Experiential Learning Project Profile GH05-003 DEVELOPING A BUSINESS TRAINING CENTRE! Vocational Training for the Disabled People in Rural Town of Guangxi PROJECT LOCATION Our Social Mission: To provide vocational training and employment opportunities to the poor children and young adults with physical or mental disability. Student Learning: Students will learn and experience the challenges of developing a selfsustained Business Training Centre for LSV. Project Opportunities: • Conduct a market research to further understand the needs and demographic structure of the district. • Evaluate the existing business model and operations of the Business Training Centre, which has 22 shop units currently running business on art, music, fashion and bicycle. • Suggest a suitable structure, internal accounting policy and financial model for the Business Training Center, within the laws for a non-profit organization in Mainland China. • If students had already formulated a business plan and are seeking an opportunity to pilot a store-front business, LSV can provide the space rent-free for a temporary or continuous business venture. Any profit generated by students from this business will be donated to LSV.
