Studenteropgave: Speciale


In this master thesis, the concept of social bricolage and hybridity have been employed to examine how social enterprises in an extreme resources environment tend to overcome challenges such as institutional barriers and create social value. With a single case study of a social, economic organization named Trashy Bags in Ghana, a qualitative semi-structured interview was conducted to capture the various limitations in such a context. Moreover, how the application of the components of social bricolage and hybrid structure have favored the organization to survive close to 10 years. The finding showed that the lack of resources help social enterprises even to survive. Thus, despite the micro, meso and macro level of barriers, social enterprises are able to overcome in various ways as in the case of Trashy Bags, it was revealed that the surviving strategy of the organization has been to float between being an NGO and a social business.
