“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 High 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!
Says Niveditha of 10IG on July1st at the onset of BE program.
The students of 10IG and 11 ISC are midway into their journey of teaching business skills at Gunjur. They are learning a lot in the process, not just business skills but just the joy of interacting with students of their age and facing the reality of cultural, socio economic differences and how to circumvent these differences as a team.
A praiseworthy gesture was the donation of Science charts by Sridhar Prabhu of 10IG to the Head Mistress of Gunjur High School during a BE session. Sridhar bought the charts out of the money he had received from the Book Lover’s Award which was presented to him on Award’s day at Inventure.
While at Gunjur for the BE sessions, Sridhar noticed the lack of visual aids in the classrooms to supplement the learning and he felt the need to contribute in his own manner.
Way to go Sridhar!
The journey of BE continues at Gunjur. Keep you all posted!
