Green business brains
1:50pm Friday 6th February 2009 in News
WHEN it comes to saving the world and raising cash for charity, these Hampshire teenagers mean business.
Six green-minded pupils from the Chamberlayne College for the Arts have switched on their business brains and kicked-off their own enterprise, EnvirROM.
The team set up the business as part of the Faith and Football Enterprise Challenge, encouraging students to set up a business and running it for six months to raise money for the charity.
They hope that their idea of creating DVD-ROM discs for children, teaching them about the world, will help youngsters understand the importance of recycling, through interactive games and projects.
The determined group have sacrificed their spare time to create the discs, raise sponsorship and set up specialised programmes. All money raised goes to the Faith in Football charity that helps to relieve poverty for children in third world countries.
