Social entrepreneurship

Our team wants to get involved in the wonderful experience that is social entrepreneurship in the Philippines. Our aim is to create a social enterprise within three years in the country.

The project would be focused on women living in poverty in rural areas. Our aim comes from the following observation: about 22% of the population lives below the poverty line, which represents one person out of five. In order to solve that problem, Filipinos, and especially women, emigrate in order to find some work. They move away from their families and often work in harsh conditions. We wish to focus on their professional insertion while valuing a traditional craftsmanship.

Internship offer:

For that project, we are looking for a motivated student interested in social entrepreneurship to join us in that adventure!
