Micro Tyco Challenge 2015

Micro Tyco is a social enterprise challenge to raise funds for charity.  The challenge was devised by Mick Jackson, founder of Wildhearts, a charity that provides micro loans to some of the poorest people in the world.  Teams are given £1 and asked to raise as much money as possible from that initial £1.  The Challenge lasts for one month and teams from Bishopbriggs Academy will undertake the challenge in November 2015. All profits are then used to provide loans for those in need, particularly women, who will then be able to fund their own businesses.  

The challenge encourages young people to become global citizens and develops team work, resourcefulness and entrepreneurial skills.  For further information visit the Wildhearts website.
