Entrepreneurship & Business at the Community Center

We surely have some future businessmen and businesswomen at Malaika’s community center! The students recently learned about business and entrepreneurship through an app created by IFA, a Brazilian tech group. Programs and Evaluation Manager Elvis Nshimba led the students in their first workshop, ‘My Own House.’

“I taught them that entrepreneurship is not only about making and investing money, but is also about transforming dreams into opportunities,” Elvis says.

He says he was impressed by the students’ abstract conceptions to make quick huts to serve as houses.

“In the brainstorming stage, I appreciated how creative they were.” This was a great, fun way to enhance our students’ educational opportunities to better prepare them for whatever futures they choose to pursue.
