A social enterprise, simply harnessing business skills and markets to achieve social and/or environmental objectives.

What social enterprises have in common is a commitment to generating most of their income by selling goods and services, rather than through grants and donations, and reinvesting their profits in their social mission.

 In recent years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of social enterprises and these contribute to the economy and employ more people.

This surge in the number of social enterprises is thought to have come about as a solution to deep-rooted social, economic, and environmental problems that are otherwise being ignored. It is therefore vital that schools and teachers are aware of the importance of social enterprises, and that they introduce the idea to young people early on.

Learning about social enterprise builds on skills from enterprise, but takes a broader look. It can encourage young people to question the existing norms and imagine a different world. This can appeal to young people, who often have a natural sense of justice, fairness and inclusion.

The Lu Ban Lock Puzzle
It was a joint project between Devon port High School for Boys in England and Zhejiang Sci-Tech Engineering School, China. Qualified Social Enterprise students from the China school surveyed a range of teenagers in order to find a social issue to address. From the survey they discovered that a lot of young people were addicted to playing games which was considered as detrimental to physical and psychological health. In solving the problem, they developed a traditional Chinese intelligence toy, a hand held puzzle originating in ancient China called the lu ban lock puzzle to help stimulate brain activity which they made from recycled materials. They are working with in partnership with the qualified social enterprise     students from Devon port High school for boys who design the packaging and marketing the product for sale in UK and China
The Sea Mistress as a Case Study
Another important case study to examine is that of a seamstress who having understood the business and social issue decided to bring her social entrepreneurship skill in to play by planting her workshop in the school environment under the schools Home Economics subject, she taught the students how to design clothes and acquire the skills of sewing .In a short while the enterprise got jobs  to sew clothes, uniforms and other domestic wears from outside the school premises and it was just a matter of time for the collaborative effort of the student and seamstress to start Acquiring contracts from governments and its agencies. The advantages of social enterprise is crystal clear in this case study, first, students got to acquire skills of sewing and designing and secondly they got stipends for participating in an enterprise that brings about financial and social growth. It also brought about customer loyalty from the community which the school is situate, which brought about continuity in the business project.
