Feedback and 2017 Accomplishments

“EEESAY inspires us to be open-minded in terms of business.” - Anonymous 2017 learner

Being the lead teacher for the learners in our school business has enabled me to have a better relationship with the learners, my fellow teachers assisting in the project and parents! Some of our parents have given feedback about their children being so committed to the business that they carry on with production of the beaded pens at home in their spare time. This has resulted in some parents coming forward with advice and support on sourcing the materials needed.
