Self-sufficient schools: How schools can make money for themselves

Status: In progress

Many schools rely on outside donors and/or tuition fees to meet their ongoing running costs.

It is also possible for a school to make money in other ways to cover some or all of these costs e.g. by running one or more small businesses based at the school.

If you have been successful in this how did you start, what challenges did you face and how did you overcome them, what benefits have there been to the school and its students?

Sulaiman, could you please let us know what sort of income-generating activities are already being performed by the school and by the community? Has anything been tried out yet? Have the teachers given any ideas? Is there a committee for this?

Hi Daniel,

Correct me if I am wrong, but this is what I can understand from your post above:

- the available funds are 10,000 Kenyan Shillings

- the funds required for the next term are 30,000 Kenyan Shillings
(you have mentioned the total as 30,0000 which I presume is a typing error)

Hence, your requirement of funds shall be as under:

- for next term 30,000 minus 10,000 = 20,000 Kenyan Shillings

Brainstorm options for income-generating activities for the school (self-sustainability)

Status: Just started

We would like to generate different options that the school can explore to help them generate additional income, and in the long term, to make the school self-sustainable.
