Orpe Human Rights' Model of Ending Poverty Through Social Enterprise
Our Socil Entreprise Poverty Alleviation Approach
The program of social enterprise at the Orpe Human Rights Advocates is designed for both business and social goals. Our main purpose is to promote, encourage, and assist in effecting positive change in the lives or social status of homeless or at risk-homelessness individuals, veterans, or low-income families. The program aims to transform homeless individuals, veterans, and low-income families from the status of poverty or low-income to the status of sufficient income. Social enterprise programs at Orpe Human Rights Advocates are driven by the idea of collecting working capital through the fundraising process and invest these funds into lucrative businesses. The major part of task forces associated with each social enterprise project will be composed of trained people from homelessness, veterans, and low-income families. Under this program category, wages will be based on the social-economic trends and sufficient income lifestyle, but not on the services rendered. Under this model, profits will be serving first to fulfill the basic needs expected to move employees' power of purchase into similar conditions as those of sufficient income families, but not based on services rendered.
While the goal of all business aims towards making profits to be shared with the shareholders, the Orpe Human Rights Advocates' Model further the empowerment of the lifestyle of the employee's members of a given segment of the social enterprise model. Knowing that employees of the social enterprise model of the Orpe Human Rights Advocates are composed of trained people from either homeless, veterans, or low-income families.
Orpe Human Rights Social Enterprise Model presents three benefits for the government: 1) the model will be eliminating homelessness among veterans, and among low-income individuals, and families; 2) Orpe Human Rights Advocates Model will reduce US citizens to be dependent on welfare and social services as the status of homeless, veterans, low-income families will be transformed from the low-income status to the status of sufficient income; and 3) Orpe Human Rights Advocates Model is expected to revamp the Maryland economy as the social enterprise will increase the power of purchase in Maryland household. This model can be applied at the local, regional, and national levels.
Our goal at Orpe Human Rights Advocates is to create our own financial capability to avoid or reduce dependency on philanthropy, grant money, donations of the federal programs, and reach the level in which we can sustain ourselves over the long term. One of our goals is to strive for the expansion by replicating the model to other communities to generate more impact. As a hybrid model, we'll be able to control the curriculum and funding of the programs.
Our vision is designed in such that greater impact directly correlates to a great profit. Investors and business partners today want to know that the companies they choose are doing more than just providing a product or services. They look for companies that are doing good. They will feel a special connection to companies whose values align with their own.
