In Africa, social enterprise is increasingly considered key in addressing the myriad social, economic, and environmental challenges that the continent faces, through activities that create value. In addition, social enterprises are being called up to complement government efforts in the delivery of public services and to fill institutional voids. That said, current research does not adequately scrutinise the value that social enterprises create to fulfil these obligations or the ways in which context influences their value creation activities. This study contributes to this debate through a case study analysis of a social enterprise based in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia and the value that it creates. The findings reveal that the value created by a social enterprise is intricately linked to the context in which it is embedded.
