Bambisanani Enterprises is a student led business with branches at both St. Mary's School and Mnyakanya School. Its purpose is to raise funds for the Bambisanani Partnership and to engage students from both countries in developing business and enterprise skills. The operation has been highly successful in both countries.
The enterprise is open to all students in both schools. Student volunteers have raised significant funding through a wide range of activities including importing Fairtrade Zulu crafts and selling them at a variety of venues, organising music concerts and sponsored sporting events. Students are continually developing new aspects of the business.
The board members, who represent different year groups, have been mentored by a number of Bambisanani Business supporters in both countries including:
Andrew Smithurst, Managing Director of Cardinal Maritime
Kevin Emsey, Chariman of Lupton Fawcett
Richard and Graham Chennells, South African Businessmen and Entrepreneurs
