Sustainability and Impact Global Series (4): Inspiring and building schools to break the poverty trap Uganda and Nepal

Nova SBE innovating in the teaching of impact and sustainability!  


From climate change, to poverty or gender inequality, enterprises and businesses are now asked to walk the talk- but what can be done? What is being done? The Grad students of Prof. Filipe Alfaiate course “Leading Impact Enterprises in International Development”,  designed and developed podcasts as their final assignment where they applied the course’s content - and the best podcasts are at the centre of this Sustainability and Impact Global Series!  

This first season has eight exciting episodes exploring how some enterprises in Africa are working towards impact and sustainability. We will look into the tools they use, the challenges they face, how they adapt their pricing, marketing, distribution to commercially reach a growing market of more than 2,5 billion people - with a positive impact!

Education and its inspiring founders and how they build schools to tackle the source of poverty in impoverished communities in Uganda and Nepal. Wanting to provide every child with a fair chance in life no matter, this enterprise builds local partnerships at bottom of the pyramid. What are the limits, challenges and opportunities lying ahead? The research and production of this episode were done by Sarah Erhard, Lucie Kerangueven, Julia Hermann, Maike Carolin Henkel, Moritz Benedikt Witte -with the support from Prof. Filipe Alfaiate and the TA Daniela Afonso.
