Vidyadhiraja High school is a limited resource school that offers quality education to a large number of students, the lions share of which are the first generation learners. The students are provided with a multitude of creative opportunities that facilitate the children to become worthy global citizens. Last year our school participated in the International School Awards conducted by the British Council. The enthusiasm and devotion with which we worked to bring about the desired outcome helped in getting the ISA. It came to us as a golden opportunity when the British Council approached us this year with TEACH A MAN TO FISH project. To start up with the business we did a lot of research on the market possibilities and availability of resources , that would enable a child to embark on a business venture with limited resources. Finally we decided to take up Agarbatti making as our business venture. It not only benefits the studentsto develop entrepreneurship qualities but also empowers their non working mothers to use thus gained knowledge as an income generating source. Our ultimate goal is to impart thus gainedknowedge to the immediatecommunitythatstruggle to make both ends meet. Our INNOSCENT STICKSwill enlighten the school and the community with their divine aroma.
Entrepreneurship week – day 2 and day 3
Success is NOT an overnight thing. Perseverance, vision, commitment and flexibility are commonalities we see in successful people today. All of them have sought wisdom and knowledge and share theirs with others to pay it forward.
Embarking on communication with others and maintaining healthy communication are the real challenges in making a successful business.Our second and third day of the ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK was dedicated to connect with the women of the immediate community and other schools. We arranged a training session for the women in our school premises on making napery.
Our purpose was fruitful because many showed interest in learning our new product. Besides we visited two of our neighbouring schools to spread the message of entrepreneurship programs and to train them on making incense sticks and napery.
It was a great experience for us that we realised real happiness lies in sharing our knowledge with others and space them in our journey towards the vision of establishing a global nation which is self-sufficient in its true sense.
The axiom is so true: my wisdom and experience only has value if I share it to benefit others!
