Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation and transformation in various fields like education, health, environment and enterprise development. They pursue poverty alleviation goals with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and overcome traditional practices. Social entrepreneurs, similar to a business entrepreneur, builds strong and sustainable organizations, which are either set up as not-for-profits or companies.
Bati is adamant that it is the real life experiences and the approach that sets the social entrepreneur apart from the rest of the crowd of well-meaning people and organizations who dedicate their lives to social improvement. Bati is about applying practical, innovative and sustainable approaches to benefit society in general with an emphasis on those who are marginalized and economically disadvantaged.
Afford To Care Enterprise Model
Social entrepreneurship is the use of techniques by start up companies and other entrepreneurs to develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural or environmental issues. Bati shows how this concept may be applied to a variety of organizations with different sizes, CSR aims and beliefs.
The purchase of products or services drive the Afford To Care Enterprise Model because a set percentage of each sale is donated to a strategic Give Back Allie. Every time a product or service is purchased, the planet or a person in need is helped.
The Give Back Allies administer and carry out the supported services, empowering sustainable and responsible programs for individual and communities in need that have been identified for sustainable assistance.
An Afford To Care team is established to collaborate with strategic Give Back Allies to plan how to further the partner’s work. By allocating a percentage of sales to monetary donations or by helping the partners to provide services, sustainable impact is reached.
Bati was one of the creators of the VOS brand which successfully applied the Afford To Care theory into real world practice. He spearheaded the brand's growth and development on a global scale overseeing all parts of the operation.
