School in Paraguay needs your VOTE!

Great news – Teach A Man To Fish, a school in Paraguay, has reached the finals of BBC World Challenge ’08!

This is an unprecedented chance for us to raise the profile of Escuela Agricola’s Self-Sufficient School model, and take it to new countries – but they need your help!

1. Vote for Esceula Agricola (the Agricultural School) – Two clicks is all it takes!
Please vote now at http://www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/html/project08_sufficient.html

2. Forward this information to your friends, family and colleagues – and give them a chance to do something great today too!
What’s so special about this school?

The first amazing thing about the school is that it transforms children from poor farming families into skilled rural entrepreneurs by giving them first-hand business experience alongside their regular academic classes.

The second amazing thing is that it pays for itself entirely from money generated by the school-run businesses which provide this experience.

This means it doesn’t rely on charging tuition fees, scarce government support, or hunting donations – all of which make getting an education hard for children from poor families.

Every town in every poor country across the world could have a school like this.

PS Voting closes on November 21st, so please don’t delay – and vote now
