An Australian Enactus team came up with a business plan to help try to break the homeless cycle. By hiring homeless people as tour guides, tourists help employ people while seeing the city from a unique perspective. Three tour guides earned an average of $2,350 in supplemental income through the project, transforming a social problem into an income stream.
