Entrepreneurship and Self-Competent Workshop

Glocal After School in collaboration with Anurodh Nepal and Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers initiated the project Entrepreneurship and Self- Competent Workshop to develop the entrepreneurial mindset and make the student of grade 8, 9 and 10 more self- competent.
