Snippets from the piece
Here are some extracts from the article, which contains insights from our team, addressing the multiple ways in which the School Enterprise Challenge benefits young people. For instance, it addresses how our programme complements classroom learning, helps young people develop key life skills, expands students’ horizons, and trains teachers!
“The setting up and management of a business is a great way to foster life skills, as businesses are engines that create new challenges that need solving on a daily basis. It is the perfect excuse to develop new skills by working in teams, solving problems together, using creativity to come up with new ideas, and communicating these to other people.” – Nik Kafka, founder and CEO of Teach A Man To Fish
“Schools that implement the model show that it reproduces itself. It will continue running and involve more students, who will then share knowledge with their community and families.” – Christine Moser, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Manager, Teach A Man To Fish
“Participating in a school business expands students’ interests—it empowers them to look at other horizons and different areas of work.” – Sharon Munyazikwiye, Rwanda Country Manager, Teach A Man To Fish
“We don’t know what the jobs are going to be like in the future. So, if we can provide students with real-world experience to develop their soft skills and their attitudes so that they are able to navigate challenging situations, then we are truly preparing them for the 21st century world.” – Susannah Morcowitz, South Africa Programme Manager, Teach A Man To Fish
