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.
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.
DSO solves this problem through its consulting projects in two major ways: (1) It enables highly-talented and motivated students to gain hands-on experience in international development before graduating. (2) It enables professionals to pursue their passion for international development beyond their day jobs, contributing back learned skills and knowledge through mentorship and guidance.
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.
