This practitioner paper explores the future direction of "Partners in Micro-Development Inc." (PIMD), a small, volunteer based non-profit organisation (NPO) working in education in underserved communities in Sri Lanka. Issues of sustainability and changing government policies within a post-conflict context are driving the need to re-evaluate the current business model and develop a new entrepreneurial and collaborative strategy. Informed by the literature on theories supporting the economics of NPOs, social entrepreneurship, and NPO sustainability, this paper integrates the literature into a conceptual framework for NPO sustainability and proposes a methodology for developing a strategy and business model to achieve financial sustainability for PIMD.
