SKY project, Uganda

The SKY project has just started and will work with 4 schools in the Kampala district of Uganda. The programme offers further business support to schools who have shown motivation, enthusiasm and ability to plan a school business in the School Enterprise Challenge. The SKY project will help the school operate a sustainable, profit making school businesses that uses a practical hands-on approach to develop the entrepreneurial spirit and life skills of the students involved.  

The project will enable successful school businesses to ‘pay it forward’ and financially help other schools to also start their own business. Schools will take a loan from a Teach A Man To Fish’s partner microfinance organisation as seed capital for their school business plan. Once the business is making profit, the loan will be repaid in small instalments over time. The money paid back will then be paid forward to help reach out to new schools and support them to make their school business idea a reality.
