A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

To successfully transition to a post-secondary experience, students attending Stamford Academy, an urban charter high school, need to acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to recognize and manage their emotions; demonstrate caring and concern for others; establish positive relationships with peers, parents, and adults in positions of authority; make responsible decisions; and positively handle tough situations. Our students suffer from being negatively stereotyped, yet improper guidance and perspectives of their actions causes them to unknowingly perpetuate the misconceptions. Many students have justice system involvement, modeling violent behaviors they witness. By conducting regular advisory meetings with these urban youth, students will acquire the necessary skills.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our team of family advocates (FAs) work very closely with students at Stamford Academy and their parents to address the social and emotional issues that make it hard for these students to regularly attend school ready to learn. These FAs collect data on each student through social and emotional report cards that have been carefully designed with the characteristics of our students in mind. These report cards have four main focus areas: social awareness; self-awareness; responsible decision making; and self-management. This data informs each family advocate on areas of strength and struggle for each student and collectively within age groups and grades. This data is used to create the advisory curriculum which creates a plan and lesson to teach each particular area of weakness.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Interdisciplinary teams consisting of the student’s family advocate, a teacher, and a support person such as a literacy specialist, teaching fellow, or discipline advisor, meet three times a year to rate each student on grade-specific benchmarks. The teams collect the data on their students, analyze it to see the patterns of shared weakness, and use that information to prioritize lessons designed around necessary skills at each grade level. Once a week, family advocates and social work interns meet with students to use the designed curricula to teach important skills such as conflict resolution, interpersonal skills, advocating for oneself, understanding the school grading system and credit accumulation, communication, and empathy for others in the school, neighborhood, and community and implications for healthy collaborative living in the wider world. These lessons take the form of an activity, role play, or discussion. For example, an advisory lesson was taught around school rules and policies. The group was asked to create their own school and generate the rules they would implement. Small group conversations led to skill-building around accepting those policies that are best for the whole community versus just those that feel personally comfortable and lead to personal gain.

Our charter school consists of low-income (80% FRL), mostly minority (96%) students in an urban setting who struggle with low academic achievement. No other nearby school purposefully recruits these students and has such a high concentration of students with Individual Education Plans (27%) and poor behavior. While advisories occur in other public and private schools, we aren’t aware of another high school serving urban youth in the same way. We painstakingly assess our students to find areas of greatest weakness and strength and then tailor our programming to address the results of our triannual interdisciplinary team meetings.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have successfully integrated advisories into the academic day for the 135 students attending Stamford Academy and are becoming more comfortable analyzing the data we collect from the social and emotional report cards. Our students learn language that helps to articulate expectations of students and community members with whom they interface. The skill building continues to create an environment that uses appropriate, effective language when expressing frustrations or need. This helps our students develop positive relationships at school, in their families, and in their communities. Peace in the student’s personal lives brings improvements in academic performance.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Improved empathy and communication skills will lead to higher graduation rates, greater job skills, better job retention, and fewer arrests. They live in poverty, in families who fail to communicate effectively, and lack involved adults who model appropriate behavior. School staff witness poor coping skills and want to change this. These advisories provide students the language and understanding necessary to more effectively advocate for themselves, recognize and manage emotions, solve problems effectively, and establish positive relationships. We plan to enhance this effort by providing more time on task, establishing credit-earning opportunities through acquisition of these skills, and exposing students to their local and regional community through field trips.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Students join Stamford Academy with significant academic deficiencies, reading on average 3.5 years below grade level. Competing for time in a demanding academic schedule proves challenging. Demonstrating the importance of social and emotional well-being as the foundation for academic achievement remains paramount to gaining school-wide support. Designing ways to offer graduation credits for achievement of necessary skills signals the commitment to educating the whole child. Reinforcing these skills at home requires structuring methods for parent enrichment; our family advocates have strong relationships with parents. It is hard to raise money in this climate for engaging activities: Volunteer speakers and the recruitment of community resources enhance the advisory curriculum.

Several years ago, members of Stamford Academy staff stood talking outside the front of the building near a group of Stamford Academy male students. A young couple walked past, pushing their baby in a stroller. The boys made rude, provocative comments to the couple as they passed. The couple were visibly shaken by the comments but continued along so as not to become involved in an altercation. The staff observed this interaction and collectively agreed that they should address this inappropriate behavior. Discussions with the boys, the couple, and other staff members made clear the need to conduct advisories to teach these youth how to interact with others in a positive, appropriate manner. When parents aren’t conveying these norms, the school needs to.

YOuth who are insentive to the stories of others and letting their own stories become an abstacle for them.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Acquiring an identity and establishing self-esteem are two of the biggest obstacles that our youth face. And because if that, they are less sensitive to those around them. Most teenagers go through periods when they are unsure of who they truly are, caring very little about learning who others are.We enter schools in order to inspire youth through speaking and entertainment. With the help of a single story, they are enlightened about the consequences that they will face should they continue to live their life without thinking of their actions. Our goal is for students to walk away from the workshop inspired to make positive choices that will help them in life allowing them tobe empathetic to the stories of others.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We open our workshop by standing in formt of the students as I go down a list of lables that they are asked to assign to the person they believe it belongs to. We then go back down the list, and have the people/person the lable belongs to step forward and shares their story. This demonstrates to them that they were not able to accurately judge anyone by the way they looked and that everyone has a back story that they may not know. The point is to help them realize that they too have a story and it is okay to embrace the parts of the story they can not change and to make choices about they things they can control as they move forward into their future. It also help them be more empathetic to the fact that others also have stories and not to judge based only on what they see because clearly, they can not know what anyone is going through..

"Many a man would rather you heard his story than granted his request."— Phillip Stanhope

We use a more conversational tone during our presentation because is seems to be more effective compared to more formal speaking. Young people want to listen to, and feel connected to someone who appears to relate directly with their experiences. We strive, through shared stories and amazing inspirational Music/Dance performances, to attain young people’s attention and impact their lives so that they walk away making wiser choices.

We close out the presentation with AMWAZING performances.

My mother was a drug addict,murdered 20 years ago.. about five years ago I decided to start a program for women in recovery called Up and OVer (in my mothers memory)I did not think I could without funding so I put it off..Until last year. I was talking about my mother to someone and realized we need to be involved with people NOW, not when they need help after bad decisions, but to help them make better ones in the first place. I had the same feelings, that it could not be done without money, but something made me move this time..even though people said it would never work without money, I moved. I sent out proposals in April of 2011 and we had our first date in June. We have been booking schools every since. We do not charge the schools because I do not want to give them any reason to tell us no, but I am realizing that I can not fund the need alone anymore.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

US public education is in crisis: -1.2 million students drop out of school every year (Education Week 2007) -About 50% of the nation’s African-American and Latino students graduate on time from high school (Education Week 2007) Our communities suffer: -Dropouts from ‘07 cost our nation more than $300 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity (Rouse 2005.) -A dropout is 8 times more likely to be in jail or prison than high school graduate (Harlow 2003). -The US spends $9,644/student compared to $22,600/prison inmate annually (Alliance for Excellent Education 2006) Our xperience in 40 schools nationally suggests the crisis stems from disengaged youth. The solution lies in building capacity in educators to engage youth using social and emotional learning (SEL) in culturally relevant ways.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Training educators in culturally relevant SEL practices using the Fulfill the Dream (FTD) curriculum will re-engage the youth they educate and improve academic and social outcomes.

FTD is a culturally-relevant, civic engagement curriculum designed to reach adolescents through social-emotional learning (SEL) standards. The FTD program seeks to accomplish this through engaging youth with empirically-proven principles of empowerment and directing them toward developing leadership, relationship, and citizenship skills. While using a culturally-relevant pedagogical approach (Gay, 2000), this program encourages youth to use these skills to set goals and increase academic achievement and social responsibility through the medium of hip-hop. This program builds cumulatively as it gives students tools to critically examine and deconstruct their realities for the purpose of discovering and cultivating assets to direct themselves and their communities toward positive change.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

GLO distributes its culturally relevant SEL curriculum, the Fulfill the Dream Curriculum (FTD), through organizations that work directly with youth. GLO provides training to youth workers (teachers, after-school workers, etc) on the proper implementation of the FTD curriculum and on cutting edge pedagogy including SEL and cultural relevance.

By training youth workers in SEL and culturally relevance, GLO builds capacity in educators to build authentic relationships with youth and engage them relevantly. Relationships and relevance provide the context for youth to voice their experiences, engage in empathetic dialogue, & act towards positive change.

The curriculum of ten chapters utilizes media, movement, and music that strategically incorporates youth culture to teach lessons and communicate main points. Many of these points are embedded within projects that allow youth to tell their stories creatively, hear the stories of others, all serving as a catalyst to ignite: healing intra-personally, empathy inter-personally, & social action institutionally. FTD youth develop a culminating project that represents what they learned by engaging their local community in a civic action project.

In a typical client contract GLO provides a two day youth worker training; a kick-off event for youth participants; a mid-way check in with youth workers to provide facilitator support; and assistance with the planning of a culminating youth presentation/civic engagement project. Youth alumni then have an opportunity to publish their stories through our Youth Voice Nation iTunes app.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

The market for culturally relevant (SEL) curriculum is under developed. There are excellent SEL curriculums available (as can be found on the CASEL website), however these curriculum are not culturally relevant or engaging for much of America's youth (especially high school aged youth of color). GLO and the FTD Curriculum are unique because they use Hip Hop, a youth culture, to engage youth by creating an authentic context for them to share their stories creatively, their identities critically, and fuel social action empathetically . Many SEL programs are not culturally in-tune with most youth and are therefore somewhat ineffective. However, since the need is so great, we have consulted with other CBO's & programs, such as Why Try, to help them become more relevant in their engagement .

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

GLO has worked in 7 cities nationally and has trained over 200 educators impacting tens of thousands of youth. The FTD curriculum has demonstrated increased cumulative G.P.A.s in youth (in as little as ten weeks) and increased graduation rates (with one school reaching a 100% graduation rate). GLO works in partnership with leaders in the field of SEL including CASEL, the Search Institute and university researchers. Results thus far have demonstrated decreases in despair, anger, and depression.

Additionally, youth from around the nation have organized a variety of civic engagement events. One event in L.A brought together a variety of stakeholders from CBO's to gang leaders. The gang leaders drawn by the safe activities for their children, were then engaged in organic discussion about the kind of community they wanted their children to inherit. The discussions brought the leaders to agreeing to work on a peace treaty, which was then announced by the leaders at the youth led event.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

GLO, in partnership with Purdue University, is on the verge of conducting the first ever experimental evaluation connecting SEL (empathy more specifically) to youth culture and Hip-hop. The goal with the research is to bring awareness of the importance of engaging youth in culturally relevant ways while doing SEL work to the field; and to increase our intensive training's to 5 per month. Engaging approx. 1,500 educators and 37,500 students every year, we estimate impacting 337,500 youth by 2015.

In addition, we plan to expand our reach by using technology. Our current iTunes app: Youth Voice Nation, is a youth led platform that allows youth to share stories and connect with other young change agents around the nation, & could expand to engaging youth with empathy and justice globally.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The over-emphasis of standardized education is a major challenge to our vision of making education more holistic and humanizing. Our plan is to demonstrate, through research (with DR. Slaten at Purdue) that engaging youth with SEL projects focused on empathy, does increase academic performance, while ALSO increasing student well-being, healthy relationships, and community participation. We believe that this data could help open up doors to more schools.

Additionally, we see a challenge being the continual top-down approach of introducing SEL and empathy programs in educational spaces. To counter this we have involved youth leaders in the creation of books, iTunes apps, and albums, that make topics of empathy and empowerment cool and more organically accessible to youth directly.

The impetus for this pedagogy connecting SEL and hiphop is not just based on research but on real life experience as well. I, Roberto Rivera, was once labeled an "at-risk" student & was given may labels such as being "LD", "EBD", and a "delinquent". These labels distracted me from reflecting on the real issues that were going on in my life (alcoholic father, physical abuse, and divorce) which isolated me from others & caused me to act out even more. Because of the role of my loving grandfather, I realized that I could take this fire, and with love, passion, and purpose, use it for something creative & constructive. I began to find an outlet through writing poetry and rap. It allowed me to tell my story, to listen to the story of others, to learn empathy and it fueled me to work for justice. The lens of empathy allowed me to connect authentically with others, to see root issues in the community, and to work creatively in connecting my education & passion to addressing these issues. Aha!

However, 5 years ago I began a programme called RECLAIM (alongside co-founder Ruth Ibegbuna) in Manchester for young people at risk of negative outcomes who faced significant barriers to success and this work has increased my belief that we have a model that is a low risk, highly effective model for achieving positive social change.
I grew up in a highly deprived area of the city with high crime levels; drug use and poverty were endemic. Like most of my peers, there were a distinct lack of positive male role models and the temptation for many to get involved in crime was high. Aged 14, a youth worker took time to support me and challenge some of my negative opinions and encouraged me to set targets and to raise my aspirations. I utilised these skills throughout my teens and 20s and I have stayed a positive, progressive person who works hard to benefit others.
RECLAIM’s central ethos is that every young person, especially in disadvantaged neighbourhoods, needs additional support at the pressure points in their lives. I received this support and now I provide it for others. The project has successfully supported over 370 teenagers across the city and has been evaluated as a success. I have mentored a teenage boy called Jordan for 5 years and work to support other teenagers in negative situations across the city.
I am a clear example that direct and positive intervention works.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In modern western society the pressure to work, to earn, to achieve, to provide and to prosper can often mean that families far less quality time to spend with their children than prior generations. There has been an increase in the social isolation of young people in the UK, especially as they enter their teenage years. The replacement of social interaction with solo computer gaming and social media often means that teenagers are lacking positive and active adult influences. Rising youth crime levels and youth unemployment means we risk losing a generation of talent through worklessness, alienation and media demonization of young people, labelling them as ‘feral’.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution is to create a supportive network whereby adults voluntarily contribute skills, services and time for the benefit of our most vulnerable young people. For some, they may have time to mentor a young person, whereas others may be able to provide a space for youth activities.
Time is the most valuable resource within RECLAIM. We are realists and a level of initial seed funding is essential, however beyond that, all involved volunteer their time, their skills, their resources, their buildings, their knowledge and their support for free. RECLAIM provides a larger network (or extended family) where there are shared values and high expectations of success. The ‘family’ only thrives when each member contributes to the accomplishment of a common goal. Our simple solution is for adults in the communities to create more time to support their young people, not just the young people in their own households.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Moss Side, Manchester is an area of the city blighted by negative headlines and high levels of gun crime and gang association. In 2007, we started the search for a cohort of teenage boys who would benefit from additional support from positive adult males in their community. We then asked the community to nominate 13 year old boys who they felt would benefit from RECLAIM. We then advertised for local men who wished to help shake off the stigma of the area and overturn some of the negative stereotypes to join me as volunteers and mentors. Through this 3 month process, I received over 100 nominations for boys to partake and had 27 adult male mentors.

Local firms supported the project in providing free transport and food. I also asked prominent and successful men if they would give their time to speak with the 45 boys at a 4 day conference. Everyone approached agreed and the whole project began with very little financial outlay and a whole community in support.
At the end of the 4 day conference, the young boys wrote a ‘Moss Side Manifesto’, where they voted on their top 8 priorities for positive social change in their area. Their number one priority was ‘Don’t let killers get away with the crimes’. This manifesto was copied and the boys distributed it throughout their community, asking the adults to support them in their endeavours.
Throughout the following 8 months, the boys engaged in a variety of activities designed to raise their levels of self-confidence and also engineer social change in their area. They then graduated in a high profile public ceremony in-front of their community. Evaluations have demonstrated that the project was crucial in:
- Turning around negative perceptions nationally of Moss Side
- Raising levels of attainment and attendance at schools for the boys
- Providing accredited training for male youth workers and mentors in the area

There has been a recent proliferation of large ‘Youth Zones’ across the the country, large industrial units that house teenagers and provide activities every day for up to 500 young people for only 50pence per day.
As a small but successful charity we face real challenges from larger organisations. We have excellent outcomes for our young people but the nature of the extremely intensive intervention work we do with young people, often over a period of years, means that we cannot demonstrate high number of young people that have passed through our programme. However, with a successful impact rate of over 85% and one of the highest retention rates for a youth programme dealing with some of the most vulnerable young people in the region, we have evaluative evidence that what we do works.

What is the social impact you have had to date and how you measure it?

RECLAIM young people have gone onto to win a raft of awards, including Manchester Young Person for the Year. Adult mentors have benefitted from the support of the programme and the skills training they receive. We have had many successful outcomes for our young people since the initial project. The key milestones have been:
Supporting our young people in writing a successful funding bid to central government for £475,000 to increase the level of youth provision and educational attainment within their area.
The recruitment of 10 new members of staff within RECLAIM, many of whom were previously unemployed or had criminal records.
7 spin-off social enterprises, led by previous RECLAIM mentors, all with the aim of providing positive activities and support for Manchester’s young people.

What barriers might hinder the success of your business? How do you plan to overcome them?

A key challenge is clearly articulating our vision and ensuring that all stakeholders truly buy in to the ethos that underpins the organisation. We do not see our young people as deserving of charity but of genuine support. The UK riots were a key challenge as the country shifted its stance towards young people and became less tolerant of those from disadvantaged communities. We overcome this challenge by utilising our young people as the mouthpiece of RECLAIM, allowing them to voice their priorities in their own words.

How does your model address financial, social, and environmental sustainability?

Social and financial sustainability are key outcomes of the project - ensuring the project can continue to work after funding ends is a real concern for us .
Key to sustainability is low costs - much of the work done during the project is done by volunteers. All our mentors are volunteers, support work is provided by volunteers wherever available, and close links to local business have been made in order to reduce costs as much as possible. The same model applies whether we work with large multi-national corporates or small businesses. They provide a service for the young people that befits the nature of their business and therefore is not a significant financial outlay. In past projects, IT support, venue hire, travel, food, and drink, have all been provided at significant discounts, or, often, for free. This focus on costs allows for best possible results from each penny put into the programme.
Social and environmental sustainability are also at our core. Our programmes are designed to find future leaders from the local area, who will in turn mentor and teach later generations.
Localism and taking care of one’s area form vital parts of each RECLAIM Community ‘Manifesto’, with participants keen to stress the importance of keeping their area clean and safe. Finding and building leaders from areas without traditional environmental investment allows them to push for reform outside the normal channels.

How do you see social entrepreneurship contributing to the improvement of developing countries?

RECLAIM has a methodology with a global appeal. We have already had inquiries from Soweto in South Africa and envoys (including a Government Minister) from Brazil visit us to see our work in practice with an eye to seeing if the work could be replicated in new communities under pressure.
Social entrepreneurship programmes like ours will be vital in accelerating growth in less-developed countries. Where economic, social and political backgrounds are preventative of traditional forms of financial investment and social welfare, social entrepreneurs and charities must step in to provide both services and access to employment, training and well-being. We are currently working with our teenagers to develop two new social enterprize models that they will lead
Equally, not all of the focus in developing countries ought to be on pure financial benefit – the 2008 financial crisis shows the dangers of putting all of one’s hopes in pure profit.

What aspects of your stay in Uganda as part of the competition do you think you will find most challenging and rewarding?

A key challenge would be to identify the shared experiences of disadvantaged children there with those backhome and quickly assess which aspects of RECLAIM adapt to the changed environment. A key element of RECLAIM is the fact that it needs the dynamism of enthusiastic leadership to get stakeholders on-board. Within Manchester we have built a relationship with the business community; RECLAIM is synonymous with effective youth participation. It would be a real challenge to take the project to another country and to have to start again at square one in convincing new stakeholders of the need for this project.
My father is West African and I have always felt concept underpinning RECLAIM is reflective of the famous African proverb: ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. I feel that there may be less of a challenge to persuade the Ugandans of the need for RECLAIM, as culturally they may be more strongly aligned to this work than in the UK.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Heroic Imagination Projects unlocks the everyday hero inside of young people. Too often, young people fail to stand up, speak out and act in the face of challenging situations such as bullying or discrimination. This inaction is not inevitable, and it largely stems from students not understanding how situational forces -- the social psychology at work at any given time -- block their capacity for empathy. In other words, peer pressure, the Bystander Effect (the feeling of paralysis when part of a group - especially in a crisis situation) and other psychological phenomena play more of a role in whether or not an individual displays empathy than most people realize. Bullying is perhaps the most common and damaging manifestation of these "situational forces."

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Founded by esteemed Stanford emeritus professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo, one of the world's foremost social psychologists, the Heroic Imagination Project aims to give students a deeper understanding of how social pressure impacts them, giving them agency and ownership to display empathy. Specifically, we provide interactive lessons to students in middle and high school, teaching them about psychological forces, how the basic properties of a given situation can exert influence over them, and what concrete steps they can take to ensure they act wisely. With lessons on topics such as The Bystander Effect, Peer Pressure & Conformity, Obedience & Authority and Ingroups & Outgroups, students gain both an awareness of why they feel the way they do in difficult situations as well as the skills to step up and act, becoming mindful change agents and demonstrating everyday heroism and empathy to promote pro-social behavior and prevent bullying and discrimination.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Since we base our work in research-based, measurable practices, HIP piloted its lessons over the 2010-2011 school year through ongoing partnerships with ARISE High School in Oakland, CA and Foothill Middle College in Los Altos, CA. In addition to high levels of engagement and interest, formal pre- and post-assessment results showed a meaningful increase in students’ knowledge about the Bystander Effect versus a comparison group – scoring on average 40% higher on a six-point scale. Similar effects were also seen in the students’ knowledge about conformity and prejudice. With an increased understanding of how situations can shape and affect people’s actions, meaningful increases were also seen in the areas of empathy, forgiveness and compassion for others.

A powerful example of the potential of HIP comes from Phillip Johnson, a senior at ARISE who participated in the pilot. In an interview with a Canadian Broadcasting Company radio program, Phillip explained, “I used to be the kind of person who, if someone asks for something, I’d wait a moment and see if anyone’s going to budge, but nobody does. So now if I see somebody in need I just walk right up. Recently [on the bus], there was a guy who was having an asthma attack. Everybody on the bus was talking about ‘I don’t want to see this guy die, put him off the bus, let’s keep going.’” Instead of conforming to the Bystander Effect like everyone else, Phillip remembered what he had learned, had the driver stop the bus, and ran to get help – a life-saving act of everyday heroism.

Due to our innovative programming and the potential for our work's impact, stemming from the lifetime of experience and expertise that Dr. Zimbardo brings to bear, the Heroic Imagination Project has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, the magazine Science and on the Dr. Phil show and National Public Radio, among others. While other organizations exist that work against bullying and youth violence -- No Bully and Green Dot, for example -- our distinguishing factors are how deeply we ground our work in social psychology research and how we focus on teaching individuals to become aware of and mitigate the effects of situational forces. We believe that there is more than enough room for multiple approaches in the field of building empathy and ending bullying.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

HIP’s educational curriculum has been presented to nearly 100 students in the San Francisco Bay Area. The initial impact is encouraging. Pre- and post-assessment data show that participants display the following:

1.) meaningful increases in awareness and understanding of the power of situations and groups to influence individual behavior;
2.) greater skill in resisting negative social influences;
3.) increased ability to overcome challenging situations - social, emotional and academic;
4.) greater belief in their own abilities to become catalysts for positive change, in their own lives and in their communities.

In Southern California, 20 high school students designed service-learning interventions in everyday heroism that they "taught back" to more than 200 younger students in their community.

Additionally, workshops in HIP’s curriculum were presented to 500 educators in Tijuana, Mexico and 60 officers during Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Academy.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The next 1-3 years will mark exponential growth. We plan to move into five additional high schools and directly reach 500 students through those efforts, and host 50 "train-the-trainer" workshops for educators, counselors, mentors and other youth workers.

These workshops will allow us to reach approximately 15,000 students. Moreover, we will work towards having HIP’s curriculum receive wide adoption by major school districts and other institutions, as well as publishing it in electronic and print book forms.

Within 3 years, we will see measurable decreases in bullying and youth violence, and increases in civic participation, in areas where HIP's programming has been delivered, as young people's capacity to practice empathy increases.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The major barrier that may hinder our success will be finding entry into schools, which tend to have little extra capacity for non-academic interventions. However, we believe that we can overcome this challenge because our curricula are extremely adaptable, able to be delivered in large-group assemblies, after-school clubs, during counseling periods, homerooms, etc. Moreover, with the main thrust of our work aiming towards training educators, we will be preparing individuals to take our programming into the schools in which they already work. Finally, we can make a compelling case that our work in fact IS an academic intervention, since activating students' empathy and increasing feelings of safety & security at school have been shown to have a substantial impact on academic achievement.

Prior to founding HIP, Dr. Philip Zimbardo was finishing a distinguished career as a prof. of psychology at Stanford University; he is renowned as one of the world's leading social psychologists and a pioneer in the field (best known for the Stanford Prison Experiment). In 2006, when he was called as an expert witness the Abu Ghraib trials, his intellectual and emotional interests underwent a profound transformation. No longer content to focus on man’s inhumanity, he turned his attention, intellect and passion to how people can embody heroism, empathy, courage, integrity and action in the face of evil. It was not long before he would become the founder of HIP, a new organization designed to do just that: to promote heroism in all its facets, a subject that had received hitherto little, if any, formal academic attention. It was to be an organization rooted in science and research, an organization that would spawn countless everyday empathic heroes on every continent.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Educators today must meet the challenge of teaching in a global age in which we live with people whose appearance, experiences, and traditions strike us as different from our own. Young people need to learn to foster empathy and inclusiveness in their communities so that everyone can thrive. However, youth trends today show declining empathy and civic engagement. Key to the ability to foster inclusive communities is the understanding of others’ perspectives, recognition of the importance of individual choices, and a sense of civic agency. While our society has increasingly focused on academic achievement and high stakes testing, social and emotional learning and civic responsibility must also be seen as essential components of education.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Facing History and Ourselves sees social and emotional learning as an essential part of education, integrating them into academic curricula for adolescent students by providing a framework for exploring history and contemporary society through the lens of human behavior and choices. By studying historical examples of discrimination and violence, courage and compassion, students consider the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion and the consequences of choosing to act or remain passive. Using concepts fundamental to adolescent development, such as identity, belonging and exclusion, obedience, and responsibility, to examine the choices available to people in historical events such as the steps that led to the Holocaust enables students to make connections to their everyday lives. Evaluations have demonstrated that the program increases empathy and respect for others even when they disagree or seem different, and fosters an increased willingness to act to prevent the mistreatment of others.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Facing History creates sustainable change by working with teachers, who impact young people through daily contact. To optimize teachers’ capabilities we provide support for lifelong personal and professional development in the areas of content knowledge and understanding, emotional intelligence, and social intelligence. We offer resources, training, and mentoring, in person and online, to prepare teachers to deliver effective classes that promote empathy and civic engagement. Using Facing History’s program in courses such as American history, world history, language arts, civics, and electives enables teachers to engage their students in reflection on tolerance and empathy, social justice, and civic responsibility. Evaluations have demonstrated that Facing History increases teachers’ confidence in their ability to make a difference.

After attending a Facing History seminar in July 2008, Gregory Gallagher, a teacher at Westborough High School in Massachusetts, created a semester-long Facing History elective that is so popular the school now offers four sections. Facing History provides ongoing mentoring so that he can enhance his curriculum every year with new resources and improved methodology. Interviewed by a local newspaper about the course, one student responded that the class “creates a positive environment at the high school” and helped her evaluate her moral values and daily decisions. Another student agreed, “This class is all about personal reflection. . . The main thing is if you want to stop something from happening, like bullying, you just can’t ignore it.”

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since the organization was founded in 1976, we have provided in-depth professional development to more than 38,000 educators. Active teachers in our network reach two million students each year. Evaluations of classrooms that have implemented Facing History found a statistically significant impact on students’ empathy and pro-social behavior, decreases in student aggression, and increased capacity to confront social injustice, including teasing, racist behavior, prejudice, and discrimination. Specifically, students were less likely to endorse bystanding and more likely to endorse intervening in situations of bullying and injustice.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

To increase our impact, we will expand the network of teachers using Facing History's content and methodology by almost 50 percent over the next three years, bringing the active teacher network to a total of more than 31,500. Through this network, we will reach an estimated 3,150,000 students in 2014-2015.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our goals for growth are ambitious. Reduced funding for educator professional development because of a continued weak economy would slow the growth of our educator network and our ability to impact students. We have established yearly growth goals will monitor the expansion of our network in comparison with these goals.

At a workshop on Holocaust education in 1976, Margot Stern Strom, a middle school teacher passionate about promoting student voice and democratic participation, realized that this case study encompassed all of the issues of civic education in a democracy, such as identity, discrimination, resistance, personal responsibility. Strom developed a framework for teaching this history that conveyed an understanding that it did not have to happen but instead was the culmination of choices at every level of society. This framework also helped students to connect issues in history to their own lives. Students using this curriculum showed a remarkable depth of thinking, sensitivity, and awareness of the importance of their choices. Other teachers asked for the curriculum; Strom sought funding to provide professional development to other teachers; and Facing History and Ourselves was born. As Facing History grew, Strom saw that the program can have a positive impact on a whole school's culture.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Pyramid Running Camps seize on the opportunity to engage youth in sports while also teaching them broader life lessons for success such as decision-making; self-motivation; working within a team toward common goals; valuing diversity; overcoming fear of failure; understanding how to win, and lose; and respecting the values and beliefs of others.

As anthropologists who have conducted field projects on kindergarteners in the sandbox have noted, the kind of learning we best retain takes place in creative play. Not only do we hold onto what we learn when we play creatively, but we can't just hold it in – we have to share it with others! This is why using running to teach youth about the foundations of a successful life is so powerful, lasting, and contagious.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Give Running uses running to instill in youth the character traits that serve as a foundation for success in the classroom, community, and life. Since 2006, we have collected, cleaned, and distributed more than 12,000 pairs of running and athletic shoes to disadvantaged kids in developing countries and local inner-city communities.

To further promote a love for running and the benefits it fosters, Give Running conducts youth "Pyramid Running Camps" that include leadership development and community service components emphasizing the broader application of lessons learned through sports. Thus, in addition to teaching kids about well-balanced training, nutrition, sports psychology, and injury prevention, we also work on teamwork, communication, goal-setting, and achieving personal success. Give Running concludes each camp with a 5K road race that engages the wider community in our celebration of fitness and empathy. Our expansion plans also include developing youth running club teams.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

With Coach John Wooden being one of my most esteemed role models whom I once had the joy of spending an afternoon with, our signature activity challenges teams of campers to find and then assemble the different character trait blocks to physically build Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success. Indeed, the name “Pyramid Running” underscores the fact that Coach's teachings are at the heart of our philosophy.
Team members must work together to overcome obstacles -- such as being blindfolded, having arms tied together, and being unable to speak -- in order to find all fifteen blocks. Then, the youngsters must use the clues on the boxes to arrange the character traits in the correct order to tangibly build and learn about the Pyramid of Success.

Utilizing this type of creative play helps communicate our greater message and meaning. Youth learn about teamwork and leadership when they must trust the strengths and physical vision of teammates to achieve their common goals. Moreover, real-life experiences reinforce other Coach Wooden maxims such as “Be quick, but don't hurry.”

For additional information about our model and to see what it looks like in action, please watch the following video about the Pyramid Running Camp we conducted this past December in Accra, Ghana: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk5AVY1n-u4&feature=youtu.be

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

Our main competition is other youth sports and fitness programs. However, the life lessons we integrate into our coaching set us apart. Furthermore, holding open road races at the conclusion of our camps gives us an edge over other camps – and the camps building up to our road races make us distinct from other races.

Another competitive advantages is Give Running's international experience. This winter break, we partnered with the NGOs iStandAbove and Witness Hope to conduct our first international Pyramid Running Camp in Accra, Ghana, along with other events. In total, we worked with more than 300 youth and 25 elite national coaches.

Give Running Founder and President Greg Woodburn was interviewed live on Ghanaian national television and has already received invitations to return.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since 2006, Give Running has collected, cleaned, and donated more than 12,000 pairs of running and athletic shoes to youth in developing countries – such as Haiti and Belize in Latin America, and Liberia and Uganda in Africa – as well as local inner-city communities.

I would like to bring this impact home through a story. There are two brothers in Southern California who had a single pair of shoes between the two of them that were too small for the older brother and too big for the younger brother. The shoes were falling apart to the point that duct tape held them together. The brothers alternated days wearing the worn-through shoes so they could attend school. Thanks to Give Running, each brother now has his own pair of well-fitting shoes so they can both attend school every day with confidence, take a step forward – and never stop running.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

My vision for Give Running includes youth running clubs based around our various chapters, creating the additional opportunity for volunteers to pay forward their passions by coaching the next generation. I am launching the first youth running club in inner-city Los Angeles because I already have a strong relationship with the USC Athletic Department as a student-athlete. What is more, I already have experience with coaching and managing such a program. I donate Give Running training shoes and racing spikes to the South Los Angeles Jaguars, a youth track team created by two Los Angeles police officers to provide a positive alternative for the youth they at times previously found sprinting and jumping to evade them on the tough inner-city streets. I will also expand our network of chapters.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Out barriers include getting initial customers and then leveraging these relationships to get return customers and referrals to scale. Because of the my expertise gained from experiences as a youth club runner to being a four-year member and senior team captain of the USC Track & field Team, our initial camps have been Pyramid Running Camps targeting long distance runners training for cross-country and track. However, this philosophy and model are readily scalable to sports such as basketball and soccer through hiring the counselors with the proper experience and knowledge in these sports. I will use my existing contacts with the local youth club running teams and neighborhood schools to reach our initial customers and their families.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

My journey in social entrepreneurship began not with a business plan, but rather when nothing went according to plan. I have been a competitive distance runner since elementary school, even competing in numerous youth national championships; as a high school freshman, however, I suffered a hip stress fracture and was sidelined for my sophomore year as well. Devastated by my injuries then, today I consider them true blessings. They made me realize how deeply I love running and all it has given me: improved health, confidence, camaraderie. I empathized with underprivileged kids who couldn't enjoy running – not because of injury, but because they could not afford running shoes.

I turned adversity into opportunity by creating Give Running in October 2006. My initial goal was to collect, clean, and donate 100 pairs of running shoes by Christmas; this snowballed into more than 500 pairs by Christmas, and has since become an international avalanche as we now hold camps and events globally.

Rather than taking a "lone wolf" mentality towards tackling pressing social issues, we believe in a "wolf pack" approach that fosters collaboration with those who have similar missions and visions. In the past, this has included jointly holding clinics and races; sponsorships; and simply brainstorming with peers to benefit each other with fresh, outside perspectives on organization strategies.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Já parou pra pensar como vivemos em uma sociedade que tem discursos bonitos mas atitudes individualistas?Já parou para pensar que vivemos em um mundo conectado mas com laços humanos fragilizados?Já percebeu que as oportunidades não são democráticas:nem todos tem acesso a elas?E quanto a educação?Já parou pra pensar como a educação está enfraquecida e o ambiente escolar desvalorizado?Esses problemas todos se voltam para a atitude dos indivíduos.Nós buscamos formar jovens questionadores, capazes de transformar suas realidades e, por meio da soma dessas micro-revoluções, tranformar a cultura de espectador em uma cultura de cidadãos protagonistas. Desenvolvemos oportunidades e desafios para que possam utilizar a escola como espaço de construção de uma sociedade mais justa, de um futuro melhor.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Núcleos de liderança juvenil em escolas públicas,criando oportunidade para que o jovem transforme sua realidade,de sua escola e sua comunidade. Atividades baseadas nos 4 pilares da educação(ONU):Aprender a Ser-desenvolvimento do indivíduo e suas emoções para promoção do autocuidado,autoconhecimento, equilíbrio emocional.Aprender a conhecer- abrir caminhos para universo de possíveis soluções desenvolvendo a curiosidade, visão,interação.Aprender a Conviver- promover a diversidade,o respeito e o entendimento do outro desenvolvendo a participação, cooperação, empatia, comunicação.Aprender a agir- desenvolver competências como liderança, empreendedorismo, energia, responsabilidade para o exercício da cidadania plena e solução de problemas coletivos.Essas habilidades são estimuladas por meio de oficinas(2 vezes por semana)e desafios que acontecem durante um ano.Para que o processo de aprendizagem seja ainda mais efetivo,jovens assumem responsabilidade de multiplicar oficinas nas escolas.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Organizados em grupos de 5 alunos representantes por escola, jovens de 13 a 17 anos participam,2 vezes por semana, de capacitações e multiplicam nas escolas.As oficinas são preparadas por monitores juvenis (jovens que participaram do projeto no ano anterior e se destacaram).Os temas das oficinas buscam desenvolver habilidades de liderança alicerçados nos pilares da educação como por ex:comunicação facilitadora,valores,política,cidadania,empreendedorismo, sexualidade.Para colocar em prática os conceitos aprendidos, lideram desafios no decorrer do ano *Oásis Educar-(metodologia do Instituto Elos) adaptada para que o jovem possa reconhecer as belezas locais da comunidade e identificar um sonho coletivo para realizá-lo junto a comunidade.Projeto na Escola: Propor um projeto de melhoria da escola e colocá-lo em prática.A negociação com professores, mobilização de alunos e recursos nos dois desafios é de responsabilidade dos jovens.Catavento de Letras:atividades de estímulo à leitura e escrita com o objetivo de estimular curiosidade e formar senso crítico.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

O projeto que começou como uma iniciativa da empresa hoje tem parceria com secretaria municipal e diretoria estadual de educação. Já passaram pelo projeto mais de 2500 jovens. Desde 2006, com a metodologia de multiplicação nas escolas, atendemos indiretamente um público de cerca de 1600 alunos que recebem as capacitações de nossos multiplicadores. Anualmente, cerca de 20 escolas envolvidas no projeto.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Pretende-se sempre ampliar o impacto nas escolas por meio da multiplicação.
Estreitar vínculo com a gestão e o adulto responsável pelo projeto na escola e mobilizar jovens participantes para que mobilizem equipes cada vez mais sólidas permitindo que o impacto indireto aumente. Considerando a possibilidade de transformar nosso material em uma metodologia a ser compartilhada (através de uma plataforma colaborativa de capacitação),com reeditores do projeto aplicando as técnicas em sua comunidade, teremos um impacto ainda mais positivo, tornando a metodologia acessível para outras regiões do país.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

O relacionamento com a gestão escolar é fundamental. Quando não há um engajamento, a realização da multiplicação nas escolas não tem tanto sucesso. Assim, propomos desenvolver atividades no decorrer do ano para estreitar vínculo e nos aproximarmos dos responsáveis pelo projeto em cada escola. Em relação a multiplicação da tecnologia, estamos formatando o material e o desafio é democratizar o conteúdo. Porém, nosso desafio é além de compartilhar o conteúdo acompanhar o uso desse material sem engessá-lo. Ser uma ferramenta de inspiração e não de formatação.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

A família Pascoal realizava com frequência doações para diversas instituições e decidiu, em 1989, canalizar investimentos na promoção da Educação na Cidadania. Assim surgiu a Fundação Educar DPaschoal. Na crença de que todo cidadão é um agente transformador, a ideia do programa Academia Educar sempre buscou despertar em jovens a importância da participação social, do protagonismo. No início, limitado a capacidade de um prédio próprio. Logo, a iniciativa saiu dos limites do prédio e passou a permear o poder público a partir da parceria com escolas.Nossa dedicação e investimento , além de formar líderes, passou a possibilitar a valorização do ambiente escolar e a percepção do jovem como agente social podendo, durante a vida escolar, exercitar cidadania e fazer da escola, ambiente de transformação. Nossa busca mais do que descoberta de soluções,é despertar lideranças juvenis para que estes, em suas realidades, encontrem soluções coletivas e promovam cidadania.

Por favor, explique de que forma o estabelecimento de parcerias é importante para o sucesso de sua inovação

Parceiros com sinergia permitem explorar novos mundos, novas soluções e possibilidades para as atividades que desenvolvemos o que torna as oficinas dinâmicas e atraentes. Além disso, é importante engajarmos outros (cidadãos ou empresas) no processo de estímulo a cidadania e valorização da educação. Essas parcerias acabam reduzindo a necessidade de aporte financeiro em algumas situações o que é também um viabilizador do projeto.

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

Para a parte estratégica e conceitual da Academia Educar temos uma pedagoga que conduz o processo de forma a estimular o protagonismo dos jovens (não fazer por eles mas inspirá-los a agir) e, fazer a ponte com as escolas entendendo suas demandas e expectativas. Para compartilhar metodologias, a proposta de plataforma virtual será desenvolvida junto a equipe que desenvolve a parte Web para DPaschoal buscando construir um espaço acessível e funcional. Anualmente, monitores juvenis (jovens destaque do ano anterior) participam ativamente no planejamento e realização das atividades.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The study problem of children with dyslexia is the matter of the first importance for parents and teachers. If this problem cannot be improved immediately, these children may have a hard time in schools, and some of them may have some mental troubles. Suicide cases have already appeared with a 10% rate, and there are 100,000 children feeling suicidal merely in Beijing. In china, there are 15,000,000 children in great need of professional medical care to help them get rid of this disease.Our most creative idea is to construct professional improvement agencies to provide a reduced or free service to low income families to form a Cross-subsidization, and try to relief this social problem in an enterprise way.The problem of children with dyslexia in China is a serious social issue.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The plan of constructing the Community station for children with dyslexia is our prioritized development areas. Our project is aim to initiate ten community stations in the following three years in Beijing.
This pattern will help resolve the nearby school policy better, strongly spread the common sense of dyslexia disease, and elevate the improvement rate of this disease.
Our Community station will open to the community with low-cost, establish the Children's educational game center, parent-child library and parent training lectures to gain popularity and promote the brand effect.
By the establishment of parent lectures in the Community station, we can build and evoke the public awareness for dyslexia disease.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The core service objects are the parents of the children with dyslexia. The Community station can provide a one-stop service for 7-12 years old children and their parents by offering two kinds of card:
Parent card--- Chances to attend to public trainings, lectures, free access to the journals, library, and developmental games included.
Training card---Half year card and year-round card for children correction trainings included.

Lanzi researchers have engaged in many years publishing work and they found that reading can change people’s life, especially those have been involved in early parent-child intervention method for their Dyslexia problem. Then they founded the “Recognition of Dyslexia and correction intervention” research group with the assistance of HK NGO to study on this disease and teaching experimentally of it. During their teaching, they found that Dyslexia is a very serious social issue in China. There is an extremely high morbidity rate while an extremely low public awareness, which causes the children with Dyslexia are facing both mental and physical problems and may result in a hidden risk in the development of society. Then Lanzi researchers gave up their publishing work and stick to the improvement of the environment and capacity of children with Dyslexia.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Facilitate the students’ ability to see themselves as global citizens ready to take on the opportunities and challenges in our inter-connected post 9/11 world. Students must be able to make social emotional connections across cultures and even time, and relate it to their own lives. Additionally, technology can connect us to people and events around the globe. It can also shrink the world and limit experiences to text messaging and chat rooms. Our objective is to get students interested and involved in the broader world around them and to “Be the Change they Want to See in the World”.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Provide more than facts or cultural fun about countries around the world. Instead, provide a framework where students develop critical thinking skills, understand differing perspectives and global connections, practice tolerance, and exhibit fluid/flexible thinking. Meet with each K-5th grade classroom 1 x per month for 30 minutes. Cycle through the same key themes each year - Geography, Daily Life, Industry/Economics, Government, Traditions/Celebrations, Environment (Plants / Animals) and focus on current not historical topics. Choose a country from a different continent each year, so the children can literally travel around the world during their elementary years. Draw conclusions and highlight repeated themes from one country to the next. Integrate it into all parts of the school – art, music, gym, cultural arts programming, and SELAS (social emotional learning for academic success).

The January lesson was government. We focused India’s long struggle for independence. 2nd- 5th grades simulated Gandhi’s Salt March as a response to British rule. We discussed that Martin Luther King studied Gandhi’s non-violent protest methods. We also discussed different responses to colonization - the United State’s revolutionary response to the British as compared to India’s and Australia's (previous year). Students discovered that different countries and cultures can share common experiences in the struggle for basic rights and freedoms. Students have also made their own connections across time and nations, understanding parts of colonization to be like bullying in their own lives.

K and 1st grades illustrated a book about Gandhi’s life. In illustrating the British leaving India, a first grader drew a British soldier with a pointy hat and hands on hips (bully-like) as he remembered them from last year’s study of Australia. The Aborigines had drawn the British this way in cave paintings. What a great example of how students of all ages are able to make social emotional connections across cultures and even time.

SELAS week was celebrated in January also. The theme was Gandhi’s quote “be the change you want to see in the world” and focused on the importance of what we Think, Say and Do. This model was used by classroom teachers each day to discuss personal decision making and we used it to frame Gandhi’s behavior and India’s responses.

A published SEL curriculum like Lions Quest by Castle represents an easy, pre-packaged way for schools to meet the SEL standard teaching requirements. The "curriculum" is in place, but there is no guarantee that empathy, compassion and perspective are being fostered. It also represents a second order response to the problem -- identifying bullying and focusing on that behavior rather than the conditions which allow that behavior to exist in the first place. This type of SEL curriculum is also stand alone and does not integrate into other contexts or learning.

Elementary language programs allow school districts to have some cultural (international) exposure along with the language benefits. However, the SEL piece is not necessarily present as it is in a program like ours.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Our results to date are subjective. We have received overwhelming student and parent feedback, requests for the program by neighboring schools, and enthusiasm of some of the state’s top teachers and administrators. We have grown the scope of the program each year in terms of offerings and participation and integration.

In March, we began a multi-week simulation. Fourth grade classrooms will be either India or Pakistan and will attempt to research and negotiate in writing, a peaceful compromise to the Siachen Glacier conflict. The project uses many of the SELAS concepts we’ve taught for the past 5 years as well as new iPad technology the district is piloting and a custom d181 wiki. We are anxiously awaiting the results.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We would like to expand this thinking and the process to all the schools in the district and then potentially expand on a state and/or national level. We have been speaking at local and district level events and hope to speak at a state conference in the fall.
We are currently working on a way evaluate the cultural awareness and problem solving skills of Monroe students versus other students in the district that have not participated in our program.

Our hope is that the students are more tolerant and understanding of themselves and each other. In particular our message this year has been that you must change what you think before you can change what you say and do.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Basic curriculum structure and limited hours in the school day could also limit the implementation of the program as districts are forced to conform to mandated ways of filling the school day. We are meeting with district administrators as well as teaching teams to strategize ways to best integrate these ideas and concepts into the regular curriculum as well as provide stand alone teaching opportunities.

As we expand, we will need to train others to deliver the content. Personnel issues and quality control will be key. Workshops and training sessions will need to be implemented.

In the classroom, students started making connections themselves – month to month and year to year. It wasn't about what we were saying, doing or planning, but how they were internalizing and applying the lessons. At the same time, we began speaking at School Board and District meetings. Organizing these presentations forced us to put words to our actions. We help children see and tolerate multiple view-points from an individual to a national level. We all face the same basic issues every day – just on a different scale. The power of this program is to provide students the global perspective and reasoning skills needed to THINK, SAY and DO and be the “change they want to see in the world”.

The curriculum is written and taught by Chris Callahan and Danica Turner-Carden. A committee of parent volunteers are available to assist with materials, skits, etc.

Depending on the teaching model going forward, parent volunteers would be needed to teach or professionals would need to be hired to deliver content. This is best accomplished by a small team – 2 people. Larger committees of volunteers should be available to support the teaching team.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In about 60% of the 3,000 street harassment incidences submitted to Hollaback!, the person being harassed reports that witnesses existed – but failed to act. In a content analysis of these stories that is now being performed by Cornell University, the initial findings show that positive bystander responses made street harassment more likely to cease, but positive bystander responses were extremely rare. Street harassment has historically been normalized and underreported. As a consequence, most lack empathy towards victims and feel that intervening is “not their problem.”

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The “I’ve got your back” educational campaign is designed to build empathy by developing the capacity in students to emotionally connect with the feeling of being harassed or having someone they love harassed. Developed in collaboration with Green Dot, an award-winning bystander campaign based in evidence-based research, this educational campaign acknowledges the real concerns of students in intervention – including safety, shyness, and a fear of being made fun of—and teaches students to identify realistic intervention options including asking people who are harassed if they are OK, developing a distraction, or contacting authority figures. In addition, students will be invited to report their bystander interventions through our iPhone, Droid, and website in green alongside the thousands of stories of harassment already documented on the site in pink.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

An “I’ve Got Your Back” workshop is performed at Jose’s school on Monday. On Wednesday, he is walking to school when he hears someone yell, “hey baby, I want to hit that” to his classmate. He’s heard this man say things before, but he’s always felt scared to act because the man is much larger than him. This time, he keeps walking but when he and the girl are out of earshot asks her if she is OK. He offers to tell the teacher with her, and she agrees. When they get to school, they report the incident together. As it turns out, this man has been harassing several students on their way to school. The school principle addresses it by relocating the school crossing guard to the area where the man regularly harasses girls. Jose tells his story on ihollaback.org later that night. His story is posted, and the next day he receives an email saying that 327 people read his story and anonymously clicked the “I’ve Got Your Back” button in support of his actions. He feels good about what he did, and resolves to do it again. Others learn from his experience and replicate his behaviour, slowly shifting the culture that makes street harassment normalized and acceptable.

Hollaback! is the only organizational dedicated to ending street harassment internationally. The field of bystander intervention is larger, but Green Dot is one of the more widely adopted because it is based in research and is currently being studied by the CDC for it’s effectiveness. Other programs include MVP (Mentors in Violence Prevention) and UNH “Bringing the Bystander,” but neither are designed to build empathy among bystanders. To date, none of these programs have been brought to a public school environment.

The I've Got Your Back" campaign will launch on March 18th, so stay tuned!

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Year I: Program is piloted in 20 schools around the world, and 75% of the students declare after the workshops that they feel like it is "likely" or "very likely" that they will intervene the next time they witness harassment. Students tell over 100 stories of bystander intervention on ihollaback.org.

Year II: Program expands to an additional 20 schools around the world as more site leaders are trained. This year, 80% of the students declare after the workshops that they feel like it is "likely" or "very likely" that they will intervene the next time they witness harassment. Students tell over 100 stories of bystander intervention on ihollaback.org.

Year III: As bystander intervention increases internationally, the number of street harassment stories on Hollaback! begins to plateau.

After launching ihollaback.org, we were struck by the number of rapidly increasing "pink dots" on our homepage - each one representing another incident of harassment. Simply put, we found it depressing. I asked our volunteer Esty, "what could we map that is happy?" She responded, "what about when people stand up for you? That's pretty awesome." We agreed to collect these stories and map them in green dots (because green looks good with pink). I began to ask around for best practices -- and quickly learned that there was already an organization called "Green Dot" that had a similar concept, except instead of mapping they did training and curriculum development. We attended their training, hit it off, and decided to work together. They have spent $20k in staff and travel to date on this collaboration.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

St Mary’s School believes in the transforming nature of education. We see that there is an overwhelming need to nurture next generation citizens who understand and celebrate the diversity of humanity. The challenge is to build a rights based democratic environment that would grow a student body of not just the typical student, but also one who would be sensitive, inspired and empowered.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We identified the barriers to inclusion in the school and worked towards reorganizing obstacles such as i) fee, (ii) infrastructure, (iii) pedagogy and (iv) assessment so as to allow children with different abilities to be part of the education system of the school. Every teacher was required to rethink her understanding of effective pedagogy and evaluation. This in turn led to an understanding of how perceptions both create and destroy difference. This changing perceptions required the school to widen its ambit of influence drawing both parents and community closer. We appreciated and encouraged partnerships, even worked towards changing legislation in our journey towards opening doors, opening minds and creating ever widening choices to everyone regardless of ability, wealth or gender

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The School, over time has expanded its area of impact and reach in order to make a difference and change mindsets.
Opening Doors: We consciously removed barriers that exclude some children from admission and admitted into the mainstream classroom children who were economically, physically and mentally challenged. The infrastructure and fee structure was changed to ensure that they were not barriers to inclusion.
Opening Minds: We found that we had to work at changing policy, pedagogy and evaluation to ensure that children with challenges received as equitable a quality education as the typical child. We fought and won a Public Interest Litigation against the CBSE which gave children with disability and specifically the visually challenged a level playing field in the Board examinations. The Board was required by the court to provide papers in Braille as well as a writer, appropriate technology and match rubrics and content to evaluation objectives within a rights based perspective.
Expanding Choices: Winning the PIL ensured that not just our children but all children of India, regardless of ability, were given a choice of evaluation practices as well as subjects. It opened the doors for teachers and schools to open their minds and exercise their choices.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The impact of our movement from mainstream schooling to an inclusive setup has resulted in a multiplier effect, initially and immediately on students of the school and subsequently in an ever widening ripple to parents community and neighbourhood. Students who have passed out have in turn impacted policy and people because of their experiences in school. We have touched the lives of every differently abled child in the country, that takes the Board examination, through the Public Interest litigation which we won. Students of the school have fought to conserve an ancient water body “Neela Hauz” which in turn has impacted the lives of the people of Vasant Kunj Delhi. The activism of the school has encouraged it to start vocational classes, night shelter programs and a Hunger Project.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The success of our programs in St Mary’s and its neighbouring communities have encouraged us to expand our work to new regions and accept new challenges. The school is now looking to start a community owned and run school in Orcha, in Madhya Pradesh, the Betwa School. Orcha situated in the Bundelhand region is an area which needs the kind of processes that we’ve had success with. We believe the people of Orcha could benefit from interventions which will in turn open even more doors and minds. The project will also empower students of the school who will participate in the program.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

We’ve noticed that mindsets and policy take particularly long to change. Besides the attitudinal change we are building, the personnel required for our programs require great dedication to sustain it. The number of quality people required in turn asks for programs that will generate such people. The way forward is to partner with even more institutions that can help us answer new challenges and sustain the passion and momentum of the present. As a program we feel that we need to be positive and looking at the long term and to challenge ourselves to rethink strategy at crucial moments.

It would be wrong to say that we ever saw the movement as a potential to change the world.
When we first opened our doors to Komal Gupta, a fifteen year old child with cerebral palsy, around twenty years ago, we never thought it would be a life changing act. Komal, an extremely intelligent child trapped in a body that couldn’t move too much or speak very well, bought out the best in all of us. He did well in school and went on to be the first challenged child at St Stephen’s college Delhi. Our ‘Aha’ moment was when we saw how petty our ideas were and when the domino effect of his success resulted in changed school buildings, students, teachers, parents and community.

Selecione o estágio que melhor se aplica à solução

Inicial (um piloto que começou recentemente)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Implementado há menos de um ano

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The needs in this complex and developing country are many, but we will focus on two: 1)About 80% of our students are from expat missionary families. The parents do wonderful work, but their children (our students) have few opportunities for regular involvement. For years, we've been looking for ways for our students to become more involved in the local community. The transformation that happens inside the school needs to move outside the campus. 2)Nepali children are undervalued in their culture. If they are disabled or experiencing poverty, they are even more marginalized. Each child matters, and we want more local children to have the chance for transformation.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

A Friendship Club is a way to bridge the gap between the international KISC students and local Nepali students. We want to bring together children, first to play together and become friends, then to work together to accomplish a community-oriented project. The first class of KISC students are becoming friends with students from ABBS, one of the very few centers in Nepal for children with disabilities. As our students develop deeper relationships with their new friends, we will work towards developing a meaningful and attainable community project, perhaps something to do with play space or gardening. We want to expand Friendship Clubs with other KISC classes to other local Nepali schools using other kinds of play that easily transcends culture and language such as jumping rope, dancing or "sport cup stacking". The "power" for the relationships to lies with the children, not the teachers/organizers, using their resources of time, relational abilties and ideas to make the difference.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our main activity is building relationships through shared experiences of play. Already we have seen a positive difference in our students' attitudes about relating to someone very different from themselves. The students have made inspiring feedback comments. After only 2 visits to ABBS, our students don't want to leave their new friends. The two hours spent in each visit includes joining the ABBS morning "circle time". This consists of greeting, talking, singing and praying. Then we divide up and join in with the activity centers. I believe that the chance to do some things that are "normal" (the school structure) but in a new setting with new challenges pushes our students to really apply what they are learning in character development. They get to see the world from new eyes and new shoes. They are expressing care and concern for their new friends. It is too early to know the impact that this is making on the ABBS students, but we plan to keep the same group of KISC students involved for more than 1 year, giving opportunity for long-term relationships.

We have peers from several directions: Other groups work to help disadvantaged children. There are even a few emerging to help disabled children. The other two international schools in Kathmandu do occasional projects to benefit local schools or communities. However, Friendship Clubs is the first project that I am aware of that focuses on long-term relationships and working together on a community project. The other groups/projects doing parallel work would encourage any efforts being made by others. The climate in this sector is very collaborative and mutually encouraging.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Although we have dreamed about some type of action for years, our first Friendship Club is only 3 weeks old. However, the center we are visiting, ABBS, has been encouraged by our relationship. The leaders say it is easy to feel unnoticed, especially because they are working with children who are typically hidden in this culture. Just the fact that we have a long-term commitment to them is meaningful. Our 18 students are feeling a great amount of excitement and ownership in this venture. As a school, we are very happy to have the makings of a successful school outreach which is mutually beneficial for our students and the community. It is an authentic opportunity for leadership, character development, and social and relational change.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We hope to have at least two other KISC classes involved in Friendship Clubs, probably at different schools in our section of the city. Each of these will not only impact the students involved, but some part of the community, as their community "work" project is designed and implemented.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The political climate in this country is unstable, so we must always be ready to adjust plans to keep the children safe. There are potential cultural barriers. However, these can be negotiated if the school leaders of each school involved develop good relationships with each other. Leaving campus for the Friendship Club visits (and eventually the work project) takes time away from the normal academic schedule. Accommodations will need to be made for appropriate timetabling. As community projects emerge that require funding, we will need to look for sources for that funding.

As a school, we've done a lot of thinking about transformation and teaching what really matters. In our context of students and staff from 30 different countries, we realize that we have the potential to not only impact our students, but Nepal and the world.How can we live out the KISC values of love, grace, justice, excellence and community? This sounds so big when our students seem so small. After several years of wrestling with how to do this well,a meeting with parents struggling with their son's defiant attitude brought the need to develop empathy to the forefront. But it wasn't just this one student who needed to see the world through new eyes, many needed the challenge of breaking out of their comfort zones. I had previously visited the ABBS school and was inspired by their commitment and vision to care for Nepal's disabled children. At this moment, I knew we needed to find a way our students to get to know each other, and that would be life changing.Friendship Clubs was born.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

After 20 year of democratic development, Czech public schools in all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary) suffer. Why is that so?
- school directors lack ressources to motivate and reward good teachers due to their dependendence on the state funding
- they also lack capacities to use the capital of the schools effectively to generate profit and invest in improvements
- teachers are using frontal methods of teaching, focus on theory, they are often burnt out and undefinanced
- young people are bored in the classes, public schools are rarely or not building confidence, develop trust, empathy, teamwork, and so much needed social and entrepreneurial skills required on todays global labour market, many of them end up unemployed

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Our solution is to bring more entrepreneurial thinking into Czech public schools.
1) we want to help the schools to generate effectively their own profit and to have more freedom in investing it in their current needs - especially human ressources and pupils
2) as soon as the school optimizes its own business and and is able to generate profit, we want to create a fund from which we could finance our courses and support students projects
3) we want to coach the students to come up with their own social entrepreneurial solutions to help their school and community and coach them to initiate and realize their own projects
4) we want to include active teachers to the process so that they can learn new methods and interactive tools while cooperating on the projects to be able to coach the students themselves
5) we want to create an social network where schools and students could exchange their goog practices and fundraise for their initiatives

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The first activity to start up a school business. Step 1 - Is to contact school directors and make an analysis of 1) the most burning needs and desired investments on the school and 2) of a business potential of the school - want to have look on their social and human capital, their physical ressources (classrooms, areas to rent etc.)
In the next stage we would come up with solutions (products and services) for the school and start up with the business in order to be able to earn money for the school and pay ourselves. As soon as the school generates surplus a part of it will go to our fund (independent on the school accounting).
Step 2 - Is to start up with including students and teachers into the whole process. We would start up courses and working groups where students could learn about the current entrepreneurial activities of the school, think about its problems (or/and problems in the community) and come up with creative solutions. In the working group(s), students would start to work on their projects. Our role would be to coach the students, offer practical workshops on different soft and entrepreneurial skills and to find an optimal way of how to include teachers.
Step 3 - We would then focus on "selling" the students products and include them in the fundraising and PR activities to promote both their school and their work.
Step 4 - The money collected in our fund should serve both to support students projects and to help other schools to do the same thing and to multiply this model in the Czech Republic and who knows where else...

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There are several NGO´s trying to focus on developing entrepreneurial skills among students but they are mostly dependent on short term grants and therefore, the projects are not sustainable. Their advantages remain in close contact with the schools they cooperate with and in their long lasting experience. Nevertheless, in our model, we believe that we are coming up with an innovation that can work much better and attract many schools and their directors. Since our organisation has been cooperating with around 20 schools so far, we have a place to start up. Furthermore, we have a good financial stability thanks to our own current entrepreneurial activities (outdoor, teambuilding and soft skills activities for schools and companies) helping us to be independent on public funding.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We are still in a project idea stage. The current activities of our organisation are based in developing social and personal skills among pupils, students and teachers with a help of non-formal and experiential learning. We use socio-psychological activities and outdoor games to build up trust, empathy, improve communication skills, challenge socio-pathological behaviour (such as bullying) and build up a good working teams (instead of "classes") where students and teacher communicate openly and as partners. Since 10 years have been also helping schools to fundraise for this kind of activities that the students are often not able to pay for. So far, around 15 schools are regularly using our services and asking us for helping them to implement the innovative pedagogical methods we use into their curricula.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

This project definitely requires a long-term vision and conscious plan. In 3 years we would like to reach at least 3 schools to generate enough profit to finance the running costs of the project and to contribute regularly to the fund. We also want to have 3 social entrepreneurial programmes on these schools to their students where they could realize their own projects. We want to have started up with a fundraising platform where schools and students can present and fundraise for their projects.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

1. Insufficient and low quality of human ressources. Prevention: strong team behind, strong motivation, strong networks in the Czech Republic, skills and experience behind
2. Low interest/lack of capacities of the schools. Prevention: Designing the model in a way that would motivate school employees (director, teachers) both financially and qualitatively to devote their time and motivation to the project - to say yes.
3. Low potential of the schools to do business. Prevention: choosing the right schools
4. Legal regulations. Prevention: ongoing consulting with lawyers
5. Low interest of students. Prevention: focusing on motivation, results achievement and prestige of such a project, organising events and gatherings where students can share,present their work and feel satisfaction

Since many years we have been trying to help schools in developing entrepreneurial and soft skills among pupils and students. Due to the lack of finance, these programmes have been usually short, one-shot and therefore unsustainable both for learning objectives and for our organisation. We decided to use the idea of social entrepreneurship to help schools to earn money to finance these programmes that we offer, they want, need but often can´t afford. The state support is weak and tightening and we want to give schools more freedom. When discussing this idea with several school directors, teachers and business professionals, we realized that they like it and that they are ready to support it. We also met teachers and school directors from Danish "Production schools" and studied Norwegian concept of Entreprising Education to see the already existing practices. We believe that have capacities, enough reference and positive feedback to think, that we can make it.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

High school students often experience exclusion, a key factor in violence, poor achievement and suicide rates. A third of youth are bullied or bully others, with 85% of LGBTQ youth reporting being harassed at school. Students also experience exclusion from teachers, administrators, and structures. Students of color are significantly less likely to be in well-resourced schools, receive individual attention, and are punished more severely for more subjectively defined infractions. Unfortunately, students are poorly equipped to battle these issues. Only a third of youth have access to civic learning opportunities, which robs them of their voice and perpetuates their alienation into adulthood. In this polarized culture, we need leaders who can engage differences as strengths.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The International Institute for Sustained Dialogue (IISD) applies Sustained Dialogue (SD) in international communities, workplaces, and college campuses. SD is a 5 stage dialogue-to-action system codified by Hal Saunders, former Assistant Secretary of State. Through SD, individuals identify who to engage (stage 1), build trust and empathy by exchanging experiences (stage 2), identify root causes of issues surfaced (stage 3), brainstorm individual and collective actions (stage 4), and act where the group has courage and resources to create change (stage 5). After 30 years, in 20 international settings, 15 workplaces, and 20 college campuses, we want to support younger leaders addressing exclusion in schools. With Ashoka’s support, we will use the near-peer model of college students leading high school groups, enabling all students to gain empathy-building and civic agency skills while improving academic performance and designing community change.

“SD saved my college experience. People about whom I held such hateful prejudices became more than the one-dimensional labels I stuck on them....and the shift in my worldview that followed caused me to act and treat people differently.” -Grace, SD participant. We work with students like Grace through national summits, on-campus inclusive leadership workshops, evaluations, and weekly mentoring. After graduation, SD’s “different way of knowing” persists: alumni like Grace start SD in their Peace Corps posts and at major consulting firms, bring their conflict navigation skills to organizations like Teach for America, and alter a culture of debate as lawyers. Understanding that identity-based exclusion and violence start in childhood, we want to begin building a culture of empathy in high school, or earlier. Through our proposed pilot, two highly-trained SD college students will co-moderate a group of 10 high school students. Together, they will listen, understand, and take action. Using SD, diplomats have created peace treaties; workplaces have increased retention; and college students have amended racial profiling policies, hosted Mental Health Awareness campaigns, and created Bias Response Initiatives. Likewise, high school students will develop their own projects to tackle issues such as bullying. After the initial pilot, college and high school students will expand their reach by moderating dialogue-to-action for middle and elementary students to build an expectation and culture of empathy.

Our work is at the nexus of civic engagement, millennial leadership development, and inclusion. We join strong sister organizations in developing inclusive leaders (e.g., Interfaith Youth Corps, Intergroup Dialogue, Facing History) and collaborate with One World Youth Project, LeaderShape, EverydayDemocracy, and Youth Venture. IISD has a grassroots focus on student leadership and sustained engagement, utilizes a proven process in versatile contexts, and develops an international network of empathic youth change agents. Working together, a movement of all sister organizations could create a new norm by increasing the supply of young talent with leadership skills. We look forward to learning about more partners and kindred spirits through Changemakers.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

While students’ empathy scores are decreasing at a national level, 91% of students who went through SD reported thinking critically to improve others’ experiences. They also reported a higher willingness to speak about their identity (from 78% to 96%) and engage to change group norms (from 59% to 92%). SD’s impact is not confined to campuses, however: in Tajikistan’s SD participants’ covenants became part of the constitution. A California organization director said “Thanks to SD…we can work together in ways I never imagined possible.” At a consulting firm, 80% of employees agreed they “felt comfortable bringing their full identities to the workplace” after SD as opposed to 40% before. Given the power of SD in versatile contexts, there is every reason to see similar results in a high school pilot. Since 2009, IISD has grown from serving 600 students and professionals to 5,000 annually, readying our capacity for growth.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

From our strategic plan, IISD will directly train 3,000 youth, youth-advocates, and professionals in the next 3 years, with 36,000 individuals benefiting from the skills and concepts gained through SD. Pilot Year 1 will work with 1 site (20 college and 100 high school students). Year 2 will increase to 5 sites (100 college and 500 high school students). In Year 3, high school students will bring SD to K-8, infusing a district culture and skill-set of empathy: Given that inclusion leads to better performance and speaking up and talking to someone are the best ways to end bullying, creating a norm for building trust, finding voice, and taking action will positively impact academic and civic lives. SD provides the much-needed outlet and skills needed to walk a mile in someone else’s skin.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There are three main barriers. First, selecting and building strong partnerships with communities is integral to success. To ensure strong partnerships, we strategically select based on criteria developed over our 10+ years of lessons learned and strong partnership. Second, given the versatility and power of SD, we receive more requests for services than we can provide. Building capacity and selecting scaling partners to maintain the fidelity of the high quality program will mitigate this. Third, pursuing these milestones and equipping more youth with tools for empathic leadership requires garnering financial and human resources. We will aggressively implement our resource development plan and seek like-minded organizations to partner toward shared goals.

Hal Saunders was negotiating the Camp David Peace Accords, Egyptian Israeli Peace Treaty, and other international conflicts when he realized intractable problems dividing nations couldn’t be solved if people in those nations couldn’t communicate and relate with each other. His experiments with democracy led him to conceptualize Sustained Dialogue: five stages with a focus on building relationship while transforming communities (Tajikistan’s Sustained Dialogue Action informed the new country’s constitution)! In 1999, Princeton University students, alarmed by data repeatedly showing students of color less happy than white students, worked with Hal to adapt SD to campus. Deemed most effective student organization, SD spread to other campuses. Seeing SD’s power at every age, the next progression is for SD campuses to work with local K-12 students toward a more inclusive society. This is inspired by our participation in a high school group teaching elementary students about difference.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Youths that are immersed in this world, that is increasingly embracing capitalism, faces a threat of becoming too self-centered and materialistic. Many youths now only see education as a tool to a life of luxury in the future. However, at Envisage, we believe that education is about empowering individuals so that we can all contribute back to the growth of the society. The result of youths becoming too engrossed in a world of luxury and consumerism is an increasingly unsympathetic society, where society as a nexus of human relationships will breakdown.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Using real-life simulation games and putting youths into unfortunate situations that they would not otherwise experience, we raise the awareness of social issues among youth. This serves as a platform to unlock their inner empathy and a stepping stone towards becoming a social changemaker.

We also use a series of workshops and basic courses to impart basic social entrepreneurial skills to the youths. This will empower them to become social entrepreneurs and create a sustainable means of developing social changemakers.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our program begins from going to a school to conduct our simulation game. The playing area is the size of 2 badminton court, and there are stations, mimicking resources around the neighborhood, around the playing area. Participants will take on the role of someone from a less fortunate background and will try to make a living using resources available in the neighborhood. Through this exercise, participants will realize that some people are born into a situation that is beyond their control and it should be the duty of the more fortunate to help them escape the bad situation. In a nutshell, the main point of the first stage is to raise awareness.

The second stage of the program is the Social Entrepreneur Training Package. It is a workshop that allows participants of stage one to discuss social issues they they perceive are in existence in the society, and how they can help to eradicate the issue. In a nutshell, the second stage is about generating ideas to better the society.

The third stage involves doing a small charity business using charity push-carts, selling products made by the less fortunate, to use it as a platform for experiential learning of basic business skills.

In all, the first stage raises the awareness of social issues to the participants. The second stage then brings the participants together to discuss on ways to solve some of the perceived social problems. And finally, the third stage empowers the participant to become social entrepreneurs who can make a difference.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

The major competitors are supplementary educational training companies that provides leadership trainings and financial literacy courses for students. Currently, Envisage is the first in the market to put "the need to raise social awareness and unlock inner empathy" as the corporate mission. Envisage is able to differentiate from the other competitors as we are the only social enterprise that uses an experiential learning approach and focusing on "empathy". The major threat that these players pose is the imitation of our services. However, while the programs are easily imitable, Envisage has gathered support and networks from other social enterprises in Singapore to support and supplement each others' programs. Thus, the product offering of Envisage has widened.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Till date, we have managed to influence close to 1000 students, with a strong positive feedback from teachers of the schools that we went to. There are more upcoming training sessions in other schools as well. Generally, students who participated in the program developed a greater appreciation towards community involvement projects.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The enterprise has projected that over the next 3 years, we will be able to reach out to an additional 3000 students. Envisage is currently looking at establishing partnerships with welfare organisations, so that participants can easily sign up for voluntary work with the organisations after participating in our program. We are expecting a sign-up rate of 80% of students. Also, we are expecting to mentor or seek mentor for students who are interested in establishing their own social enterprise. We hope to at least help the growth of another 5 social enterprises over the next 3 years.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The issue of service quality could become a hinder to the brand development of the enterprise. In view of this issue, Envisage will always hold a 2 hour training program for the facilitators before the actual run.

Also, if the teachers were to perceive the program as low-value, the take-up rate would decline. In view of this issue, Envisage will be constantly revamping our products to tie in with the vision set by the Ministry of Education, Singapore.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Youth Voices is a school-based social network created in 2003 and maintained by National Writing Project teachers. We have learned a lot about how to encourage youth voices using many different media, building out of their own passions and concerns. With "authentic conversation" at the center of our mission, we have learned how to make comments and learning how to make comments central to our work with students. Our site would be richer, our students conversations more authentic, and our shared curriculum (missions and guides) might be stronger if we had more teachers and their students working with us. We are proud of our network of about a dozen teachers who use the site, but we would like to invite and include more teacher and their students to join us on this journey.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

This spring we are piloting a face-to-face study group, working with six New York City Writing Project teachers to integrate the approaches and technologies of Youth Voices into their classrooms, and to learn from these teachers what they need to make Youth Voices a more effective tool for authentic conversations and multimedia discussions. We would like to "scale across" to other local National Writing Project, and invite more face-to-face study groups to form. These would be groups of National Writing Project teachers who are amplifying their students voices on Youth Voices, and nurturing their empathetic responses to the other youths' posts they find on our social network. For years, we have been using a weekly webcast http://teachersteachingteachers.org to help coordinate, inspire, and connect teachers who are using http://youthvoices.net We would continue to do this. And we have started to use P2PU to help coordinate as well: http://p2pu.org/en/groups/connected-learning-with-youth

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Youth Voices is a school-based social network. It is a site built by the teacher-friendly Drupal shop, FunnyMonkey. Many years of design and re-design have been invested in this teacher-created tool. We are proud of it, and we have a long list of improvements waiting for financial support to all us to implement. One way the study groups will make a difference is that they will continue to help us develop a site that meets the needs of teachers and students who want to have authentic conversations based on rich, multimedia discussion posts that come from the passions, concerns and interests of individual students. But Youth Voices is also a community of teachers, mainly based in the New York Writing Project, but nationally as well. Youth Voices a way for teachers K-college to invite their students to learn in connected, empathetic ways in a trusted community of peers. We want to build this community both through online networking and through face-to-face meeting where we develop our projects together and ask questions of each other. We believe that having both a foot on the ground in local National Writing Projects and one foot in the cloud at P2PU http://p2pu.org/en/groups/connected-learning-with-youth-voices and weekly at our webcast at http://edtechtalk.com/teachersteachingteachers that we will have a strong path toward building this project into something truly amazing. Any why? For our students to have a wider audience to learn from and with. We think we can build stronger ties between teachers and their students on our already effective site, Youth Voices.

For a decade now, teachers have been experimenting with blogs in their classrooms. A couple of problems have become immediately obvious. First, how do we build a network of peers for our students to write for and to respond to? Second, what happens to these blog when our class is finished? A third concern has to do with safety and citizenship in these online spaces. We think we help to answer some of these problems with Youth Voices. When students post on a social network like Youth Voices, they are much more likely to get a response. In fact, learning to compose positive, dialogical comments is as important as anything on Youth Voices, and this addresses many of the concerns about safety. Finally,Youth Voices is an ongoing site that will be here year after year. A Student's work endures.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Dozens of teachers have been involved with the Youth Voices community since 2003 when we started, with a few of us making up the core teachers. National Writing Project teachers from Alaska and California to Utah and Colorado and from Louisiana and Mississippi and from Maryland to New York and more have found Youth Voices to be a valuable tool for their students to publish their multimedia projects and to develop a positive online presence through their work with niche groups. The teachers who have been working on this project over the past nine years have been early adopters: technology teachers, digital photography and art teachers, journalism teachers, and risk-taking English teachers. It's been an exciting journey. We've learned a lot both about how to build and maintain a social network and nurture a community of like-minded teachers. We're ready to expand this community and to invite in teachers who are looking for positive ways for their students to learn from their peers.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We hope to see local study groups in at least ten local National Writing Project Sites. Each of these sites will have a study group that will be modeled on the one we are currently building in the New York City Writing Project. This design will sustain a Youth Voices presence in these local sites because it won't depend on any particular teachers's ability to continue to work with the site. These study groups will build capacity to develop the technological and pedagogical support needed for local teachers to have their students find success as commenters and discussion post creators on Youth Voices. At the same time teachers in these study groups will find support nationally by connecting from time to time on our weekly webcast, Teachers Teaching Teachers, and on our P2PU course.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

We have found that there are many technological hurdles for teachers as they begin to see the value of using Youth Voices as often as possible. Many teachers still do not have the kind of access to computers that they would like, and there are often problems with schools blocking both Youth Voices itself and with other sites students might need to use. Having the support of a local National Writing Project and a group of teachers who might be facing similar issues should help individual teachers overcome some of these difficulties. Another area of concern has to do with how the design of Youth Voices, with its emphasis on freedom and student-generated questions and projects fits within the curriculum of particular schools. Working together we can find ways to meet those expectations too.

There have been a couple of the moments. First, about a decade ago, we realized that a few groups of National Writing Project teachers had similar blogging and cross-blogging projects in the works. It was an "Aha!" for us to realize the value of bring these projects together in one ongoing, larger network of teachers working together and students finding each other more easily. Another "Aha!" happened when we realized that the work we do face-to-face in local National Writing Project sites couldn't be replaced by the wonderful experiences of meeting online in our weekly Webcast, Teachers Teaching Teachers. Yes, that connection beyond geography has always been important, but the "knitting bee's" -- as we have compared them to -- that are our tech study groups, that meet every other week in each others schools couldn't be replaced. We have "Aha's" all the time when we come together physically AND when we meet online. We need both, we've come to understand. And our students do too.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Encouraging every child's brilliance and our own in the process!

For the children, a school environment that supports and encourages their natural interests would be a perfect setting. Dr. Montessori used the term “normalisation” for serious concentration when a child is involved in an activity that captivates them. Emerging from such flow moments, children are at peace. Similar to us being filled up in creative endeavours or nature walks or meditation. In such a state, we are at our healthiest. Children over the age of three are capable of reasoning and when they are fulfilled in daytime activities that nourish their mind and allow movement for their bodies, children are naturally helpful and open to others. Naturally empathetic.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

My belief is that activating empathy begins by educating the adults in children's lives. It all begins with healthy attachment. Erikson focused on the importance for babies to have significant relationships with a few key adults in order to develop basic trust. It has been shown that children who lack healthy attachments tend to be devoid of empathy. Many crimes in the world are conducted by those who feel no remorse.

I propose educating the adults in children's lives by offering this type of information and more through meetings and workshops at schools, maternity wards and universities through various health and environment courses. Establishing the conditions for basic trust to be felt, the child is then capable to move through higher levels of social functioning.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

When children are involved in activities that interest them, they find their joy and their peace. Children feel empowered when learning. This leads to empowered adults living empowered lives. On purpose.

My journey took me back to studying Early Childhood after a very successful Finance career. I was very drawn to Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy that we come into the world as spirits with a very clear mission. From the age of five, I would sit my dolls in a circle teaching them all that I had learned that day! This is what I am here to do, to share my learning, my very own lessons. We are all born naturally intuitive and life teaches us to perform for others. Our journey is just to remember our Truth and to have the courage to live it, inspiring others along the way...

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In today’s world we all are living or say suffering with partial consciousness or just one sided consciousness of mind. This unconsciousness of mind has raised real time trouble for us and so to our world….whether it’s social, environmental, cultural etc. This can be better redefined in terms of mind integration.
Empathy is a basic and one of the most essential ability of someone’s mind that needed to develop real consciousness within it. It enables someone to put himself into mental shoes of others and provide some realistic solutions.
The real factor that determines cultivation of conscious minds lies in what education patterns we are following because more than 95% of mind develops during student phase of life.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

It’s truly not possible to develop and then fully implement a parallel educational pattern for children everywhere and definitely it will be needed lots of resources to do that, which will promote inefficiency of resources in many terms.
Our education system has evolved very much in terms of syllabus pattern but not really in terms of teaching patterns. In our project we are targeting inefficiency and ineffectiveness of persistent teaching pattern which hinders consciousness of mind rather than developing it.
For the development of conscious mind we will be efficiently utilizing all the available resources like books, computers, playground and parents also, but our most effective and essential resource will be the teacher. We are working towards transforming and promoting shifts in the persistent teaching patterns.
Our mission is to ensure committed involvement of teachers in activating empathy within the students-and so in the development of real conscious minds for our society.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We will develop activities and certain teaching patterns which will promote consciousness of minds and help them to activate empathy.
1: Separate behaviour from person:
Emotions can’t be taught but caught...so teacher should present themselves as a role model. In fact Teachers should not look their work as a chore at all; because their job is like an artist who shapes the student’s mind forever.
The activity is about providing teachers counselling and training over how their behaviour, demeanour and usual disposition and also their wise choice of words within the class can make real difference in addressing the major problem like bullying, aggression, indifference etc. among students.
For example: Instead of addressing children as good and bad person teachers should specifically address them for their good and bad behaviours or actions.
2. Making learning significant: It is said that knowledge can be imparted but wisdom cannot.... So learning is truly complete for a student only when if he can experience: What S/he is learning about, why it is important for him to learn it, who’s life can be effected ,when/where and how lessons learned are effectively applicable in their real life.
In our project with the involvement of teachers we will develop and promote adoption of activity based learning (ABL) for every subject, which will allow students to find and also to develop their own answers through their own experiences to all 5 Ws and 1 H.
It will defiantly nurture wisdom within the student and this is how the learning will become truly significant.

Ours is a young project and we are shifting to execution phase very soon so as for now we are not looking forward at anyone as competitors.
Although there are many government and non-gov-organizations in India already working towards developing potential and skills of teachers by providing them basic short term skill trainings but they are just working on them but not with them.
Our project is about working with teachers and educators and about enabling them to nurture best in their students
Rather than focusing too much on developing and providing techniques and patterns which just appear very unique we are working towards developing and providing the most significant and sustainable ones. We want to bring impact to maximum teachers and students irrespective of their demography.

It will definitely transform things from many ways like teachers will start taking their teaching more as a creative work instead of just as a chore because it is more about shaping minds rather than just imparting knowledge.
So within the time span we will able to add many fully conscious minds in our society who will be the solution provider rather than by-standers.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Major Barrier is ensuring involvement of teachers because they might act over obsessed with their own teaching pattern because they are already comfortable in following conventional methods with which they are teaching.
We strongly needed dedicated volunteer base which will efficiently perform the tasks given to them.
Other greatest barriers are promotional and financial one because we lack in financial base and so it can hinder project greatly in ensuring full dedicated staff /volunteers to perform research and execution tasks.
To overcome our barriers we are looking forward to join hands with volunteer resource organizations which can provide us paid volunteers, it will cater our essentially required human resource without any financial over burden.

In all our human existent of thousands of years on earth the present time and situations are consider as most fragile. Either its acceleration in social and cultural collapse or rampant environmental degradation, the irresponsible human activities have threatened sustainability of life on earth to a great extent.
One of the major reasons behind the persistent irresponsible behaviour among individuals is lack of basic abilities like empathy which enables any individual to feel relativity and relevance.
Ashoka’s initiative to provide platform through creating competition on ‘Activating Empathy’ for social organizations and individuals who are working or willing work on promoting empathy among others was an ‘Aha!’ moment for us and hope for everyone like us. Though it’s a competition but it is indeed a great platform to share and learn through each other’s experiences and also truly a great platform to spread empathy among each other.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

However, the access to education in the country has been increased but quality and learning and their relevancy has been a major concern in children's education. The chalk and talk and rote memory methods of teaching learning have been stopping to sprout children's potentialities. Thus, in majority communities throughout Nepal, teaching has been happening, but learning has taken place very little in-terms relevancy. The result of this absence of an ‘educational culture’ has resulted in many negative societal effects in growing children. The ‘respect for the child's own cultural identity, language and values’–are still lacking in Nepalese communities.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

5. To address the problems, we need to be able to make school children think from others perspective. For this, the school children are given opportunity to reflect themselves. They are equipped with the skills to be descriptive rather than judgmental. For this, we make use of the formal and informal education modalities. In formal education, the classroom transformation is emphasized; Teachers are given opportunity to incorporate interactive teaching learning, dramatization, inspirational stories, reflective role plays, etc. And children are given opportunities to enhance their social and emotional life skills through informal education. Children together conduct project work, exploring issues and problems to other peers, sharing the sticky and cheerful moments, publishing their reflections and community action for positive change

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

The modality we use is holistic improvement of individual school, treating as per their need and problem. The participation of stakeholders are the crosscutting theme in the process of intervention so the stakeholder together develop individual school objective oriented program plan and implement strategically like The whole stakeholders community form quality circles consisting of representative of school management committee, Children, teachers and parents. Each quality circle are responsible each theme of the programme. Some of them are responsible for soft ware like improvement of classroom teaching learning and some of them are hardware. like construction, maintenance, some are with children's non formal education etc. Then, the intervention starts working parallelly with the teachers, parents, SMC and children. The teachers’ gets direct trainings and workshops in order to support the children’s empathy development, parents awareness, SMC strengthening, children forming groups like child clubs for development of their life skills through non formal education also goes simultaneously, so it creates synergy to bring positive change in children's schooling.
In this programme all the stakeholders and key players are oriented to make them aware of and supportive to the empathy development and its value. This is to elicit support and initiate with momentum.

With the shared common goals we are working in the community with different organizations and individuals. The other organizations working for similar reason are World Vision International Nepal, Action Aid international Nepal, Save the Children and so on. Our strength among all of them is our ability to make link between practice and policy. We deal individual school development with having regular follow-up where as others do event wise. The way we can integrate our effort from teacher education to parents and take advantage from it for children's life skills development is another strength that differentiates us in the market.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The decline of empathy in our society can fracture relationships and erode the level of respect, kindness and acceptance that we show towards others. With the current state of our global economy, recent natural and man-made disasters around the world, and growing cynicism and discontentment with life, it is surprising that our media focus has become increasingly more negative. In the US, we seem to be so fascinated with bad behavior that negative role models have taken over mainstream media. This negative influence can have a detrimental effect on every life, and every aspect of our lives. We are committed to reversing this trend to heal our nation and the world.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

We are determined to inspire a new wave of positive leaders, innovation, collaborative teams and community engagement. We plan to host a contest to challenge students to brainstorm ways that they can bring positive impact to those in need within their communities. Each project team must develop their charitable ideas, determine reasonable incentives, market their project to raise funds and execute on their plans. In return, the students and schools gain respect, reward and recognition from our program, our site members, the schools and communities they’ve helped, and the rest of the world. All project participants earn recognition and rewards through our Circle of Good™ program. Winning projects earn additional recognition, rewards and prizes. To incentivize donors, we also recognize and reward donors and supporters for their participation in the GOT BRAGGING RIGHTS® Circle of Good™. Our goals: Making it cool to be good. Shifting focus towards positive role models. Promoting empathy.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

We plan to host a competition to engage students, schools and communities across the US to bring positive impact into the world. Participating high schools would form project teams (including at least one student, one teacher/advisor and one parent) to develop their project ideas and determine a minimum budget. Once accepted, the project would be published on our site and the project owner (schools) will earn reward points and status in our Circle of Good™ online community. Like any school fundraiser, the project team would provide incentives to donors (tangible items are offered for different donation levels). Members who donate also earn reward points and status. Using an all-or-nothing model, the exchange of incentives for donations are only completed if pledges meet or exceed the minimum budget for the project. If successful, the school would receive their funds (minus fees), of which 10% will automatically be budgeted to benefit their students. The remaining funds would be used to execute their community projects to help those in need. Besides donations, any member can vote for their favorites and the most loved and most successful projects win additional prizes. This program challenges and incentivizes teams to become engaged with their community, innovative in project creation, responsible in project management, and collaborative with others. Everyone who participates, can benefit from this project. This is our way of recognizing and rewarding positive student role models, teaching empathy and fueling a wave of good.

Challenging students to do good isn’t necessarily a novel concept, but we’re excited to see a growing number of peers prioritizing this important agenda. Our approach to incentivize participation: We plan to tap into the competitive spirit in students and elevate positive game changers to celebrity status.

Crowdfunding sites are a relatively newer approach to fundraising but there are already a lot of competitors in this space. We are the only site that brings the crowd to crowdfunding with the Circle of Good™ community that we’re already building. We are also taking fundraising a step further by incorporating our Member Rewards program and contest prizes. Our concept: Everyone who contributes a little to the Circle of Good™ gets a lot in return.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

While we are still working on our beta site and will need funding to launch the school fundraiser competition, initial feedback for our concept has been nothing but positive. Students, teachers and parents as well as community leaders, companies and celebrities all seem to be excited about participating in our Circle of Good™ program and our school fundraiser contest idea. We believe that this could translate to a significant positive impact in society.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

My company’s goals are to re-connect, re-engage, re-build communities around the nation and around the world. After launching the school fundraiser contest in the 1st year, we believe we can sustain future rounds of contests and reach increasingly wider audiences. We plan to steadily increase participation and community engagement as well. Within the next 3 years, we hope to make a small but significant shift in who our students recognize as role models. Rather than stealing headlines for bad behavior, why not compete to be good?

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Our greatest barrier is funding: While we’ve already overcome the initial funding challenges faced by startups, building additional site functionality and providing contest awards will require additional funding. Beyond the initial launch, administrative fees collected in the first round of fundraisers are expected to sustain the cost of future contests.

Another barrier is marketing and promotion: Our limited budget prevents us from launching an expensive advertising campaign. We are overcoming this barrier by utilizing our growing social network. We’re confident that we can reach a wide enough audience to support our initial contest through a word-of-mouth campaign over social media.

A few years ago, I noticed a disturbing trend in our society. As life became more challenging, tempers were growing shorter, bad behavior was taking over, trust was slipping away, and people were beginning to look out more for themselves than coming together to help one another. When my own life became filled with tragedy, I felt surrounded by negativity and struggled to find positive interactions and influencers from anyone other than my own inner circle. To help myself heal and to heal the world around me, I knew I needed to act. I needed to do something to bring about a major shift in the way we interact with one another. Rather than be swept away by the torrent of negativity, why not start a wave of good instead? I wanted people to be proud of helping someone, to celebrate in other people’s success, and to recognize and reward everyday role models for the great things that they do. I created Got Bragging Rights® to remind everyone that it’s okay to be proud of doing something good.

The feeling of worthlessness among schoolchildren, the pressure to succeed, the shame at being 'slow-learners', the pressure of examinations and results leading to suicides.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

- The key to addressing the problem is that children need to first experience attitudes which are respectful of them and their needs, feelings, and emotions. We give what we recieve. Experiencing and reflecting is neccessary for internalising and making positive changes. A few steps would include:
- Taking the children on a journey of discovering self-worth, leading to an appreciation of emotions, skills, attitudes and behaviours which are usually not recognised and valued.
- Encouraging children to express their inner-most thoughts, feelings, fears and urges in a safe, non-judgmental and supportive manner.
- Using real life and play situations to exhibit, evaluate and reflect on one's values which guides one's thoughts, words and deeds .

- Life skills is a closely linked concept which has been adapted by different schools and NGOs and has been promoted by the World Health Organisation. But the focus here is on 'skills' and less on 'feelings'. But they are deeply linked, and guiding all of these is one's values. The challenge is in integrating them to facilitate reflection on one's values. Targetting skills could lead to certain behavioural changes, targetting feelings and emotions could lead to certain attitudinal changes, however targetting values in which emotions, skills, attitudes and behaviours are an integral part, could lead to more holistic changes.

The greatest change in my thoughts happened when we (my wife and I) began to home-school our child. We began home-schooling, because our little one hated school. When asked what is the best thing she liked about school, she would invariably reply, 'coming back home'. So, we took the plunge and began home-schooling her. Once we began, we realised it was not just the academics or the style of teaching which made the difference, but it was the very way we interacted with the child which influenced how she felt, reacted or behaved. The starting point was being more respectful to the child and her thoughts, feelings and desires. The more we did this, the more we saw change happening and 'learning' was a natural by-product. We began to see that a joyful, respected child who saw and experienced positive, healthy interactions would bloom in the most extra-ordinary way.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Girls’ Respect Groups builds respect for self and others and decreases bullying. Supporting girls in the crucial middle and high school years, GRG builds empathy as it encourages girls to know and respect one another as individuals and human beings. The result: more acceptance of others and much less bullying. GRG influences the entire school community. Girls and boys grounded in self-respect treat others with respect and are less likely to be bullies, targets, or bystanders to bullying. Girls’ Respect Groups solves the bullying problem at its root.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Girls’ Respect Groups is unique. It’s led by girls for girls (fully supported by adults). GRG is a beautiful opportunity for high school girls to lend a helping hand back to middle school girls – in support, encouragement, and empathy, sharing their experience and perspective. It’s a chance for high school young women to re-evaluate respect in their own lives and relationships. It’s also a unique opportunity for teen girls to be respected for their contribution to their communities, at a time in life when teens are much more likely to be disrespected. GRG provides anchoring for both groups of young women – and the boys around them.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Girls’ Respect Groups contains two programs. The 12-week GRG High School Leadership Training Program trains GRG Teen Leaders to run the 6-week GRG Middle School Program for preteens. The GRG book, a step-by-step guide to both programs, is readily available at booksellers. The GRG website provides free materials and connects our leaders worldwide.

In the words of our graduates, their parents, and teachers:

“It’s been easy to use GRG materials to supplement our existing girls’ program. GRG has helped our middle school girls respect themselves and others. It’s had an influence throughout the school. Our girls are learning to advocate for themselves, own their voice, have empathy, respect, and acceptance for all." … Middle School Teacher

"GRG taught me so much about myself! You need to gain confidence & self-respect before you can embody what respect means. GRG has forever changed me." … GRG Teen Leader, 16 yrs

"My daughter's involvement as a GRG Teen Leader has been a tremendous, enriching, life-altering experience for her, the benefits of which she will realize her whole life. … Parent Of A GRG Leader

"GRG is a chance for teens to turn heads for the right reasons!"… GRG Teen Leader, 15 yrs

We welcome, as collaborators, the wealth of existing girls’ programs. Bullying, lack of empathy, and lack of respect for self and others are problems too big to be solved by any one group or program. We must have a larger, collaborative view, leveraging and customizing existing resources. Our flexible, fee-free approach to sharing GRG materials makes us unique. In fact, many girls’ programs have incorporated some or all of the GRG materials and activities into their preexisting structure. GRG’s biggest challenge is finding sufficient time and money to make ourselves known in the wider community.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Girls’ Respect Groups girls recognize respect in action (and lack if it), choose relationships based on mutual respect, stop seeking “frenemy” relationships, stand up for the rights of others, offer acceptance to others who are new or different, and provide a role model for younger girls. Graduates of the GRG program often remain in contact with us after graduating, telling us how GRG has helped them make positive new friendships in university and work. Girls grounded in self-esteem from GRG seek out and are able to meet the challenges they face in the next stage of their lives. It has been life changing for many GRG participants – an opportunity to press the “reset” button on respect and to move forward with strength and resilience.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The Girls’ Respect Groups program continues to spread throughout North America and beyond, to an international audience (41 countries, Google Analytics). With the publication of an internationally-available book about the program (available on Amazon.com, .ca, .co.uk, .it, .fr, .es, and other international locations), girls around the world (and the people who love and support them) are empowered to create and run their own Girls’ Respect Groups.

For individual girls, GRG continues as a lifelong influence. The foundational skills learned from GRG encourage girls at every stage of life to build networks of supportive relationships and make positive life choices.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Funding that secures Girls Respect Groups’ financial self-sufficiency is our biggest challenge. Funding would be used to prioritize the expansion of new and existing program resources, including translation of GRG materials into additional languages.

The continuing commitment of adults is necessary to establish the GRG program in their schools and communities. While initial interest often comes from the girls themselves, support is required from adults at both middle and high school levels. Programs like GRG require both time and emotional support – there’s no quick solution to important social problems. The effort is worth it. Our results speak for themselves.

In the words of GRG creator Lorna Blumen (www.LornaBlumen.com): “I’ve been a children’s bullying prevention specialist for nearly 20 years. Over time, I’ve realized that underlying all bullying is lack of respect – for self and others. I frequently mentor teens, who help me in my workshops for adults who work with kids (parents, teachers, mental health professionals, etc). In 2005, a wonderful book, Respect: A Girl’s Guide To Getting Respect & Dealing when Your Line Is Crossed, by Macavinta and Vander Pluym (Free Spirit Publishing), inspired my group of teens to create Girls’ Respect Groups, featuring Respect as the key reading resource blended with a diverse range of creative and fun activities. GRG is a positive and preventive way to stop bullying, with so many additional benefits.”

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

A problem we need to solve in our community is the disconnect children feel to their community. Drop out rates are a problem. Gangs are a problem. Drugs are a problem. Break down of family units is a problem. Poverty is a problem and the cycle of poverty needs to be broken. We need to activate within children their power to influence change. We need to activate their empathy so that when they walk around their Flatbush community they honestly see the problems and work for ways to make positive changes. We need to open their hearts and minds through wriiting and deeply connect them to the issues that will influence their choices and their opportunities. Our children need to feel empowered and Compassionate Classrooms is doing just that in many amazing ways.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Compassionate Classrooms is a Service Learning philosophy, within our school. With guidance and support from their teachers, students: promote/organize fundraisers; educate the school and greater community on community needs and health issues by visiting classrooms, attend Parents Association meetings and create podcasted Public Service Announcements and media advertising campaigns. In addition, students write: original Anti-Bullying raps/plays, letters of comfort, gratitude, and heartfelt persuasive outreach letters to our local community to ask for and thank them for their support of our philanthropic efforts. Our solution will include joining forces with the Christopher Rose Community Empowerment Campaign (CRCEC). Their mission is to fight youth violence by raising community awareness. We will use the funding from this grant to make mini grants that will be student approved at PS 119 in conjunction with community student leaders nominated by CRCEC:

http://crcec.org/?page_id=5.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our current solution makes a difference and joining with CRCEC will empower the children as they take ownership of the distribution of this grant and in turn make their own mini grants to groups they deem are in need. Children have the power to be advocates and activists. The solution that I am most proud of implementing is teaching children how to write heartfelt persuasive outreach letters. Their letters help to raise over 1000 pounds of pennies, which equals $1500. This money will be used to make mini grants, which are student approved and researched. In a survey post this persuasive writing unit Jalen was asked: How does it feel to know that through writing you have the power to persuade and change lives? His response: “Ever since I was smaller than I am now, I always wanted super powers. Now I figured out I have super powers to change lives, just not in the way I expected." I believe joining with CRCEC will give our students the “super powers” they need to change lives in our community. I see our students working with CRCEC to discuss community needs and work to find ways to help out and provide grants in much the same way as they roundtable with their Penny Harvest funds. Students leaders will research issues with the help of CRCEC and determine ways to use the funding. We will accept proposals and discuss the pros and cons and meet with the particular groups who request funding. Please check out our Anti-Bullying work:

I do not see any competitors in the area of Compassionate Classrooms. I do believe our school is at the forefront in NYC for cultivating empathy by joining forces with local non-profit:Christopher Rose Community Empowerment Campaign (CRCEC). Their organization formed as a result of the death of founder Sharon Rose's son Christopher who was an innocent victim and violently killed in our neighborhood. The Christopher Rose Community Empowerment Campaign seeks to fight youth violence by raising community awareness and creating solutions by offering positive alternatives. I do not see competitors but I will look for allies to share our insights and grow our vision to make a better NYC and world.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The impact of teaching children to write under the umbrella of Compassionate Classrooms has taught children to revise their writing because they care about the causes they are writing about. In conversations with classroom teachers this skill and thoughtfulness has transferred to other subjects. Writing outreach letters to gain support for our local food pantries and seeing that these letters actually persuaded people to join us made a huge impact on the children. Recently a 10 year old young man said, "I have the outreach letter...but I want to revise it." As per Sharon Rose of CRCEC: "Over the past five years there have been several cohorts of elementary school children who have developed an appreciation for the value of humanity in the social spectrum. This is been demonstrated by the increasing awareness of social issues and their willingness to address and challenge some of the more pervasive root causes of social inequity and its impact on human behavior and societal outcomes."

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

As we look to make our students, college and career ready the skills they are learning will take them to the next level. My dream is that every child leave our school with a cover letter; resume and a letter of recommendation based on the real contributions they have made to their community. Sharon Rose of CRCEC states: We project that through our partnership with PS 119 we will be able to raise cultural awareness within the community to be more responsive to issues by involving youth in a hands on way to address community needs. Currently there is a disconnect between youth and the general community as it relates to aspects of education, civic engagement and the expending of resources as seen though their lens.The project will lead to community collaboration and decreased conflicts.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Some of the barriers to bridging this divide would be in the amount of autonomy allowed for both access to resources and as well as access to the community outside of normal school hours. This of course is addressed in the governance that is established by the project which proposes to use the youth council model to facilitate the decision making process related to access to and expenditure of resources. Additionally, partnering with CRCEC will provide direct access to the community even during off hours and will ensure front line access to services and resources that are relevant to community. Moreover, this will facilitate dissemination of information at the community level and allow issues to remain on the front burner to be addressed.

My personal "Aha!" moment came when I was reading the paper and I read that Christopher Rose's family created a legacy organization to keep Christopher’s memory alive by reaching out to combat violence in our community. As a first year Penny Harvest Coach I decided to run a “Pennies For Christopher” campaign and that year we donated all of our pennies to the CRCEC. We invited Sharon Rose to a special award ceremony and presented CRCEC with $1000. To quote Sharon Rose: I experienced a wonderful outpouring of love, concern and compassion for me and my family which was motivated by Mrs. Beretta telling students the story of how my son was killed. The students wrote letters, poems, raps and drew pictures expressing their concern for what my family had gone through and was experiencing. This was the beginning of a solid relationship between me and PS 119. Since then, we have become family and I have been looking for ways that we can work together. Changemakers will cement our relationship

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Statistics show that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will be abused in their lifetime.

However staggering these statistics may be, they are not completely accurate. Thousands of victims of domestic violence remain silent due to fear, embarrassment, and instability. Thousands more of these cases go unnoticed because of a lack of education. Domestic violence affects millions, yet it is only brushed upon in high school health classes. Many believe that only physical and sexual abuse count as actual abuse, and that men cannot be victims. Our goal is to bring awareness to students to ensure they recognize the many kinds of abuse that exist, and that they understand that anyone can be a victim.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

To bring awareness to domestic violence, I decided to go to the youth. I speak to various health classes and youth groups for middle and high school students, sharing my own story of abuse and those that others have shared with me. I encourage the students to participate in the presentation; as a student myself, I realize that most of the time a presenter in class is simply an excuse to take a nap. However, domestic violence is an important issue that all students need to be educated about. Therefore, I try to keep my presentations interesting, allowing the students to voice their own opinions, share their stories, and help decide the pace of the class. I also provide brochures to locations that teens frequent to ensure that they can receive the necessary information while remaining anonymous.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Although each presentation I give varies based on the response I get from the class, the typical model is the same. First, I ask the students to help me create a chart on the front board. The chart contains two columns: one of the various abusers that could be in their life, and one of the types of abuse. Although many of the students will say "anyone" when asked who can be an abuser, writing out the chart makes them think of people they wouldn't normally: coaches, doctors, cousins, and women. I also encourage them to come up with many kinds of abuse, including financial, spiritual, and emotional. I then read one or two stories aloud with the class. These stories are ones that other students have written about their experiences with abuse and shared with us. I then share my own history of my abusive father. I believe that this part is very important; it shows that I have experience in this field and know what I am talking about, and that it is possible to escape abuse.

Next, I move on to a powerpoint presentation to back up the stories we read with facts. I encourage the students to examine each aspect, considering what makes an abuser and what the affects of abuse are. Finally, I have each student sign a pledge saying "I am joining the fight to end domestic violence because..." I then share these back with the class. Students write both generic and personal responses, and in hearing their classmates' words, each student recognizes just how many people are affected by domestic violence, and will hopefully keep the lesson in mind as they enter future relationships.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There are many other organizations working toward ending domestic violence, such as the divisions of the National Coalition Against Domestic Abuse. We choose not to see our fellow groups as competitors, but as partners; we share information and encourage each others' growth, as we each have different specialties, and know that abuse cannot be eradicated with only one group working toward the change. As we are close in age to high school students, we are able to relate to them easily, and we focus more on stories than on facts, which separates us from the other groups. We encourage students to examine the stories we share with them for the various types of abuse exemplified, and through these exercises, they are then able to more readily identify similar situations in their own lives.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We do not measure our success so much by the profits we bring in, but rather by the impact we have on those we help. We have been able to distribute over 2,000 educational brochures across NH and MA, speak to over 1,000 students, and raise close to $2,500, in additional to earning several grants. However, these are just numbers; our real successes are in the personal stories people choose to share with us. For example, one victim expressed how proud she felt to be able to put her experiences in words and, in turn, help others in similar situations. Another student approached me after class and explained that his step-father was abusive, and he felt conflicted trying to protect him family and stay peaceful. It was the first time he had told his story to an adult, and I was touched that he chose me to be the one to help him onto the path of recovery. I consider that much more of a success than any number.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

My co-founder is currently in college, and I will be going next year as well. However, we look at this as a benefit to TADA. I am currently mentoring several students in the area to continue TADA in NH once I am out of the town. I will then bring the program with me to college, and TADA will be able to reach even more students. We plan to expand our current age group to dealing with bullying in elementary schools, and with abuse in colleges. We also hope to create an awareness video that teachers can show in their classrooms so that we can reach a wider audience, as it is impossible for us to physically visit every school in America.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Because I was only a teenager, many teachers ignored me when I first approached them about speaking in their schools. They would reply to my phone call or email expressing interest, but never follow through by setting a date. I learned to persevere and continued to contact them until they met with me or put me in contact with someone else who would. I was not used to having to be so forceful, but later on a teacher told me the only reason they had me come speak was because I was so persistent. My hard work paid off in the end, as every location has invited us back, and schools are now reaching out to us to have us speak to them. Although some are still skeptical of having a student speak to other students, we overcame a major obstacle by getting into the first school.

When I first started TADA, I was afraid that it would not be successful. I was taking a huge risk investing so much time and effort into an organization in which I had no experience, but I was determined to educate others on domestic violence. My efforts were soon rewarded; at the end of my first presentation - I had been shaking the entire time, terrified it wasn't going well - I collected the pledges from the 15 students. I stood before them and began reading them aloud. Each one touched my heart; the students had been completely honest, opening their hearts and sharing their personal reasons why they were against domestic violence. Each had been affected by it in some way, and the fact that they were all standing there that day, taking in what I taught them and looking toward a safe, successful future, made me confident that all the time and energy I spent on TADA was worth it.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

There is poor educational standard in Kilifi. This is manifest by the fact that the number of primary school students continuing their studies in secondary school is low. Furthermore, the number of secondary school students continuing their studies at a tertiary institution is even lower. A strong contributing factor and problem is a lack of role models for Kilifi school children who can inspire the schoolchildren see the value of education. Furthermore, the traditional blackboard teaching method emphasizes passing an exam, but neglects critical thinking and the need for Kilifi schoolchildren to learn about the tools required in everyday life.

The solution is providing a platform for the schoolchildren in Kilifi to interact with Pwani university student, an institution that is based in Kilifi. The platform will consist of organising activities (sports, theater, camping, music, community service, debates, intergenerational dialogues, conferences and 1-1 sessions) that will take place twice a month. During these activities, schoolchildren will interact with the university students, allowing the schoolchildren direct contact with someone to look up to. During these sessions, the schoolchildren will be exposed to critical thinking and life tools that will be learned through relating and interacting with their university counterparts through sharing their unique experiences, problem solving abilities as well as success stories. This interaction also gives the university students an opportunity to serve the disadvantaged and help them grow.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Mwanaisha is a primary school student in Kilifi struggling to stay in school. She is under pressure from her parents, peers and culture. Furthermore, she is struggling with science but needs to get a score of 350/500 on her final exam to go to secondary school. However, Mwanaisha lacks a role model to show her the importance of going to and staying in secondary school in spite of the pressure. Furthermore, Mwanaisha lacks a role model from a similar background to show her that it is possible for a girl like her to be successful in school.
The learning Companion program offers Mwanaisha the possibility of coming into contact with a Pwani university student (Amina) who can be the role model that she lacks. Before coming into contact with Amina, Mwanaisha would not see the importance of school let alone think that she could be successful in academics. While interacting with Amina, Mwanaisha will see an academically successful version of herself. Amina will be able to support and help Mwanaisha, not just through example, but also with specific problems that they can talk about.

Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

In the Kilifi area there are three other mentorship programs that do however differ substantially from Learning companion programme.
1. MAADHO.
Difference: uses professionals to mentor schoolchildren with contact once a year
2. Plan international
Difference: hosts conferences outside of the schoolchildren’s surrounding
3. KESHO
Difference: Offers scholarships once a year
These players are seen more as projects to learn from or future partners. LIBA has decided to use students rather than professionals, keep the schoolchildren in their own environment and have frequent contact with the schoolchildren. As such, the other players are not seen as competitors.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Learning Companion has so far reached 150 primary and 30 secondary school students aged 10-20 through face to face interaction with 25 Pwani University students. As result of this interaction, many students want to be in the program. LIBA and Pwani University have received five invitations from three primary and two secondary schools to reach out to them. One notable change is the students have begun looking at the inequalities in their community and want to support the disadvantaged in their community. 30 school children from three schools have came together to start “Reach Out Clubs” and have lined up pre-launch activities which include visiting two orphanages to play and encourage the children as they all share their stories and their backgrounds.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Our projected impact will be to reach 500 schoolchildren per year while involving 100 university students per year. Since the goal of the program is to maintain consistency, this would mean that in three years the program would compose of 1500 schoolchildren and 300 university students. To achieve this impact, we would have to expand the number of schools involved in the project. The schoolchildren involved in the program are expected to achieve higher tests results and drop out of school less than without the program. Furthermore, the schoolchildren are expected to have gained a different, more positive, perspective on education.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The possible barrier to the success of the program would be the lack of university students willing to participate, but the university students initially recruited are both active and positive in recruiting others for the program. Another barrier which poses a larger challenge is the financial barrier. The program is low-cost and currently all financing is done by LIBA. However, more funds are needed to organize the activities and reach more children. A solution would be obtaining funding from other grants or partnering with existing projects (e.g. Plan International provided lunch) to support the program.

LIBA came into contact with various mentorship programs that aimed at helping the schoolchildren in Kilifi. Despite their good intentions we perceived these mentorship programs to have several limitations. There is a wide gap between professionals and schoolchildren, contact is often limited and schoolchildren are taken outside of their regular environment. We felt that Pwani university students are much closer to the schoolchildren. The students are still studying and come from a background similar to schoolchildren in Kilifi. When LIBA approached the university students they seemed eager to collaborate in a mentorship program where they would work with schoolchildren frequently in their own environment. The goal of the initiative is to inspire the schoolchildren and convince them that they can also become university students.

Our volunteers have also been supporting the projects with donation of teaching and learning materials. Volunteers assist in caring for orphans and abandoned children and also providing them education. Caring work includes, assisting in cooking for the children, bathing them and showing them love. Volunteers can also assist in teaching English language and other subjects and extra curriculum activities at the orphanages and the schools pertaining to them. A local teacher will guide volunteers during the first week of classes at the orphanage in regard to lesson plans, schedules and teaching curriculum. If the volunteer or volunteer-intern is ready at the beginning of the second week, he or she may begin teaching independently.

Some reformers begun to attack orphanages for being overly regimented and sheltering their children too long. They argued that clustering children with similar backgrounds bred pauperism, and that institutionalized children were not prepared adequately for life struggles. They advocated dispersing the children into families.

Orphanages responded to the criticisms by striving to create homelike institutions. They broke the large congregate bedrooms into small units, built cottages in which small groups of children lived with a home mother, relaxed the discipline, added more recreation and enrichment programs, and cultivated children's individual talents.
The reformers intensified their criticism of orphanages, blaming them for obliterating individuality. They declared that the best method of caring for dependent children was at home or in an alternative family. Institutions, they said, should be considered the last resort.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Empathy is necessary in order for the next generation to stand up for human rights for all and work towards a peaceful and secure world. Young people need to be taught how to participate in creating change, how to advocate for human rights. The need for human rights education in which young people learn about how people all over the world live, and for advocacy skills training, including supported opportunities to advocate on issues they care about, is essential for the next generation to become empathetic, real world problem solvers.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The Advocacy Lab (AdLab) empowers youth to take action for human rights. Partnering with teachers in New York City middle and high schools, AdLab brings yearlong, weekly human rights education and advocacy skills training programs into classrooms. Guided by facilitators, students learn about local and global human rights issues in the first semester. In the second semester, students carry out an advocacy campaign on an issue of their choice, thereby gaining the knowledge, tools, and confidence to create positive social change. When the students start to take action to change something they care about, apathy turns to empathy. They feel they can make a difference, and are compelled to do so.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Students in Crown Heights, Brooklyn reported being subjected to many incidences of racial profiling. The Advocacy Lab supported them as they created an awareness-raising and advocacy campaign on the issue. As students gained the knowledge, skills, and confidence to confront injustice, they also educated their peers, building their presentation and leadership skills and reinforcing their learning. They practiced stating their rights in a dignified and respectful manner when engaging with police officers through a Know Your Rights presentation by the New York Civil Liberties Union, and taught their peers to do the same. In fact, two AdLab students used the knowledge they learned when confronted by police officers on the street within a week of that Know Your Rights presentation. They excitedly and proudly shared their positive experience with their peers and teachers.

The Advocacy Lab brings guest speakers into the classroom, takes students on field trips, and shares resources and services with organizations such as the New York Civil Liberties Union, Community Service Society, Picture the Homeless, ECPAT-USA, the United Nations, Amnesty International USA and Concern USA. Our students advocate on issues these organizations target. We have consulted with successful peers such as Eric Dawson from Peace First and completed extensive research on similar organizations such as Global Kids and Border Crossers. While these organizations are doing meaningful work, none provide comprehensive yearlong human rights education and advocacy skills training programs in middle and high schools with a goal of building empathy among youth.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

leia mais↑ ocultar↑ ocultar

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The Advocacy Lab directly affects young people’s lives. The students are personally transformed by working on local, often personal issues such as domestic violence and racism, and global issues such as sex trafficking and child soldiers. Throughout the program, they gain confidence and become empathetic leaders of change, educating and mobilizing their peers and community members. AdLab students improve their communities, impact the world, and gain skills they can use for the rest of their lives. We have educated over 1000 students directly. Thousands more students, teachers, and community members have learned about human rights from participating in the students’ advocacy campaigns. The schools we work in begin to develop a culture of peace and tolerance, as year after year students are exposed to human rights language, learn about different human rights issues, and participate in advocacy campaigns.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We plan to expand in breadth in 2013 by starting AdLab programs in new schools in New York City and expand in depth in 2014 by starting an alumni group for students who completed the yearlong program. We are creating professional development programs to train teachers and other facilitators who want to bring human rights education into their schools or community programs. Additionally, by ensuring our curriculum aligns with state standards, we are supporting teachers in the classroom in their core curriculum requirements and providing them with the means to differently and creatively engage students in mandated lessons.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

A lack of funds would present an obstacle to the success of our programs. If unable to fully fund the Advocacy Lab this year, keeping the organization at its current size, we will spend another year building on our current success in order to strengthen our track record and show funders we are a worthwhile investment. We will explore alternative revenue streams and continue our major volunteer and intern recruitment efforts that have proven successful on a small scale to aid in our development.

At 12 years old, in questioning my parents about the lack of minority students in my school, I learned all schools were not equal and districts with few resources and inexperienced teachers often had a high population of minority students. As passionate as I was to change this and other injustices I was exposed to as I grew to adulthood, it was not until college that I learned about human rights and tools to advocate for those rights. If young people were to have a voice in creating a more peaceful and secure world, I knew they would need to learn about human rights and advocacy. My passion led me to create human rights education and advocacy skills training programs for middle and high schools, and co-found what is now the Advocacy Lab.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Ainda na fase de ideia, mas você deseja lançá-lo em breve

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Currently there is more war, hunger, environmental degradation, and worse yet, more ambivalence from the majority of the world’s population to these issues than ever before. It is time for the Majority --not simply the Minority--to facilitate stability, peace, awareness, and pro-activity. Virtual Mayor, the necessary middle point, unites the Minority with the Majority. As this Majority includes the youth, our current education systems must develop empathy in students so that they can be part of the solutions that improve conditions for billions of people around the globe. In order for the necessary educational paradigm shift to occur, new models are required that foster compassion, communication, creativity, critical problem solving, collaboration and cross-cultural relationship building.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Virtual Mayor is the global omni-portal where students, individuals, and businesses align with non-governmental and governmental organizations to co-create and advance life-affirming programs, inventions, and enterprises. These ventures merge technology, social networking, gaming, education, 21st century leadership, and inclusivity. The Virtual Mayor system offers students and others the opportunity to fully engage in the most meaningful project-based learning environment possible: real life. Virtual Mayor proposes a 20-25% investment in its 21st c. model of project-based learning. By connecting individuals with organizations who also seek to lead and cause conscious system shifts through enterprises (that include the development of services, apps, games and sites), Virtual Mayor activates the enormous—and as yet, relatively untapped—resources that currently reside in the youth and others who will, for the first time in their lives, offer their unique contributions to the world.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Virtual Mayor (VM) fosters the maximization of human potential by supporting the design, implementation and success of enterprises to create new life-affirming systems that render current unsatisfactory systems obsolete. Learning occurs both physically (in the class and local community) plus virtually on the VM social networking site. Students engage in project-based learning to strengthen their learning abilities plus cause full-spectrum system shifts in a field of their choosing, and for which they have passion.The scope of projects is limited only by the imagination of its creator(s). The major requirement is that each project demonstrates an intention to set and achieve specific measurable results, both for their own sake, and as evidence of the occurrence of a system shift. The VM system also addresses the need all people have for accessibility to cutting-edge learning and, thanks to technology, offers a ‘lifelong’ model that includes literacy and numeracy foundation. Empathy for others can flow with ease once students feel empowered within themselves. Right now we are connecting with academic and resource partners to demonstrate how students can create literacy-based learning objects to benefit both their own learning and the learning of others who can observe and be inspired by the creative ways in which the learning objects are developed. As VMs showcase their skills and craft their passions and projects into entrepreneurial opportunities, they may also earn academic placements, scholarships, prosperous business opportunities, &/or fulfilling employment.

Virtual Mayor is a strategy that integrates three critical needs: educational reform (both in school and retraining programs), engagement of youth, and global collaboration that fosters systemic changes. This integration is critical to the success of any initiative to cause full spectrum systemic shifts. In Virtual Mayor’s case education, psychology, business, entertainment, and technology merge for a powerful impact. In the field of educational reform, Students First addresses a number of issues that affect student performance in schools, but they have yet to propose meaningful project-based learning as a strategy. Free the Children successfully encourages youth engagement in projects, but does not fully integrate these projects into curricula, nor do they offer a social networking site.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

This solution is just being implemented in its current form now, and data regarding its impact will be available soon. Different elements of the solution have been implemented in school and camp settings with hundreds of students benefitting from holistic literacy programs. The digital and project-based aspects of the solution are new.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Within the next 3 years we intend to conduct Virtual Mayor workshops and integrate programs into 100's of elementary and secondary schools. Our experiences with teachers, parents and students have shown us the need and desire for effective education that develops the whole child as curriculum demands are met. More systems recognize the need for character based education, project based learning, collaboration and preparation for a technology-driven global market. Virtual Mayor meets these needs and ensures that all students open up empathically in the process. It is due to the matching of the needs to the elements of our solution that will help us grow our reach. To date, every school we have approached has been very interested in learning about how to participate in our current pilot.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Access to computers and the Internet is required for the fullest experience of Virtual Mayor, both for educators and students. We know that many students currently do not have this access and do have solutions in place for providing our programs via DVDs. We also intend to source out all possible local computing resources for students to assist them in becoming more technology literate.
Currently, we will pursue projects with schools whose students can fully participate.
It is our vision that as more participating schools post results and potential donors see the efficiency of our solution, they will be willing to provide to other students access to the necessary technology.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

The defining moment for Virtual Mayor occurred in July 2010 when I was asked to be a campaign manager by a Toronto Mayoral candidate. As I investigated the possibility I could not find vision, integrity and follow-through among the candidates that aligned with my sense of what was needed. Thus, my desire to engage more people in democratic processes arose and Virtual Mayor, a web site for discussion of local issues was born. Out of a personal desire to be even more involved in the democratic process, I ultimately placed my own name on the ballot. After the election I merged the understanding I gained in that process with my previous 12 years in educational reform and realized that people must be a part of a meaningful system of support, education, and integration of all stakeholders to truly bring forward systemic changes that are needed. I soon saw how Virtual Mayor could harness technology to provide both the platform for this integration and a powerful model for education reform.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Empathy requires two things: the capacity to recognize another’s state of being and the ability to see another’s point of view (perspective taking). Evolutionary science suggests this is easier to do with people who are MORE like us, and harder with people who are LESS like us. As globalization, technology and urbanization draw together divergent cultures, we face unprecedented challenges in education. The Worldview Literacy Project (WVLP) is an innovative program designed to foster empathy and compassion in middle and high-school students. The pioneering science-based curriculum involves an understanding that beliefs are embedded within personal and cultural frames of reference, and encourages the cultivation of empathy and deep appreciation for diverse perspectives.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The WVLP focuses not only on what kids know, but how they know it. Using a research-based model, the series of lessons builds essential capacities that science suggests promote empathy and compassion in these domains:

1) Intrapersonal: Students become aware of the way they view the world, their self-identity, beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions. This involves specific experiential exercises designed to increase metacognition, awareness of worldview, cognitive flexibility, and curiosity.

2) Interpersonal/relational: Once students become aware of their own perspectives, we engage them in activities to understand the perspectives of others, their sense of belonging or connectedness to a larger whole, and specific exercises that promote prosocial attitudes and behaviors such as empathy, compassion and forgiveness.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our pilot programs with over 1500 students suggest that our focus on developing awareness of worldviews promotes empathy and compassion and fosters social and emotional well-being in children. It provides tools for becoming effective leaders and engaged global citizens. In one classroom that struggled with the challenge of diverse worldviews, for example, the WVLP helped students create a classroom environment of inclusivity and collaboration. By promoting team building through collaborative projects, another group of students applied their new learning by creating an afterschool mentorship program.

In this project, teachers from diverse classrooms will participate in a 3-day professional development workshop to infuse 18 pilot tested, experiential multi-media lessons into their classrooms. This innovative program is available on the Collaborize Classroom online platform (http://www.collaborizeclassroom.com/) allowing it to be easily accessed, distributed widely, and adapted to specific populations, providing the capacity for diverse classrooms across the country and around the world to share learning experiences.

The teacher training will be supplemented by a year-long webinar program offering ongoing support. An online discussion forum will be available for teachers to share best practices, strategize around challenges and possibilities, and communicate stories and results that will inspire others.

Programs like Second Step - teaching skills to help students deal with issues of bullying, conflict, and emotional management, and Roots of Empathy - aiming to reduce levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy (both K-8) are examples of peers. The WVLP differentiates itself through 1) focusing on worldview, 2) targeting middle/high school students, 3) including a component on wise action in the world, and 4) utilizing Collaborize Classroom for ease of use and scalability. Our goal is to collaborate with other programs that are advancing the development of empathy as a core competency.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In 2007, IONS began to translate its decades of research on worldview into curricula for high school students. By 2010 it was pilot tested in 12 diverse classrooms from Oakland, CA to the West Bank of Palestine. Teachers and students found the program inspiring, engaging, and empowering. Based on their feedback we revised and expanded the program to eighteen lessons, making them more accessible, easier to infuse into existing academics, and simpler for teachers to deliver. Now we are formally evaluating the program's effects on empathy, compassion, and classroom environment in 10 classrooms. We have directly impacted over 1500 students, 100 school teachers and many more through a peer-reviewed article and presentations. We have developed a powerful curriculum that we are ready to take to scale.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Once the current evaluation is complete, and the curriculum finalized, we are ready to take it into the world. We anticipate that in the next 1-3 years we will directly impact a minimum of 100 classrooms and 3000 students. We will also contribute to shifting our educational paradigm through our publications and presentations. An award from Ashoka will help us provide in-depth training to a set of teachers to not only utilize the WVLP to teach skills for navigating different perspectives, but in the art of creating cultures of empathy, appreciation, and curiosity in their classrooms and schools.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Potential barriers to success are accessibility, scalability, and sustainability. To address accessibility and scalability while maintaining high quality, we are taking advantage of in-person training and interactive web-based technologies to distribute lessons, conduct ongoing training and support, and create a community of shared learning. We are addressing sustainability through a combination of philanthropy and social entrepreneurial business planning.

Deeply engaged in a decade-long research project to study the world’s spiritual traditions, I was invited to share my findings with my son’s cub scout troop, exploring cultural pluralism and sharing video-recorded practices from different cultures. While watching a Sufi Zikr, one boy quickly reported: “I know all about Islam. Those people don’t want us in their country!” We discussed this, noting that there are many Muslim people who would love us to come to their country. The boys’ eyes lit up with curiosity, stereotypes dropped away, and the young men questioned their assumptions as never before. Over time, the work has expanded into a complex and rich curriculum for students to understand the sources of their beliefs and deepen their appreciation and empathy for diverse worldviews.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The prevailing educational system has produced devastating results for US students: clinical depression in over 8%, at least 14% have had suicidal ideation, 1 in 4 teens binge drink, 25% of high school students drop out, and there has been 130% increase in homicide among youth in the past ten years (National Institute of Health, 2010). The additional downstream social costs include billions of dollars in medicine, law enforcement and loss of potential. Our education system is facing the dangers of eroding home life, violence, learning difficulties, classrooms in chaos and teachers’ loss of hope.

More importantly, the present systemic norms do not cultivate children's innate emotional capacity for empathy to self and others. This untapped treasure exists within all children.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Dovetail Learning directly addresses these avoidable and disastrous consequences by bringing out the multiple resilience assets innate within all children worldwide.

Dovetail Learning and The Toolbox Project's comprehensive K-6 curriculum provides children the opportunity to tap into their (heretofore unattended) inherent capacity to go inside themselves to find solutions to social and emotional challenges. Teaching the 12 tools, i.e., life skills, (Breathing Tool, Quiet/Safe Place Tool, Listening Tool, Empathy Tool, Personal Space Tool, Using our Words Tool, Garbage Can Tool, Taking Time Tool, Please & Thank You Tool, Apology and Forgiveness Tool, Patience & Courage Tool) creates a school-wide easily accessible "common language".

Toolbox is an upstream investment empowering each child toward self-mastery accessing their inner strengths, increasing self-awareness, self-regulation and empathy which naturally leads to decisions that will positively impact their entire life.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

This solution makes a difference to children, parents and teachers:

The 12 Tools are taught in class using hands-on Tool/Toolbox cut-outs, literature, puppets, role-plays, journaling, art work, pair-shares, circles and council. These tools build a "common language" used in the classroom, across the school community, and at home.

The following quote from a parent of a second grader exemplifies how this work makes a difference:

“I can see Sally using her Toolbox at home when we are having a conflict, when she feels too hassled or upset. I have seen her breathing and counting, using her garbage can, (though she’s learned not to put moms advice there, ha,ha,) and asking for “personal space”. Empathy is probably most important to her. She has reminded me many times to “have empathy”, or, “ Where’s your empathy?” when I’m pushing too hard. She’s good at forgiveness and apology and the toolbox supports those as well as “Please and thank you”

“I’m sure teaching these concepts early on has resulted in prevention or lessening of all types of conflict at this school, making it a safer environment. If these children can carry these tools with them all their lives and perhaps teach them to others, the world should improve. thanks for your work.” ~ parent

The impact on teaching is exemplified in this quote from a major district superintendent:

"I believe these tools not only make a difference in the classroom but contribute to children in the whole of their lives. The toolbox makes social-emotional strategies of great teachers available to all teachers."

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There are many national Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs (Second Step, Responsive Classroom, etc.) teaching character and values education from the outside in (adults learning what kids need to thrive). Bonnie Benard, National Resilience expert says, "The Toolbox Project is the only program that teaches children about their own resilient nature."

Toolbox is unique because it redirects children back to what they already know, inviting them to discover what “Tools” they have inside themselves. When this “missing piece” is in place, children are naturally accountable and responsible from an inner felt-sense of autonomy. This is a paradigm shift.

The Toolbox skills "Dovetail" beautifully with the work of our peers. What we do adds and contributes to the field of SEL.

Formative research on The Toolbox Project, was conducted by WestEd measuring teacher perceptions of changes within a 14 week period. The study employed multiple, pre-post measures showed significant, positive change in the following resiliency skills and assets.

Interpersonal Strength Scale (Apologizing; Using anger management skills; Accepting criticism; Admitting mistakes; Showing remorse; sharing; and Reacting to disappointments calmly).

Intra-personal Strength Scale (Identifying feelings, personal strengths, enthusiastic attitudes about life; and self–confidence) .

Affective Strength Scale (Accepts closeness and intimacy; Acknowledges painful feelings; Asks for help; and Discusses problems).

We are in 60 schools serving 10,000 children.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

In 2012 we will expand to 76 schools, increasing to 110 schools in 2013.

Our primary target audience is low-income disadvantaged children. We are working to build fidelity and sustainability within our current user-group. We are expanding our work within the Richmond, CA WCCUSD school system, one of the most traumatized/marginalized populations in CA from 2 to six schools.

We have a request from Kaiser Hospital to train staff in Toolbox skills and through collaborations with CBO's we are building a community wellness model that impacts, children, schools, and the entire community.

This year we are building a train-the-trainer program to expand to a national and international audience. We have had requests for our work from as far as Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Georgia.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

System wide education funding continues to decline, though many schools are purchasing our work. Dovetail Learning is currently dependent on philanthropic support to serve schools with financial need. Patrons who experience the Toolbox story of our work find it deeply compelling; an upstream investment that relieves incalculable downstream human costs.

In scaling to a national model we need more financial support. We are currently focused on fund development and receiving guidance from many directions. WCCUSD is sponsoring a convening of 45 individuals representing funding organizations. We are working closely with the Stuart Foundation of San Francisco to meet with mid to large size foundations. We are seeking corporate giving (current funders include AutoDesk, Tibco, Wells Fargo).

One morning a truck driver dad came into his daughter’s kindergarten class. Billy, the single father of five-year-old Cindy, had a story to tell me. He asked sternly, “What is this thing called the Empathy Tool?” I replied “What do you mean?” He continued, “We were driving home late last night when Cindy called out from the back seat and said, ‘Dad, I am still hungry and I need to have something to eat when we get home.’ I told her that it was too late and she needed to go right to bed because she had school the next day. Then she softly said, ‘But dad, you are not using your Empathy Tool, you are not thinking about how I am feeling.’” I explained the Empathy Tool further and in that moment, Billy understood his daughter in a new way. When these innate skills come from within the children to their parents, the impact is life changing. I knew in that moment that teaching these tools to the world would result in a major paradigm shift for children, their families and communities!

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

When empathy is absent, bullying persists. One in every 4 kids is bullied. 8 percent of students miss one day of class a month for fear of bullies. One out of 5 kids admits to being a bully, or doing some bullying. Two-thirds of students who are targets become bullies.

In schools where there are bullying programs, bullying is reduced by 50 percent. By working with over 7,000 K-8th grade students in over 300 classrooms annually, MBS provides students with practical solutions to bullying through theater and kinesthetic learning.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Alice’s Story, Making Books Sing’s interactive anti-bullying performance and workshop, is designed to appeal to students’ empathy and creativity in solving real-life bullying problems. Two actor-educators visit a classroom and facilitate a 45-minute interactive theatre workshop. The workshop includes moments of scripted performance, guided discussion and improvisation. The program seeks to create a safe learning environment for all students, to create communities of respect and inclusion, and to empower students to be agents of positive change.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our program works as follows: Two teaching artists visit a classroom and facilitate a 45-minute interactive theater workshop. During the workshops the students fulfill three roles – audience members, critical thinkers and actors. The students begin by viewing short scenes performed by the teaching artists that illustrate different forms of bullying. This story explores how bullying can range from subtle taunting to outright aggression, and it also looks at the important role bystanders play in these situations. The students are then engaged in a conversation, brainstorming effective ways to counter bullying and what to do when it happens. Finally, the students have the opportunity to become the actors in the skits, implementing the countering strategies they developed as a class.

Several organizations in NYC, including PFLAG, FIERCE and City Kids, are working to put a stop to bullying. Most anti-bullying programs in NYC are lecture based and engage students as passive audience members. Alice’s Story uses strategic theatre techniques to actively engage students in the learning process. Students become stakeholders in the outcome of the program—this empowers them with a sense of ownership while also validating their own experiences, insights, emotions and solutions. The workshop does not provide students with a script of what to say in a bullying situation. Instead, students integrate words, empathy and actions into their bodies through guided discussion and improvisation. Our peers make for great partners, allowing us to reach more children in the community.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since the program was created in November 2010, Alice’s Story has presented over 200 times, in over 25 schools and community centers, to over 6,000 students in all five NYC boroughs. A Teacher at VOICE Charter School in Queens says, “Through role playing, the actors appealed to the students’ empathy and creativity in solving real-life bullying problems. The experience has definitely added to our effort to create a caring community where bullying doesn’t happen.”

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Alice’s Story will reach 6,000-8,000 students annually. We will partner with more community organizations whose mission involves creating communities of respect and inclusion in order to give young people the best, most effective ways to deal with bullying.

We will also expand our anti-bullying efforts to include bias-based bullying, in which individuals are targeted and harassed specifically because of an identifiable trait, choice or physical characteristic—this could include someone’s sexual orientation, religion, gender identity, race or physical appearance. The expanded program, targeted primarily toward 6-8th graders, will include examining social justice, cyberbullying and civic responsibility.

In 1996, Making Books Sing began as the family theatre and education program of the Tony Award-winning Vineyard Theatre. Today, Making Books Sing is in its eleventh year as an independent nonprofit that produces professional theatre and related arts-in-education programs, inspiring children to grow as literate, creative and socially aware individuals.

Artistic Director and Founder Barbara Zinn Krieger says, “I felt there was a need for the kind of good and professional work that I was used to for adults at The Vineyard for children, and from what I could see, there wasn’t much of it around. I started Making Books Sing as the educational arm of The Vineyard and discovered that my passion shifted to that.”

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

41% of Polk County students do not believe students treat each other with respect, and almost 15% of students do not feel safe at school. Parents, youth, and community members consistently identify bullying as an issue for youth. Through focus groups, conference presentations, and program discussions with youth, the ID Action Youth Advisory Board determined that bullying was the issue they wanted to impact. Based on their own experiences of bullying and isolation, they identified disability-related bullying as a need. In particular, they saw a strong need for youth to hear from a youth with a disability about what their experience with a disability has been, how they have faced bullying, and how they have overcome challenges in their lives.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The solution identified by the ID Action Youth Advisory Board was to develop a presentation on bullying and disabilities that they gave to middle school students. In particular, they asked educators to identify students who had experienced bullying or who had disabilities for attendance, though all students were welcome to participate. The Youth Advisory Board led youth through a series of activities, including discussion of public service announcements, role-playing, a self-assessment of bullying behaviors, sharing their personal stories of struggle and overcoming barriers, and the discussion of movie clips from "Temple Grandin", a movie about the accomplishments of a woman who has autism. In this manner, the Youth Advisory Board engaged middle school student groups in discussion of bullying and disabilities to enable younger youth to problem solve, educate them about people with disaiblities, identify with older youth, and offer hope for people experiencing bullying.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

One way this project makes a difference is the impact it had on the ally youth. The KWAKers (Kids with a “Kause) were a test group for the presentation and then attended another event with the Board as allies. Because of the project, the group understood disabilities and bullying in a broader way. Before the project, the KWAKer youth had little experience interacting with youth with disabilities. Any anxiety that the KWAKers had going into the project was put to rest upon meeting the group. The presentation invited opinions and discussion from everyone involved. The experience of being bullied was a powerful, unifying element for the two groups. The stories prompted one KWAKer member to share his own struggles that were not unlike those shared by several of the ID Action youth. During the first presentation, the KWAKers looked upon the ID Action youth with admiration as members took turns getting up in front of the classroom to tell their stories. For the KWAKers, it was a powerful and effective experience that changed pre-conceived notions. In the end, one of the KWAKers observed that the youth in both groups were more alike than they were different.
The broad strengths of the project were three-fold: the ID Action Youth Advisory Board members gained confidence, pride, and presentation skills; the KWAKers understood disabilities in a broader way and made friends with people with disabilities; and the presentation participants witnessed this partnership, learned about ways to combat bullying, and reflected on their own attitudes and experiences.

The Iowa Department of Education is implementing a Safe and Supportive Schools grant and is engaging youth through advisory boards to address school climate issues. We are targeting middle school youth, and their focus is high school. One focus of our project is to empower youth with disabilities to impact bullying, while their scope encompasses more than bullying and the general student population. We see both efforts as beneficial and addressing different niches and age groups within the issue.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

This project provided the KWAKers with an understanding of what it is like to have a disability and created a bridge between the two groups by focusing on what they had in common. The ID Action group encouraged the KWAKers to be true to themselves, prompted all to intervene if they saw someone being bullied, and taught youth that they are not alone and anyone can overcome challenges. When they completed the presentation, Board members felt a sense of leadership, ownership, and responsibility to help others. 15 youth have experienced the presentation. Based on the self-report, it is clear that bullying behavior is common among middle school students, and interventions will be critical to the way students deal with these experiences. Participant attitudes about people with disabilities were measured, and more students held positive attitudes toward people with disabilities than negative attitudes. This was even more so the case for the KWAKers.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

The group is expected to impact a greater number of youth and adults over the next year. The group regularly receives requests from adults to hear about their intervention methods and will present to 100 adults at a spring conference. If funded to continue, the project is expected to impact bullying two-fold: by introducing adults to youth ideas on how to address the issue, and by involving middle school youth in discussions and activities around bullying. Over the next year, it is the goal of the group to reach at least four more metro youth groups and an additional 60 youth. As measured on an attitudinal survey, participants are expected to increase positive attitudes toward people with disabilities.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

One challenge of the project is that most of the presenting youth are enrolled in high school or college, which would prevent them from being available during the school day. Since CYC coordinates several school-based and linked after school programs, the group plans to present to groups during after school programming. Teachers and administrators will be invited to participate to provide crossover to the school day and curriculum.

The ID Action Youth Advisory Board was in the middle of brainstorming community needs that they wanted to impact through service learning. Amelia Colwell Reedy (the founder) asked the group how they would impact bullying, which came up as the issue of greatest importance to the youth. The youth said they would return to their former middle schools to talk with students about their experiences with disabilities and bullying to bring understanding and problem solving skills to youth. It was then that Colwell Reedy said, "Let's make it happen, then!" She saw great potential in the voices of youth with disabilities impacting bullying firsthand, to a different extent than adults could. She saw the potential in each youth present to have a positive effect on how the community viewed people with disabilities and how they viewed bullying.

Em execução entre 1 e 5 anos

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

The Project simultaneously targets three problems Spain/ worldwide:

1. Many people do not know about deaf children. Lack of knowledge creates unnecessary barriers and limits on these children's futures.

2. Deaf children struggle with learning a second language. English is as key to their future as it is for their normal-hearing peers. Studies show that, if deaf children have technology such as hearing aids or cochlear implants, success in a second language is attributed to motivation to learn that language, provided by a close relationship with native English-speakers in a natural and fun environment.

3. Often students who study abroad do not integrate into local society and do not develop a bond with the local culture beyond that of their own school environment and classmates.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

This program pairs study-abroad university student volunteers with families of deaf children to support the learning of English as a second language via cross cultural exchange. The students visit their “child” weekly in the home throughout the semester. The families treat the students as part of the family, playing games, sports, cooking, dancing, art, music, or even video games in English, as an older sibling would. The student volunteer learns not only about the local culture, and bonds with the family, making the study abroad experience more meaningful, but also shares learns about hearing loss. This creates empathy on all 3 levels: about hearing loss, about a culture, and about language. Finally, the program is creative and volunteer-based and has no costs other than minor administrative expenses.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Examples of experiences from our program specific blog ihearyou.t-oigo.com:
(parent) This student has connected perfectly with our son, Rodrigo. With her dedication she has created a positive attitude toward English: every week he eagerly waits for the visit of his American friend. She has been not only a teacher but provides an authentic cultural exchange through games and fun. Naturally and progressively we have achieved that he has loosened up, using phrases in daily normal situations. He says “Mami, can I please watch tv?” Or “Mami, I want potatoes and fish for dinner.” Something really incredible for us! I want to transmit how lucky we feel to be able to access this program and to have (Student) as part of our family.”

(student) I honestly didn't know what to expect because I have never worked with anyone with hearing loss, but I'm so encouraged by Adrian. He's so smart and he is able to understand everything. I speak slowly and clearly and make sure that we have eye contact. Kids with hearing loss are able to do absolutely everything that kids without it can do. I can definitely understand that learning a new language is frustrating and difficult, but Adrian works really hard and I can tell that he is really trying. It's fun to watch him learn!

Students use their creativity to develop age- and language level -appropriate activities to do with their “child”. The children currently are 3 to 12 years. The students and families blog regularly about their experiences and share ideas to reflect on how the experience affects their perceptions and how to improve.

No one appears to be offering this experience for free to deaf children, nor providing specific help for deaf kids to learn English in a fun way, and in their own homes.
Our competition for the students volunteers could come from companies that offer paid internships to study abroad students.
In addition, agencies could provide specialized English tutors but at a cost. Most of these families already have many expenses related to therapy, audiology, etc. They have time constraints which keep them from driving to these academies.
In addition, neither of these competitive scenarios offers the same cross-cultural, beneficial family experience in a home setting that our project does.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Parents of deaf kids who once feared for their child’s limited future now realize it is possible to motivate them to learn English. Approximately 11, 000 monthly readers are following this program on our website and specifically- designed blog, ihearyou.t-oigo.com. The social impact of the program not only directly reaches the deaf children and their families, but also their friends, school community, the student volunteers, and their school. One student volunteer can directly impact the empathy of over 50 people who realize the potential of deaf children and thus withhold barriers. Currently we have 15 study- abroad volunteers active in the program. As a result of the program, some have decided to focus their future careers on helping deaf children and will continue to learn Spanish. The enthusiasm of the original student and family participants spreads and words gets out quickly about the program and fuels growth. Further, the mass media loves the topic and supports what we do.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

There is a great deal of potential over the next 1-3 years, given that an estimated 24,000 university students from the United States study in Spain every year. This project, which currently includes 15 American study-abroad students in Madrid, could be gradually rolled out all over Spain. In addition to the project’s quantitative impact, its qualitative impact of reducing barriers for deaf children through study-abroad students, their broader school communities, and the mass media is enormous. The impact could also easily be expanded to other countries, where the program could be easily replicated and the language and cross cultural benefits extended.
(El Mundo, 2008: http://www.elmundo.es/suplementos/campus/2009/562/1259148960.html).

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

There are two barriers that we can anticipate and counter: 1) continued access to study-abroad students to volunteer in the program; 2) sufficient commitment and ample communication at local level to guarantee program success in new geographical locations. We are confident about tackling the first obstacle through disseminating the positive experience study-abroad students have had to date with deaf children. Regarding the second obstacle, we will thoroughly identify and train local contact persons in order to ensure program viability and success.

In 2003 when my 3-year old son was diagnosed with hearing loss, it came as a shock to me, despite my own severe-profound deafness. Experts told me that we had to pick only one language for him, and I knew that would be impossible, as a permanent American expat in Spain, and living in a bilingual environment. Once I had worked out the solution for my own son, by “importing Americans” to live with us, I knew I had the power to help others do the same. At a conference I organized with international experts on language and deafness, I saw how excited the audience of families and professionals was and decided to set up such a program, which was successful from the start. My own son is now 11 years old, and is bilingual in Spanish and English. He is beginning French!

We could use help translating articles and program information/guidelines into other languages so that the program could be carried out in other countries. ihearyou.t-oigo.com could be available in additional languages and reach more people. We could use donations of books and games in English in countries where the program is running.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

We are working to solve poverty, which affects 44% of all U.S. children The impact of poverty on academic development and economic empowerment is devastating. Ten-year-old students from the poorest families are already 18 months behind their higher-income counterparts academically, and attendance records of fourth-grade students from low-income schools show a 38% increase in the number of kids who miss 3+days per month when compared to higher income schools. These trends continue in high school - low-income students drop out 4.4 times more than high-income students. Failure to graduate leads to lifetime income loss of $630,000 and social welfare costs of $240,000 per person. High School dropouts also experience significantly higher jailing and teenage parenthood rates than graduates.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

WINGS is an education organization that teaches kids how to behave well, make good decisions, and build healthy relationships. We do this by delivering a social and emotional learning curriculum into a fresh and fun after school program. Operating in Title I elementary schools, we serve at-risk, low-income kids 3-hours per day, 5-days per week, for the entire school year –students receive more than 500 hours of quality programing annually.

Our program meets two critical needs at the same time: 1) social and emotional education and 2) safe and enriching after school care. Research shows social and emotional education delivered in the after school setting increases academic achievement, school attendance, and student behavior. Evaluations of our program show – WINGS kids make better grades, score higher on standardizes tests, attend school more often, and have better behavior than non-WINGS students. Our students also graduate at a rate 40% higher than their peer group – WINGS works.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Kids arrive in WINGS immediately after school. AmeriCorps members, called WINGSLeaders, serve with our kids. They are carefully recruited and trained to maximize impact. Low member to student ratios (1:10-12) and innovative activities are used for constant engagement. Our curriculum includes:

Community Unity – the first 30 minutes of each day, focused on creating a caring community, teaching social and emotional skills, and providing a nutritious snack. The WINGS Creed, our SEL objectives in kid-friendly language, is said at this time.

Choice Time – 9-week blocks of well-prepared art, music, sports, and activities that the kids select. All activities infuse academic standards and SEL objectives. Choice Time is twice per week and serves as an opportunity for collaboration with other organizations.

Academic Centers – 60 minutes Monday-Thursday where students receive academic support from WINGSLeaders and community volunteers.

WINGSWorks – weekly 60 minutes of community service activities focused on helping others and strengthening attachment to school.

WildWINGS – weekly 90 minutes of innovative games, discussions, and activities to reinforce the weekly learning objective.

LaunchPad Curriculum – designed for fourth and fifth grade students to further develop 21st century skills and to open new educational and career pathways.

Discussions – Incorporated into Mondays and Fridays, this is a time for students to demonstrate they understand the weekly learning objective.

Parent literacy and educational activities are also incorporated into our program.

Our peers are effective education and human service organizations providing support to at-risk kids. Examples include Playworks and Citizen Schools. Our competitors are ineffective nonprofits that utilize scarce resources.

Program research and the use of data differentiate us. Studies from Yale University and the University of Virginia (UVA) provide evidence that students enrolled in WINGS have significantly higher math and reading scores, grades, and school attendance compared to non-WINGS kids. This led to a $2.8 million Institute of Education Sciences grant to UVA to conduct a four-year randomized control trial impact study on WINGS – the gold standard in evaluation. We also maintain our own online performance management system to monitor impact and to make adjustments in real-time.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Over the past the past four years we have experienced a 300% growth rate – successfully growing from one school to four. We currently serve 450 at-risk kids daily, and as we grow we will serve thousands more.

We measure impact through a series of short-term, intermediate, and long-term outcomes. In the short-term, we have demonstrated that our curriculum teaches students social and emotional skill. Intermediate outcomes demonstrate significantly higher math and reading scores, classroom grades, school attendance, and behavior when compared to non-WINGS students. These results are documented through our own performance management system and external evaluations by Yale and UVA. Our long-term outcomes are limited in number due to the number of years WINGS has been in existence, but powerful in impact – our students show a 40% higher graduation rate than non-WINGS students from the same elementary school cohort.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Since the 2007–2008 school year WINGS has grown from one program to four, and we have increased the number of kids we serve daily from 116 to more than 450. All of our growth has been within Charleston, SC.

Next school year we plan to launch outside of our hometown!

During the 2012-13 school year we will expand to the Atlanta region and open two schools, serving 635 kids. We will continue to push forward in 2013-14, with up to 10 total schools throughout the organization. By 2014-15 we expect to be in at least three regions with up to 12 schools and nearly 1,500 students being served daily.

Based on our preliminary graduation data, our early expansion will lead to hundreds of additional high school graduates. Moving beyond 2015, we plan to grow more rapidly to expand our impact.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Financial and fidelity risks are seen as barriers to success as we grow:

Financial Risk – We will be expanding into new markets, relying on more philanthropic dollars than ever before. Compounding this risk, government funding is becoming more fickle.

Plan to overcome: We will significantly build our operating reserves prior to expansion and require financial support at the local level. We anticipate new philanthropic sources to emerge as we become larger, diversifying our revenue streams.

Fidelity Risk – As we grow our program could become diluted.

Plan to overcome: Through the branching expansion model, WINGS headquarters will maintain tight quality control on new regions and schools.

At age 40, Ginny Deerin was recognized as a success – a political strategist and a top executive at a marketing firm. But her perspective suddenly shifted after hearing a speech by Johnnetta Cole, president of Spelman College. Cole’s message was that ‘if we couldn’t envision ourselves soaring beyond the cage – we never would. It’s up to us to fly.” Ginny realized she had lived her life as the consummate Number 2 person, limiting her possibilities - she was always working behind the scenes, never taking the lead.

Inspired to go through a period of self-evaluation, Ginny recognized the need for social and emotional skills – empathy, the ability to communicate constructively, and to listen carefully. Not only did she lack some of these skills, many others did too. Ready to lead, Ginny consulted with experts in the field and designed a curriculum. As Ginny gathered steam, she realized the real need for this programing was in at-risk populations, where maximum impact could be made.

We value partners from a variety of avenues. Other community based organizations, such as the Girl Scouts, Earth Force, and Junior Achievement, are frequent collaborators with Choice Time and enrichment activities for our students. Community volunteers are also strong partners, especially during Academic Center. This allows for our students to develop positive relationships with successful individuals and for them to receive additional academic support. Another strong area of partnership comes in the form of in-kind program donations.

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

WINGS relies on its strong staff, Board of Directors, and community supporters. The staff is dedicated to achieving the listed milestones, in and out of their regular work days. They are then able to lean on an active and involved Board for guidance and support. As we expand, we will certainly rely on the for-profit growth experiences certain members have. The final components are our community supporters and stakeholders. Without local buy-in to what we’re doing, expansion will not be possible.

A key need is to increase the number of advocates of WINGS – the more people who know about our program and are willing to speak on our behalf, the easier entry into new markets will be. A strong presence will help when it comes to our development efforts to support new programs. Moving forward, we are happy to offer support to complimentary organizations with aligned goals of student success.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

While Rwanda has made vast strides in development since it was plagued with conflict in the 1990s, there is still a lack of female empowerment present. Young girls in particular in Rwanda often lack the confidence and power that their male counterparts possess, which hinders them from growing and feeling visible in society. Thus, there is a great need to equip this vulnerable population with the tools necessary to become proactive participants in both their country’s future as well as their own. By empowering women, Rwanda’s population will gain movers and shakers necessary for the country to develop and grow.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

In an effort to generate gender equality to promote development in Rwanda, Search for Common Ground (SFCG) established a radio program called Ni Nyampinga, which targets girls ages 10 through 19 nationwide. Originally launched in 2008 as Urungano (“New Generation”), Ni Nyampinga was renamed in December 2011. Nyampinga means “miss” in Kinyarwanda, the national language, and refers to a female role model that is well-rounded, proactive, and promotes the potential for women to end poverty. Reflecting this term, the radio program works to empower and encourage girls to find their voices. Radio is the most popular and readily-available source of information in Rwanda, and Ni Nyampinga is taking advantage of this format to forge a space where girls can gather positive qualities and become leaders.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Each week, Ni Nyampinga is aired for thirty minutes on five different radio stations nationwide. It is designed like a live magazine meant to open up channels of communication for girls, with each episode comprised of a variety of materials and formats. The show includes culture, health topics, advice, and individual stories. Roundtable discussions, field reporting, and one-on-one interviews are utilized throughout each episode to cover a particular theme through multiple perspectives. Additionally, the show encourages listeners to call in to ask questions and provide opinions so they can exercise their voices and feel as though they are heard.

In charge of each episode is a team of twelve girls, between the ages of 17 and 22, that take on the roles of presenter, reporter, researcher, and editor. The program benefits from girls leading because listeners identify them as their peers, therefore enhancing the legitimacy of the program. Additionally, by putting girls in charge of the ideas and what should be discussed, the program goes right to the source to determine what will strike a chord in the target population. Finally, as proactive leaders of a national radio program, the girls inspire their listenership to become proactive leaders themselves.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles. Quais seriam os desafios impostos por esses concorrentes que impactariam no seu sucesso ou crescimento?

There are no other radio programs broadcast throughout Rwanda that target this same population. Other radio programming is focused on disseminating news, music, and sports information to the general population. Ni Nyampinga is therefore the only program which focuses not only on girls, but also on empowering them. While there are organizations throughout the country that are focused on the same objective of strengthening female youth capacity, in actuality they benefit SFCG’s own efforts given the end goals are shared. The only challenge these organizations could pose would be if they established radio programs that directly compete with Ni Nyampinga.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Though the program is now operating under a different name, called Ni Nyampinga rather than Urungano, there is still a strong listenership nationwide. Awareness of the new name is beginning to build, and the amount of call-ins is beginning to increase. This suggests that girls feel the program is worth listening to because it provides important and useful information. Furthermore, because the program is linked to a new magazine, also called Ni Nyampinga which covers similar topics, the program is gaining listeners who have been introduced to the magazine. This dual strategy reaches more girls, thus yielding greater awareness and success. The high interest expressed by the target population in the program indicates that the efforts of Ni Nyampinga are vital and valuable.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

As the girls who comprise the listener base get older with the program, we expect that the ideals promoted in the program will become ingrained within them, in turn enticing them to take action and put what they have learned into practice. Additionally, as Ni Nyampinga gains reputability, we anticipate being able to delve into deeper subjects that may be considered too taboo for girls to discuss with their peers. As an outlet for this type of subject matter, Ni Nyampinga will be able to break barriers that currently prevent girls from understanding various issues and confronting them head-on.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

An issue which may act as a barrier to the success of the project is donor funding. The original program, Urungano, ran out of funding, which brought the project to a standstill. While it was picked up again and restructured by Girl Hub, there is always the potential of funds running out. This can be overcome by continuing to promote the program so that its effects can be widely seen, thereby indicating the necessity of the funds. SFCG will conduct periodic evaluations which measure program success and will be presented to the donor to signify accomplishment and future growth.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo. [125 palavras]

The solution came out of a brainstorming session by the Search for Common Ground Rwandan team, which aimed to find a way to discuss the challenges and conflicts affecting young girls. When searching for tools that could ensure the implementation of a project on a large scale, it was determined that radio programming would be the most effective in achieving this. Furthermore, radio programming can be both a serious and fun source of information, which gives it mass appeal. Urungano was thus born out of the desire to create a safe, comfortable outlet that had previously not existed for girls to discuss issues directly affecting them. Ni Nyampinga subsequently developed from this, taking the concept of radio programming for girls a step further in an attempt to broaden the subjects covered and enhance effectiveness.

SFCG has partnered with Girl Hub on Ni Nyampinga, an initiative that works to ensure girls are directly involved in the design and implementation of the programs that affect them. The partnership includes a constant flow of information, actions, and results so that the different portions of Ni Nyampinga align. The radio portion run by SFCG and the magazine portion run by Girl Hub are meant to complement one another in order to maximize effectiveness.

Qual o perfil da equipe (colaboradores, voluntários etc.) que vai garantir o cumprimento das metas de crescimento identificadas por você na seção ‘Impacto Social’?

The team that is focused on both sustaining and growing Ni Nyampinga consists of 12 girls that design and host each episode, the SFCG producer who coordinates all activities, and the staff at Girl Hub that meet with the SFCG Ni Nyampinga team once a week to ensure progress. Additionally, evaluators will be utilized to conduct evaluations in order to determine growth milestones are achieved.

The most vital way Ni Nyampinga can be supported is through collaboration. By coordinating with other initiatives that possess a similar objective of empowering girls, the project can continue to expand and become more effective. SFCG is eager to forge mutually beneficial partnerships that will enhance opportunities to achieve development and gender equality.

Tell us about your personal background. Why are you passionate about this issue? Making an idea a reality takes innovation, dedication and strong leadership. Do you have the necessary entrepreneurial skills to realize your vision?

Since starting university I have always been surprised by the sometimes alarming gap between those people interested in business, technology and entrepreneurship and those with a real ethical drive. This particularly surprised me at Cambridge, where I studied History and Management, as I had expected there to be a more direct correlation between highly educated people and social conscience.
It was my desire to find like minded individuals and inspire others that first drew me into the world of social entrepreneurship.
Since then I have set up two social ventures, the first of which (AIP) I am entering into the competition.
The second was a student organization called Beyond Profit which aimed to empower the next generation to change the way business is done in the future. The theory is that through the new businesses young people create and the attitudes they take into the job market the whole ethos driving business will increasingly accept the need for social and environmental sustainability. Through a diverse program of speaker events, workshops, networking sessions and more the organization acquired over 1000 members which continues to grow since I moved on from the organization.
For this venture I was awarded a Social Entrepreneurship Catalyst Award by Unltd and named as part of Striding Out's Future 100.
I firmly believe the dual experience of setting up these two ventures means I will be able to realize the long term vision for AIP.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Much of Africa is in poverty due to a lack of new enterprise development and an overreliance on aid donors. University students possess some of the greatest potential to create these new enterprises but often lack the skills, support and funding to make their ideas a reality and drive economic growth in their home nations.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The mission of the African Innovation Prize is to facilitate this new entrepreneurship by encouraging university students from African countries to commercialize ideas and innovations; we achieve this by creating a pan-African organization that provides inspiration, training and seed funding through business plan competitions for university students across the continent.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Our primary activity is the business plan competition which runs across two phases.

Phase 1 demands that students generate innovative business ideas and communicate them in under 250 words. The best ideas in this “Best Idea Challenge” round win the local currency equivalent of £50. This phase has a separate winner at each university in order to maximise coverage.
The primary aim here is to inspire students and raise awareness that entrepreneurship is a viable option. The impact can be huge with the Kigali Institute of Technology alone receiving over 100 entrants and over 250 students registered to attend a series of training events we ran in July 2011.

Phase 2 demands a more rigorous analysis, writing a full business plan in under 1500 words. Successful participants need to clearly identify and quantify a market niche, as well as build a team to make the idea happen. A successful team wins the local currency equivalent of £500.
The primary aim here is to help students transform their ideas into fully fledged businesses that they can launch following the competition.
This transition has been proven to work with both our Phase 2 winners in 2010 and 2011 going on to launch their businesses.

O Mercado: Quem são os seus pares e concorrentes? Identificar os outros que também estão trabalhando para solucionar as mesmas necessidades que você e o que você faz de diferente em relação a eles.

Other business plan competitions and enterprise development organizations do provide funding and support in the East African region. Some examples of competing business plan competitions include Technoserve, Legatum African Entrepreneurship Awards and the Virgin Unite Awards. AIP’s key differentiating factor is that we specifically target university students only and give these young people the best possible chance to actually gain skills, receive support and ultimately win funding for their business.
AIP works with operating partners across the public, NGO and private company spectrum.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

What is the social impact you have had to date and how you measure it?

Our first social metric is our inspiration and awareness impact which we measure through recording the number of students who enter our competition and who register their interest for training and other events. Since we launched we have had over 200 entrants and had another 250 students attend training or other events.
The second metric is funding impact measured by the amount of money we award through the competition.
AIP will have awarded student entrepreneurs over £5000 by the end of this year's competition.
The final metric is business creation measured by the number of new businesses that result from AIP's activities.
AIP has directly helped create 4 new businesses and organizations since 2009.

What barriers might hinder the success of your business? How do you plan to overcome them?

The political climate is currently very pro enterprise in our operating geographies but this could be subject to volatility. In response AIP builds strong lasting relationships with local non-governmental organizations and aims to work directly with students rather than solely relying on institutional support.
The economic climate can make funding the competition more challenging. In response AIP diversifies its income streams and develops a broad array of funding partners from a cross section of private and public organizations.

How does your model address financial, social, and environmental sustainability?

Financial sustainability is addressed by developing a three tiered funding strategy (see details in next section). Underlying this is our successful strategy of developing long term funding relationships rather than becoming overly reliant on short term solutions.
Social and environmental sustainability primarily affects AIP in terms of how we engage with students and local partners. Firstly, AIP aims to only work with organizations that uphold the same commitment to high social and environmental standards. Secondly, AIP seeks to actively engage local partners rather than work with external organizations. AIP seeks to foster a culture of responsibility and independence that is central to successful enterprise development.

Awareness & learning

How do you see social entrepreneurship contributing to the improvement of developing countries?

Social entrepreneurship has the potential to enable developing countries to become industry leaders in the more socially and environmentally aware twenty first century economy. Corporate social responsibility is no longer simply a marketing ploy but now represents an important business function to limit inherent business risk and to operate more efficiently. Entrepreneurs in developing countries are already demonstrating a talent for spotting opportunities in the more socially conscious economy. For example, East Africa is renowned for possessing several high impact solar energy start ups.

What aspects of your stay in Uganda as part of the competition do you think you will find most challenging and rewarding?

Through the AIP my experience has been primarily working with the top 2%-5% of the educated population who are bright, ambitious and enthusiastic. This is hugely inspiring and rewarding because social impact is often seen very quickly once these students are given the necessary resources to excel.
Living and working with Ugandan farmers will be challenging because it will be a much more direct experience of the poverty that AIP is trying to help local students alleviate through their new businesses. As a result, however, it could prove to be even more rewarding as the experience will undoubtedly demonstrate that talented entrepreneurs are working on local farms as well as studying at universities. Furthermore, having a deeper understanding of the fundamental challenges and lifestyles that local farmers face will only fuel my desire to expand my social ventures.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

TMI did a writing program at the Common Threads Youth Empowerment Workshop in Stony Point, NY. “Marisa” tells the story of sitting with her family for Christmas dinner. The grandfather proclaims, "If anyone in this family were gay, they would be dead to me." "Even if it were someone at this table, Grandpa?" "Yes, even at this table." She has lived in secret until her TMI workshop where she could share her story without fear of being disowned for being who she is.
Marisa is not alone. Between 30 and 40% of homeless youths identify as LGBTQ because they are kicked out of their homes or because they feel so uncomfortable that they leave.
Between 30 and 40% of LGB youth have attempted suicide. LGBTQ youth are four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

In a nationwide survey by Kosciw and Diaz of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network it was found that LGBTQ “students in schools with Gay Straight Alliance (groups) and other similar peer-support groups were less likely to feel unsafe, less likely to miss school, and more likely to feel that they belonged at their school than students in schools with no such clubs.”

TMI is seeking funding to bring its Page-to-Stage Workshop to LGBTQ teens in high school, homeless shelters and community organizations. LGBTQ teens will create monologues addressing issues that accompany gender and sexual identity, like: suicide, hate crimes, isolation, scorn, coming out, shame, social anxiety, dropping out and rejection from parents, family members and peers.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Writing and improvisational exercises are tailored for this group of young people, providing a forum in which to speak the truth, find self-acceptance, and gain the support necessary to navigate their adolescence. The program will begin with a TMI performance of monologues by past participants so the students can see a model of the finished product. Previous participants will also serve as role models for the teens, giving them examples of the power of using ones voice and story to create inspirational change for others. Students will then work with the organization’s artistic team Eva Tenuto, Director, Sari Botton, writer/writing instructor, and Julie Novak, improv leader. Through improvisation, a series of writing prompts and activities they will find the story they need to tell. Instructors will assist in shaping their stories into powerful, theatrical monologues about the social challenges that they face. They will then perform their polished monologues for an invited audience.

This in-depth residency will take Character Education to a whole new level, where children lead the way in taking a stand against hate, intolerance, and other destructive homophobic tendencies of bias and prejudice – while also taking a stand for themselves.

The Moth, Playback Theatre, and Risk are three organizations that are working in the field of storytelling for personal growth. The Moth has achieved much success and reaches far and wide. Playback Theatre is now international. And Risk is growing rapidly. In an age of Facebook, Twitter, Instant Messaging and Texting, there is a growing need for basic face-to-face communication. Humans crave it and the children who are growing up in this time need to be taught how to do it. What stands The TMI Project apart from these other organizations is the investment we make into each participant. Individuals are assisted in each phase of development – finding their story, telling their story and bringing their story to life. They are carried through a process with support and community, which

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In the space of two years, the TMI Project has grown from ten women sitting around a living room writing their own true stories, to booked-solid writing workshops that culminate in sold-out theater performances with lines around the block. While the instructors are not therapists, this workshop has proven to lead to personal growth and healing for its participants. Already several participants have been inspired by their work in the workshop to get sober, come out of the closet as homosexual, speak up for themselves and stop accepting emotional and physical abuse, find humor in character defects, build self-esteem, and pursue therapy.

In just two months, the TMI Project raised $20,000 through a Kickstarter campaign as seed money for becoming a non-profit that can empower teens and adults in need through its Page-to-Stage workshops.

TMI Project also competed against 10 other theater groups and won a subsidized run at the Brooklyn Lyceum Theater, scheduled for March, 2012.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

One of the main barriers is that the three main players of The TMI Project are still working in other positions to make ends meet and have not been able to dive into the project full time, which is what the work is calling for at this point. To deal with this we have created a fund-raising committee, hired a grant writer and non-profit developer, and are perusing opportunities like this one to help us become self-sufficient.

When The TMI Project was developing Too Much Information, I suspected we were onto something. Once we performed I knew what we were doing was very special. The participants took stories they were afraid to share with one person because of guilt or shame and shared them powerfully with 300 people. They were received with admiration and respect not disgust and judgement and became able to see themselves and their story in new light. One participant shared, “I now have a greater understanding of who I am and I have a more profound empathy for others as we all share our stories together in the workshops.” After the show I talked with audience members and many were crying - not from sadness; in fact, they had just laughed through much of the evening. They felt inspired, a sense of relief and freedom. From hearing other people bravely share their truth they felt cracked open and given permission to do the same thing. It was then I knew this was something that we needed to keep doing.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

In the slums where majority of the poor resides in, taking children to school has been a luxary to many single parents who could barely make ends meet. As a result, many children as young as four years find their ways in to the streets to become street children. This becomes the norm as many parents would rather have their children in the streets than in the classrooms. The need to have children in the classrooms and be mentors of others made SIDAREC to start early childhood education program. Most of those children going to the street did not go because they like it, but because circumstances forced them. To do this, we wanted to start a mentor program for children where other children instead of going to the streets would be a reference point for them to asked to be taken to school.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

The solution to this problem was to start a pri-school and provide single parents with start up capital to start an income generation projects. We recorn that having children in the classroom was not going to be enough without looking at the root cause of the problem which we found to be deeply rooted in the family. We also started liaisong with parent to have the children provided with a meal in the morning (breakfast) and lunch. This we we did as most of the children would come to classes and start sleeping. This we realised was because, some of them had not slept, or did not have something to eat at night. We have since replicated Early Childhood program in to other two slums in Nairobi. With partnership between SIDAREC and parents, the pre schools has grown to be the envy of many other parents.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

In 1996, majority of children in the slums opted to go to the streets to beg, either on their own or at the behest of their parents. This is because primary schooling was not free and majority of them, though they wished to be in classroom like the rest of their peers, could not. As young people who grew up in the slums, we realised the duty bestowed on us to reduce more children going to the streets.We also realised that it would be difficult removing the children in the streets and so we came up with a program that reduces the number of children going to the streets while at the same time giving their parents incentives.
Children that started the pre-school in 1998 performed well in their national exams and gone to good secondary schools. These children have acted as mentors since whenever they are back in holidays, they would come to tutor their peers and mentor them at the same time. The community library managed by SIDAREC has given the children reason to work hard since they meet other colleagues from other slums with similar situations like them who believe that education is the key to prosperity. With pre-school, parents have been made to take care of their children through the support SIDAREC provides, The number of children going to the streets from the slums SIDAREC operates in have dwindle as many children prefer schooling, children have become their own mentors, bringing many children to learn at the SIDAREC Centers and Libraries. Thus, when Kenya experienced famine in 2011, most of the children were in the forefront asking their parents/community to donate.

SIDAREC's peers are the private pri-schools and primary schools within the slums. Because of limited space in our centres, SIDAREC can only take certain number of children at any particular time, this is why private schools have come in to fill the void that SIDAREC cannot fill. With primary schools, SIDAREC act as the main feeder to these schools by channeling students that performs well in the national exams because they leave the centres well grounded. SIDAREC complement what private pre-schools offers. The need is huge, and the entry of primary schools to offer pre-school activities will enable many children to start schooling early on in life. This is the challenges faced by players as the government hopes to have every school in the country to have pre-schools to accommodate more.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

There has been a marked decrease of the children coming from the slums going in the streets; their has been competition among the children to do well in school to go to a good high school; many children has been like mentors, espcially when they ask social workers to go and visit homes of their peers who have family problems. This shows they care about each other. The fact that they bring other children in the centres to play and learn with others shows they empathise with the situations of what other children leave in, but would do well to encourage them to visit the centre for support. With the help of microenterprise project, many children has been able to keep their children in school and even pay up to secondary level. In 2009, 40 children in Pumwani slums studying in different primary schools got over 400 marks in National examination. This was the first time any child in this slums ever got 400 marks. The much they have gone was 250 marks out of 500.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

We project the following:
An increase of number of children doing well in primary school as a result of given a head start in education. We expect 300 children to score above 400 marks.
Number of increased children attending Early childhood education in the slums, and good performance because of children attending schools early in their age.
Competition among the children, that enable them to perform well in schools as a result of reading materials available through SIDAREC mobile library and community centres with library facilities.
Improved earning by mothers, enabling children to finish their education.
Reduced number of children going to the streets to beg or loiter in the streets because their parents can not afford them shelter, education, clothing and food.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The slums SIDAREC operates in are huge, with populations ranging from 70,000 - 1.1 miliion people. Its not easy to help everyone, and so managing the expectation of everyone. To manage this number & expectation, we partner with others and refers them where we cannot help.
The other issue is funding. SIDAREC is a small organisation that is trying to reach out to many people with little resources we have.
SIDAREC has resource centres. Already, these centres have no space when one come late for the services we have like library, Computer training and internet services. There are those who come as early as 7am and leave at 7pm so that they dont loose space. To do this, we have allocated time schedule that one can be at the centre to allow others to access the facilities.

When we started SIDAREC, we were just young people trying to find our way out. We did not have anyone to look up to as role models. Because of poverty, many young people ended up in bad companies, robing and stealing from people. These were the 'role' models of many children growing up in the slums. For those kids, going to the streets was another option. We wanted to be different, and so started SIDAREC. The first project was ECD to have children not in the streets join and recieve education. We were written off as 'what can these young people we have seen growing up here with us do that even the government has not been able to do? We proved everyone wrong. 15 years down the line, 3 pre-schools have been constructed, with over 8,000 children passing through the program. 200 of these children have ended up in presitigious high schools like Starehe Boys, most of whom could have been in the streets or mugging if it were not for this program.

Our school has an approximate 80% racially diverse and 74% free and reduced lunch/Title 1 population. I wanted to emphasize my students’ academic growth through student support for their families. All Title 1 schools in the country could effectively utilize this program.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Students who earn 90% or above on significant assignments are given a Family Star. Once a month or so, I open the Family Star Store, where families can redeem their Family Stars for basic household necessities – food, toiletries, and cleaning agents.

Every two weeks, students in my remedial reading class are given an Aimesweb probe to determine their growth in that interval. Students in that class actively work to raise their scores in order to earn a Family Star. This class is especially impressive, as they are reading three or more years below grade level but are focused and determined to compete successfully and earn a Family Star. Because of their poor reading abilities, most academic rewards have been unavailable to them before the Family Star program. However, their confidence is soaring with every award they earn.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The focus of the Family Star program is two-fold and circular: Students help their families obtain basic household supplies - food, cleaning agents, and toiletries - by excelling in significant academic assignments. Because the requirements are stringent for earning a Family Star, 90% or above, a student must figure out what is important, what he is required to do in order to excel, and then follow through. The student's successful efforts are hightly visible, motivating, and satisfying.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

I expect to see improvement in the grades and skills of every individual student, greater and more consistent parental involvement, and an awakened interest and appreciaton of schooling opportuniites. These data will be found in the students' grades, test results, behavior reports, and attendance reports. Parental involvement will be measured by an increase in positive school contacts.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

The major barrier to the growth of this project is funding. The first Family Star event costs approximately $400 to set up, ample for my class load of approximately 120 students, and another $150-$250 monthly to replace inventory. A secure source of funding will mean that this program can be offered to our entire school, or at least through one department/subject area. Additional funding will result in the expansion of the program; however, I will continue to privately fund the Family Star for my own students and seek funding for the entire school.

The Family Star was created when I realized that my students were very close to their families, willing to work for them even when they were reluctant to work for themselves. Many had come from distant lands; their lives in America, which still involved significant struggles, were so much better than their previous lives in their native countries. In order to motivate my students academically, I rewarded those students who excelled on important assignments with a Family Star, which could be redeemed in basic household necessities – food, cleaning agents, toiletries.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Current trends in educational policy and practice are imbalanced and ill-suited to empower today’s youth as effective and engaged individuals and citizens. The heavy emphasis placed on STEM (science, technology, education, and math) has left little room for teaching the humanities and other fields. As well, education has turned into a one-size-fits-all institution relying on standardized testing and rote learning. Yet research demonstrates that exploring subjects like philosophy, civics, and learning through experience, expression, dialogue, and service best facilitates self and social knowledge (SSK). Only SSK promotes critical thinking, empathy, discourse, and social action - skills needed by active, aware, and flourishing individuals and members of communities.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

PEACE Project counterbalances current educational trends by providing an experiential and service-based learning program for youth (grade 6-12) focused upon the intersections of philosophy and social justice (i.e. identity, responsibility, democracy). Our curriculum is designed by undergraduates studying philosophy and/or education led by faculty in both fields. Via philosophical and social inquiry, reflective dialogue, informal group learning (visual and performance art, play, simulation) and integrated social action projects, PEACE promotes SSK and skills of analytic thinking and communication, perspective taking/sharing, self-reflection and regulation, and habits of social cooperation crucial for developing empathy. Our pedagogy is student-centered, incorporating multiple learning styles and socially engaged. Our approach reaches youth, provides current/future teachers skills to empower students, and guides research connecting college faculty to schools and community organizations.

O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias

Step 1: PEACE staff and faculty train PEACE Educators (philosophy/education majors) in curriculum development, informal education, and exploring philosophy/social justice with youth. Educators develop the skills and knowledge for promoting SSK, critical thinking, belief/value sharing, dialogue, and self/social awareness through activity based discussions.

Step 2: Educators create a 10-lesson unit exploring topics of social justice through a philosophical lens. The pilot unit "On Identity and Society" includes lessons and exploration of thinkers such as: 'What is Personal Identity?'(John Locke), 'Responsibility, Justice, and Difference' (Peter Singer), and 'Bridging the Gap' (Martin Buber).

Step 3: Educators work with school/community partners to test and implement the PEACE unit. In this year's pilot, we are working with over 45 NYC students at 2 partner sites. One lesson has students explore the role of empathy and mutual understanding in democratic discourse. Students photograph their peers to represent identity-based perspectives on social issues. Students then exhibit and engage in philosophical inquiry to practice the skills required for public dialogue.

Step 4: 'The Summit', a day of scholarship and service, joins PEACE students with the college community to explore issues and take part in community projects. Pilot theme: Identity, Discourse, and Democracy.

Step 5: Feedback will be conducted on training, curriculum, and Summit by all participants via quantitative and anecdotal evaluations. PEACE staff and faculty then analyze/report on collected data.

PEACE has few competitors and peers. Pre-college philosophy initiatives by Montclair State and Mount Holyoke engage elementary students by reflecting on children's stories through critical dialogue while programs at other colleges (NYU, Washington U, UNC) do 'outreach' by having high school students take college-level courses or participate in 'ethics bowls'. Few of these programs incorporate social/emotional development or civic engagement as PEACE does - instead, merely focusing on the cognitive domain. Yet, current social justice and moral/character education initiatives lack the critical/analytic dimension to encourage their goals and develop thought. PEACE is the only program bringing together faculty/experts/majors in philosophy and education with communities to empower youth.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

PEACE has already begun to make a significant impact in the 6 months our pilot has been operating. Winfield F is one of the 45 students (grades 6-12) who has participated in PEACE Project at one of our 2 partner sites. After his third PEACE lesson, he approached his Educator expressing thanks saying 'philosophy has forced me to stop, question, listen, and think about myself, others, and how to be a better person.' Winfield (and the PEACE students) are not alone in benefiting from the project. Mr. Mesidor, one of four NYC school teachers working with PEACE at a partner site, commented: 'Where was PEACE when I was preparing to teach? I'd better engage my students to connect and think deeply with one another about the social issues facing society.' Rupert H, philosophy major and one of ten undergraduates in our pilot cohort of Educators says 'this experience has made me want to work as a high school teacher'. 8 faculty members have also begun to collaborate across departments and fields.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

Our projected impact over the next three years is multidimensional. We hope to increase our number of college/school/community partners. By year three, we aim to collaborate with at least 3 colleges in total, each with their own 8 member faculty committee, 10 undergraduate Educators, and 3 partners (working with 6 teachers and 30-40 students at each site). Also, we would like to develop a website to host our current blog ('the diablogue') and make our curricular materials available for other colleges and teachers to bring PEACE into their communities. PEACE also hopes to expand to summer camps, youth shelters, and juvenile correctional facilities as part of our community partnerships. We also aim to develop an accredited professional development program for NYC school teachers.

Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?

Legislation like No Child Left Behind, America COMPETES, and Race to the Top has turned away private/government foundations from funding projects focused on teaching the humanities and other fields as well as initiatives not directly aimed at improving achievement on standardized tests. And, schools and community organizations are less willing to partner with and implement such projects for fear of losing their own funding. Our 3-prong approach to overcome such barriers is:
1: Integrate social media/tech component within PEACE service projects to attract schools and foundations to partner/sponsor PEACE.
2: Conduct research demonstrating the benefits of an experiential/service learning philosophy program to guide public policy/perception.
3: Increase crowd-source and foundation outreach.

My 'Aha!' moment came about rather organically. A few years ago, when I began to study philosophy at Brooklyn College, I also began to take on new responsibilities at a local community center in Brooklyn, developing and leading informal and experiential education programming for children and youth and designing and facilitating teen leadership groups focused on social justice and political action. After integrating topics from my philosophy studies into my youth work, I discovered that an experiential/service learning philosophy education challenged and engaged my students. My teens became more aware of and analytic about social issues, empathetic, and involved in community/civic action. Inspired, I continued this work on my own - unaware of the preexisting pre-college philosophy movement. But, when I learned that other pre-college philosophy programs existed yet did not incorporate service learning, group work, or cross-departmental collaboration, I realized the potential for PEACE.

A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti also has a privately funded education system. A part in breaking the cycle of poverty is to educate the youth. The children of Haiti can change the future of their country. A second part in breaking the cycle of poverty is to teach self-sustainability. In order to educate Haitian youth, parents need to be able to fund their child’s education.

A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!

Healing Hearts 4 Haiti provides a business model for the Haitian students to learn the concept of self-sustainability at a young age. The youth business model is adapted from that made and used by the students of St. Ann School in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA to fund global education projects. The money earned through this partnership will provide scholarships for students of Ecole le Bon Samaritain in Haiti.

St. Ann School students began their business in 2007 by making and selling bracelets to fund education in Sierra Leone. In 2009, when the earthquake devastated Haiti, the students turned their efforts to disaster relief—including funding the tuition of a Haitian earthquake victim to attend St. Ann School. Last year, the students expanded their business and opened a school store where they sell hand-crafted items and school supplies. The income generated by the store currently supports education in Kenya and Haiti. Start-up costs in 2007 were funded by a sponsor, but since, the student-run “business” has been self-sustaining. We have raised thousands of dollars to assist impoverished global communities. Our profits have been channelled through Free The Children to help communities in Sierra Leone, Kenya and Haiti and through The United Haitian American Society to aid Haiti. We are proposing that a model similar to ours be set up at Ecole le Bon Samaritain in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Here, the students will make crafts and export them to the United States to be sold by the students of St. Ann School in their school store. The money raised will directly benefit the students of Ecole le Bon Samaritain.

Fashion designer, Donna Karan, has a similar model in Haiti called Urban Zen. Utilizing the artisans, natural resources and the production potential of the country, she has created a business model to help communities learn how to sustain themselves. The products produced by the Haitian artisans are sold in the United States. Donna Karan’s model focuses on the power of adults in the Haitian community. Our model focuses on how children can also contribute to the future of their country. Donna Karan has stated that she hopes to inspire others to do what she is doing.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The students of St. Ann School have created a self-sustaining, business model that has enabled them to fund education in Sierra Leone, Kenya and Haiti. This model has also allowed them to help with earthquake relief in Haiti and drought relief in East Africa. In total, between 2007 and 2012, the students at St. Ann School have raised over $15,000 to help global communities. These monies have been channelled through Free The Children and The United Haitian American Society.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 1 - 3 anos?

It costs $250 per year to fund one child’s education at Ecole le Bon Samaritain, in Carrefour, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. With the help of their counterparts at St. Ann School in the United States selling the Haitian childrens’ crafts, the goal is to raise:
$1000 in year 1 to fund the education of 4 students at Ecole le Bon Samaritain in Haiti;
$2000 in year 2 to fund the education of 8 students at Ecole le Bon Samaritain in Haiti; and
$4000 in year 3 to fund the education of 16 students at Ecole le Bon Samaritain in Haiti.

After 3 years, Healing Hearts 4 Haiti intends to expand to include distribution on a national and global level; including, but not limited to setting up a virtual store through a student-run website and distributing to local and national stores.

The middle school students of St. Ann School created this business model for themselves after watching Oprah’s Building A Dream special about her leadership academy in South Africa in 2007. The idea to expand their own business model to Haiti came after watching Oprah’s special on Haiti where she interviewed Donna Karan. The idea was presented by the students’ Mock Trial coach, Reine Boyer (a Haitian-American). The students and the administration of St. Ann School thought it was a fantastic idea to expand and adapt their model to be used by the students of Ecole le Bon Samaritain.
