What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
There is high level of primary completion rate in our community.Government can not provide secondary education for all.The existing secondary schools only prepare students for university entry despite the fact that only 9% go up tertiary level.The vast majority of young people find themselves in the informal sector where it is difficult to strive.The relevance of secondary education in our context is also questioned since it does not fully benefit its beneficiaries.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Self-sufficient school model is a solution.By blending vocational education and entrepreneurship especially in the field of agriculture,young people will develop adequate knowledge and skills they need to succeed after graduation.Through practical business education in a school setting,students will be able to decide to set up a business on their own with a start-up capital from the organisation or work in the schools company.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will produce 20 rural entrepreneurs with about 70% girls between the ages of 14-25 years old and they will be able to support sustainable development in our community.
