We are delighted to launch the COBIS Race4Good, an opportunity for students in Years 10-13 to transform the lives of a remote community in Nepal.
The COBIS Race4Good will take place from 28 February to 18 March 2022. It is an online leadership programme that will bring together schools from around the world to take part in a series of groundbreaking races aimed at uplifting a remote community in Nepal.
Supported by international business mentors, student teams will compete against other schools for the chance to leave an incredible legacy in the form of economic uplift in a remote community in Nepal.
Through a fast-paced, online race format, teams will be given a specific number of days or weeks to research critical real-life issues and develop business plans to uplift families and the community. As teams progress, they will start to tackle more complex issues, including healthcare, infrastructure, design, education, and water harvesting.
This is not a paper exercise – winning solutions will be implemented within days, restoring independence, self-esteem, and dignity to the community they are working with. Students will achieve all this by sharing their innovation, intelligence, empathy, compassion, time, and talent.
