Hello from Teach A Man To Fish

Registration for the 2012 School Enterprise Challenge continues to increase, with over 250 schools from 42 countries worldwide already signed up! This week saw the first schools registered from Mozambique (Instituto Agrario de Chimoio), Armenia (Lori Regional State College) and Somalia (KAAH Model School), so a big welcome goes out to all of these schools.

There was also a strong week for registrations from Uganda, and we would like to welcome Rwerere Standard High School, Rushanje Girls Secondary School, Jolly Children’s Centre, Mazzi Vocational and Mackay Memorial College Nateete. The Ugandan country level competition promises to be an exciting and highly competitive one!

If your school has not yet signed up – why not do so today? We would love to have you on board!

We would also like to thank all of the schools who responded to our first worksheet of this year’s competition, in which we wanted to learn more about your school and your plans for the competition this year. From all the responses we have received, it is clear that there are a great many fantastic business ideas being thought up by schools from all over the world.

Padiham St Leonard’s Primary School, from Burnley in the UK, has come up with an idea of creating pop-up coffee shops which they will use to sell Ugandan fair-trade coffee at Burnley football matches! Why not follow Padiham St Leonard’s though their Twitter page – @StLeonards

Another interesting idea was at Indeco Community School, Zambia. After having a lot of success with their tailoring business last year, the students at Indeco have come up with a plan to expand into raising chickens to keep the school earning profits all year round. We wish them good luck with their new plan.

Good luck also to EDTEC Academy who are planning to start an enterprise offering desktop publishing services, Botowina Methodist Primary in Ghana who will be cabbage farming, and Secondary School “Kozma Trichkov” in Bulgaria, who have great plans to create an enterprise which will process waste in a sustainable way. Follow us on twitter and facebook to keep up to date on what enterprises are being created!
