STUDENT MOTIVATION

Great things in enterprises are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people. We may have all the expertise in the world but, if they are not motivated, it is unlikely to achieve our true potential. So our team has a united vision of making this project/initiative a success. This keeps us on the right track of positive outlook and makes them excited about what they are doing, and they know that they are investing their time in something that's truly worthwhile. Team-based creative problem solving, the interactions between mutually respectful students, and the thrill of succeeding together are a great source of motivation.

So we have a collection of motivational words to keep reminding ourselves of our goals-
1. "For every dark night there is a brighter day."
Our team believes that for every setback we have to face, we would have a better comeback. As believed, every dark night is passed by a beautiful morning we have accepted the beauty of 
pessimism in an optimistic way.

2. "Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools."
The team remains focused throughout and hence overpowered the problems in the pathway by 
 collective efforts, mutual respect of opinions and valuing each other’s ideas.

3. “Believe in your actions.”

For every initiative we take, for every time utilized, we believe in our actions. We believe in the worth of this project and our potentials. Hence, it leads to us that we are today.

Her finger runs deftly through the wheels of the sewing machine as she stitches out beautiful piece of clothing. Her hands that were once withered due to object poverty have new acquired a skill that she strives to master. It is not surprising to find out how Sangini sewing Centre changes the lives of women like Sunita, Ankita, Kavita and more. It is a place where women like her breaking the shackles of poverty, learn new skill and new trades-the key to financial independence. “Until a year ago, I could hardly make both ends meet with a meager income of rupees 4500 a month by providing domestic service. Sangini swing Centre has totally changed my life. The social status my job brings with it is even more rewarding than the income of rupee 12000 I make now,” she says. 



 Our school runs a project named SANGINI which empowers underprivileged women and girls to learn stitching and tailoring in order to make them independent and raise their standards of living. This sewing centre acts as a resource centre for FAB RETREAT and also provides tailoring classes to the members of the School Enterprise Challenge.



We believe in getting as much use as possible from everything and think that as long as machinery, or anything else, could be cajoled into operation, it should be kept; to do otherwise it is wasteful.


DON'T TELL PEOPLE YOUR DREAMS, SHOW THEM!

We, the students of Maharaja Agarsain Public School, got the golden opportunity to engage ourselves in a real life business project under The School Enterprise Challenge, run by Teach A Man To Fish, a global business start-up Awards Program for schools around the world.





Learning objectives include: 


  1. Strategic thinking
  2. Decision making
  3. Problem solving
  4. Financial analysis
  5. Market analysis
  6. Operations
  7. Teamwork 
  8. Leadership.




The business plan is a tool designed to help you find and explore opportunities. It also provides you with a way to analyze potential opportunities continuously. 
What we do is making and selling craft items like cushion covers, table cloth, rugs etc. made from used clothes.









To stay motivated and tuned, we realize our goals every day. We boost ourselves by ensuring a healthy competition with other teams. While much motivation is intrinsic to the students, teachers also play a vital role in the motivation and engagement of their students. A significant portion of student engagement and achievement are explained by our mentors.
The steps taken by our team to remain on track are-

•        Communication - Honest, frequent two-way communication between students and mentors including constructive discussion of workplace issues is ensure.

•        Challenging and exciting work – we ensure every student has a plan which is respected. We incorporate students in work where they enjoy and do not feel like burdening themselves.


•        Recognition and reward for performance – we make it clear what the incentives are and rewarded fairly across all the students to see the benefits of efforts.

Our First exhibition: the beginning


We now may be in for a real challenge when we decide to take the plunge and become a business owner. The stage is often set in the beginning.





Festivals are time to celebrate, rekindle family traditions and also reasons to shop!





On the festival, the sister ties a thread (rakhi) to her brother's wrist. In return, he promises to shield her from troubles and be by her side always. And let's not forget, the lovely gifts. 
Therefore, 
                 celebrating rakshabandhan, selling the items prepared by us to the students,their parents and school staff members, we made the best use of the opportunity and turned the event out as a great success. 




The entrepreneurs are not just running the business with the motive only to earn profit but to help Planet Earth by recycling, reducing and reusing.

Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality.



After the success of the first exhibition by the MAPS young entreprenurial team, they geared up themselves for the next step. 
The above pictures clearly show the efforts of these children in making crafts for Diwali exhibition such as diyas, bottles, etc.  

Diwali Exhibition Invitation



“It’s not just about ideas, its about making ideas happen”




Believe you can and you're halfway there!










A platform for us to Outperform!

With great zeal and enthusiasm we, the young entrepreneurs of Maharaja Agarsian Public School started their journey a few months ago. With faith in their minds and the motive of charity for all, these empowered minds are striving hard to accomplish their goals.



 Our motto is building next generation leaders and inculcating marketing skills in children, especially girls so that they need not depend upon anyone for earning their living.
Also we all working under the School Enterprise Challenge work not only with the motive of earning profit but also to help the Planet earth by recycling and reusing waste materials.
Not only this, SEC has helped raise our self confidence and made us independent to face any situation in our lives.




On October 7, 2017, the team Fab-Retreat organized a handicraft sale on the occasion of Diwali to exhibit their hard work, within the school premises. This event took the spirit of best out of waste to a next level. The industrious hands created elegant handicrafts out of all the used stuff. The usually categorized worthless things got their worth back when the students turned them into beautiful articles. The articles prepared by the students included lamps, candle-stands, floating diyas, rubber bands, notebooks and eco-friendly bags. This project indulged both Students and parents. It was a creative way to make stronger home-school partnership bonds. The appealing articles caught everyone’s eyes and were appreciated by all. Parents gave their precious feedback for us to get better. The project concluded with immense satisfaction and pleasure.


Diwali is a festival of sweet childhood memories
A sky full of lights
Mouth full of sweets and heart full of joy


On this ocassion of lights and sparkle where the atmosphere is filled with a spirit of mirth and love the members of The School Enterprise Challenge gifted beautiful handmade Diyas as a token of love and respect to the helping staff of the school.



Even after constantly motivating each individual, sometimes the team is equipped with the thoughts of hitting the rock bottom. This is usually when there is a drastic comeback of our studies. This definitely leads to the motivation among us and each other. . So to overcome dropdowns, our team mutually decides to change our schedules and plans. We work collaboratively in discussing the changes which should be made so as to not face the setbacks again. We take ideas from our past experiences and thus initiate new ideas and plans.


Coming together is a beginning,
keeping together is progress,
working together is success!!!
