The Social Entrepreneur

Read this story on the changing face of NGOs and a new breed of people called ‘Social entrepreneurs’. Two organizations I know that have allowed corporate practices into the NGO structure and are doing a very good job– Dhriti and Akshara foundation.The reason I think this is a good thing because it signals an end to the NGO as an isolative and primarily leftist outgrowth. The other reason that this is positive is because it makes the term ‘corporate social responsibility’ seem more plausible.
