Empowering & Educating Sri Lankan Communities
Organized by: Maggie Christian
EVENT DATE Jun 29, 2015
While studying for my Full-Time MBA at Vlerick Business School in Belgium, I became inspired to help educate local communities in developing countries. In collaboration with AWF, a group of us plan to go to Sri Lanka to create an Enterprise Training Program that will educate locals on business models, profits, financing and market analysis to further extend their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.
While spending 4 weeks in Sri Lanka I will investigate local business ideas and perform an in-depth analysis of local businesses, market research, site visits and interviews. The goal is to micro-finance the most promising business ideas which will create a more sustainable local economic future.
