  • Description

    Description

    This is a non-profit empowering learners in school with life skills and fundamental entrepreneurship skills to improve their livelihoods and influence them to focus on innovation instead of just earning certificates from schools to look for jobs. We work with all education stakeholders to inspire the creation of student-led enterprises right from the grass-root. We work with the community, education institutions, teachers and learners. Please message us if you are interested in working with us.
