The 8th graders running Jungle Jars sell succulents and lanterns to benefit the people of South Sudan. Profits from every succulent sold are donated to Water for South Sudan - a nonprofit whose mission is to bring fresh, clean water to the people of rural southern Sudan.
While running a profitable sugar scrub business, these first graders learn core subjects like math via accounting, science as it related to herb growing and production, and art while designing for their business.
