JD Central Provides Platform for Students to Sell Creative Products
by Martin Li
JD Central (JDC), the e-commerce joint venture of JD.com in Thailand, has provided a platform for students from local schools to sell their creative homemade products.
The project is a collaboration among Equitable Education Fund (EEF), Shrewsbury International School and JDC. It’s aimed at encouraging students to use raw materials in their communities to produce creative products.
Students from ten public schools under the Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC) can earn additional income by selling their creative designs on JDC’s e-commerce website and JD Central App.
All the proceeds will be donated to the EEF, which will then redistribute them to the participating schools. Only 100 units of each product are available.
“The project is aimed at providing opportunities for children and young people to demonstrate their potential in new careers,” said JDC’s CMO K. Rvisra Chirathivat.
JDC also provides students and teachers with training on selling products online, marketing and delivery, in an effort to help them understand the entire ecosystem of online seller, from source to destination.
The project will last until June 5th.
