Religious orders teach entrepreneurialism in Cuba

Catholic World News - October 23, 2013

In a Communist nation in which 80% of workers are employed by the government and private education is officially banned, the Archdiocese of Havana, the Jesuits, and the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools have partnered with a Mexican university to offer courses in entrepreneurialism, the Fides news agency reported.

“Our course is designed to teach people how to run a business in an elementary way,” said an archdiocesan official. “Therefore it offers the basic elements necessary to adapt the project to our country.”
