What happened in 2013

It's been a marvellous year and we wanted to thank you for your incredible support.

For the past year, Be! Schools has been working in 871 secondary government schools in Bihar. Every week, 87,100 children have read stories to learn skills, they have played skills games in the classroom and gone adventuring into their communities to create skills action projects. Children have created children's newspapers about entrepreneurs, and we collected them, and read each one. We noticed for the first time this year that a number of women entrepreneurs featured in children's news. This is a very good change. Usually girls and boys can only find men entrepreneurs because those are the only people working or taking a risk. But there's been a change, this year girls found women who work, and they told us they were heroes. Girls found a woman entrepreneur who makes wedding band toys out of clay with gold paint and sparkles, another little girl discovered her grandmother used to melt orange sweets and then make orange ice-cream, she even sold it from her bicycle.

So the good news at the end of 2013 is that entrepreneurs are everywhere, and there's been a change for the better in Bihar, slowly but surely, more women entrepreneurs are appearing everywhere we look.

Please do watch the movie to see girls on the move learning skills in India.
