A social enterprise: Work for impact
VolunTeach Peru does not receive donations or government funding. On the contrary, profits are achieved through transparent hard work delivered in schools, the planning and execution of programmes, projects, ELT trainings and consultancy, as it is displayed on our website.
The presence of anglophone speakers in our Teaching Assistantship Programmes makes us unique. They contribute with Peruvian Teachers of English and pupils to learn English first hand whilst they can learn about other cultures. Certainly, our programmes are more popular in private schools –still distant to private education in developed countries-.
Our commitment with the affiliated universities abroad implies that we allocate their students and graduates in safe and nice areas so we can guarantee safety standards to the best of our knowledge and reduce risks to the maximum.
VolunTeach Peru is an educational social enterprise. It is important to recognize a business model can also create a positive impact in our own community or country by working hard and independently for them.
“Meanwhile, social entrepreneurs are developing innovative business models that blend traditional capitalism with solutions that address the long-term needs of our planet. They are tackling chronic social problems, ranging from healthcare delivery in sub-Saharan Africa to agricultural transformation in East Asia and public-school funding in the United States. Social entrepreneurs are working in close collaboration with local communities, incubating groundbreaking (and often lifesaving) innovations; modeling synergistic partnerships with governments, companies, and traditional charities; and building business models that deploy technology and enable networking to create wins for investors and clients alike. “Social entrepreneurs are mad scientists in the lab,” says Pamela Hartigan, director of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University. “They’re harbingers of new ways of doing business.”
