This report gives insights of ideas and developments within the charities` In Place of War`s (IPOW`s) network, that would like to commercialise The Creative and Social Entrepreneurship Programme (CASE) by embedding it into institutions internationally to generate a new income stream. Offered as a social enterprise model, this would enable free participation for people from disadvantages backgrounds and  in sites of conflict.

Discover in the report the concept and several examples of implementing a one-for-one business model. Under this model, students at IPOW essentially contribute financially through their enrolment, thereby facilitating the expansion of IPOW’s education program for young individuals impacted by conflict in the Global South.

Explore other innovative ideas that have emerged, including the development of a novel private sector training program called Executive Leadership Experience. This program has been inspired by the achievements and expertise gained through delivering training to business professionals.
