The city’s recent ban on public school bake sales has forced students to come up with creative new streams of revenue. At the Computer School, on West 77th Street, students are working with Eco Africa Social Ventures to sell handmade Zimbabwean crafts to raise money for extracurricular activities. Eco Africa Social Ventures is a nonprofit organization that supports Zimbabwean female artisans; products include handmade journals, notebooks, bookmarks and ornaments.

“Our partnership with Eco Africa Social Ventures is a win-win,” said Henry Zymeck, the school’s principal. “It teaches students about the spirit of helping others while raising needed funds for their school.”
