1. We supported the St. Jean Bosco Centre, a technical and vocational training school in Mali, to plan and set up three profitable social enterprises: electrical installation, welding, and room rental for meetings and conferences. This helped the centre to move away from being fully reliant on grants, and put them on the path of sustainable income generation.
2 . We worked with Save The Children to support under-resourced Migrant Learning Centres on the Thai-Myanmar border to develop sustainable income generation activities such as an organic egg business and a mushroom farm to supplement donor-funding.
3. We assisted the Escuela Técnica Vocacional Dr. Stephen Youngberg in Honduras to transform several of its technical programmes into fully functional social enterprises. With our support, the technical centre went from being 30% to 92% self-sufficient in 3 years.
