When we put Secret Projects 'up for sale' in November 2019, we wanted to be able to allow people to buy shares on behalf of children and young people. We firmly believe that within the next generation of youngsters sits a large number of future social entrepreneurs and potential ethical investors and, we want to help them with this journey. So, we actively encourage the friends and family of children and young people to think about purchasing shares in Secret Projects Community Benefit Society on their behalf
We haven't been disappointed! A number of adults have bought shares for the children and young people in their lives, often as a birthday or seasonal gift. We were delighted to have received the message below from Nita, who purchased shares for her grandchildren as a Christmas present.
“As a grandmother, it is important for me to know that the boys are being brought up to appreciate that presents need not be solely about them. I gave the Secret Projects shares to them as part of a Christmas gift. I feel that involvement in this project is so worthwhile and hope that the boys will enjoy learning about their investment and become involved and excited by its success in bringing an enhanced quality of life for other families”.
Our young Shareholders receive a Young Shareholders Pack that provides them with information about what owning shares means, as well having having some fun games and facts about India! To learn more about purchasing shares on behalf of a child or young person click here.
