http://www.greenshootsfoundation.org">Green Shoots Foundation has launched these initiatives in the Philippines and in Cambodia, in partnership with very well established not-for-profit local implementation partners.
In the Philippines, our partner is Gawad Kalinga (GK) and the FASE project is focussed on “The Enchanted Farm” and its social innovation laboratory in order to bring them to the next development stage.
The Enchanted Farm leads the way in GK’s focus on creating wealth to end poverty. The Enchanted Farm is a rapidly growing social entrepreneurship initiative focused on creating a model for sustainable development, incorporating elements of social business and innovation, social tourism and social education. Through our
investments, GK is holistically addressing the problems of poverty using a multi-sectoral approach, creating shared value and wealth that trickles down to those at the base of the pyramid.
We are looking for individuals to provide Food & Agriculture (F&A) technical assistance to farming communities and to the incubation of Social Enterprises (mainly F&A based). Individuals who are motivated and enthusiastic individuals who can display a willingness to commit to living in rural areas and help develop, scale up and replicate the Enchanted Farm business hub in 24 more sites.
This is not an outreach or short-term livelihood programme in a remote rural area. We are proactively identifying high-impact models for creating social change and then facilitating their scaling up and replication all over the Philippines.
