KA1 training course in Avilla, Spain

5-13. December. 2015

Project description

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” . Reflecting on the quote above, we realized the strength of social entrepreneurship, which is using the method of entrepreneurship in bringing innovative solutions on social problems through “teaching how to fish” instead of “giving fishes”.


Firstly, we organize this project to promote value of using entrepreneurship approach for social problems, and to encourage non-governmental organization to use this model to apply on the issues they are working on.


Secondly, through the training we want to realize the entrepreneurial potential of young people and to encourage them to use the potential in bringing positive impact.


The training course with the elements of study visit aims to promote entrepreneurship approach for bringing social change, to make young people learn from the context of social entrepreneurship in Spain, and to equip them with competencies and tools needed for initiating social venture ideas in their communities. Participants will be visiting entrepreneurial organizations, hosting interesting guest speakers and in an informal way learning about public speaking, business models, market research and creativity. We believe that young people have an important role in addressing social problems in their communities and if they are empowered they can act as change agents in their societies. We want to pass this tool to the young leaders and promote it for bringing a social change
