Bolivia: A Day in the Life of a CEAA student.

We had a very exciting few days last week as a wave of potential new students arrived at the school to take part in ‘taster days’. We invited teenagers from Tarairi and the surrounding communities to visit us and experience a few hours in the life of a CEAA student. This gave us the chance to show off what a great place the school is, the skills our students can learn and to encourage attendance for 2012. 

Uganda: Useful fun in the classroom.

Aside from the practical angle of running the businesses day to day, students are now taking ‘Business Project Lessons’ once a week. These draw on the Ugandan Entrepreneurship Curriculum, but allow students to get involved in practical classroom activities based on the school businesses that give them real life experience of planning a business. The activities are specifically designed for students without previous knowledge of business and to be as fun and engaging as possible.

BOLIVIA: How Not to Milk a Cow

My first week in Bolivia has been a whirlwind of activity and new faces, human and animal. Now, as I settle in to the vida tranquilla and slowly begin to find the heat slightly more bearable, I thought an update was in order.

Kenya: Meet one of Ondati's students....

 

Victoria Ouma started as a form 1 student at Ondati Girls in January 2011. She has five siblings at home, who her parents have to pay school fees for. She comes from a town about 2 hours from Ondati, where all the secondary schools charge very high fees that her parents cannot afford.
