American International School
In 2020/2021, the Social Enterprise Academy ran a mini pilot with the American International School in Egypt, with students from grades 9-12.
The School focused on the SDG Goals and due to COVID, students were not able to go on trips and visit communities and villages, so the Social Enterprise in Schools Program was a perfect fit.
The School ran a virtual "Mini Dragons Den" for all 192 students participating and afterwards, the students started implementing their business plans and began trading.

The bird life in Australia has been greatly affected by the recent bushfires, with many birds having lost their homes.
This social enterprise aims to build bird boxes which will positively support birds in the wild with breeding and providing homes. The pupils will be redistributing their profits to Birdlife Australia.
This social enterprise is focusing on the issue of Breast Cancer. Pupils have engaged a local barista who works in a social enterprise Cafe to train them how to make the best coffees with their School's coffee machine.
Alongside selling coffee, CCC (Coffee, Cake and Cancer) will sell hot chocolates, cakes and further sweet treats. They are about to start trading in 2021 and will be donating 100% of their profits to the Cancer Council.
