Manish Sisodia launches ‘Business Blasters’ programme in Schools

In an effort aimed at helping youth acquire business skills, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday launched the ‘Business Blasters’ programme for Delhi government school students of classes 11 and 12.

“The Business Blasters program will serve as a milestone in the progress of the country. It has been launched for students of Delhi government schools of classes 11-12,” said Sisodia during the launch of the programme at Thyagaraj Stadium in the national capital.

The programme will be implemented in all Delhi government schools under the ”Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum (EMC)”.

”I am proud to launch this Business Blasters programme. It is going to be the foundation stone in the development of the country,” Sisodia said at the launch event at the Thyagraj Stadium here.

The minister added that the programme is an initiative, which if implemented properly, can take India from being a developing country to a developed one.

“When I was in school, we used to read that India was a developing country. Today, our children are reading that India is still a developing country, but if we don’t implement this programme properly, the children of our children will also read that India is still a developing country,” he said. But, if implemented properly, we will be able to change this history in our textbooks, and say that India is not developing, but a developed country, Sisodia added.

The programme was started at the School of Excellence Khichripur under a pilot project. Its purpose was to inculcate the belief in children that whatever work they do, they should do it with an entrepreneurial mindset, Sisodia said. In this project, nine groups of 41 children were formed and each child was given seed money of Rs 1,000 and these kids made huge profits, he said.
