Abstract:To thrive into the future landscape, organizations must be adaptive, innovative, and entrepreneurial. Successful organizations will be those who will overcome the challenges and take on the opportunities brought upon by the uncertainties of the fiscal reality, lack of government trust, aging population, more culturally diverse communities, and changes in the funding environment. This research study aimed to critically understand and locate the traditions of social entrepreneurship among three cases of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and their leaders in the Philippines--Mr. Danny Urquico of Child Family Services Philippines (CFSPI), Fr. Rocky Evangelista of Tuloy Foundation Inc., and Mr. Dennis Drake of International Deaf Education Association (IDEA) Philippines. Social entrepreneurship as an engine to the development of NGOs are important competencies and strategies that are needed for nonprofits today in order to counteract the disruptive forces and proactively recognize and act upon opportunities in a given social, political, and cultural context.
Qualitative methods of observation, secondary data collection, with a combination of semi-structured interviews and an indigenous methodology of interviewing called sarita/pakasaritaan (story/history) were utilized.
This study finds that both the social and entrepreneurial behaviors of the organization and in their leadership plays key roles in positioning the three cases of NGOs to innovate and strengthen their capacities to advance the causes of social equity, people development, and capacity building.
