At the end of 2014, a global organization held a national business competition of over 500 schools. Educate! scholars from Kalinabiri Secondary School were awarded the Project Innovation Award! Their projects were liquid soap, shoe polish and crafts. They were interviewed on NTV & UBC and asked how they learned the skills. They replied by thanking their Educate! Mentor and the Educate! organization for equipping them with the knowledge and skills to start their businesses.
They have now started a producer group called Dalmex Shoe Cream, which is supplying shoe polish to Tuskeys, a supermarket chain in Kampala, Uganda.
Congratulations to the Scholars from Kalinabiri on this tremendous achievement!
