…or taking the strings of your life
The school therefore organised a seminar with the intention to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship among the young adolescents.

The aim of the workshop was to teach the children how to produce products, that people need in their daily lives. Thus, enabling them to establish small start-ups and improve their financial situation and standard of living.
Workshop on producing everyday objects
The young adolescents were taught how to make various products out of raw materials: from juice and yoghurt to batik dyeing and insecticide to pomade and various soaps. An expert in cosmetic production and in batik dyeing taught the students how to mix colours and make the dye. He also showed them the different procedures and patterns of dyeing with cold or warm water using a piece of cloth. Furthermore, the teachers and students received handbooks on the production of cosmetic products and candles, so that they could produce them at home.
