This State Govt Gives Rs 2000 To 3.5 Lakh Children For Launching Their Own Startups! How Will This Work Out?
So that they can start their own ventures and become entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum
Basically, the state government had launched the ‘Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum’ two years ago, Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia.
While Addressing a press conference, he said that the aim was that no student should pass out from school as a job seeker but rather be a job provider.
Also, whatever job they do should be done with an entrepreneurship mindset.
How Does It Work?
To start with, children were offered a seed money amount of Rs 1000 to use their entrepreneurship skills and start earning more from that money.
Further Sisodia said, “The curriculum has made a huge difference in the last two years. One student started making masks, another started conducting yoga classes. A 12th pass girl student has launched her own accounting company and is providing employment to 20 persons, with a turnover of Rs 15 lakhs,”.
The initiative was first started As Pilot Project In Khichdipur School.
While talking on the subject, the education minister informed that the state government started the initiative as a pilot project in a Khichdipur school and thousands of rupees were given to the students so that they can start their own ventures.
He said, “Forty-one students of the same school started seed money investment by forming nine groups. All of them are in profit. This is essential, because in India, the solution to unemployment is found politically,”.
“It had nine projects. Two children have gained a profit of Rs 9580 after increasing their investment of Rs 2000 in the work of making handicrafts. Students earned profits in the work of refurbished mobile phones, in painting, handicraft jewellery, among others,” he added.
Implementation In All Union Territories
He proudly said, “With this experiment, it was proven that the government school children could become successful entrepreneurs in just six weeks,”.
Considering the success, now this project will be implemented in the entire Union Territory from 7, September.
Also, the seed money has been increased from Rs 1000 to Rs 2000.
