JL Zwane: Corporate Social Responsibility meets Social Entrepreneur: Abstract
JL Zwane: Corporate Social Responsibility meets Social Entrepreneur is a case study by Clare Michell and Grant Sieff.
It was October 2007 and social entrepreneur Reverend Spiwo Xapile sat in his immaculate office at the J L Zwane centre, located on the corner of NY2 and NY7 in Gugulethu (Cape Town). He reflected with pride on what he had built up over the past 17 years. His congregation had grown from a handful of people to over 2000 members, and the centre attached to the church ran a number of programmes which benefited the Gugulethu community at large. He pondered a number of important questions: how to create the right environment for meaningful dialogue to take place between business and communities; how to develop the skills within his own community that would ensure the sustainability of the centre; and the question of succession, and the grooming of a new leader to take over from him when the time arose.
To generate learning about success factors and ethics involved in social entrepreneurship.
