Millbrook Primary School, Wales, United Kingdom, recently joined the One World community. They jumped right in and launched a fundraising project in school to kick-start their new club and to begin to understand the term, ’empowerment’. The children thought of ideas that they would like to use to help others in the school community and the local community.
Together with their advisors, they watched a Ted Talk by Maya Penn who started her own business aged 12. This inspired the children to think of a creative enterprise scheme to hopefully raise money to feed into a good cause.
They created ‘Valentine Surprise Bags’ sold them in school and raised £76! The project was extremely successful and they are now deciding how best to use the funds to help their school / local community.
