Social Business for Education is an income-generating project,
profits from which will be used mainly to run and support free,
mandatory, and quality education at community schools. The rest of the
profits will be spent on village development projects through a local
government-led community planning process. These income generating
self-sustainable businesses are appropriate for the local economy and
run as a community managed cooperative. As such, both the community and
the school will participate directly in the planning, implementing and
running of the business. Each year a certain amount of generated funds
from the SBE is allotted towards improvements outlined in the School
Improvement Plan (SIP).
