The Entrepreneurial Orphanage: The World Is Their Oyster Mushroom How an orphanage in Guatemala is starting some unusual businesses to support their work. Orphanages are often assumed to be a special case which justify an old-fashioned approach to charity - surviving on hand-outs because they can't support themselves any other way. It's an assumption which Ties to the World founder Ibis Schlesinger is challenging at the Hogar Xavier in Guatemala. "With the same amount of funds required to support an orphanage for one year," she notes, "we can create a business and assist the orphanage to become self-sufficient for many years to come." Displaying a true flair for entrepreneurship Ties to the World is busy putting together an eclectic mix of small businesses which will support the future costs of the orphanage. From art sales, to a store for used goods, to a local bakery; when they see a niche in the market, they're ready to make it work for the children they care for. A great example of this is their oyster mushroom farm. What started as a tasty way to provide an extra source of protein for their children is slowly being transformed into an additional source of income for the orphanage. Getting the conditions just right for mushroom farming takes a little practice, but because of this it can be a highly profitable activity that's often overlooked in many developing countries. And because it's a business which can be started on a small scale, even schools with little available space can have a go - that's one of the real advantages the fungus business, you don't need mush-room for it! Prestigious Prizes: Awards Hat Trick for Paraguay Partner Financially Sustainable School for Rural Entrepreneurs scoops three international prizes. The San Francisco School for Rural Entrepreneurs in Paraguay has had an incredible few months receiving much deserved international recognition from some leading names in the international development, education and social enterprise sectors. November saw the Fundación Paraguaya receive the Templeton Freedom Award Prize for Social Entrepreneurship for its Self-Sufficient Agricultural School, closely followed by the World Innovation Summit on Education (WISE) Award for Sustainability. And, just when it looked like things couldn't get any better, January brought the Global Development Network 'Most Innovative Development Project Award'. "This is an immensely proud time for us." said Martin Burt, Executive Director of Fundación Paraguaya and Teach A Man To Fish, "We have shown that it is possible to create Financially Sustainable School which transforms the outcomes for poor rural youth. The challenge now is to show this can be done in any country where there is need - but we love a challenge!"

But the story is a little different at the Centre for Alternative Agricultural Education in Tarairi, Bolivia, because it's a milestone moment for a school which is trying to do something more than just teach - it aims to transform outcomes for poor rural youth, to help them lift themselves out of poverty. After three years of study these fresh graduates will have the same high school qualification as their peers at other schools, the "Técnico Medio en Gestión Agropecuaria". The difference however is that these students have not only learned the theory of milk production, but even more important, how to make money running a dairy business. This is because, for these same three years, they have been learning the skills demanded by the curriculum within a fully functioning and profitable dairy business owned and run by the school. It may be small today, but as the school grows its class sizes it will benefit more students every year. For them this is not a numbers game, it is about creating impact - and with a business plan for financial sustainability in hand they can be confident that growth will not mean compromising the quality of education they're committed to deliver.

This year a record number of 23 country prizes of $1,000 will be awarded, with a further 5 organizations receiving commendations for their excellent work. We hope through these awards to show that Africa is a continent of hope with much to be proud of.

The Entrepreneurial Orphanage: The World Is Their Oyster Mushroom

How an orphanage in Guatemala is starting some unusual businesses to support their work.

Orphanages are often assumed to be a special case which justify an old-fashioned approach to charity - surviving on hand-outs because they can't support themselves any other way.

It's an assumption which Ties to the World founder Ibis Schlesinger is challenging at the Hogar Xavier in Guatemala. "With the same amount of funds required to support an orphanage for one year," she notes, "we can create a business and assist the orphanage to become self-sufficient for many years to come."
