Abstract:

TThis case focuses on two non-profit organizations, the Dalit Freedom Network (DFN), from the U.S., and Operation Mercy Charitable Company (OMCC) from India, as they partner to serve the Dalit (formerly referred to as “untouchables”) population in India. The Dalits are the poorest and most underserved population in the country. DFN and OMCC seek to serve them through the establishment of Dalit Education Centers that provide quality education, medical care, and various training programs leading to the establishment of micro enterprises.

Stacey had a Master’s degree in Social Work and enjoyed helping women and their families. Through Global Girlfriend, she was helping economically disadvantaged women from developing countries find a strong market for their products and assisting them in earning a stable income to sustain their families and move out of poverty. The case describes the ethical dilemmas the founder faces during the three months following that telephone call. She is faced with making a tough decision very quickly as Greater Good had imposed a deadline of August 1, the same year, to complete the merger deal.

Issues:

To expose students to the idea of viewing the world’s poorest (most underserved yet largest) population as potential customers;
To debate the economic and ethical dilemmas embedded in profit-seeking behavior of non-profit organizations seeking to serve them; and
To evaluate the concept of sustainability in the context of non-profit organizations.
