More about the Country Winners

The results of the School Enterprise Challenge 2012 were announced on Monday and we are proud to commend 22 other schools as Country Winners for their dedication and hard work throughout the School Enterprise Challenge. Today, you can find out more about the Country Winners of Nepal and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Nepal: Nagarjuna Academy Higher Secondary

The ‘Making the Best of Waste’ enterprise produces compost and manure using waste from the school vegetable garden. Over 60 students are involved, packaging, marketing and selling their product within the community. The project is environmentally sustainable, and students, their parents, and neighbours have learned the importance of recycling and reusing waste products. Moreover, the students came to embrace practical learning and entrepreneurial skills.

Democratic Republic of Congo: Institut La Charité

The La Charité Shop sells furniture to students, staff and the surrounding community. The students all have positions on a business management committee, teaching them entrepreneurial and business development skills. The income from the enterprise goes towards supporting 40 orphans and vulnerable students, funding school events, and teacher training. Some profits have been put aside for the future, and the Institut La Charité hopes to sponsor the education of even more children in need.

Well done to both schools for their fantastic and creative work!
