LITTLE ENTREPRENEURS SCHOOL PROJECT
The Little Entrepreneurs School Project is MVF's flagship project that aims to provide access to 21st century skills across schools in Uttarakhand. With a Project Based Learning approach, we work to help children work on civic issues around them and pick up a problem solving attitude and essential skills like collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. The unique part about the approach is that children over the course of the project work on a real problem and look for real solutions and act to solve those thus building and entrepreneurial mindset from a young age.
Children go through six stages, DREAMS: Describe your Project, Reason for choosing your project idea , Envision how your project will play out, Act on your idea, Measure Learning and Share with others so they feel inspired.
With a region that is plagued with migration and joblessness, this idea hopes to instill the belief and skills in children that they can create livelihood opportunities for themselves when they are older by testing their creative and entrepreneurial ability while growing up.
