Two new videos have been launched on the School Enterprise Challenge YouTube channel to support the teaching of key business topics: 'Risk Management' and 'Growing the Business Team'. For the first time in Teach A Man To Fish history, these videos were filmed in Rwanda.
Since 2014 we have been building up a suite of educational videos for the School Enterprise Challenge, to accompany our set of written business guides for teachers. These videos cover topics such as Generating a School Business Idea, Financial Planning for School Businesses, and even Accounting and Record Keeping for School Businesses.
"We made the decision to film in Rwanda because we'd never filmed there before, and with the School Enterprise Challenge flourishing in the region, we thought it would be a nice opportunity to showcase their success. In 2018 over 200 business plans were submitted by more than 170 schools across the country - our largest intake yet. It's an exciting time to be involved. We took a local film crew to shoot the videos at Kigali Leading Technical Secondary School and IPRC Kigali School, and spent two days filming. It was quite an exciting (though challenging!) experience but we got there in the end. The students seemed to really enjoy themselves and we even saw some of them playing with the camera equipment between shoots! This was a good learning experience for the whole team, and hopefully will have even inspired some of our students to think about taking up a camera themselves..."
