Choithram School is the Winner of Special
Recognition Award (Stage 2)
UK-based charity Teach A Man To Fish has announced Choithram School, Manik Bagh as a winner of Special Recognition Award (Stage 2) of the School Enterprise Challenge 2015. The school received the award in recognition of the exceptional school enterprise planned and its contribution to developing business and practical skills amongst young people. More than 2900 schools from over 100 countries participated in the contest this year. The contest 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.
The school students were involved in creating a melange of eye-catching handicrafts from recycled material and setting up a business enterprise titled ‘Handy Handicrafts Organization’. The profits would go to the school’s partner school Bwafwano School in Zambia for their School Feeding Programme where for many children their school meal is their only meal of the day. Ms. Raminder Mac, Dean International Affairs and Lead Teacher of the project remarked, ‘School Enterprise Challenge is an excellent platform to hone the entrepreneurial skills of the students by providing them experiential learning as well as brings them closer to the environment and community. Principal Mr. Rajesh Awasthi congratulated all students and teachers for achieving this remarkable feat.
