu rther to benefit the whole community through the active engagement of the locals. This project also demonstrated the group’s capacity to be able to engage and pull a community together working with all stake holders within an often complicated community structure while dealing with different clan groups and job seekers that face multiple barriers to employment and with little or no work history.

Home. Rare Earth Foundation. Turning Ideas into Reality At the Rare Earth Foundation we have integrated a new way of thinking to organisational sustainability.

Rare Earth Foundation

Using a corporate model for sustainability, we have moved away from the traditional charitable model that relies heavily on government funding, to social enterprise. And in late 2011, Rare Earth Oils was created. Rare Earth Oils works with Aboriginal elders, youth and family groups to hand-harvest essential oils from the wild to create a range of natural, Australian, ethically produced products. Our goal is to create a robust social enterprise that creates sustainability for the Rare Earth Foundation whilst providing business support and mentoring for Aboriginal entrepreneurs and family groups.

Remote Jobs and Communities Program

The design of the RJCP reflects the Government’s view that everyone who can work should work.

Those who cannot get a job participate in meaningful activities that contribute to their communities as well as making them more work ready. Social Enterprise Network for NZ.

Focus: Microfinance, Rural DevelopmentGeographic Area of Impact: IndiaModel: Social BusinessRecognition: Schwab Fellow of the World Economic Forum Background While the concept of microfinance institutions (MFIs) spread rapidly in neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh and Indonesia, India had a slower start. Until the early 1990s banks were nationalized and mandated to reach the poor with subsidized loans. While the intention was laudable, in practice loans to the rural poor by the banking sector were riddled with corruption and red tape, limiting what could have been a powerful economic intervention for social change. In 1992 India started to reform its banking system to restore financial health, and as a result the number of small loans going to rural areas decreased rapidly, since they were less profitable.

Transforming Rural India Through Agricultural Innovation - Vijay Govindarajan. By Vijay Govindarajan | 8:00 AM February 21, 2014 With a majority of its population living in villages, rural poverty is a major problem in India.

Transforming Rural India Through Agricultural Innovation - Vijay Govindarajan

The disparity between the urban and rural incomes is also on the rise. This leads to migration to urban areas resulting in urban blight as well. Therefore addressing the problem of rural poverty assumes urgency. On my last trip to India, I witnessed an innovation experiment, National Agro Foundation (NAF), that addresses this wicked problem.

Social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship is the process of pursuing innovative solutions to social problems. More specifically, social entrepreneurs adopt a mission to create and sustain social value.

They pursue opportunities to serve this mission, while continuously adapting and learning. They draw upon appropriate thinking in both the business and nonprofit worlds and operate in all kinds of organizations: large and small; new and old; religious and secular; nonprofit, for-profit, and hybrid.[1] Business entrepreneurs typically measure performance in profit and return, but social entrepreneurs also take into account a positive return to society.

The latest “closing the gap” report is full of the usual glossy pictures of happy people and propaganda on how much the government is doing for indigenous Australians — a list of programs and dollar inputs, little about outcomes. Much of the media noise last week has been about “rivers of grog”, to divert attention from the unfortunately slow, even negative, progress in closing the six headline gaps nominated by the Rudd government in 2008. Census data that allow measurement of change between 2006 and 2011 are hard to find in the report that was ostensibly designed to hold the government of the day accountable. The gap that one would think is easiest to measure with any certainty is the employment gap. The policy aim here is to reduce the difference in the employment to population ratio of those aged 15 to 64 years (the number employed as a percentage of those of working age) by 50% in 10 years.

Employment data from the 2011 census were released on October 31. Engaging Individuals in Real Economy. Barefoot College. What is a social business? Social Business vs. Social Enterprise.
