Undertaking is swinging all the time to find solutions in the face of risks and conflicts, to make things happen.
MÉLANIE MONTINARD, Co-founder of Mawon.
Mawon is a Social Business that transforms migratory journeys into legal, safe and culturally rich experiences.
Through an innovative business model that self-finances its integration projects, Mawon transitioned from an association model that governs civil society organizations to establishing itself as a Social Business.
What are social businesses?
They are business solutions to socio-environmental problems.
The concept of Social Business was created byProf. Muhammed Yunus, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006, to designate financially self-sustaining initiatives that have a specific social mission.
There are two divergent lines of thought related to the distribution of profits generated by the operation of the social business. However, both have the same interests in common: the benefit of a group of people, not personal gain.
Provides services related to migration issues (such as migratory regularization) and cultural fairs, whose income generates income and/or subsidizes services for low-income migrants.
Receives funds from sponsorship and/or donors to develop projects aimed at integrating the migrant and refugee population, such as instrumental language classes and training for income generation (employability and entrepreneurship).
Mawon built a hybrid system business that incorporates two CNPJs – Association and Company – with different activities and objectives.
Financial sustainability model
In order to generate effective and real impacts, we have developed a model that transfers resources from the Company to the Association, thus guaranteeing the sustainability of our migrant integration projects.
