This is a unique opportunity to participate in an industry study tour in the Philippines as you spend your time living and working at the GK Enchanted Farm. Little more than wasteland a few years ago, the Enchanted Farm is today a thriving hub for social entrepreneurs who are committed to building businesses in partnership with the local community.

You will get hands-on experience helping a start-up social enterprise and also be afforded an opportunity not given to many – you will be invited to explore the authentic Philippines with its people, culture and off-the-beaten track destinations.

This study tour also coincides with the 2018 Social Business Summit. You will be given the opportunity to network with over 500 international and domestic business executives - inspiring, purpose-driven entrepreneurs, politicians and students from the Philippines and beyond.
