“When everything else fails, a story works.”
Ever wondered how a simple sentence like this would change anyone’s life?
Inventure Academy is working with an organisation named Going to School. Be! Schools aims to provide business skills to the students in the Government schools. They equip them with the necessities of entrepreneurship skills in the form of stories from real life. So all that has to be done is to teach children who belong to the Gunjur school.
That’s pretty simple.
Inventure Academy is the first ever school in Karnataka to be handling such a huge project. It’s not the teachers who will be heading this project but students’ themselves!
Yes, I was just as surprised as you are. How can a bunch of adolescents teach another bunch? But all our queries were answered soon. During Inventuring, students of grades 10IG and 11ISC were given a three day intensive training on how to exactly go about this project.
This training was both fun and interesting as it was something none of us had ever done before. On the last day of Inventuring, we went to Gunjur, the school with which we will be working for over the next 25 weeks. The experience was heart-warming. Even if our first interaction was just an icebreaker, the chemistry just clicked. They were extremely excited to have us there and we were thrilled by the end of it as well!
Over the next 25 weeks, our job is to share skills, entrepreneurship skills to the kids at Gunjur. A job that has a lot of learning in store for us.
I can’t wait to get to Gunjur this Friday again! And I definitely can’t wait to learn new things when I get there!
