Challenge

Social enterprises are working on novel solutions to address global issues. These solutions aren't scalable due to limited human and financial resources. The untapped potential lies in talented students and young professionals who often join the private sector, where they learn valuable marketing, business, and technology skills. Students and professionals are passionate about tackling global challenges but currently do not contribute their skills to these challenges.

Solution

Goals: To foster a strong sense of empathy among all DSO members by gaining international development experience in the field and working directly alongside the communities we aspire to impact To utilize our unique combination of talent (university students and mentoring professionals) to offer strategic and technical, long term solutions to our clients that will enable them to better deliver on their mission To qualitatively and quantitatively measure project impact To streamline lessons learned across our hubs to scale and grow our brand and organization
DSO teams up professionals and student volunteers that consult social enterprises to develop impactful solutions. Past projects include building a video transcription tool that employs impoverished women and youth (client: Samasource) and creating a marketing strategy toolkit to enable more programs for human trafficking survivors (client: Made by Survivors). Your donation will empower volunteer consultants to work on more projects and expand our talent: more students, professionals and clients.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will allow DSO to continue to expand, connecting more talented students and professionals from multiple industries to the international development field. With your help and our model, we can collectively better tackle the world's challenges, one client at a time.
