Extended Deadline Announced for Global School Enterprise Challenge

UK Charity, Teach A Man To Fish Will Extend the Registration Period for Schools Around the World Until the 14th of May 


Global School Enterprise Challenge

The School Enterprise Challenge was designed as a way of transforming large numbers of young people from all over the world from job seekers into job creators. The programme challenges young people to establish a socially responsible, yet profitable, business at their school. This offers a platform for providing hands-on relevant education to students, at the same time as generating extra income for the school. In 2015, more than 2,900 schools from over 100 countries benefited from participating in the School Enterprise Challenge.

Those that reached business implementation stage generated an average income of $680 in their first 4 months of operation.

Due to high demand from both low and high resource schools across the world the deadline for registrations has now been extended to the 14th of May. Once schools register they receive regular educational materials advising them on how to set up a real school business. Teachers and students work together to come up with a business idea, plan and implement the actual business and write a final report to capture the process. Past winners have come from across Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and the Americas.

"We are delighted to be organising the School Enterprise Challenge for the sixth year running. With more countries and schools getting involved the competition will be even bigger and better and more young people will be equipped with the skills needed to enter the business world," Nik Kafka, CEO of Teach A Man To Fish.

Registration is free and open to all schools. For more information on the School Enterprise Challenge please visit:
