 School Enterprise Challenge Rwanda 

“We appreciate this business because it helps us to acquire practical skills, experience and creativity in running a business.”

-Student entrepreneur, Rwanda
 
In 2016, we launched the School Enterprise Challenge Rwanda programme and supported 17 low-resource schools plan and to set up businesses that ranged from a barber and hairdressing salon to a dairy which sells ice-cream and butter, to a carpentry workshop. In 2017, we aim to bring our support to 40 schools.

The student business team of eight boys and two girls offers barber and hairdressing services to other students and school staff. The team had 900 clients and made a profit of  US$ 220 during the year. 
 
As part of our strategy to reach more young people in low-resource schools throughout Africa, we are working closely with partner organisations in countries where we are not present. In Tanzania, we are working with Fundación Paraguaya and, in Kenya, we are continuing our support for schools through working with 5 local non-profit organisations.
