Girls Are Entrepreneurs

September 1, 2015

In June, 5 of our students attended Babson College's 5-day BELA workshop (Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy) with 100 other high school students. They learned about the 5 P's (production, people, place, price, promotion) as well as accounting and finances.

The facilitator complimented our students: "They were stars and it was easy to see how advanced they have become based on the support that you have provided them. From the strength of their English to their love of learning to their social skills, they stood out."
 

Girls Are Problem-Solvers

 

7 of our students attended TWENDE's Creative Capacity building workshop. None of them had held hammers, tri-squares, pliers, tin snips or wire cutters before.
 

While working pairs they measured, cut, bent and hammered to create their own corn sheller, which they later gave to their families to use.
 

 

   

The students were introduced to the design process and projects done at TWENDE to inspire innovation. Then students were asked what kind of tools they wished they had in their daily lives and came up with their own practical solutions - a vegetable chopper and a peanut grinder which they built.
