Update from Enterprising Schools Network

In Guatemala, Teach a Man to Fish have supported 23 schools to prepare and submit a robust business plan. To date, 14 have started a school business.

3 schools from Guatemala have won prizes from the School Enterprise Challenge global competition, competing with other schools in over 100 countries worldwide. The winner for the region Latin America was a school for deaf and blind children in the North of Nicaragua.

There are now 15 active members in the network, 3 of them in Guatemala. Schools participating in the School Enterprise Challenge which demonstrated significant success in setting up and running a school business were invited to join the network at the end of 2015.

Teach a Man to Fish Enterprising Schools Network members are a mix of primary, secondary and technical vocational schools that support and inspire each other. Our mini-conference in November 2015, brought all member schools together at the Dr. Stephen Youngberg Technical Vocational School in Honduras.
