Key Information

In partnership with Thames International College in the Philippines, IIRR conducted a social entrepreneurship summer class for 8 students. David Carilla, one of the students, shared that he appreciated everything about the course. Staying at IIRR’s campus brought them back to nature and for some, even to childhood memories. More importantly, they were introduced to the work of Dr. James Yen and his rural reconstruction philosophy. Their summer school experience would significantly help mold them to become socially responsible entrepreneurs and professionals when they graduate.
