Le besoin : quel problème tentez-vous de résoudre ?
It is so sad that so many young individual has never leave their country for once to learn about other cultures and value. When I was 25, I took a trip to Holland that changed my life forever. I met people who lived in a state of material wealth but in a state of spiritual suffering. And I really saw myself, living with material suffering but had spiritual joy. The contrast was so stark.
La solution: quelle solution proposez-vous ? Soyez précis !
My solution is to introduce the Global Empathy Trip (GET).
Global Empathy Trip are intended to tighten that grasp by challenging preconceptions, raising awareness and giving room to process feelings, ideas and experiences in a healthy way. My hope is that once we have a better understanding of ourselves and our world, then we can begin to act more intentionally in the world; we become less reactionary and more purposeful. Global Empathy Trip focus on service and social entrepreneurship that encourages students to be purposeful in the pursuit of their passions, in supporting the marginalized, building healthy relationships and finding solutions to the difficult challenges our world faces today.
Le système : décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant de quelle façon votre initiative fonctionne ; indiquez vos principales activités.
The primary activity is going to be in partnership with a fantastic selected group abroad like Ashoka . Who are social innovators and have great vision for what can really lift the marginalized. My activities with them will be two-fold. First, to offer my hands and serve their mission and the people of Ashoka however I can with the engaged students. Secondly, to come alongside them and learn from these incredible changemakers through conversation and interaction over time. Unfortunately, it is rare to find people of true passion who are giving in service to society. It will be a precious opportunity to be with people like co-founders Jose Carlos and Aurelia and their team. If nothing else, I want the students to have a chance to catch the spirit of this passion and understand that it’s possible to live life in pursuit of a passion and not just in pursuit of comfort and security.
Le marché : qui sont vos collègues et vos concurrents ? Identifiez les autres personnes qui travaillent à répondre au même besoin et indiquez ce qui vous différencie d'elles. Comment ces concurrents pourraient-ils influencer votre réussite ou votre croissance ?
The Global Empathy Trip is still an evolving opportunity and as far as I know there are only few initiatives in the world actively marketing the model. Some of these initiatives are focused on engaging volunteers with professional skills to benefit worthy causes. Students on the whole don’t have the requisite professional skills to benefit their business model. On the other hand, Global Empathy Trip is about life-learning. While students will be involved in local learnings and speaking local languages, the point of the course is not to develop these technical skills. My real hope is that the course will effect each participant’s worldview and attitude and that this will permeate all aspects of their lives.

Jusqu'à ce jour, quels résultats a obtenu votre projet ?
Whilst the initiative is at the pilot stage, I have been encouraged by the interest shown from various educational establishment Nigeria, for example (1) Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, who wanted to use my project as part of an effort to support education in primary schools in Nigeria (2) Mercyland Elementary, in Ogun State, Nigeria who promotes some of the action featured on GET to promote tourism among their students.
Quelles sont vos prévisions en termes d'impact au cours des trois prochaines années?
My ultimate goal is to make as many educational establishments as possible to be aware of how International travel can be used as a valuable tool or resource to convey empathy for the multitude of worthy causes around the world. In the end, I hope that students will also want to be change makers. We’ll have had an experience of being with people who took a hard look at their society and decided that they wanted to live out Gandhi’s message of ‘be the change you want to see in the world.’ One best possible application? A student goes home, takes a look at a relationship/community/world and asks, “What needs to change?” Then they take a look at their own life, see what they can do about it and go for it.
Quels sont les obstacles qui risquent de freiner votre projet ? Comment pensez-vous les surmonter ?
The major barrier is that of funding, partnership and support around the globe. At the moment, the initiative is truly in a start up phase and need exposure to teenagers, families, teachers and administrators who believe in the importance of international experiences and social entrepreneurship for high school students. Legitimately, (I want to say this to all reading right now that) if this idea excites you at all — contact me! Let’s work together. If there is anything I’m learning about life these days, it’s the importance of meeting up with people that share my passion and seeing where it goes. This project is so new that your idea may very well be the most important one that I hear all year. Let’s make it happen together!

Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world [125 words]
Global Empathy Trip (GET) is the work of my heart. When I was 25, I took a trip to Holland as I was one of the eight finalists for the Phillips Livable Cities Award that changed my life forever. I met people who lived in a state of material wealth but in a state of spiritual suffering. And I really saw myself, living with material suffering but had spiritual joy. The contrast was so stark. I had never been so far out of my own context before (growing up in South-west Nigeria) that I had never had any perspective on life, the word, my own thoughts/feelings/actions. That singular experience gave birth to this idea.
