Creating a new generation of entrepreneurs
Problem statement: Graduating students at Auro school did not all get jobs. Very talented students were not able to provide for their families as they could not afford to start ther own entrepreneurial ventures.
Solution: Implement a reward scheme at Auro School, incentivising and rewarding the best students in each vocational skills subject. The reward is a starter kit which contains tools and material which help our students start their own venture once they graduate!
Three Case Studies
