Microfranchising adapts the proven principles of traditional franchising (one of the most successful business network models around) to suit the needs of small businesses in low-income communities.
GROW with Educare Centres brings microfranchising to Early Childhood Development.
A ranking of the long-term economic effectiveness of developmental interventions focused on poverty relief and job creation shows microfranchising to be the most effective and sustainable solution.
Most owners of educare centres in low-income areas find it challenging to access training, resources and a proper curriculum, and to meet registration requirements. Microfranchising solves all these problems and can be replicated at scale.
GROW with Educare Centres will, in this way, provide widespread access to education. We structure a fee-paying model, however, the goal of the franchise is not to be profit generating but rather operationally self-sustaining.
