The Dean’s Fellows present “Making International Service More Meaningful,” a lecture by Daniela Papi Thornton ’00.
Papi believes that social entrepreneurship is key to further improvements in the development sector. During her six years living in Cambodia, she founded PEPY, an educational development organization and PEPY Tours, a development education travel company.
She is co-authoring a book on “Learning Service,” designed to put the learning first in volunteer travel, based on the motto, “we have to learn before we can help.”
Papi, who majored in economics in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters, recently received an MBA from the University of Oxford via the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship.
