Merry-go-round and other Social Entrepreneurship examples from Africa in the model of the Economy of Communion

This will be a presentation and panel discussion on social entrepreneurship examples from Kenya and Africa which exemplify the values of Economy of Communion, including the traditional merry-go-round model, a dairy co-operative from the Bomet area, and the now-famous example of Mazuri beads. The point of this presentation is to encourage discussion and investigation of unique African models of social entrepreneurship which can help inform the Economy of Communion movement, as well as Jesuit Social Entrepreneurship studies and projects.
