The School Enterprise Challenge is an international business programme for schools run by the educational charity Teach A Man To Fish.
It guides and supports teachers and students to plan and set up real, sustainable school businesses. Students get the chance to gain hands-on experience of running a real business and generate real profits to help support their school or a social cause of their choice.
Schools have set up an amazing variety of businesses. In 2017, more than 6000 schools from over 100 countries registered to take part and the businesses students set up ranged from fly fishing in Belize, to an inter-schools newspaper in India and a car wash in South Africa.
