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

Inner city violence and the heart ache that follows.The youth in the inner city are both dying and going to jail at a alarming rate leaving voids in both the victims and accused families mainly because they have no empathy for those whom they may cross paths with on a day to day basis.

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

To offer the kids that place of peace to teach them to learn to enjoy life.To teach them to dream and aspire.To teach them to care for their fellow man, to respect both themselves and those whom they might come across. Reach the youth and give that positive influence that so many are missing.We try to teach them not to be fighters and shooters but to be debaters and problem solvers.That they can disagree with each other and no one has to get hurt.An disagreement in this community is normally followed by some act of violence.Another way we get the kids to come together is thru sports.Now the key to this is to take two known rivals and team them up.For example we would start them off in something none contact like doubles table tennis against two other known rivals.After a few games you can almost see the change from foe to friend.The more we get them to think we and not me the more they start to empathize for each other. I'm determined to reach as many as possible.

The day Jovan's 19 year old brother was shot and killed he was at night school trying to obtain enough credits to graduate.Two weeks later when a couple of his brothers friends were arrested for gun possession he was walking across the stage.I would like to think that the influence I had on Javon prevented his mom from losing two sons.While Javon a mostly D student was never a angel himself he was the first one to say let the police handle it.A year prior and his mother would have definitely loss two sons.When Javon was asked why he didnt want to retaliate he said there was no need for anyone else's family to suffer the way his had.

The jail system is said to be a place for rehabilitation.But how do you rehabilitate a 17 year old with a 20 year sentence.That child has already lost what little bit of a young life he has.The system is setup to punish the accused after the crime has happen witch in most cases is to late.On one hand you could say that stricter laws could prevent so many crimes from occuring but that would be impling that kids actually knew the law or even cared.Our approach is strictly before not after.We cant wait to a crime happens to care about our community.Until they are taught to think about their actions the word empathy doesn't exsist.We teach that every action has a reaction and to empathize for the person on the end of their reaction.We teach them to look at every day life from both sides.

Our Aha moment would have to be Javon Harris walking across the stage in spite of losing his older brother two weeks earlier.Javon was no angel himself but to see him stay focused when he could have easily taken another route was overwhelming.I think at his graduation his mom cried more because of what her son didn't do.

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

In most schools today, the attempt to facilitate good behavior in students is implemented through a system of rewards and punishments. This punitive approach alienates young people, particularly those who are most at-risk and vulnerable. Because it does not facilitate the internalization of good decision making skills in young people, it does not result in long-term behavioral changes. Increasingly, research (such as that described in Daniel Pink’s book Drive), demonstrates that intrinsic rewards are far more effective in developing motivation and productivity in people. In the context of schools, this issue comes up all the time, and it is never as critical as it is when behavioral issues and a healthy, peaceful classroom culture are at stake.

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

Our solution is based on a vision of education where schools foster the skills young people need to be productive contributors to our democracy. We want to recapture the true meaning of the word discipline, that is, instruction that perfects mental faculties and moral character. Critical thinking, thoughtful and reflective decision making, and a willingness to examine the status quo are key competencies that our systemic approach fosters. Most discipline systems are about controlling young people. Our approach teaches the skills and habits of reflection that young people need to behave well and make a positive contribution to their communities. Holistic Discipline provides the support, framework, practice, and feedback to support schools in building community practices that are aligned with SEL—including, critically, at times of conflict and when misbehavior arises, using these challenging instances as teachable moments.

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

Morningside Center’s Holistic Discipline model has two components that form a systemic approach to dealing with discipline in a way that is aligned with social and emotional learning:
a) School level: Developing a school-wide discipline plan aligned with SEL
We help schools develop a school-wide approach to discipline that is consistent with social and emotional learning. Committee members (representing a cross section of the school community) get a thorough introduction to the Holistic Discipline model and discuss how to tailor it to their school’s needs.
b) Classroom level: Coaching teachers in Holistic Discipline
Our staff developer provides coaching for the teacher aimed at improving student behavior and creating a positive climate for learning in ways that support students’ social and emotional learning. This approach goes far beyond “classroom management” because it takes into account all the factors that affect student behavior and classroom climate, including the format of the class, the pacing, the teachers’ ability to connect the material to students’ lives, and the many other ways the teacher interacts with students.
Our staff developer observes the teacher in the classroom using a framework that breaks effective approaches to discipline into a number of dimensions. She then works with the teacher to identify the teacher’s strengths and the dimensions in which she needs additional support. She suggests possible approaches for the teacher to try, and partners with the teacher to improve her practice through continued observation and debriefing sessions.

The PBIS, or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support system, is the most challenging competitor we face. Adopted by many schools, PBIS often includes incentive based rewards for positive behavior. Holistic Discipline aims to develop students’ skills and internal controls to gain intrinsic satisfaction from behaving positively. Research demonstrates that the “carrot/stick” paradigm is not an effective framework for encouraging motivation, but rather that intrinsic motivators are a much more powerful drive for high level performance. While our approach requires more work “up front,” it is a worthwhile investment for sustainable results.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

The impact has been overwhelmingly positive! Morningside Center piloted Holistic Discipline in 8 high-need middle schools in the Bronx and Brooklyn with approximately 50 teachers last year. Survey results reflected the following:
• 96% of teachers agreed or strongly agreed that the workshops were useful.
• 96% of teachers said that the workshops were either good or excellent overall.
• 97% of teachers said that the SD provided useful insights, techniques and skills.
• 94% of teachers reported an increased awareness of their students’ social and emotional needs.
• 89% of teachers reported strengthened their relationships with their students.
• 91% of teachers reported having more tools to handle conflicts between themselves and students.
• 92% reported an overall improvement in classroom climate.

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

Over the next year, Morningside Center will finalize the written materials and guides for the Holistic Discipline program. To facilitate this process and to continue to grow the initial pilot, over the next year we will implement the program in two more schools. In three years, the program will be solidly validated as an effective method for promoting empathetic schools and positioned for national expansion.

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

School budgets have been shrinking. Because much of Morningside Center’s income comes from direct services to schools, this reality could be a potential obstacle to our plans for expanding the Holistic Discipline program. We are vigorously seeking foundation and other private monies to fill the gap. We have strong relationships with several major foundations; we will continue to cultivate these relationships, and to pursue new relationships to fill the anticipated income gap. Additionally, through our uniquely strong relationships with schools and school leaders, we are well positioned to anticipate and respond to new needs.

Holistic Discipline is revolutionary, but there has not been a single “aha!” moment. Morningside Center has been implementing SEL programs in schools for nearly 30 years. We work with every constituency in a school community (teachers, administrators, support staff, parents), and have had profound results with our work. We created the Holistic Discipline to address a common problem: even in schools committed to SEL, there is a breakdown in respect and empathy when students engage in challenging behavior. Rather than using these moments to foster learning, self-reflection, and healing, discipline devoid of SEL skills is too often about control and punishment. “Repeat and escalating offenses” are the result. Schools come to us over and over again to ask for help with classroom management and school culture issues, Holistic Discipline has been the organic outgrowth of our work.

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

Every parent wants his or her child to attend a safe school yet, according to a 2008 report from the National Center for Education Statistics, 32 percent of students ages 12 to 18 reported having been bullied at school during the past school year. Students as young as 11 years old have committed suicide in order to avoid school and the bullies who wait for them there. Schools are attempting to address these issues without much success.

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

Peaceful Schools - NC is a project undertaken by the NC Psychoanalytic Foundation to explore and initiate an evidence based program in schools to support peaceful learning environments. The focus is to shift programming away from the bully or the victim. Instead, bystanders are empowered by creating an approach which contributes to the general mental, emotional, and physical health of the school. The "Create a Peaceful School Learning Environment" (CAPSLE) approach offers advantages over other programs including:
1> Involves all members of the school community including students, teachers, administrators, and parents.
2> All students receive education in physical, mental, and emotional techniques for channeling aggressive impulses.
3> Bystanders are empowered to act responsibly.
4> Teachers receive training to support consistency of the program.
5> Parents receive training to create a shared approach.
6> CAPSLE recognizes that there is no "one size fits all" curriculum.

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

Peaceful Schools-NC is an evidence-based, grassroots, pro-active approach that successfully decreases bullying. There are numerous awareness campaigns and curricula designed to address bullying, but most have not been proven effective at decreasing bullying.

To begin addressing the complexity of this issue, members of school communities must understand their role in intervention and prevention—creating “buy-in” among teachers, administrators, students, and parents—so that risk factors are identified and responded to by the appropriate party and in an effective and timely manner. Children who bully often act out due to problems within their home, lack of social skills, and insecurities.

The CAPSLE curriculum is designed as a multifaceted approach to address the many layers of bullying behavior—creating a platform for all school community members to build a more peaceful environment.

Once "buy in" has been established, Peaceful Schools-NC partners with the school to develop a custom fit program that works best in their school. Techniques that have been used successfully include:

> Peace Tables: A location in each classroom where students can talk out their problems
> Rehearsal for Life: A model where students create short plays about life situations that end in a hurtful way. The audience can then replace themselves for a character in the play and propose a new approach to the situation in hopes to change the end result.
> Aikido: Students take classes in Aikido to learn how to center themselves and channel their aggressive energy in positive ways.

Peaceful Schools-NC is the only evidence-based, conflict resolution approach in our area which involves the the whole school. Most competitors offer services for-profit as opposed to the community service efforts of our non-profit. The affordability of our services increases access to our program.

In order to strengthen a school community, we openly discuss who their current partners are and seek to include them where helpful. Establishing ourselves as a trustworthy and multifaceted resource, helps make us unique.

Our goal is for a school to stand on its own. Our challenge is helping schools shift their focus from the bully and victim to understanding their role as a bystander. The shift only occurs once “buy-in” has occurred, which takes time, growth and continued funding.

The following is a sampling of our impact:
> Over 500 students from two pilots sites feel safer at school
> The End of Grade testing at one pilot site increased from 79% to 86% in just two years. In 2011, some of their highlights included: 13% increase in 5th grade Science, 10% increase in 4th grade Math, 6% increase in 5th grade Math, 4% increase overall in Reading and a 7% increase in Math for African American students.
> Fifth graders are able to take on leadership roles and support the educational goals of the Peaceful Schools-NC Program. Over the last two years, fifth grade students have been 'Fifth Grade Helpers' at recess, buddy partners with kindergartners and project support from multiple grades.
> Students love Aikido. Aikido teaches students strategies like 'sitting like a rock' or 'standing like a tree' to help stay calm and solve conflicts.
> Staff and students ask to utilize 'Talk it Out' and the results have led to stronger social relationships.

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

Our goal is to expand into additional schools and to serve more school communities. Initial expandsion will be 1-2 schools a year but will expand more quickly over time. New schools will be mentored by schools who are already demonstrating positive results from the Peaceful Schools-NC approach.

Workshops have been developed as an introduction to the roles we each play in our community and the Peaceful Schools - NC approach.

Outreach to the media and public events such as our Back Off Bully: Be Bold Concert and conference presentations will continue to advocate, educate and shift our mindset from talking about the bully and victim to celebrating the role of the bystander and the positive choices people are taking.

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

This is simple. Funding.

Our work is currently based on dedicated volunteers. Our primary approach is to work with a school and together apply for grants to fund their year 1 and year 2. Once we reach year 3, the program becomes self sustaining with established funding in place. While this approach does work, it does not support our core organization and relies on long-term committed and passionate volunteers. Having the ability to pay a part-time staffer and trainers would further improve program integrity and consistency in our service.

Each year, the Back off Bully: Be Bold Concert connects with community businesses as sponsors of the event and our cause. As our sponsors and partners increase, we are able to raise the funding for both our programs and core organization.

NCPF board chair, Dr. David Smith, child and adult psychiatrist/psychoanalyst, attended a Peaceful Schools session during the 2009 APsaA National Conference. The developers of the project, Drs. Stuart Twemlow, Peter Fonagy and Frank Sacco presented the findings from their 20 year study. Dr. Smith felt this project had solid research and matched the mission of the foundation. He suggested the board adopt the project.

At the same time, Dr. Smith was approached by Dr. Renee Prillaman, head of Carolina Friends Middle School, about advice on bullying. He presented the Peaceful Schools research to her. She informally reviewed and tested it at her school and bought into the approach. Through her leadership and Board approval, we established ourselves as the "local" experts for bullying prevention and have helped hundreds of students feel safer at school. Students are understanding their role as a bystander and are becoming bold community citizens.

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

Basic values such as respect are critical to our social and environmental success. As children are separated from nature during their developmental stages, the relationship with life diminishes and with it their capacity for empathy to living beings and systems fades. As this disconnection increases we see problems such as Nature Deficit Disorder which touch all fundamental areas in a individuals way of relating with others, the planet and them selves. Respect for life is a premise which is based on appreciation and giving value to life. This is where nature is critical since most living beings and systems are in nature and humans are just one more species inhabiting our planet. As we disconnect from nature we lose capacity to connect empathically with other humans and living beings.

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

We create a multi level solution to generate empathy and reconnect children and youth to the Earth. We work be creating experiences that allow direct contact with nature and the opportunity to generate magical moments in nature which help to re-establish empathic connections between children and nature. At the same time we work to empower environmental action in local communities so children can not only feel their connection to the Earth, act to protect Earth's living systems and act to improve environmental and social conditions in their communities relating what we call environmental peace (peace with the Earth and its inhabitants - applying the power of empathy both ways Nature and Humans) In order to power up this action we work with local teachers and educators in the use of innovative educational methodologies that improve their capacity to share environmental and Earth knowledge in a fun and discovery oriented manner that helps create understanding and empathy.

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

Children and youth that are frequent participants in our outdoor education programs getting in touch with Colombian wilderness areas and natural places, learning first hand about natural systems,energy flows, and how humans are part of the system both positively or negatively impacting them. The learning process occurs as combined methodologies such as outdoor education (camping, hiking, nature walks, star gazing, bird watching, exploration, etc), environmental education, group discussions, journaling, inquiry based learning are put together in a setting were sharing a magical moment in nature brings the importance of respecting life and living systems into our day to day context. Empathy is the basic sense allowing reflections on respect.

We also strengthen this action by designing curriculum and activities and training teachers in rural schools how to engage children in a different way to teach them about our Earth and help them become active in their role as planetary citizens.

Participants in our programs show consistently changes in attitudes and behaviors that reflect and increased awareness of their role as Earth stewards. Additionally, by creating youth leadership groups, this children actually create an impact in their communities solving local problems that are critical to them and the communities well being. By creating healthy and constructive alternative activities for times of leisure that incorporate going into nature and play we also start working to break the Nature Deficit Disorder Cycle, improve opportunities for creative and pacific engagement.

Our competitors are divided in two distinct groups: Travel agencies and Educational Organizations. None of the existent organizations combine the elements OpEPA integrates in its educational solutions. Our competitors are so, since we share the market niche, so we compete for the resources and clients. Some tourism companies are stating they create educational programs such as ours posing a challenge since clients can not easily differentiate between offerings considering tourism has copied many of the "catch phrases" to captivate clients. Traditional educational organizations lack the techniques and methodologies to effectively combine Outdoors and Education. The lack of awareness regarding non traditional education is a challenge that gives traditional organizations an advantage.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have worked with over 50,000 students, created 72 youth action groups throughout Colombia and trained over 3,000 teachers.

Our work has been recognized by Ashoka and the World Economic Forum and the NOLS Alumni Achievement Award from the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) amount others.

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

We expect to continue increasing our coverage and start sharing our methodologies with other organizations to increase the impact of our work. In Colombia we are starting several initiatives to broaden our reach and to impact public policy including priorities for outdoor education and nature contact in children and Youth.

We have already started through OpEPA USA, as a 501(c)(3) non profit, to work with under deserved spanish speaking communities in North America. We started with a project funded by NASA on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Education focused at climate change with communities in Boulder, Colorado. This project will allow us to further create alternatives for communities in North America too.

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

Funding is a barrier that can slow us down. Due to the fact that we have created a model to self fund via educational services a baseline of the work focused and low income communities we can assure that it will continue. As we achieve funding opportunities and allies we can increase and speed up the process of development and growth of our initiative.

An additional barrier in Colombia is public safety, since as problems arise it becomes unsafe to travel and go to natural settings. We are creating an urban nature program to help reduce this risk and increase the participation of urban youth. We are working since a long time ago in establishing a risk management system that allows us to continue this work in a country like Colombia.

"The milk comes from the supermarket." this answer to a simple question, "Where does the milk come from?", a colombian child was a wakeup call that helped understand my inner feelings.

As I finished college and asked the question that would define my duty, I found an answer unrelated to my fields of study. Understanding the most impactfull experiences in my life had been when I engaged in direct contact with nature guided me towards the need to create opportunities for children who, each day, were more separated from nature and the Earth.

Considering my studies did not provide the tools necessary, I started to seek experiences and knowledge that would support my capacity to engage in this endeavor. Not many, understood, and after several years only a few joined up into what came to be the Founding Group (Nicole Zangen, Catalina Saravia, Camilo Camargo and Luis Camargo) This small group of people shared the passion and the conviction to generate change for youth and the Earth.

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?

This newly devised master hierarchy of traditional virtues and values is formally based upon behavioral principles enabling crucial inroads into conflict and dispute resolution and mediation. This new ethical system ultimately qualifies as the long anticipated global system of planetary ethics serving a secular constituency, where mediation and arbitration typically provide the critical tools towards settlement of dispute issues within a civil environment. Indeed, this new ethical innovation potentially amounts to the best of all possible worlds: promoting conflict resolution within the secular world while simultaneously preserving the ethical traditions that have proven so effective over the course of past generations.

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

The inherent versatility of the human mind (by definition) allows for a subjective reflection on the objective perspectives of another, allowing crucial insights into affiliated feelings/motivations, an aspect traditionally known as empathy. This unique ability to attribute mental states to others is a key factor in what truly makes us human, an aspect that developmental psychologists refer to as Theory of Mind. This innate facility towards empathy depends primarily upon our ability to run cognitive simulations, whereby inferring the intentions and motivations of others by employing one’s own mind as a conceptual template for that of others. This necessarily entails placing oneself in the role of another and further observing how one’s mind resonates within such a mutually overlapping context.

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

This reflective style of role reversal, in turn, specifies the existence of an entire parallel complement of ethical terms suitable for de-signating this dual degree of versatility. Indeed, the English language is richly blessed with a broad number of synonyms conducive to outlining this parallel complement of accessory terms. A complete listing of accessory terms.For instance, for the personal realm, the proposed accessory class of ego states (poignancy-culpability-passion-apprehension) is effectively complemented by the main virtuous listings of nostalgia-guilt-desire-worry. Furthermore, the accessory alter ego states of adoration-censure-admiration-caring) similarly reciprocate the respective main listings of terms (hero/worship-blame-approval-concern). This reciprocal interplay of both the main and accessory themes collectively permits a convincing simulation of empathic language in general, whereby the objective/subjective polarities are reversed through an inversion of the interplay of “you” and “I” roles. This key dual-directed dynamic for affective language provides crucial inroads towards an empathic model of human cooperation on an international scale of influence, promising fresh new insights into maintaining global peace and harmony.

This proposal for a technological simulation of virtuous artificial intelligence is based upon the recently released synthesis uniting the fields of behavioral psychology and value ethics. Here the instinctual terminology of behavioral instrumental conditioning provides an elementary foundation for the subjective hierarchy of traditional groupings of virtues, values, and ideals. This formal tie-in with behavioral science effectively validates the subjective prerequisites of the virtuous realm, an innovation based upon a primary set of instinctual terms: namely, rewards-leniency-appetite-aversion. These instinctual terms, in turn, prove conceptually consistent with a higher linguistic hierarchy characterizing the virtuous realm.

Far from remaining a purely academic exercise, this all-inclusive system addresses many issues of crucial import to modern culture. For instance, the realms of criminality and hypercriminality are examined with considerable applications to political corruption and global international terrorism. It also examines the range of communicational factors underlying mental illness: as specified for the overall symptom spectrum described in the DSM-series. This comprehensive examination of such an intriguing set of categories offers timely insights into the numerous conflicts facing modern culture today, as well as considerable inroads into information technology: most notably, a patented simulation (#6,587,846) for ethical artificial intelligence providing ethical computer safeguards.

Em 2003, Mar´Junior escutou pela primeira vez o termo bullying e quando foi pesquisar, descobriu que tinha sofrido e que tinha praticado o mesmo. No livro autobiográfico "BULLYING - Eu sofri. Eu pratiquei. Eu hoje conscientizo.", o autor revela passagens da sua infancia e adolescencia, onde sofreu horrores no lar, na rua e na escola. E, em uma infeliz reviravolta, começou a praticar esta violência até descobrir que aos 23 anos, seria pai. O amor o fez entender que teria que parar e esse mesmo amor, em 2003, o fez entender que deveria conscientizar.

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

As the China transitions from a manufacturing labor-intensive economy into a knowledge-based creative economy, Chinese education needs to transition from a test-oriented system into one that develops the ability of students to think critically and to work collaboratively. But while there’s a growing consensus within China that schools need to start emphasizing empathy, there’s widespread disagreement on how to best do so, or if, given China’s cultural and political context, that’s even possible. Our goal is to show that emphasizing empathy in curriculum is indeed possible, and that doing so has positive education outcomes.

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

Our school takes a holistic experiential approach to teaching empathy, creating situations that forces students to develop their own individual identity while learning to appreciate the feelings and viewpoints of others. Our school policies are the foundation: We discourage standardized testing, competition, and results, and instead emphasize individuality, diversity, and process. Curriculum-wise, we emphasize reading, especially fiction (traditionally the best way to teach empathy to students). We also emphasize drama and journalism, which forces students to constantly switch perspectives. We also try to develop global citizenship by sending our students to unfamiliar countries, such as Botswana, where our students expand their cultural horizons, challenge their prejudices, and learn to appreciate helping others while tutoring disabled children (read our student’s blog here: http://blog.sina.com.cn/ourvoices2011). What accounts for the emotional intelligence of our school is th

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

We emphasize teaching Chinese students how read and write effectively in English.

In our reading class, we first teach students how to properly read an English text such as John Steinbeck’s The Winter of Our Discontent by understanding plot, characterization, and symbolism. Most Chinese students have never read an English book before, but our students persist and they eventually are able to read English books.

But reading the book is only the preamble to a much more difficult challenge: To work together in groups to deconstruct the text, formulate a thesis, support it with evidence and logic, and write a literary essay. Our students’ biggest problem is working in groups, and as a class we discuss group dynamic (understanding and effectively using each team member’s strengths) and effective communication skills (how to debate using evidence and logic, and how to offer advice and feedback that’s constructive and not personal).

We take as much time as necessary so that every group can turn in its best work. Also, we have the groups read and edit each other’s essays so that the entire class is working together. At the end of this process, our students learn to appreciate the value of teamwork. We also find that by taking our time and eliminating competition our students can be at their most creative.

As a public institution that prepares Chinese students for study in American colleges and universities, we have hundreds of peers and competitors in China. What makes us distinctive is our holistic and progressive education approach that emphasizes developing student’s individuality, creativity, and empathy. Our competition sees its mission statement as securing college placements for its students, and thus emphasizes test-taking skills for the SAT Reasoning Test, Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), and Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. Right now, our biggest challenge is how the market defines success (getting students into top American colleges); we feel that emphasizing short-term results contradicts our mission to educate Chinese students as global citizens and life.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We are constantly featured in the Chinese media, and have a website where each week we file a report on our progress. We understand that we are an education experiment, and that to help promote reform in Chinese schools we must be open, clear, and honest about our difficulties and our weaknesses. Our biggest impact is that we are demonstrating that education reform is indeed possible in China.

Our students have improved greatly as individuals as well: They are happier, more confident, more creative, more curious, and more motivated to learn. Our parents were at first skeptical, but now they are actively promoting our program in their social networks.

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

We would like to start a debate in China as to the meaning of education. Most Chinese think that education is about getting students into top colleges, but for us education is about teaching students to be global citizens and life-long learners. We want to challenge the traditional notions of education, parenting, and success in China.

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

Chinese cultural values are dominant and persistent, but we do hope to impact a minority of parents and students who believe in our progressive education. The best way to do that is to educate our students to the best of our ability, and to be honest and forthcoming about our mistakes so that our students and our parents are learning from the experiment as much as we are.

I’m a Chinese-Canadian, born in China, raised in Toronto, and educated at Yale College. I’ve always believed in the power of education to transform lives; My father washed dishes for a living, but through persistence and hard work in the Canadian public school system I won a scholarship to study at Yale. After graduation in 1999 I went to Beijing to teach in the public school system, but became disappointed in the rigidity and narrow-mindedness of China’s test-oriented education system.

In 2008, I visited a friend, Wang Zheng, who was principal of a high school in Shenzhen, China. Many of his students were now planning to leave the Chinese education system in order to study abroad, and I could see an opportunity to impact Chinese education positively. Wang Zheng and I saw a historical opportunity to build a progressive school that would put theory into practice, be the first school to show that education reform is truly possible, and inspire others to follow our example.

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

As youth routinely labeled "at-risk," our students don't see their power to be a changemaker. When society consistently proves that people of color, young and eldery people, and women have less opportunity to make a change and do something big, our students internalize this and see it as fact. The primary issue is that young people don't see themselves as an Agent of Change; instead they often see themselves as a pawn that does nothing but respond to authority. If this is what our youth learn from the beginning, how do we expect them to make a 180 once they are "old enough" to make a difference? They need to start acting now, grasp their power and opportunity, and explore their unique skill set to create positive social change as they see fit.

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

My students created the idea of starting an Agents of Change club at our school. I lead this club of 10-30 brilliant girls and help nurture their creative ways to solve problems. We talk about their strengths, their passions, and what the community needs, and then we combine all of these facets to create solutions. If one student is a really talented writer and is passionate about GLBT issues, how can she create social change? She decided to start a blog, research current issues, and get information out there. She also writes letters to legislators to formalize her opinions. Other students are passionate about ending sexual and domestic abuse and are great at organizing events. They created an informational website and then organized a bake sale and all-school Change for Change contest to raise money for a local women's shelter. Having a space to talk about social change and then ACT has been hugely influential for these students and their self-esteem and understanding of empathy.

Our club operates due to a lot of trust between members. In order to be successful, we need to understand what each student is passionate about and why. Relationship-building is key to our service-learning, especially as I am not able to think like a middle-schooler without knowing what they're going through. One example of success within our group was with a 7th grade student who struggles with aggression and relationships, in addition to basic math and literacy. She decided she wanted to help homeless children, and she decided the best way for her to do this was through planning a day of celebration and activities for all of the children at a local shelter. This student spent hours preparing activities, recruiting her friends to join, and even convinced her mother to purchase snacks for the children, while her family is well-below poverty level, as is. I had some doubt in her ability to lead 20 young people through her activities, as they weren't as well thought-through as I would have liked, and I have seen her repeated behavior issues at school. However, I was hugely surprised when she showed up at the shelter with her game-face on. She loved being a role model for the younger homeless children, and she did a fantastic job of considering their situations before making any comments (I was afraid belittling comments would slip!). I was in awe. This student has made a huge turn-around at school, being kinder to younger students especially and better at controlling her anger. It was great that our club could support her on this journey.

There are no competitors when we're all looking for social change... if everyone is working to the best of their ability, then that's all we can ask for! Our direct peers are any in our school community. They are asked to participate in some of the Agents of Change events. Other peers are community organizations that are kind enough to involve us in their operations, as it is difficult to open the doors up for middle-schoolers. We are looking to grow school-wide, as it would be fantastic for each student to know what community need concerns them and be able to visualize how they can make a difference.

Our club started in September of 2011, and we have raised over $1500 for community organizations and included over 60 youth in peer-led service-learning projects. Lots of youth empowerment!

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

It would be great to get more youth involved... the interest is out there! We have a fundraising goal of $4000 by the end of this school year, and we hope to get some all-school projects running, meaning we'd be engaging over 200 youth in social change work.

To empower empathy in school children grades 7-8 by revealing the dynamics of bullying behavior and encouraging the exploration of various strategies for bystanders to have a positive impact.

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

A first person role play simulation where the user plays the role of one of a group of friends in a school yard and classroom. The user learns that persuasive power is needed and that persuasive power can be earned through both positive and sometimes negative behavior. The consequences of both positive and negative behavior are revealed through the progress of the game. Also, logic puzzles and other activities where self confidence can be boosted through achievement form another way to boost ones persuasive power with peers. Users can experience being victimized as well as contributing by doing nothing in the victimization of another. Users clearly see their role and their responsibility in various scenarios and are encouraged to seek a solution that is win-win for all.

In part one on the girls side, the dilemma is that one of the friends is holding a sleepover party but says that her mother will only permit 4 of the 5 friends to sleep over.You can choose to compete with the other girls to go or you can volunteer not to go and do something else. If you compete you have to be honest or you will be caught out. If you choose to be nice and volunteer not to go, SURPRISE they think that is so nice of you that you become invited for sure. The girl that's left out then tries to convince you to do something with her and convince the other to go along with you so that the host of the sleepover is punished. If you don't feel empathy for all of the girls you will get caught up in a situation which will end badly. You have to use your empathy skills to find a win win solution which requires you to convince the other girls look for a better way.

There are many films and books and persuasive public speakers "Finding Kind" who are doing very good work in this area. What distinguishes this project is that it is a role-playing game that puts the user in the decision making seat and in a safe virtual environment lets the user experiment with various strategies and experience the consequences of those strategies. The game is not prescriptive nor does it ignore a non-politically correct strategy. You can be mean and you can be kind and sometimes you have to be tough.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have piloted the game in a classroom setting where the children voted as a group on the best strategy. They became very engaged and the game inspired some frank and revealing conversations. They were able to share their own experiences with each other and support each other. They were able to talk about their feelings in certain situations and explain why they would act in a certain way and then discuss openly about the consequences of their actions as well as exploring different ways of handling a confusing situation.

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

Our goal over the next few years is to have the game played in schools. By revealing the dynamics of their conflicts we hope that they will become more conscious and act more thoughtfully when confronted by a stressful relationship problem. We believe that the children have the capacity to figure out the problems themselves if we present them in a way that allows them to see the bigger picture.

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

The biggest barrier is probably cost. We are looking to create partnerships with foundations and corporate sponsors to make the game available to anyone who is interested.

When my 13 year old daughter came home with a problem about her friends and an upcoming sleep-over party our resulting conversation revealed that the problem was a system that was hidden from the players. It became apparent that they were playing a game where the mechanics, the rules and even the real objectives were unknown to them. If we could create a simulation that mirrored the game and explained the rules and started a dialogue about the real objectives of the game, essentially, how do we all win, a solution to the problem would become evident.

The youth in Kuresoi have been used to perpetuate undemocratic leadership in the name of people fighting for their community. After elections which are the major triggers of violence, the youth do not benefit from either the looser or winner and are always the ultimate looser. Political mobilization is along ethnic differences.

It is possible to educate the youth on issues that bring them together other than focus on negative ethnicity which has been used by politicians to manipulate the youth especially in times of national parliamentary and Presidential elections.

I intend to use Sports and training on internet applications to mobilize the youth. Electricity has recently reached the villages of my target area. Most of the activities that require the use of applications that are powered by electricity are new to this area and the youth seem excited to engage in different activities. Workshops on how to take advantage of this will be used to allow for setting stage for meeting part of which will be used to spread peace building strategies. The schools are a good neutral place for the various groups with different cultures to meet, it signifies learning. The school students are also more receptive to new information and will be used as change agents.

Having taken part in humanitarian activities following the post election violence in Kenya in 2008. We identified gaps in the Humanitarian assistance by the various organisations. We had an underlying theory of change that Children who were affected by this violence either directly or say what was happening were most likely to perpetuate similar crimes in future. We therefore decided to start an organisation where we could be able to influence change. Existing organisations had their own focus which we could not easily influence or change. Some of the interventions we did not agree with.

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

Attempting to stop bullying behaviors in a high school setting. The program goal is to develop student-focused and student-lead bullying prevention and awareness.

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

Goal: reduce and prevent bullying behavior among students and to improve peer relations. In order to achieve the goal at the high school level, we have implemented student focus groups which allowed students to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences about bullying in a small group setting. By allowing students to have a voice and listen to others experiences has cultivated empathy. Taking time to validate students’ feelings and opinions enables student-to-student relationships to grow. Students have a chance to look inside a person rather than simply viewing an individual’s exterior. Students begin to realize what motivates others and how individuals' life experiences shape who they are and how they behave. Barriers are broken down, empathy grows, and interpersonal relationships improve. In order for bullying prevention to be effective at the secondary level, it must be student driven. Students must be the change in which they want to see.

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

Student focus groups are arranged using a diverse group of students (10-12 students and 1-2 adult facilitators). Facilitators pose questions to the group and allow them to share their input. Types of questions include: what does bullying look like? where do you see bullying? why do you think some people bully or are bullied? when you observe bullying, how does it make you feel? what can you do to reduce bullying? what should adults do to reduce bullying? do you think bullying is a rite of passage? do you think the media exaggerates bullying problems? how is social media affecting peer relationships? In addition to student focus groups, a district-wide focus group was held. 25 students (grades 3-12) and 25 adults (administrators, teachers, board members) participated in a Bullying Prevention Summit. The morning was devoted to students sharing thoughts, feelings, and experiences of bullying. The afternoon was devoted to problem solving at 3 levels: student, staff, administration. As a result of the summit, a group of 40 high school students were selected to participate in Leadership Training. A full-day training focused on key elements of bullying, empathy building, peer mentors, and legal issues related to bullying. The goal: to have students serve as ambassadors to the program and make a difference in bullying prevention by refusing to be a part of the problem, support targets of bullying, intervene directly, and report incidence to adults. The school needs student leaders who recognize that if they take a stand against bullying and violence, others might follow.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Student-lead focus groups have been conducted, in which previously trained students served as facilitators. Major club members, such as Student Council, Key Club, and Criminal Justice Club, have participated in student-lead focus group sessions. Students have made a video encouraging individuals to Stand Up Against Bullying. Students have presented program progress to the school board. Unlikely friendships have developed among students that have participated in sessions together due to the deeper understanding they have for one another. Teachers have observed students intervening directly with or supporting a target of bullying. Although the impact has been minimal, it has been felt and students are excited about further activities to increase awareness for positive peer relationships and bullying prevention.

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

Plans to continue focus group sessions. We also plan to conduct a Step Forward Activity, which is used to promote empathy and tolerance by raising awareness of difference and similarities. The long term goal is to increase community and national awareness. A group of students will visit neighboring school districts during the Spring and Fall 2012. The project plans to hold Skype focus group sessions with a minimal of 6 schools in 6 different states. Plans also include a Skype session with a school in another country. Students from each school will discuss their thoughts, feelings, and experiences regarding bullying and compare school cultures. The hope is that students will recognize differences and similarities among their same age peers and further grow empathy.

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

One potential barrier for the success of the project is student commitment. The project is primarily student focused, therefore the student must take the lead. In order for students to feel as though their efforts are making a difference they must see the difference. The school plans to recognize efforts of students through The PRIDE Program. PRIDE is a program that has been in place for several years that recognizes and rewards positive social behavior. The project also feels strongly that student suggestions be taken seriously and feedback is provide to students regarding their ideas. Putting their ideas into action expresses adult commitment to the project, therefore increasing the likelihood of student dedication.

At the 1st focus group session, a student shared his story of why he was a bully. He explained his home life and how bullying behavior was learned and accepted by his family. He shared that aggressive behavior was the way his family dealt with problems. He also shared that he did not have "power" in his family, so he came to school and bullied to feel powerful. The student ended up in a behavioral treatment facility where he learned different ways of handling his problems. He also realized that his bullying hurt others. The group was deeply moved by his story. At the second session, the group discussed the impact of the student's story and shared their change in thinking. They never considered the "back story" of the bully. They realized maybe the bully is suffering too. This example emphasizes how discussion can build empathy, as well as a deeper understanding of others’ behavior. This is just one example of many in which students' gained perspective.

Over the past 7 years the district has been committed to the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. During that time, we have observed improvements in interpersonal relationships. However without further funding to support bullying prevention, empathy building, and school and community awareness, the team will not be able to further advance the social programs that are in place.

Violence and lack of empathy is a serious problem in Lebanese schools. Children are learning to be violent, sectarian, racist...at an early age. Melkart school is a private school, with 950 students, Christian and Muslim. Teachers and board members are overwhelmed with the new face of violence and intimidation among kids. Physical violence, verbal violence, lack of respect...all are barriers to a better daily atmosphere. Empathy is an estranged word and attitude. After all the atrocities that our country went through, it's more the "survival" law, the individualistic way of living. Parents are unintentionally giving their fear of "the other" and the "self defense" spirit to their kids. And the price is very costly paid in schools and society. Non Violence is a totally new concept for them.

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

With the introduction of NVC (Non Violent Communication) and Conflict resolution,I am initiating a new way of thinking, talking, acting and reacting among those kids aged 5 to 13 years, boys and girls, Christian and Muslim. They are discovering that we can talk "Giraffe", meaning: with our hearts, talking about our "needs" and "feelings", thinking before acting, and looking for the others needs and feelings for a better communication. The school accepted 3 years ago a sample test. I went into classes and started games and exercises, discussions and coaching, role playing. What started as a test, ended with a weekly hour per class (KG2-7th grade). Kids discovered non violence, empathy, new communication skills, they discovered that we see "our" truth, and we see the world from our point of view.
The school declared itself a nonviolent school last year.

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

One game was about the impact of words. "Words are like windows, or walls". I gave them small papers, and asked them to write sincerely the word or the sentence that hurt them most, and made them cry. In one class, the harsh words were sectarian ones. "You are a dirty Muslim", "We hate you Christians"... It was a deep wound in this class. So I asked the Muslims in the class to prepare an éxposé, for next week, where they use all creative ways to tell us about Islam as they see it, as they live it. They spent the week excited, and came with drawings, and a beautiful story where they explained Islam to their classmates. Everybody was silent and listening. The week after it was the turn of Christians to tell Christianity to their friends. At the end of the session, I asked :"what did you discover?". And I was amazed by the similarities they discovered in both religions. They mentioned the bottom line of faith: Be good, be loving, be kind... The week after, we wrote the nicest words ever said to them, and they discovered how we all need to be appreciated. The rest of the year went with minor sectarian atmosphere. And this class is until today an empathic one on religious side.
The same exercise did a tremendous effect in another class on the "bad words" and "big words", students and parents alike found it very effective.

I am happy to say that what I'm doing is very challenging since it's new and separate from school programs. Some schools have started similar topics through "year projects" they try to make with students, some teachers try to give extras during "civic education" courses, but none here have the tools I got from my major, and managed to establish NVC and Empathy as a separate training during class hours. Now many other schools are asking to have similar trainings for teachers and students alike, but I'm just one person.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

To date, I managed to make the word "nonviolence" a common term in disputes between youngsters and grown ups. I managed to create a new cultural window, the word Empathy is starting to become known and applied. I am overwhelmed with requests from several schools, educators, parents, activists who want to learn the "Giraffe" talk. NVC is smoothly taking its place. Students always want more, they are confident and they appreciate the fact that while playing or exercising we are using our lateral thinking to become more aware of our humanity. Even when we approach tough subjects as the capital punishment in Lebanon. All subjects are welcome when we know how to speak from our hearts. Conflicts are seen from a new perspective. Even if living peacefully needs a lot more to become a way of living in this part of the world. And with my media background, I managed to introduce the topic on local TVs, which brought more people to ask for more information.

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

My project is to establish this pilot project, to bring it everywhere in Lebanon and the MENA region. I have the exercises, I wrote stories, translated international books and booklets. I am in contact with other professionals, locals and internationals who are willing to take part of this project after they saw what happened in my school. I can carry these kits, exercises and knowledge all around and train educators to introduce NVC and nonviolence to their schools. I have many local schools who are willing to give it a try. Already started visiting and training.

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

The biggest barrier is financial. Since I've been volunteering for 3 years now, I can barely find time to offer my time. My income from my other work is very important for my family, so little is left for my dream. I am giving time and expertise but I can't print, edit, film and be everywhere. I am planning of proving the pilot project, create an organization and promote it in order to get funds. Funds is all we need.

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]

I was born in a torn country, my mom is Muslim, my dad Christian. During war, we had to hide from both sides at many occasions. I studied journalism and worked on the ground to be the voice of the voiceless people... But still, it wasn't enough. I felt helpless. Few years ago, I had the chance to be part of a pilot university in the Arab world: AUNOHR (Academic University for Nonviolence and Human Rights), I studied for my master in Nonviolent Education and Conflict Resolution. My teachers were an international panel of professionals. When I became well trained, and educated in the field, I felt I need to start being the change I want to see in the world.With my communications background I shifted naturally to NVC. And after giving many workshops, I realized how much we lack proper communication, active listening. I saw my kids school, the new kind of violence that is everywhere, like in the rest of the world. So I took my heart and managed get the school board get involved.

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

Several local organizations have partnered with Project Introspection: A Case Against Bullying, to provide job-training, life-skills training and "green" jobs for those seeking work-especially for young people and those returning to society following incarceration. It will result in multiple benefits to the State of Maine-including reducing unemployment and recidivism; providing job training consist with the goals of Efficiency Maine; and providing hope to rural residents that have seen their jobs disappear.

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

To design an augmented reality-based mobile app that offers the best practices of Timebanks USA (Youth Court, National Homecomer's Academy, Resilience Circles), Natural Capitalism Solutions, Maine Energy Education Program. Noting, lifetime acheivements of Milton Bradley, as a local hero, youth entreprenuer, educator and business leader. Milton's use of Infancy, Disgrace, Jail and Prison as the first possible experiences of his boardgame, supports rich curriculum and re-brands bullying as a catalyst to positive change. This helps to gain leverage about what children know and do with technology, to learn new things, to express themselves in creative ways, to communicate in better ways, to take care of themselves and each other, and to contribute in positive ways to the self and the world. DreamWalk Interactives hosted a treasure hunt in N. Mexico engaging 30,000 players. Built by kids for kids, this will give a voice to the healing work required, making work fun.

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

Greater Schools Partnership (George Mitchell Institute/USM) have a strong background in using handheld devices to gain insights into classroom learning,known as: iWalkthrough. Predetermined activities of NVC, can be gauged individually to increase team points, peer to peer vocational skill building can "double" points gained and extra credit for team activities in the community that decrease consumerism, and increase conservation. Initial team orientation would naturally include Milton Bradley's benchmark (square) of Infancy. Introductions of who that "Baby" is, gives ample consideration to team player selection. Each team has 12 players, and includes a youth court council member to debate "constitutionality" of fair play. This role, has a positive "conspiratorial" influence and randomly can select a mystery guest to challenge teams to a greater skill level. Each team must allocate time used within a timebank format to drive the creativity and sustainability of gameplay, for the treasure hunt will produce the "glue and clue" of the hands on kit. Businesses who sponsor this event will be able to mentor teams with badges, as DreamWalk Interactive has done with mobile app gaming. Progressing through each square of LIFE, 12 teams use relection and inquiry to develop the final competition entry and co-create networks for personal and professional sustainability. The use of a mobile app to bring to LIFE, as an understanding of what has changed since 1860 (when this game was originally created) is a strong suit for the information it reveals and the trust it can build.

There is currently no mobile app that can bridge the chasm of business incubation, "kidprenuers", relational and green skill development. This treasure hunt includes a hands on educational kit, that enhances mobile app play with NVC facilitators to catalyze the competition and ensure a well rounded, healthy and engaged citizenry, utilizing the historical insights of educator and game mogul, Milton Bradley. Reflective practices are gained with building a hands on kit, later to be critiqued for craftsmanship, creativity and re-purposed material from community participants, and submitted for a fundraising auction. As the ability to understand and use NVC skills, the more consensus is built upon, to increase productivity and team points. This is needful for intergenerational and business play.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

I have been cultivating strong community networks locally, and nationally to derive the best practices delivering the most promising results in a manner of co-productivity with a healthy, family oriented competition. I have discovered it enables business leaders to think out side of the box, turning an eye to open innovation, and to challenge apathy.

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

If limited to regional play throughout the New England, Project Introspection has the ability to reach over 30,000 participants within weeks of launching.If used correctly,the analytics has the potential to reduce costs associated with restorative justice and recidivism, carbon credits through sustainability projects,and economic gain through timebanking entreprenuerial youth. Factor Four, refers to a hypothetical increase in resource productivity, brought about by simultaneously doubling the wealth and halving resource consumption. Active conservation of resources, and repairing exploitative relations of bullying with the ubiquitous use of handheld devices could dramtically increase effectiveness. The efficiency of systems will be dependent on who plays and how well.

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

The potential barrier of coordinating Community Weaver software (Timebanks USA) with Entertainment Arts/Hasbro to maximize outreach through local chapters of timebanks. If this poses an obstacle, then an alternative maybe found in the design of the programming of the mobile app, for the administrative platform to be independent and not interconnected. Pre-launch trial games could identify the integrity of game play.

My need to combine the natural symmetry of Resilience Circles,NVC, with a hands on educational kit that included woodworking, stainglass, solar and basic electricity, seemed to host the wellspring of competition like X prize,or the Pepsi Refresh Challenge.The students who created bcydez Solar, created a video for funding their dreams. After the "fallout" of bullying between the students, the need to see families and teachers resolve their differences, lead me to see how instrumental the Homecomer's were to that process. The excitement of playing a mobile app based on a local hero, added value to the treasure hunt's appeal and the game's strategy and co-productive principals. The ability for the Homecomer's to teach youth at risk, is underscored with their acquired skills of NVC and woodworking. In a game, each person has options in moving beyond the challenges of bullying, that is personal and transformative. Team play offers diversity, and safety in numbers- who desist bullying.

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

I developed this concept after years of working at the Kenyan national hospital and i related many patients diseases/disorders to poor lifestyles albeit many would come when its too late when the problem was at the critical stages.I therefore decided to co-found the NGO to initiate community nutrition and health education sessions among the most vulnerable communities who had no access to health care and information.We kicked off with healthy sessions in churches and schools and gradually to the slums of Nairobi.So far we have been conducting these nutrition and health sessions to pregnant and lactating women and those household with children under 5 years of age and we have seen a lot of positive impact especially in the improvement in breastfeeding rates,uptake of good hygiene and sanitation practices and improved dietary diversification hence reduced infections/diseases.

Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.

the goal is to reduce maternal and child related morbidity and mortality that is highly associated with poor nutrition and health practices and improve nutrition and health awareness,skills and knowledge among the targeted communities.It is expected that with the uptake of these knowledge the communities will be able to achieve good nutritional status that will promote their general health and well being hence reducing the burden of disease and its related costs.The overall household economy will improve as communities spent their meager resources on other developmental related issues rather than healthcare and be able to take their children to school and offer other essential components of life and ultimately be able to save some money for the future.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

:Increased breastfeeding rates hence reduced childen related morbidity/mortality
:Improved nutritional status among women and children
:increased community awareness of nutrition and health
:improved hygiene and sanitary practices hence reduced diarrhea related infections
Below is the Quantitative summary:

NWB provides nutrition care and support by developing menus and training staff on therapeutic food preparation and infant and young feeding practices and management of malnutrition within the HIV/AIDS context. (Ongoing since March, 2009). To date over 3800 children reached and 1200 staffs trained.
•Promoting good maternal practices and exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months and discouraging early weaning among pregnant women attending ANC care at Marura, City Council’s –Mareba Health center and Uzima Hospitals/Clinic (On-Going) Over 5700 mothers reached since programme inception in September,2009.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?

The projected impact is to double or triple the number of both direct and indirect beneficiaries if resources allow.Given the current progress the following are the estimated projections:
Number of exclusively breastfed children increase by 150%.
Number of women willing to exclusively breasfeed for 6 months increase by 100%
Number of community nutrition and health education beneficiaries (both direct and indirect) increase by 200%
Number of radio and television stations broadcasting key health and nutrition related messages and information increase by 50%
Number of malnourished children under 5 years reduce by 5%
Number of malnourished pregnant and lactating women reduce by 10%
Increased number of community and political leaders participating in health and nutrition sessions.

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?

Students in elementary school nurturing empathy towards their fellow students who are going through poverty, divorce of their parents, death in the family, material need, need for help in school. In this environment, children are not encouraged to step up and meet closely their fellow students, on the contrary: their parents most often want their kids to "stay away" from every situation or contact with another of their peers that is in more vulnerable situation (especially Roma, poor children od children with disabilities) because that would bring the parent themselves some more responsibility to spend more time with their kids and explain to them why some people are worse off. Also, vulnerable kids desire to be called by their name,get personal invitation to events,get specific role.

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

Inspire both parents and pupils not to fortify the boundaries around their comfort zone (which most of the times is not comfortable at all) but be willing to engage more with their children, teach them that empathy and offering sincere friendship with other pupils no matter what that pupil or his/her family is going through. Volunteers from "Refleksija"(under/graduates) will together with the schools and professors work one month on locating the needs and the kids that are more vulnerable and create "special compounds" within the classes of different interests: sport, art, choir, crafts, social work. Volunteer from Refleksija will observe the kids in class and negotiate with them and the professors their small teams and ideas.In the same time, Refleksija and the professors will organize meetings with the parents to discuss the importance of encouraging the kids to get devote time in this activities.Finally,all will work on specific "small projects", exhibitions etc.

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

We will include 2 elementary schools from Strumica (the city) and 3 schools from different villages around (there are 72 villages around Strumica). These villages are from different parts of the Strumica area, so they will serve as a good comparative case for developing the project furthermore, after having a certain experience (because all these villages even though similar, have different primary agricultural focus, landscape, etc). These villages are: Monospitovo, Vasilevo, Veljusa (where also Roma kids are going). It is important to include Veljusa since Roma kids rarely integrate with others.
1. Volunteers from Refleksija and professors work together for a month to form the ideas, locate the needs, and some of the pupils that are in more vulnerable position
2. Negotiate with the parents on the importance of encouraging the kids to participate in the projects, contact their fellow students, possibly invite them to their place (for lunch, working on the project)
3. In class attendance of "Refleksija" volunteers helping with the forming of small teams.
4. Refleksija volunteer monitor, participates and evaluates the process constantly while working with the professor and the kids on a weekly basis (2 hours per week + hours outside school need for preparing materials for the common small projects)
5. Refleksija volunteer- an available contact for the kids and the parents to hel them with logistics for their small projects
6. Finalization of the small projects and presentation of those in other schools (kids themselves present them)
7. Awards,certificates (for all).

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 competitors might me the schools themselves because they are not always most open for innovative ideas since it takes some more responsibly. However, if the directors of the schools are presented clearly with the idea, and realize that their effort is partial and that most of their tasks will be mediation:furthermore, that the success of these activities, may inspire them to take the chance and involve in such a meaningful action. Not to mention that the ideal itself, EMPATHY is not very present in our society (it is mostly present within the family, since it is a society where shame of the others know what is going on to you is not appropriate). But through inclusive activities,the scope of empathy will broaden. The municipal governments will need to approve this work (not a problem).

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In the Macedonian environment group work among children in schools a lot of times is conducted without giving a lot of thought how this could not only bring about the final result of the group work of the children, but how it actually forms the opinions and the behavior of the young people at a very early stage. In a society where empathy (if present) is within the families, because it is still a society where shame plays a crucial role; this leads to disintegration of the kids at a very early stage and leading them to think that social engagement and responsibility does not play an important role. The mantra that one should mind their own business and not get in trouble with someone else's problems has long term consequences of having disengaged youth and students.Group work is a very fertile soil for engaging young pupils in meaningful communication,therefore we as students would love to engage with it and facilitate where windows of opportunities are wide open,but not used so far.

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

One year for implementation of the project in the chosen schools. Further presentation of the pupils themselves in other schools will hopefully inspire other kids, but more over other schools and professors to further cooperate with Refleksija and engage with similar activities. The pupils (from 2nd to 4th grade) in 2 or 3 years after finishing the project will still have the contacts with Refleksija that will help them further with their ideas that they would like to organize or implement. We also hope that the small projects with thematic focus on social work will build some volunteer initiatives on a regular basis. Finally, in the background we have empathy reinforced primarily in the sense that social vulnerability is not an obstacle for meaningful friendships.

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

The barriers are the will of the parents and professors to engage with something that will definitely take some of their energy and focus,or parents of vulnerable children who usually do not want to engage in change(because of shame or lesser self-esteem perception). But since it will be facilitated through schools,these obstacles may be surpassed because of the structural approach to the subject matter and the involvement of students that have profound experience in team building,experience sharing and coping up with negotiating ideas and convincing others that it is worthy to try.Moreover, in in the background we have the support from the local-governments by offering us opportunities to promote the "small projects",all will be much more willing to get involved.

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]

Growing up as a child that changes many places of living, with pretty low income family but full of imagination and dreams, I always needed someone to ask me about my ideas, to call me, to ask me what do you think, what shall we do? I felt greatest happiness when in 4th grade besides my status, there was a girl in my first day of school out of nowhere simply understood my discomfort with being new and being quite poor, and she became my friend just by asking me to walk around the court of my new school. She is my friend ever since. The mere fact that she would call me,ask me to go out with the friends she's been hanging out much longer had great impact on me feeling more confident to share my ideas because I realized:My ideas,childish desires and imaginations should not stop just because I do not speak perfectly the dialect of my fellow students,because only my mom has a scarce salary or i had no new clothes.I could have my ideas shared besides that..many many kids need this nowadays

Selecione o estágio que melhor se aplica à solução

Inicial (um piloto que começou recentemente)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

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

It is so sad that so many young individual has never leave their country for once to learn about other cultures and value. When I was 25, I took a trip to Holland that changed my life forever. I met people who lived in a state of material wealth but in a state of spiritual suffering. And I really saw myself, living with material suffering but had spiritual joy. The contrast was so stark.

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

My solution is to introduce the Global Empathy Trip (GET).
Global Empathy Trip are intended to tighten that grasp by challenging preconceptions, raising awareness and giving room to process feelings, ideas and experiences in a healthy way. My hope is that once we have a better understanding of ourselves and our world, then we can begin to act more intentionally in the world; we become less reactionary and more purposeful. Global Empathy Trip focus on service and social entrepreneurship that encourages students to be purposeful in the pursuit of their passions, in supporting the marginalized, building healthy relationships and finding solutions to the difficult challenges our world faces today.

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

The primary activity is going to be in partnership with a fantastic selected group abroad like Ashoka . Who are social innovators and have great vision for what can really lift the marginalized. My activities with them will be two-fold. First, to offer my hands and serve their mission and the people of Ashoka however I can with the engaged students. Secondly, to come alongside them and learn from these incredible changemakers through conversation and interaction over time. Unfortunately, it is rare to find people of true passion who are giving in service to society. It will be a precious opportunity to be with people like co-founders Jose Carlos and Aurelia and their team. If nothing else, I want the students to have a chance to catch the spirit of this passion and understand that it’s possible to live life in pursuit of a passion and not just in pursuit of comfort and security.

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 Global Empathy Trip is still an evolving opportunity and as far as I know there are only few initiatives in the world actively marketing the model. Some of these initiatives are focused on engaging volunteers with professional skills to benefit worthy causes. Students on the whole don’t have the requisite professional skills to benefit their business model. On the other hand, Global Empathy Trip is about life-learning. While students will be involved in local learnings and speaking local languages, the point of the course is not to develop these technical skills. My real hope is that the course will effect each participant’s worldview and attitude and that this will permeate all aspects of their lives.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Whilst the initiative is at the pilot stage, I have been encouraged by the interest shown from various educational establishment Nigeria, for example (1) Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, who wanted to use my project as part of an effort to support education in primary schools in Nigeria (2) Mercyland Elementary, in Ogun State, Nigeria who promotes some of the action featured on GET to promote tourism among their students.

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

My ultimate goal is to make as many educational establishments as possible to be aware of how International travel can be used as a valuable tool or resource to convey empathy for the multitude of worthy causes around the world. In the end, I hope that students will also want to be change makers. We’ll have had an experience of being with people who took a hard look at their society and decided that they wanted to live out Gandhi’s message of ‘be the change you want to see in the world.’ One best possible application? A student goes home, takes a look at a relationship/community/world and asks, “What needs to change?” Then they take a look at their own life, see what they can do about it and go for it.

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

The major barrier is that of funding, partnership and support around the globe. At the moment, the initiative is truly in a start up phase and need exposure to teenagers, families, teachers and administrators who believe in the importance of international experiences and social entrepreneurship for high school students. Legitimately, (I want to say this to all reading right now that) if this idea excites you at all — contact me! Let’s work together. If there is anything I’m learning about life these days, it’s the importance of meeting up with people that share my passion and seeing where it goes. This project is so new that your idea may very well be the most important one that I hear all year. Let’s make it happen together!

Global Empathy Trip (GET) is the work of my heart. When I was 25, I took a trip to Holland as I was one of the eight finalists for the Phillips Livable Cities Award that changed my life forever. I met people who lived in a state of material wealth but in a state of spiritual suffering. And I really saw myself, living with material suffering but had spiritual joy. The contrast was so stark. I had never been so far out of my own context before (growing up in South-west Nigeria) that I had never had any perspective on life, the word, my own thoughts/feelings/actions. That singular experience gave birth to this idea.

Qual(is) item(ns) abaixo descreve(m) melhor a(s) barreira(s) que sua inovação soluciona? Escolha até dois itens.

Custo, Transparência.

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

Taita-Taveta county is situated in South Eastern part of Kenya and comprises of four constituencies; Mwatate, Taveta, Voi and Wundanyi. It has a youth population of 84, 197 a majority of which are school drop-outs due alcohol and drug abuse, lack of school fees, early pregnancies, and early forced marriages. 50% of the youth are idle and lack basic job skills and some turn to crime and gang groupings as a pass time. Majority of the people are small scale farmers but most households live on less than a dollar a day. Most families live from hand to mouth as parents focus to put food on the table. Thus the youth are thus left to fend for themselves and become vulnerable to agents such as child abuse, drugs and early pregnancies. We hope to reverse this trend of idle youth in the area.

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

For every challenge there is a solution thus our project is timely and will address problems already identified in Taita-Taveta County. We hope to conduct life skills training in the county thus identify at risk youth and sexually abused school going children. We will then provide counselling to those affected and provide preventive measures to curb the vice through training and creating awareness. The project will first create awareness of its existence in order to enable those already facing the challenges mentioned know that they can get help. The trained youth will form groups or clubs to enable them network and share their experiences and discuss possible unique solutions. Meetings with community elders, teachers, Ministry of Health officials,District Education Officer will be held and pamphlets and media announcement made to sensitise the community of the services available. The project will assist those who want to continue with their education do so in cash or kind.

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

Our solution will make a difference due to the fact that this community has an over dependence on government aid for many years thus not making meaningful effort to find solutions from amongst themselves. We intend to reverse this trend by working with the youth thus create a new breed of proactive thinkers by encouraging them to be try find solutions to their problems. The youth will be equipped with life skills that will prepare them for independent thinking thus equipping them for both white and blue collar jobs. At risk youth will receive continuous counselling. Youth clubs or groups formed will enable networking and exchange of ideas and experiences as well as identification of leaders and mentors. The youth can then be trained in leadership skills, business management and project management and encouraged to produce proposals for funding. Sound proposals will be funded as micro-finance institutions will be brought in to educate youth on account opening, savings and deposits. We currently work under volunteered premises but hope to rent our own premises soon. We will have a project office in Voi but hope to purchase land in Mwatate and construct our own premises with offices to let. Other income generating activities tl sustain the project include having a membership fee for the clubs and groups, charging a fee for the training and a percentage contribution from staff salaries to the project kitty. Some of the trained youth will be employed by the organisation including the illiterate youth who will also be encouraged to enrol in adult literacy classes.

Some of our peers and competitors include youth organisations such as Yes Youth Can, World Vision, Youth Endowment fund among others. The challenges they pose to our success is the fact that most of them are well established and have been operating for many years in the area and are better financially endowed. What differentiates us from them is the fact that we are strategic in our approach as we want to deal with the core of the problem, that is the individual and his personal development, while they have been dealing with the immediate problem such as providing humanitarian aid or funding the youth projects. Majority concentrate on improving the education standards in the area and do not offer life skills training and counselling neither cater for illiterate youth employability.

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

It was while visiting a friend in Langata area in 2002; I had to go to a saloon whose owner I had been referred to. The owner was a young mother who lived in the slum (kwa micho) near Onyonka Estate, Langata. While conversing with the owner we suddenly heard a commotion in the nearby iron sheet built structure and women voices condemning harshly against something. My friend went to see what the commotion was all about and returned to inform us that a child had just been raped and that they were rushing her to a nearby clinic for treatment. The owner went on to tell us that this was a common trend in the slum areas as some parents leave their children un-attended to go look for income. Something just welled-up from within me and I wondered what sort of mental attitude the culprit was in to do such a heinous crime against such an innocent child. From that time on, I have always remembered to pray for the protection of sexually abused children around the world.

Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.

The goal of our initiative is to empower and nurture young people to enable them attain economic and social well-being. We seek to empower the individual by developing the internal self first because we believe change comes from within first before it can be reflected on the outside. We therefore nurture the youth through personal development and enabling and equipping them seek solutions to problems from within thus trying to eliminate over dependence on government aid for community challenges and build a generation of proactive rather than reactive thinkers. This will bring both economical and social growth and a sense of well-being.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Our solution will make a difference due to the fact that this community has an over dependence on government aid for many years thus not making meaningful effort to find solutions from amongst themselves. We intend to reverse this trend by working with the youth thus create a new breed of proactive thinkers by encouraging them to be try find solutions to their problems.

The youth can then be trained in leadership skills, business management and project management and encouraged to produce proposals for funding. Sound proposals will be funded as micro-finance institutions will be brought in to educate youth on account opening and savings.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?

We hope that over the next five years, we will have made impact on 120,000 youth in Taita-Taveta County. These are the young people that we will have trained in life skills, received counselling, trained in leadership, entrepreaunship, business management and project management. We believe there will be a change in attitude and behaviour of the youth and the community at large and the moral standards in the area will be high. This will instil self- confidence and respect for each other as well as teamwork in finding solutions to problems within the community. The youth will have self-discipline which will be reflected in the economic development of the whole county as they become responsible adults.

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

Some of the barriers we anticipate include; resistant from the youth themselves especially those of who are involved in crime, lack of interest from youth volunteers especially in the initial stages of the project, inadequate influence from the local government, lack of funds for the project, resistance from within the community especially parents whose children are culprits or suspects to crime as well as the illicit brewers. We hope to overcome them by; using influential peer groups such as popular gospel music artist and other talented role models to talk against drug abuse, hold funds drive to raise funds and involve Taita-Taveta communities living in the urban centres for funding, sensitise the community, parents and teachers on the importance of the project.

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

Our society spends a lot of time telling our young people that they aren't old enough to make a difference when in reality what we should be saying is "What do you want to do and how can I help you accomplish that?" We've found that youth have great ideas and want to get involved, they just need the support to do that. Further more, youth are more active and engaged when they feel some connection to their peers around the world. We want young people to be able to connect to their peers around the globe to celebrate their similarities and differences in a way that will make lasting social change.

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

We accomplish our goal through a variety of programs including interactive presentations that use games and songs to help kids feel connected to students around the world, student led initiatives, school supply drives, and a service learning exchange program called SEE Your World. We believe if young people can start to feel empathy rather than sympathy, real change can happen.

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

Picture this : The co-founders of Simply Equal Education are doing a presentation in a elementary school classroom about what it would be like to grow up and go to school in Equatorial Guinea (EG), West Africa. The students have been learning dances that the students in EG taught us, and have been learning to connect things in their lives to what we are telling them about the students in EG. By the end of the presentation, invariably we have a student say "Lets do something about this!" So we help the students design and run a project that will help make a difference. It is important that the students don't fall into a deficiency lens of "they are lacking" so we focus on whats cool about both places and the areas where both places can learn from each other.
We also run a program called SEE Your World which is a service learning exchange program helping teens from two countries form friendships and work together to finish a service learning project in both communities, making sure that they are providing a helping hand not a hand out in both areas.

There are very few organizations that work mainly to help young people understand their role as active agents of social change. DO Something is one of the few other organizations. We learned early on that the best way to succeed is to work with other organizations that are doing similar things because what is important is the work getting done, not who gets all the credit for it. We are the only organization that is running a program that combines service learning and exchange, and we designed the entire program.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

So far we have run more than 40 presentations for schools and other groups. Many of these groups have run school supply drives which has allowed us to send just over one ton of school supplies to schools in Equatorial Guinea where most students have never had the opportunity to hold a pencil or see colored paper. Currently, more than 3700 youth have been effected by our programs in some capacity.

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

We will be increasing the number of schools we work with both in the United States and in Equatorial Guinea, this will mean that more students have the opportunity to learn about and celebrate their peers living across the globe, and more students will have access to the supplies necessary to complete a basic education. Furthermore, we will have run several SEE Your World programs which will build friendships and connect youth. Empathy and understanding can't be taught with a textbook, they have to be felt.

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

The economy has changed the way non-profits are functioning as far as donors, which may change our goal of being able to pay ourselves a salary but won't change the success of the program. One issue that may arise in the next ten years is that when oil runs out in Equatorial Guinea we will no longer have a shipping partner to get our supplies into the country. We are working to build strong relationships with many different partners so that we are not totally reliant on one company or organization.

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]

While working in a school in Equatorial Guinea we had an eight year old student say to us "You're white, white people never stay in Malabo long, you're just going to leave and it won't have made any difference" and that was his reality, but we wanted to do something that would have some impact. We weren't sure where we were going with it until we were in a first grade classroom and a little girl said "We have so much and they have so little, why don't we do something about it" and her teacher said "You're too little to make a difference, wait until you are older!" We knew then that this was going to be our life work.

Qual(is) item(ns) abaixo descreve(m) melhor a(s) barreira(s) que sua inovação soluciona? Escolha até dois itens.

Acesso, Equidade.

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

In 2009, the Khan Market Labour Camp slums where Kutumb originally began its work was demolished. The community was displaced to Ghevra, 35 Kms away from the inner city. Like a lot of other newly formed resettlement slum community, it faces several challenges in terms of accessibility, lack of proper drainage and sewage, lack of a proper supply of potable water, a mal-functional Public Health Unit and poor accessibility to healthcare – the nearest government hospital, Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, is 15 kms away from the community. It’s a severe situation in Ghevra and we are planning a gender-sensitive community development project. Its a fact that in every adverse situation, women and children face the worst of the conditions, we have therefore, planned to take up their cause primarily.

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

After interacting with the community in Ghevra we have several observations: The community has to struggle daily for the basic conditions necessary for a normal life. While men are the major sources of income, women spear-head the daily struggle by running the household and looking after children. Health is a major concern in the community and needless to say, the worst affected are women and children. Apart from economic conditions, we have identified many socio-cultural reasons that act as a hurdle to proper health care for women and children. We have planned series of workshops to raise awareness on gender equity leading to equal right on nutrition, hygiene and health provisions. We plan to hold FGDs regularly with two groups - girls (14-21 years) and women (22-35 years), covering the reproductive period of women's life. We aim to build up self-administrative groups where they can take up community issues affecting health and engage in advocacy and activism for better conditions.

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

The Kutumb Foundation is an education based organization and works mostly to build capacities in children and young people.All program at Kutumb are youth lead and managed(Peer-to-Peer leadership approach).Project SFOORTI will adhere to our original approach:(i) educate and build capacities through non-traditional,innovative mediums; and (ii)Build and encourage Peer-to-Peer leadership. The main target of the program will be young women from 15-25 years and will also involve young boys of the same age group (inclusive gender sensitization).The young people will be trained to be our Community-Peer-Leaders and help us reach out to a larger audience of older women in the 25 to 40 years age bracket. The young men and women will be sensitized through workshops on Gender and Identity,Gender and Equality, Gender and Rights,Gender and Health,Sexuality,and Sexual and Reproductive Health.The trained young women would then help us to reach out to the older women who are already married and may have children.The older women will be engaged through Focused Group Discussions and workshops.The community will be engaged through regular camps on advocacy and health issues.To address another challenge faced by the community - lack of opportunities for the young people, Kutumb will create a Community Resource Center in Ghevra which will be equipped with computers and basic computer training will be imparted to the young people.The center will be lead and managed by duly trained young people from the community, it will host workshops,encourage women's participation and with a focus on health.

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?

We have done a thorough research and identified our peers.For volunteers we will tie up with organisations and universities/colleges-Pravah,Youth Reach,Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College,Delhi School of Social Work etc.For gender workshops we will tie up with organisations like Jagori,Sahyog,Y.P. Foundation and others.For health camps we will tie up with Swasthagram, Tarshi etc.For sharing resources,we will work in a cooperative model with Child Survival India.They are already working in Ghevra but reach out only to older women.Kutumb will spearhead the youth movement in Ghevra by engaging them in a capacity building model to raise awareness on gender and equity in accessing Healthcare.We believe our biggest competitor will be the existing socio-political order that we have to negotiate.

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

I had joined Kutumb a year back and since then I had only heard happier stories of progress Kutumb was making before the devastation happened-the demolition of Khan Market Labour Camp Slums in January,2009.Many lives changed overnight in the light of forced displacement.I heard about the back of the beyond place,Ghevra, which takes easily 2 hours to reach even if you take the metro from Rajiv Chowk.Then came an opportunity to visit Ghevra with volunteers from IIT, Delhi who came to us through Pravah for an Urban Exposure Walk in March 2011.I was baffled to see the complete lack of planning;we walked endlessly without a single tree,we sat in a dilapidated, empty plot under the blazing sun,no drainage,sewage and no potable water supply.Diseases were common but what was not,was a functional public health unit.The young people had resigned to their fates but when they saw us all they said was,"didi,Kutumb ko yaha leker aao(get Kutumb here).I had a promise to keep.That was my 'Aha!' moment.

Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.

Kapil is the President and founding member of The Kutumb Foundation.He is actively involved since its inception in 2002.Kutumb's vision was to create a space that would provide educational & capacity building opportunities to children & young people from under-privileged backgrounds.I am Nandini;I joined Kutumb as the only full-time employee in 2010!The Kutumb experience is special because it relates to my own philosophy & approach.Our common vision is to educate & build capacities through creative arts & innovation,give space to individual ideas,encourage peer-to-peer learning and promote peer leadership.The organisation aims at inclusive,sustainable development & holds the 'community' as the all-important entity.Kutumb believes mutual learning is vital for effective community development

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Since Kutumb started working in 2002 with the Khan Market Labour Camp Slums,there has been some remarkable achievements.The number of children increased continuously as our out-reach expanded.Today we work in Khan Market,Nirmal Primary School-Pandara Road,Nizamuddin;we have initiated community interactions & need-assessments survey at Ghevra;we conduct creative workshops across the NCR through various tie-ups.Two of the children who participated in the football-based-life-skills program,Goal of Life,today lead & manage it in the several places we work.Two of our children who learnt puppetry through Kutumb are professional puppeteers with Katkatha.One of our young leaders hold an important position in a reputed dance school in Delhi,one of them is working with the Income Tax Department;several of the young members have initiated their own entrepreneurial ventures.Through partner organisations,we provide opportunities of growth to our young members.Peer leadership is our strength.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?

SFOORTI aims at Gender Equity Project in Healthcare with a focus on Maternal & Child Health.The high rates of maternal and child mortality is often influenced by traditional & cultural practices which encourages the society to neglect proper care for women affecting their health negatively.Girls often suffer from malnutrition,thus,the high rates of anemia among the Indian women (a major factor for high maternal and child mortality).The project will address gender issues,socio-cultural aspects of healthcare,challenge unscientific & harmful traditional practices,raise awareness on sexual & reproductive health;generate community participation & leadership for advocating to improve better civic facilities and access to healthcare.It will create a computerized resource center for the youth.

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

The challenge to this project is the existing socio-political conditions.Socially,the target community is predominantly patriarchal & discourage women's participation in public sphere(Women are not encouraged to study or work).Most women are ignorant & lack awareness on issues related to their health,such as,sexual & reproduction health.Therefore,it will be a challenge to engage women in discussions on issues that are taboo for them.Another challenge will be to get young women & men participate in community action, together.We will overcome this by regular FGDs,workshops,film screenings etc.in separate gender-groups or together,as required.Advocacy for civic amenities against a corrupt and bureaucratic system will be a challenge but will be addressed through capacity building workshops.

Kutumb continues to run from Khan Market where we had originally began working.At our alternate-education program,INDRADHANUSH(ID) & GOAL OF LIFE(GOL)-football based life-skills program,we get children from the servant quarters,children from the Khan Market crossing & from the nearby Sai Baba Mandir,Lodhi Road,crossing.GOL also takes place at Nizamuddin with the children living in the slums behind Sunder Nursery.SFOORTI,will be implemented at Ghevra where we will work with the displaced slum communities to address gender equity in healthcare & enable gender-sensitive community development.

Que tipo de ambiente operacional e fatores da organização interna ajudarão o projeto a ser bem sucedido?

Kutumb runs through a non-hierarchical,democratic,participatory model.It encourages community lead initiatives and upholds the peer-to-peer learning and leadership model.Kutumb empowers young people to enable them to make their own choices rather than look out for messiahs on whom they can depend.We strive to bring informed conversations to community and follow a bottom-up approach.Our innovation will be successful owing to the fact that the decision making power and accountability will rest with the community (young women and men).We will also approach community work through a cooperative model (liaisoning with other organisations).The staff will play the role of guides and provide support,the organisation will be catalyst,while,the real innovators will be the community youth members.

Kutumb is a small organisation with limited resources.Through SFOORTI,we will increase resources to support our expansion initiative in Ghevra.The project will help us build on our media out-reach,expand our volunteer base,improve material resources & hire human resource. Kutumb has a network of organizations and we can use that for the project and share the same with other projects.

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?

Social inequality is a major problem in Latin America, particularly in Mexico. Our country represents the 14th economy in the world, but it also has 52 million poor people, which means 46% of its total population (CONEVAL, 2012). Jalisco, where we live, is one of the richest states in the country, but the people living in extreme poverty accounts up to 362,000 (CONEVAL Jalisco, 2012). In the current education system, there is no interaction between private and public schools, leading to a lack of knowledge and understanding of the social needs of the most vulnerable within the community. Mexico is divided in two social spheres that never blend, but live next door.

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

To create awareness among privileged youth about the social inequalities within our own community. "The School Next Door" links neighbor private and public schools into a partnership with the aim of creating a space for teenagers with different economic backgrounds to come together and share their thoughts. Through games, sports and cultural programs, students learn to be empathic with each other and become more committed citizens since early age.

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

"The School Next Door" brings neighbor private and public schools together through games, sports, and cultural activities that take place in a regular basis. This interaction promotes empathy among privileged youth, resulting in their engagement to improve the living conditions of the neediest and thus aiming to create a more equitable society. Our goal is to achieve a change of behavior that will commit privileged youth with their community.

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

Several private schools organize social programs among their students in order to expose them to the situation of underprivileged youth. Nevertheless, all of these programs teach them to help the others and to do charity. "The school next door" would be the first one that would actually encourage them to form real friendships. "The school next door" does not explicitly make the private school students help others, but rather encourages a real exposure and understanding of their situation. Engagement comes as a natural result.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Still in idea phase, but looking to launch soon.

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

Our desired impact for the next 1-3 years is:

First year: Linking 3 public and 3 private schools to participate in the School Next Door's events. Each school would have a representative team of 50 middle-school students. In total, 300 students from 6 schools would have participated.

Second year: Linking 5 public and 5 private schools to participate in the School Next Door's events. Each school would have a representative team of 50 middle-school students. In total 500 students form 10 schools would have participated.

Third year: Linking 7 public and 7 private schools to participate in TSND's events. Each school would have a representative team of 50 middle-school students. In total 700 students from 14 schools would have participated.

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

- Lack of interest of schools.
How to overcome this problem: Presenting the project as a new approach to youth engagement, as an opportunity to teach empathy and identify community leaders. Our goal would be to instutionalize TSND and to constitute it as a reputable program worth belonging to.
- Lack of support from the parents.
How to overcome this problem? Having their children being part of a network of graduates that would follow-up on their school progress and offering them opportunities (scholarships, leadership workshops and/or participation in youth events). Our goal would be to convince them that TSND would bring more opportunities to their kids.
- Lack of funding.
Who would pay for the programs? Our stategic partners would sponsor the events.

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]

TSND is actually the result of months of discussion about the problems within the Mexican education system and the lack of programs adressing the promotion of empathy among privileged and underprivileged youth. We have had the opportunity to participate in several international events and meet young leaders from all over the world, but have noticed that social mobility is only possible for those who come from a privileged background, as ourselves. We want The School Next Door to become a leading institution that will tackle this problem and engage youth in mutual undestanding and community work. Furthermore, we envision TSND as an opportunity to diminish the wide social gap in our country, by bringing both sides to work together in the achievement of collective goals.

We have total support from the department of International Affairs at ITESM University in Guadalajara. However, our strategic alliances would focus on areas of interest to TSND:
-Public and private schools: providing participants.
-Targeted companies: sponsoring our events. If we want TSND events to be cultural and sports based, we would like to have sports and cultural companies on our side.
-Language schools: Offering scholarships to those students without command of English.

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

In high schools, teenagers are primed to solve issues in their community and their world. They are passionate, growing leaders faced with a number of problems. However, often teenagers do not feel inspired to take action, or they don't know how they can make a difference. In their English and social studies classes, they are reading old literature and learning about things that happened centuries ago, and sometimes have trouble connecting it to their lives today. They need modern texts that inspire them to learn about problems in the world and take action about the issues they care about.

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

Films can serve this purpose in the classroom, with the right framing in the lessons. Films are visual, emotional, and feel relevant to students. Many films have a clear message that inspires action. These powerful films shape our educational landscape and alter the way we view our world. They have the potential to make a lasting and sustained difference in the attitudes and behaviors of generations of people. Here at Big Picture Instructional Design, we design custom lesson plans about issue-driven films, and use these movies to inspire thoughtful discussion and heated debate in the classroom. We use this conversation to push students to learn about issues in the film that interest them and undergo service learning projects. Some of these projects are as easy as sending a letter to a policymaker or tweeting about a key issue, or as involved as hosting a local event for refugees or launching their own activist organization.

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

The film we are working on right now is called The Last Survivor. The Last Survivor is an award-winning documentary that follows the survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities--the Holocaust, Darfur, Rwanda, and Congo--as they work to make sense of their experiences, rebuild their lives, and get involved as activists in the issues the film addresses. We worked with the production company Righteous Pictures to design a 70-page educational resource guide about the film.

The resource guide begins with questions to inspire discussion after a classroom or school-wide screening of the film, and is followed by three modular lesson plans. The first lesson focuses on Making Sense of the Past, and explores how the survivors can cope with what happened to them to build a new life in a new city. The second lesson uses The Universal Declaration of Human Rights to help participants understand the importance of reaching a universal consensus regarding basic human rights and protecting those rights for all individuals. The third lesson focuses on Forgiveness, Rebirth, and Change to help participants understand the ways that survivors in the film began looking forward to the future, and then began their own active involvement in the issues. These lessons are followed by service learning prompts for the students to take action in local refugee communities.

Now, we are reaching out to schools, individual teachers, student organizations, and non-profits around the country to encourage their use of The Last Survivor and our lessons in their classrooms.

Film Education and Film Club in the UK both work to bring films into the classroom to make sure students can critically analyze film and become media literate citizens. Young Minds Inspired, based in Connecticut, writes lessons and curricular materials about films as well. However, none of these organizations focuses specifically on issue-driven films and compel students to action. Also, Film Ed and YMI do not create curriculum that is quite as extensive as our average educational resource guide. Their guides are often 5-15 pages, whereas our guides are 30-70 pages, including screening questions, modular lesson plans, service learning prompts, professional development agendas, and standards alignment.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We have worked on seven films in the past four years, and each campaign reaches thousands of educators and thus millions of students. Specifically our outreach for the film The Conspirator reached approximately 80,000 teachers and 12M students. Our outreach for The Last Survivor, which is ongoing through the summer, has reached approximately 30,000 teachers and 5M students. It has the potential to reach many more as the months progress, as our resource guides are downloaded every day for free from our site.

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

We have been working on about two film projects a year up to this point, but we would like to double our project load to four films a year. Thus, our projected reach will double, as will our impact. In other words, we hope to reach over 300,000 teachers and thus 45 million students a year, compelling 100% of them to think deeply about the films, 80% to discuss them, and at least 50% to take direct action as a result of engaging with the film.

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

Right now, we only have two full-time employees and a number of part-time interns and contractors that help us with our outreach, curriculum design, and proofreading. We need more full-time employees to juggle the creation of four resource guides a year and four separate outreach campaigns. In order to overcome this barrier, we need more funding. We will do this by streamlining our packages to be affordable to smaller budget films focused on important issues, and we will pitch more frequently, thus getting more clients. We are also strongly considering applying for nonprofit status and hiring a grant writer, because the work we do falls within the realm of nonprofit work as it encourages volunteer work in local and global movements.

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]

In 2008, a colleague completed a comprehensive study, asking teachers to identify one teaching resource they used to teach the Holocaust every year. Overwhelmingly, they answered “Schindler’s List,” even though it was more than 15 years after the film’s release. This got us thinking about the transformative power of film--not just to inspire conversations on the way home from the theater, but to change attitudes and behaviors in a lasting and sustainable way. Film has an immediacy that other media do not, inspiring empathy, giving viewers a real window into other people’s experiences. Our mission is to facilitate the use of film in order to enact social change-–creating a meaningful and relevant context that allows this powerful medium to change the world.

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

We get hired by production companies and studios to do educational outreach for their issue driven films, such as Participant Media, American Film Company, and Righteous Pictures. They are clients in theory, but we work with them more as if they are partners. During our outreach, we partner with public school districts, museums and other educational non-profits, local youth media organizations, and individual teachers and schools, to plan screenings and workshops about the film we are working on. In fact, our outreach is always based on forging strong, relevant partnerships.

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

We would need at least 3 full-time employees as well as one volunteer intern. The four roles would be: Curriculum Writer, Outreach Coordinator, Business Development Manager, and Education Marketing Intern (an education or marketing college student). With only four employees, we would share many of the tasks. For instance, although the Curriculum Writer will be the primary author of our guides, the other three employees will help with researching background information and generating discussion questions and action prompts. Within ten years, we want to employ 15 people as we add more projects.

We are specifically interested in educators: teachers in the secondary classroom, teacher education programs at universities, and national teaching organizations and conferences. Having teachers on our board to review our materials and make suggestions is an important part of our growth and learning process. These are the community resources that are most valuable to us.

There are few arenas connecting people in developing countries with global opportunities and a killing competition for jobs and opportunities. In most developing countries, you are doomed to a life in poverty, unless you find a way to stand out, and if someone facilitates your connection with opportunity.

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

We match students with global opportunities through contests. Essay-, case-, arts-, or other challenges. By cooperating with companies and organizations, we provide platform and create arenas where students in developing countries can win and access global opportunities. By participating in challenges, you can gain merits, show your skills and get feedback on your performance. In this way, young people in developing countries get access to opportunities they could never get access to otherwise.

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

I think all businesses will need to consider the opportunities in developing countries sooner or later, not because of pity, but because it is a huge market. The market in the Bottom of the Pyramid is largely untapped and any company with a socially, environmentally and financially stable business model have a great opportunity to be successful and at the same time contribute to the development of the

In the same way as the West is trying to teach the "developing" world how to act, I also see much opportunity in redoing and relearning many things that we have failed with in the West and build a new infrastructure in the developing world. Hellping Africa to leapfrog "bad" technologies will be one of the most social entrepreneurial things that can be done .

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

I would love to establish Studentcompetitions.com in Uganda and connect every University in the country to global opportunities, through contests. Bringing that inspiration to the young people of Uganda will be the most rewarding part of my stay.

The most challenging part will be to find a business model that is sustainable in the long term too, the £10 000 will only be enough to set up an initial office, then I need to find a demand from MNCs, for example of recruitment in Uganda. However i LOVE the challegne of creating a sustainable business model and am super determined to succeed and to make Uganda a center for global student opportunities in Africa.

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

Young people are not finding appropriate ways to express their feelings; at a critical point in their lives, when the need to be heard is so important, they are too often silent. This not only creates a lack of empathy, but also a climate of distrust and a culture of disengagement. When their voices are not integrated into the emotional life and decision-making of the community, they often feel worthless and act out in socially-inappropriate and criminal ways. Nowhere is this is more evident than in schools and neighborhoods made invisible by isolation and poverty. Arts education programming in the United States has been gutted, and few people are teaching a shared language of emotional literacy throughout these communities. This is a crisis threatening our most basic values.

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

Young people deserve a voice!

MAPP places youth at the center of the learning process and empowers them through an intensive arts immersion program.

They write one-act plays, through mentored playwriting workshops. In the creative process they learn to listen and to trust, develop their emotional literacy, reveal their aspirations and fears, think and write into the midst of conflict and crisis, and use their voices to impact others.

They participate as the writer, in a rehearsal process with a director and professional actors.

Live presentations with professional actors are offered, in elementary, middle and high schools, community centers, universities, and other public forums, with the young playwright present on stage, as the honored playwright. They participate in post-play discussions to talk about their work, especially with other youth.

This cultivates positive media attention and instills a greater respect for creative education .

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

We are an arts education provider that partners with schools and not-for-profit youth development organizations to bring unique playwriting workshops to young people and to provide community presentations of their work.

Development: Meetings organized by MAPP with leaders, advocates, artists, and educators to create an active base of community awareness and support.

The Playwriting Workshops: This a literacy enrichment program. A group of young people, each paired with a mentor actor/writer, participates in a progressive series of intensive playwriting workshops.

Training: toward building community infrastructure. We provide specialized workshops on the role of the mentor artist, capacity building in community and fundraising consultation.

Presentation: The production of a staged reading series of the young playwright’s work, where the young person plays an active, central role. These dramatic presentations are seen by hundreds of their peers and adults. During these events, all of the youth are asked to respond to the themes present in the work.

Starting from within the community, we work with a small group of young people, who commit themselves to the process of exploring their hopes and fears. From there, we are able to engage the larger community, especially the young people's peers, families, and educators.

In the multiple communities we have worked with thus far, we have witnessed a huge change in behavioral problems. as well as a greater compassion and better understanding amongst young people about other peoples challenges.

Competitors: Arts education organizations that place youth in a passive role.

A peer: Virginia Avenue Project in Santa Monica, California.

What differentiates MAPP is our broader focus on community support. By placing a greater awareness on the reciprocal relationship the community must play in a young person’s education, we engage peers, parents, educators, and elders in a dialogue. This aspect of "listening" at the program development stage and later through audience participation at the youth centered events, ensures that the young person's needs are heard and addressed. We also focus on rural areas and urban populations with limited access to creative resources and funding.

My hope is more organizations will focus on and have access to this youth empowered approach.

By providing youth centered arts programming, the MAPP program has a ripple effect on whole communities, including peers, educators, parents, and leaders.

Hundreds of youth have written plays by participating in the mentored workshops enhancing their literacy skills.

The plays, with the youth present, have been presented at major universities, native health centers, schools, and human rights and cultural centers, reaching thousands of youth and community members.

The Nez Perce Tribe has successfully petitioned the State of Idaho to include the MAPP model as a literacy based credit for graduation.

Each year's plays are now a featured component at the Lewis-Clark State College Native American Awareness Week.

Greater awareness of the community, especially marginalized youth, through positive media exposure has been achieved across the nation.

Many university partnerships use this as a way to interface with and recruit potential students.

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

Though Thomas Dean Kellogg started developing and implementing mentored playwriting programs nearly 20 years ago, the MAPP organization has been officially in existence since 2004. In these 8 years, a solid foundation for growth has been laid, mostly through the MAPP Young Native Playwrights Initiative. The plan for the next 1 to 3 years is to expand the model to provide it to more communities, helping young people to get the creative education and necessary recognition, especially of educators and college recruiters who can help them move forward, and to build a network of support and awareness amongst supporters, activists and policy makers.

We expect to reach a larger audience base as well. This will help all the participants, writers and "listeners" to be engaged in the process.

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

The economic crisis has had a huge impact on the philanthropic community while causing huge cuts to education, and most of the marginalized groups who have ongoing MAPP programs or are in development with us, face major funding issues.

We have been working very hard over the past 3 years to restructure and streamline the teaching model without compromising the integrity of the process. It has worked thus far, and a plan to provide advanced pedagogical training is in the works. We have also been consulting with the individual communities to help them to identify and expand their awareness of available sources of funding.

The goal for all of us is build a model that can continue to provide much needed arts programming to our young people. Strengthening our network is important.

Nearly 20 years ago, I was invited to an evening of theatre written by young people. I remember telling my friends, family and colleagues after the performance, and for days, that I had witnessed something extraordinary, even spiritual. I got involved in mentoring youth right then and there.

Shortly thereafter, I was working in a lock down facility for youth offenders. A young African American man had written a play about a bear, and in his monologue he shared his pain of having to be the one to protect the bear clan against the wolf pack. Through the metaphor he was able to engage the audience. Afterwards in a circle, amongst the young men and their mentors, one of the guards openly wept, sharing that he knew these young men had something special in them, but he had not seen it come out until that day. He said he could never look at them the same way again.

From this experience, I saw the power of story to heal, and to bring people together for greater understanding.

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

Story Swap was founded as a perspective-taking classroom exercise to broaden students’ worldviews through writing. However, it quickly became apparent that the curriculum also addressed schools’ higher needs: breaking down isolation, increasing empathy, and encouraging leadership. The exigency of these needs is born out in the daily headlines and social research on the absence of empathy (i.e. bullying, conflict, violence). The unique characteristics of adolescence—self-consciousness, anxiety about social order, hormonal fluctuations—may also interfere with teens’ known capacity for empathy. Story Swap addresses these needs by using accessible, story-based arts to build empathy, helping participants unlock their potential and change the culture of their schools

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

Building on the dozens of successful swaps to date, our goal is to create a pilot program to expand the Story Swap curriculum into as many secondary school classrooms as possible. We have partnered with Aspen High School in Aspen, CO, to build a pilot for national and international expansion. The initiative has two arms: a one-day swap among the schools’ teachers, staff, and administrators (T2T) and a semester-long course in Story Swap for the students (S2S). The T2T swap will be a professional development day, allowing adult participants to earn credit and experience a swap first-hand, which is the initial training step to facilitate the ripple effect of future swaps in their classrooms. The S2S semester will include standards-based creative writing, swaps co-lead by trained teachers, and service learning to raise money for a weeklong student exchange with another school. The outcome of this trial year will be a strategic plan for future expansion throughout the country and beyond.

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

When a swap begins, individuals from different backgrounds come together to form partners and share their stories. Seated face-to-face, participants are asked to tell their partner an essential story from their life that is representative of who they are. They then recreate their partner’s narrative and write the story as if it were their own. By receiving the story of another, recasting it in their own idiom, and, then, exchanging the remixed stories, participants experience the transformative process of walking in one another’s shoes and sharing the view they see from another’s eyes. As they do this, swappers experience the dismantling of stereotypes and the building of understanding.
The program is powerful because it harnesses storytelling—the most accessible and universal of all human activities—to open doors of communication that might otherwise be closed. Because this idea is translated experientially, with students taking charge of their own stories and being responsible for those of others, the empathy learning is particularly accessible and resonant. As Mickey Bergman, director of Middle East Programs at the Aspen Institute affirms: “The program’s model taps into the creativity of youth and engages them not through the lens of their conflict, but rather through their storytelling and listening. The methodology allows participants to genuinely take in perspectives without the ‘threatening’ proposition of agreeing with one another.”

In Aspen’s Roaring Fork Valley, there is no other arts-based, empathy-building program. As a matter of course, when we enter new areas, we survey existing services that address empathy-building and story-based arts, so that Story Swap may enhance and quickly integrate into the established educational landscape. So far we have not encountered any “competition” and preliminary data indicates that Story Swap may be unique in the field. Experts working in education and empathy, including Sam Chaltain, a national education scholar/speaker, informed us that they knew of no other organization doing this type of work on this scale. We will welcome learning from peers as we discover them.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Story Swap enriches the lives of students and teachers of all backgrounds by giving them the tools, training, and support to create a more peaceful, compassionate world, starting with their own story. The program develops not only writing skills, but also empathic aptitude, which in turn fosters capacity for leadership and investment in one’s community. Story Swap’s unique promise is to make connections between individuals who in turn make deeper connections within their communities.
As one of our teen participants said: “The most important thing I learned is that no matter where you are from we can all get along.” 
She embodies the transformative impact of the model:
sharing stories > perspective-taking > empathy > pro-social behavior
As each participant experiences this shift, they develop the capacity to make individual decisions that collectively create positive change in their school and community.

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

In our pilot year, we hope to facilitate three swaps: two intra-school swaps at Aspen High (T2T and S2S) and an inter-school swap between the students of AHS and another school. These will directly and indirectly engage approximately 60 adults and 500 students at two schools, and have the opportunity to ultimately influence secondary schools across the nation and beyond when the full program is rolled out. Since the program’s inception, we have conducted dozens of successful Story Swaps within neighborhoods, across economic divides, over state lines and international borders, and among religions. We will draw on this history, weighed against the quantitative and qualitative assessment of the pilot, to develop the strategic plan that will lead to national and international expansion.

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

We are in a pivotal moment in the development of Story Swap. To date, each swap has been a de facto pilot. That is, as we have expanded into new school districts, we have customized each program to fit local parameters. We have gained experience and expertise along the way, yet this has also made for the creation of a “new” program over and over again. We come to you because we recognize that we have a proven, powerful program in need of a more sustainable growth model. Our goal is to take positive steps to change this, creating a true pilot program, with broad evaluation and monitoring, so that we may develop a systematic process to grow Story Swap to a more mature level. Our findings will be the foundation of the strategic plan.

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]

Early on, Story Swap founder Jordan Dann listened to a woman telling her Swap partner’s story. “The moment that she said ‘I’,” Jordan said, “I saw a shift in her body and voice. I saw barriers dissolve. And I saw ownership. She was speaking from her partner’s experience, but when she began to speak, it was her own experience.” Later, when the program took root in a high school classroom with native and non-native English speakers, Jordan witnessed students “who had never had conversations before, suddenly engaging, laughing, smiling, asking questions, listening to each other. They were holding each other’s important memory and because of that we made a relationship, and an intimate one.” Not only had the students forged friendships, they had also discovered their creativity, which for some was a new experience. Supporting them was a circle of participants also saying, “Look what you’ve created.” Jordan added, “That was when I knew everyone needs to do this, the world needs this.”

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

When a natural disaster strikes people lose family members, their homes, patterns of life, livelihoods and very often their state of wellbeing and their mental health is often negatively impacted for months or longer. Psychological resilience for both the young and the elderly is deeply rocked by the impacts of a disaster. In smaller developing nations across the Pacific mental health services are often the smallest sector within health systems. There is no full time psychiatrist to service the nation of nearly 200,000 people. The government budget currently affords a part time psychiatrist specialist from Australia. When the Tsunmai 2009 struck - there were no community based services to meet increased mental health needs caused by the disaster.

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

The solution was to rebuild the resilience of the affected populations through a community outreach programme. Without this we believed that the disaster impacts would continue for another generation. We called on our friends to come and help with informing and designing the intervention.
Leadership was held firmly by our Samoan Coordinator, with support from the home agency the Family Centre. The Family Centre drew on our existing partners in Samoa and we worked together to build capacity by training a 'community outreach team'. We called in the best psychologists and adocescent mental health psychiatrists familiar with Samoan cultural norms, who were accountable to Samoan leadership from our agency. We developed a Childrens programme which we took through the affected villages with the support of local schools. Teams visited every family impacted by the tsunami over 6 weeks in 2009 and recently in 2011. We documented visits & indicators of their well-being.

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

In our experience when a crisis happens, whether its a death in the family or a Tsunami that has taken everything that formed the familiar, its vital to the future resilience,wellbeing and recovery of the imapacted populations that they receive some comforting , pastoral care and even have some external witnesses to their losses / grief.

We drew on Samoan cultural practices and the best social science and therapeutic knowedge we could and developed a method for the basis of our community outreach programme. A team of 20 'pastoral workers' from the Catholic Archdiocese of Samoa including others from NZ and the USA was formed. Non-Samoan mental health specialists were attached to each of the Samoan teams. Their role was to support the Samoan teams. The Principal Team leader (Co-ordinator of the Pacific Section of Family Centre) provided supervision and de-briefs. The teams worked with village leaders in each location identifying impacted families. Families were visited, preliminary assessments of wellbeing were carried out. Those in need of intensive follow up were referred to team specialists.

Children (under 10 years) and Elders needed intensive follow up. We spent more time with Elders. We developed with our Child and adolescent psychiatrist specialist a format of 'Childrens Camps'. Camps aimed to reduce post disaster stress levels so children could regain concentration and reduce their fears. Activites had to be fun and include a meal. Nearly 1300 Children participated. We have just carried out follow up visitations to over 500 households.

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

At the time there were others involved in 'Psycho-social responses' but these were on an individual less collaborative basis. That proved unsustainable given the scale of need and lack of local funding.
We were able to sustain our own mental health response strategy because of a large network of supporters, including faithbased organisations, both in Samoa and internationally. Mental Health is often overlooked and under resourced post disaster but consequences are connected to physical health impacts: e.g increased blood pressure, internalised stresses = early death. We connected these to Livelihood and economic health and inter-generational health issues. Children are survivors too. In our experience there a few competitors in our region. We continue to work in this area.

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

Across the Oceanic environment of the Pacific we have island nations struggling against rising sea levels, Christchurch city in New Zealand experiencing on-going earthquakes and climate change causing impacts on populations' physical, cultural, spiritual, economic, mental and psychological health. When everything that connects us as humans to our place and sense of belonging and our material world is destroyed specialised health attention is needed. We arrived into Samoa, from New Zealand a day after the tsunami with with doctors and emergency para-medics. When we took them to the National Hospital to join the emergency medical teams the Chief of Clinical Services, who knew the background of the Family Centre asked for help, "we have no psych-mental health services to help people. Please do something." Our solution was to develop a community outreach partnership between local and international specialists to address mental health impacts of the disaster.

Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.

Rebuilding mental health resilience following a disaster/crisis through a community outreach programme as a key response to a natural disaster.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Our agency leaders were called in by the New Zealand Social Policy and Welfare agency to do similar work in New Zealand. Christchurch city was hit in September 2010 by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake killing 182 people. The Samoan experience went onto impact the work with Christchurch emergency, health, education, government and non-government and community workers.

Two years later we are still the only team (we would say in the Pacific region) to have developed a specific response to the mental health impacts of disasters and trialed it so extensively. In Samoa we have gathered information on the general health and wellbeing of each of the famiiies impacted by the tsunami. No other agencies have gathered this level of information.

In the meantime we have been very heartened to see the high levels of recovery and can specifically identify specific programmes that are needed for example in the health, economic development, housing or water policy areas.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?

Across the Pacific region impact may include: drawing on what we have learned and work with specific Ministries of government, the national Churches or local village leadership to shape policy and/or projects that will improve future outcomes for Children, young people and their leadership groups, and Elders.

The main projected impact? To strengthen regional resilience in health, social, cultural, economic and environment sectors.

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

Possible Barriers: Samoan Government fears of criticism of their handling of the disaster affected villages or populations.

To overcome this we have worked to develop positive and transparent relationships with major ministries e.g. Health, Education and Women, Community and Social Development. One practical example was that we invited the MInistry of Women, Community and Social Development to contribute any questions they may want to include in our review within our quesitonnaire which we put to each of the households that we visited.

Our Samoan partnerships contribute 'in kind' human resources and skills rather than financing. Our strongest and most consistent partnership in Samoa is with the Catholic Archdiocese of Samoa - Apia. They support the building of capacity of their pastoral workers so that in the event of any future disasters they can respond locally.

Samoan Government Social Policy Ministries are newer partners but they are critical to the success of social and economic resilience. These Ministries are supportive but they are not financing us. We are building sensitive and transparent relationships.

Atualmente você planeja atender outros locais, mercados e populações específicas com sua inovação? Se sim, onde e por quê?

Based on our own experience our targeted populations are the indigenous populations in our region of the Pacific. Building Regional Resilience will draw upon local peoples, indigenous cultural knowlegdes , environment and practices as the major resources.

Que tipo de ambiente operacional e fatores da organização interna ajudarão o projeto a ser bem sucedido?

Operating environment: The partners in this innovation share values inclusive of social justice and compassion so Leaders and workers develop responses to crisis.

Partnerships across Oceanic 'borders'- relationships between New Zealand and Samoa are historic as New Zealand was a former colonial power. Staff in the Pacific Section are Samoans connected to their places of belonging, so relationships are built over time. The Family Centre as an organisation is innovative with cultural sections that operate autonomously but interdependently. These sections are empowered to set their work priorities in relationship with one another. These relationships are underpinned by accountability to one another and a shared set of social justice values.

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

Social networks are well known as places to share life moments, connect & get social validation. The value & sociological effect of "sharing" is massive but there's need to go deeper into the human experience, which includes positive social action. People already do good deeds but would do more if shared & if a rewarding & connected experience.

AOK is where daily good deeds & positive acts are shared, validated & rewarded, which infuses more empathy in the world via AOKers' collective positive Acts & Observations of Kindness. A "best of breed" solution with networking features familiar to Facebook & Twitter, AOK also rewards users with gaming elements common to Foursquare & Freerice.

AOK's a "gamified" social network that meets the human need to share & validate positive action.

Never before have people of all ages easily tracked, shared & received rewards for positive social action, even when these moments are ephemeral/ancillary to life.

For schools, AOK's light integration is a custom group page per class or school. We also aggregate AOKs from group-chosen "brand of kindness" via "Flashtags" (like Twitter's hashtag), activity feed widgets or our interactive Facebook app. Contests & custom rewards provide incentives. Schools/classes host competitions, driving kids to top leader boards & earn the most points. Our white label ("Gameboard", a deeper integration) gives schools their own game & social network for causes.

Roadmap features interactive graphic views of the "butterfly effect of good" & limited edition virtual art earned according to AOKs posted.

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

A person, often school aged & perhaps without experience supporting causes, joins AOK. Within days, they may see someone helping another fix a flat tire. They photograph the moment & post an Observation, earning 50 points. Conscious now of how Acts & Observations are real currency at AOK, that same person waits for a school bus near a 7-11 & may see stray cups on the ground. Instead of expecting someone else to pick them up, our AOK'er does it. They post the Act via an iPhone or our website, get 110 points & create a "Flashtag" called *CleanABusStop. He/she encourages friends to do likewise by sharing the Flashtag on Facebook & Twitter- earning another 100 points. Soon, friends join AOK & pitch in on the *CleanABusStop campaign. Local bus stops get cleaner. AOK then aks 7-11 to incentivize more AOK's by offering coupons to AOK'ers who present *CleanYourBusStop AOK reward screens (7-11 may customize this screen) to cashiers.

The result?

1) Thousands of students nationwide make bus stops clean, get rewarded with either discounts or the option to convert points into donations to causes & relief efforts & they become more mindful of their impact.

2) School admins track individual, class &/or school's "AOK Impact" via myriad metrics- quantifying results with data.

3) 7-11 gets CSR credit, schools crowd-source empathetic behaviors & social action & communities improve.

Now extrapolate this experience, imagining "AOK Ambassadors" (students) organizing school-school competitions. Students compete for prizes & social status & the "AOK Score" becomes a standard!

The "for good" landscape is burgeoning since cause marketing became a competitive advantage. And schools now offer emotional intelligence lessons. There are more competitors than ever but none robust like AOK. Twitter for example, is used "for good" & their size is a competitive challenge, but a tweet's lifespan is short & doesn't directly benefit causes. AOK features "following" & aggregates tagged posts like Twitter, yet AOK's impact beyond posts & engagement are cause donations! Foursquare's a location-based game but not "for good". AOK's mobile app is like Foursquare & effects positive change! "For good" leaders (Tonic, Freerice & CauseCast) are scaled but AOK's unique proposition to users is a lifelong diary of social change & a social network/game totally dedicated to social good.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Our community, now with AOK'ers in over 7 countries, already posted enough positive social action for us to donate to & promote causes like Global Green, American Refugee Committee, American Red Cross' relief in Joplin, MO & Japan, a middle school in Sequoia, CA & The Pacer Center for the Prevention of Bullying. At a client level, Russell Simmons' Peace Week event, hosted by LifeCamp, just used AOK to convert participant lessons-learned into action- And now they're using AOK for future events! At the user level, many AOK'ers, mostly students new to social action, reported increased mindfulness about everyday surroundings & a zeal to do more- from their part towards the environment, to generally behaving more empathetic & gracious.

San Diego State's "30 days of AOK" campaign (http://aok.tv/*sdsu) demonstrated teacher & student enthusiasm for AOK's tools last year.

AOK's best is yet to come! With "The Wave" & "Tats" features imminent, if schools embrace AOK, our impact will soar!

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

We're projecting our community at low 7 figures within 2 years from our August, 2011 launch & doubling that figure by the end of our 3rd year.

But that doesn't speak to our projected IMPACT during the next 1-3 years.

One of our core long-term goals is increasing societal mindfulness by making social responsibility fun & rewarding. We've witnessed positive transformations of behaviors among our team & among people who'd never prioritized doing or noticing good deeds.

It's nearly impossible to quantify exactly how we'll impact the next 1-3 years. But if we hit our adoption targets as planned, we're projecting a trend (especially among school-aged people) where "being AOK" will be a hip thing to do.

And that trend can become a more evolved & empathetic humanity! That's AOK!

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

Our biggest barrier to success is getting out in front of enough people. Once people post an AOK, not only do they post again, their average time spent on AOK during campaigns is 8-10 minutes. We anticipate that adding "The Wave" & "Tats" features will greatly increase that duration.

On a shoe-string budget however, we've had to subjugate marketing & PR to iterate & tighten technology. So, AOK's community growth rate so far, at about 10% a week, is due mostly to organic word of mouth.

Another barrier could be if big players like Facebook, Twitter or Foursquare deploy similar functionality as AOK before we scale. We've been tracking the rising popularity of cause marketing solutions & sites that illuminate positive behavior, so we know it's crucial to get popular fast!

AOK was conceived by Ira & Lynn Liss, a married couple working in separate industries- Ira in Hollywood & Lynn in startups via management consulting. They'd similar feelings about personal responsibility & discussed EVERYTHING so were bound to work together. Lynn co-founded a video share site that incentivized micro-activism (TGO) & Ira later moonlighted to introduce celebrity clients. Ira met with Adrian Grenier (actor/activist & SHFT cofounder) who conveyed a long-time passion to build a picture share site about kind acts. A TBD joint venture would soon be forged!

Weeks passed. Ira & Lynn noodled incessantly about viable SHFT/TGO JVs, saw Foursquare explode & researched the landscape. Then, a moment of clarity in the car: It struck them that people yearned to take part in the "values revolution" & that a game could be the PERFECT vehicle for it!

They were delighted to then learn a "games for good" niche existed & so pitched a leader in the space, Natron Baxter, who accepted!

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

Every child got some talent and a dream to get into a career they love.
But Most of them are stifled by the gap between dream and reality.
Students and parents ignorant about value of the talent possessed by the kid, sometimes they even fail to identify the hidden talent. Even if there are someone who identified they talent, there is no support system which motivates students to pursue their passion. All the stake holders like parents , teachers, school work individually without proper focus or plan. Students don't know why they are studying ,what they have to learn to get into a particular career,neither they know what they’ll be doing once they get into a particular career. This ends up in getting into a wrong career.

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

Inspire, Enable and Mentor students to follow their passion and stay ahead in life. Inspire Students to follow Passion. Help students identify hidden talent and make them aware about the opportunities available for them in sectors they are interested. Enable Ecosystem to Nurture Talent

Talent 360 is a technological and social platform which brings together all the stake holders in school education under one roof and make them work towards a common goal of helping students attain success in life.
Eg a student is interested in painting but he feels insecure to pursue his passion , he don't know how to convert this interest into a professional skill, neither he knows the job opportunities of market demand.
With our Info service we make parents and student aware about the opportunities in animation and media industries which need creative skills. Then we inform them about various courses/events happening in an around the city which can help students nurture that talent into a professional. Analyze students performance in these events and help students evaluate themselves with the competition outside. Once the student has nurtured the skill and is confident of his skill we connect him with industry and give a feel of the job options through industry visits / internship. Then we connect with subject experts who can mentor students in the right path to attain a job of their choice. By the time the student passes out from school he'll have a clear idea his strengths and weakness as well as the career which suits him best. Student will be clear about the next steps he got to take inorder to pursue his dream.

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

In the words of the Mission Hill K-8 School (MHS) Statement of Purpose: "To help parents raise youngsters who will maintain and nurture the best habits of a democratic society, be smart, caring, strong, resilient, imaginative and thoughtful. It (the school) aims at producing youngsters who can live productive, socially useful and personally satisfying lives, while also respecting the rights of all others."

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

For over 15 years, the staff of MHS has created a dynamic, supportive, inclusive, and successful learning community in which children and their their families maintain and nurture the democratic habits described above. The school is being moved in September 2012, expanding to accept three and four year-old students, half of whom will have special needs. Through an innovative model and curriculum, the school meets the needs of a diverse body of learning styles. Through expansion of our existing successful educational program and the creation of space to support outreach/dissemination of our work through conferences and professional development, we hope to reach more families and support the creation of programs similar to ours.

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

Starting in Kindergarten, students learn what it means to be part of a democratic community. Classroom names and rules are voted on, class constitutions are created collectively, and community norms are established early on. The school motto of Be Kind and Work Hard is modeled by every adult in the building. MHS is a school with an inclusion model, mixing children of every variety in classrooms. Through this model, empathy and understanding for differences is established. One of the major school rules is "You can't say, You can't play". A weekly community "Share" includes the entire student/teacher body singing, sharing work, and announcing weekly "Acts of Kindness" (anonymously submitted acts of kindness witnessed by children and adults throughout the week). As children grow older, their idea of community grows outside of the school walls-6th, 7th, and 8th graders participate in the School to Community Initiative (SCI), leaving school to take part in neighborhood volunteer opportunities. Multi-age classrooms also encourage children to support and help each other, both academically and socially. Older children have much younger "book buddies" and field trips often include children of vastly different age groups. Whole child focus and project-based learning are at the heart of a four-year revolving curriculum that studies three school-wide subjects every year: a science, an ancient culture and a topic of social justice through the lens of the African American experience. The founding educational philosophy is based on John Dewey's Habits of Mind.

MHS belongs to the Pilot School Network, within the Boston Public Schools district. Like every public school in the country, we are part of a major push for standardized testing, which we believe is only one way of many to assess children (and not a very effective one). Our peers are those schools that belong to the Coalition of Essential Schools. Our competitors are private and charter schools, which take children and funding from our district regularly and do not always serve the populations that we do. MHS is a beacon. We are visited each year by over 150 educators from several countries and many cities. They come to learn about our best practices and to see in person, the inspirational work done by our staff and visionary leader.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

In the fifteen years since the school's inception, MHS has graduated over 170 young people, who have gone to high school, college, and the workplace. In a study following the graduates of MHS (and two other pilot schools) by the Center for Collaborative Education in 2010, the researcher states "As the findings detail, they (the graduates) learned in multiple ways and in a range of areas, including growing into independent learners, learning academic content and skills, and developing 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and practical intelligence."
The school regularly receives visiting alums, who come back to share stories snd help out at the school. There are currently four children of alums attending the school.Statistics for our community (2011-12 school year): 40% African american, 35% Hispanic, 17% White, 7% Biracial, and 1% Asian. 30% of children receive Special Education services and 57% live under the poverty level.

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

The school is growing to include 30 new slots for three and four year-olds in the fall of 2012. The school will move to a larger building in a different neighborhood, but continue to serve the current families population. Of 30 new slots for the youngest children, 15 are designated for children with significant special needs. The new building will allow the school to host more organized visits for educators. It is hoped that we will host educational conferences and Professional Development classes for educators, as we create and define the new space. The idea is to continue to grow and learn and provide the best education for the city's neediest children. Opening our program to three and four year-olds is relatively new to the district and we hope to become a model nationwide.

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

The biggest barrier to our work is always financial. Because public schools are almost always underfunded, the school has included an External Affairs position, not only to address the larger issues of visitors, partnerships, and special programs, but also to work with the Friends of Mission Hill School, a 501-C3 non-profit, founded by a parent to assist the school with fundraising. We are currently seeking funding to help establish new early education classrooms for the three and four year-olds, create a library media center (including sorely needed school-wide technology upgrades), and to support the expansion of our Visitor Program to include conferences and education PD classes. Some of these are one-time costs and others we hope to create self-sustaining programming with.

In 1996 Deborah Meier was 65 years old and poised to retire after a long and successful career as an educator in the NYC Public Schools. An old friend from Cambridge called her, mentioning the fledgling Boston Pilot School movement and suggested that Deborah come start a school in the Mission Hill neighborhood in Roxbury, a historically under-served area for school-aged Boston children. The following week, Deborah made a visit to Mission Hill, saw a site that she deemed perfect and jumped into planning for the MHS. It seems that with Deborah, her entire professional life was a series of those "Aha!" moments. At the age of 80, Deborah Meier continues as a force to be reckoned with in public education reform. She travels, speaking around the world, blogs and twitters regularly, writes a monthly column for EdWeek, and works on educational policy. She is a truly visionary leader. The school continues her legacy as a proud model of successful public education.

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

Youth frequently feel they lack the skills necessary to make change in a meaningful and sustainable way. In particular, international school students, who have personally witnessed many global issues but often remain disconnected from the local community, feel incapable of effecting change in their environment. Formal education methodologies can intensify this feeling when they reinforce an authoritarian dynamic between students and teachers. Such a dynamic weakens students feeling of responsibility for their educational experience and encourages them to rely on the teacher to solve important issues and questions. All of this amounts to the disempowerment of youth.

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

“Inspire. Empower. Engage.” summarizes JUMP’s solution to the disempowerment of youth. First, we do this by running youth leadership and community development programs in over 20 international schools; our strongest partnerships lying in China, Thailand, and Singapore. The program empowers students to become leaders in their communities by challenging them in areas such as personal discovery, trust building, effective communication and situational leadership. Second, through our partnerships with Global Potential (GP) and Americans Promoting Study Abroad (APSA) we provide underprivileged youth with international experience and empower them to solve real-world issues. With GP we work toward the shared goal of supporting youth to become changemakers locally and globally. With APSA, our programs enable underprivileged, inner-city American youth to volunteer at migrant schools in China, directly impacting the local community.

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

Our programs consistently follow the same three steps to challenge the norm and revolutionize the traditional student-teacher dynamic to strengthen students’ connection to their communities. 1) We create opportunities for students to drive and define their personal growth. 2) We facilitate leadership through a change in perspective. In the school programs this occurs during the team-building challenges as students navigate disagreement and miscommunication. Then, when we debrief each challenge, students share their insights into community and leadership, creating an environment where their thoughts are taken seriously and they empathize and learn from their peers. In our development-focused programs, this change occurs during the service component, for example when students volunteer at a migrant school and feel they can directly impact serious issues such as education. 3) Inspired and equipped with a new mindset and skill set, these students enter their communities feeling they can become changemakers. What they exactly decide to do is their choice; they pursue the change they are passionate about achieving.

Those who traditionally would be our competitors have largely become collaborators in our vision. While The Hutong and JUMP! both provide outdoor programs, JUMP! focuses on youth empowerment, which has enabled us to build a strong collaborative partnership. The Odyssey Institute and JUMP! have similar goals, methods and programs. However, JUMP! differs in its social enterprise model and hub in China. Lastly, some international schools offer leadership programs that overlap with JUMP! but lack the facilitator structure that truly empowers students and grants them authentic responsibility. Though these sources of competition may pose challenges to JUMP’s program growth, due to our desire for collaboration they also frequently contribute to empowering youth.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Quantitatively, JUMP! programs have reached over 4,000 global youth, 2,000 international educators, and 500 disadvantaged youth worldwide and included 1,000 volunteer hours in China-based service projects. The 500% growth in program participants since 2009 shows the desirability and effectiveness of our programs in empowering youth. Qualitatively, JUMP! program participants have gone on to run Global Issues Network and Round Square conferences as well as start initiatives such as The Pro-Farmer Project at the Western Academy of Beijing or Art for Leadership at the New International School Thailand. Furthermore, APSA scholars work on a China Tomorrow Project through which they share their experience to engage their local communities. These initiatives demonstrate JUMP’s impact in supporting youth in becoming changemakers.

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

In addition to growing our partnership base we hope to expand our impact in three primary ways. First, we plan on creating an alumni network so past program participants can collaborate locally and internationally to create initiatives and address serious issues. Second, we plan on expanding beyond international schools to offer JUMP! programs to local public school students in China. Third, we will expand the existing JUMP!-Global Potential model for Haitian Youth Leadership Conferences to underprivileged youth in China, South Africa, Thailand and Australia.

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

The barriers to JUMP’s continued success and growth lie in recruiting and maintaining a team that can fill the growing demand for our programs at a very high quality. Due to the high commitment required of JUMP! staff and JUMP's inability to cover the costs of decent wages and other benefits, our staff cannot commit to more than 2 years of working at JUMP! Therefore, our greatest barrier is lack of access to patient capital to allow JUMP to acquire and retain a well-trained and committed team. To start addressing these challenges we have begun fundraising with the aim of increasing staff wages and benefits.

In 2006, five education professionals began discussing their futures around a conference table in Capetown. They shared a passion for youth development, experiential education, and social-innovation and a desire to help youth who struggle with traditional models of schooling or extra-curricular activities. They realized that they could merge their backgrounds in leadership training, outdoor education, and adventure travel to create unique experiences for youth that would provide a space to pursue personal discovery and address real-world issues through collaborative learning. With the structure and support of this outlet, students could identify and map out steps towards achieving their goals as well as gain the tools to become changemakers in their local and global communities. Six months later the Western Academy of Beijing witnessed the first JUMP! program.

Our partnerships fall into two types: our service-based partnerships with international schools and our partnerships with other youth-focused organizations. Our global network of international schools constitutes our main source of revenue. The organizations we partner with such as Global Potential and Americans Promoting Study Abroad share our goals of empowering youth and fostering global citizens.

Despite being extremely committed and passionate, our current full-time staff cannot keep up with the demand for our programs. An increased staff would enable JUMP! to fill the demand for our programs. The ability to better compensate this team would ensure more sustainable growth as staff could commit long-term. Since many past program participants wish to volunteer and intern additional staff are needed to mentor them.

Ideia (você está para lançar)

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

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

Children in Ntenyo Primary School (755 students), Rwanda and Buford Middle School (649 students), Charlottesville, Virginia are socially excluded. Their schools lack basic resources for learning, they have a hard time seeing where they fit in the world, and relating to those from other backgrounds since they do not have the opportunity to interact with people from different walks of life. It is hard to dream big when the world seems so constrained; hard to feel hope when surrounded by so much despair; and hard to think creatively about how children can collaboratively solve the problems they see in their world.

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

We will connect students in Ntenyo, Rwanda and Charlottesville, VA via the internet, to talk, share stories, and play online games designed to build relationships and empathy. The exchange will foster mutual understanding, respect and empathy, as well as show how we are all connected in a global web. We will also connect these young students to university students at the Batten School of Leadership & Public Policy at the University of Virginia (UVA), for additional learning opportunities. We will draw on resources from the university’s psychology department where researchers use computer-based empathy tools; and the Mindfulness Center, which has developed online mindfulness meditation programs to reduce stress and promote self awareness. We will start small with two classrooms in Ntenyo and two in Charlottesville, growing it into many laptops in Rwanda and multiple linkages in the US.

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

There will be three components of the connection, which will grow, in time, to a broader web. 1. Children in Ntenyo, Rwanda will talk with children in Charlottesville, Virginia. They will share stories and play online games building cooperation and friendships. This will allow them to improve their English and expand their experiences. In addition, connecting to the Internet will increase their access to information by orders of magnitude. 2. Children in low-income schools in Charlottesville, VA will talk with children in Ntenyo, Rwanda. While thousands of children are relatively disadvantaged in Charlottesville Virginia, defined by the national poverty line, their access to resources is significantly higher than students in Rwanda. However, drop out rates are high (49% for African-American students). In Rwanda, hundreds of children arrive at Ntenyo Primary School every day, having walked miles, sometimes with no shoes, often without a meal, and suffering from a range of health ailments. Providing students in Charlottesville with this reference point should help them develop empathy for our far-away neighbors, recognize their own *relative* wealth and encourage them to take advantage of the resources at their disposal. 3. Children in both schools – in Charlottesville and Ntenyo will be connected to students at the University of Virginia. This will provide children in both schools access to additional tutoring and cutting edge developments in empathy and mindfulness curriculum. The university students develop a deeper understanding of poverty and empathy.

No other organizations are working in the area of rural Rwanda where the Ntenyo Primary School is situated, and no organization in Charlottesville, VA is seeking to connect low-income children with students in other countries. So there are no direct competitors. Peer organizations exist that have curriculum which we will use during the exchanges; we are in touch with the Directors of Global Grassroots, an NGO teaching consciousness to girls in Rwanda; The UVA Contemplative Center, which is holding a conference and gathering materials on teaching meditation and self awareness in K-12 education; and the UVA Mindfulness Center, which has online mindfulness tools.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Sanejo began working with Ntenyo Primary School 2 years ago when it was at risk of closing because of poor infrastructure and low graduations rates. Over the last two years we have built 5 new classrooms with the help of the Ntenyo community, landscaped the school grounds and installed two water tanks to ensure that the children have fresh drinking water throughout the school day. In 2011, the school was ranked 2/12 on the Sector level and 4/69 on the District level. During this time, we have brought in volunteers from different countries to expose the children to different cultures. This cross-cultural interaction has peaked the students' interest and they are constantly writing letters for the volunteers to take to children in their home countries. With this project, we aim to take their eagerness for pen pals one step further and connect them with entire classrooms in the US through virtual meetings, lessons and games.

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

In the next 1-3 years we aim to complete the renovation of the Ntenyo Primary School and adding enough classrooms to expand to include a Secondary School, new latrines, and an improved playing field. Electricity is slated to come to the school this year but we will also add solar panels for fluctuations in power. We will have a fully functioning computer lab dedicated to cross-cultural interaction over the internet with other schools in the United States (and ultimately, elsewhere). Our aim is to impact both students in Rwanda and the US by exposing them to people and cultures of which they would otherwise not have knowledge. By exposing them to new experiences and instilling empathy, our goal is to impact how they think about the world and encourage them to dream big and work together.

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

The Ntenyo & Charlottesville communities are 100% behind this project, however, there are logistical issues that need to be taken into account in Rwanda: 1. We need to raise $6,000 for the 300 meters of fiber-optic cable and installation. 2. The school does not yet have electricity, but electrical poles are in the vicinity and the government has promised that it will be installed by the end of the year. If it is not installed on time, we have contacts with a solar company and a rice-husk gasification generator company (rice is now being cultivated in the area). To ensure that national grid electricity will be installed as soon as possible, we have remained in constant contact with the local government. With approximately $2,500, we have been guaranteed that electricity will be installed.

During the summer of 2010, Sanejo worked with the oldest students at Nteyno Primary School (P6) to create a mural about the dreams for their future. Initially the students were reserved in their dreaming, thinking only about goals that they knew were tangible for them. Together with the teachers, we encouraged the kids to start thinking bigger and once they realized that they had the power to control their future, there was no stopping them! "I want to be a doctor!", "I want to go to university!" reads the Dream Wall. Standing in the schoolyard the wall continues to be a daily reminder for the students and community members of what is possible if you work hard. The inspiration derived from the wall has inspired the community and Sanejo board members to think bigger and see how we can connect the students to the wider world before they leave school. Our goal is to further encourage our Rwandan and US students to work hard and view themselves a part of a wider, global community.

IT specialists are key to carrying out this initiative, but they are also very much in demand, and as a result are fairly costly, if Changemakers Fellows have advice about securing pro-bono IT support, that would be very helpful. In addition, though we have a number of sources for developing empathy-promoting curriculum, additional advice in this area would be very welcomed.

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

Too many students are bullied everyday online and at school. Too many students participate in bullying or stand idly by and do nothing. Too many students die as a result of being bullied to the point of mental anguish and exhaustion. I can't ignore the statistics, and I can't ignore the innocent lives lost. Something needs to be done. Something can be done, and it all begins with one person.

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

I teach science, which involves real-world problem solving. Students are encouraged to find real solutions to problems. Most of my students were not real-world problem solvers yet. Most of them are so wrapped up with their own lives that they are not used to thinking about others. I understand where they are coming from. Most of the students at my school are at or below the poverty line, but I wanted to create a learning environment in which they begin to think about the world in a different way. I wanted them to realize they could make a real difference in their own lives and in the process, someone else’s. I began speaking out about bullying. Every Friday, I teach a lesson on bullying and have a discussion about the impacts bullying has on the students’ lives. I call these discussions, “Conversations for Change”. I teach students about empathy, tolerance, citizenship, kindness, and compassion.

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

My students look forward to our “Conversations for Change” because they can express their concerns. I help them come up with solutions to these concerns while also have them think about these solutions for themselves. During one conversation, I asked a student about a website, and her explanation ended up turning into a heart-warming speech about the issues of bullying and standing up against it. Afterwards, this student said she would like to speak to the entire school so everyone can hear her words. At first, the principal didn’t seem very supportive about this idea, so I began encouraging my students to unite together to create some ways they could begin to change their school. After some students approached the assistant principal with some ideas, I spoke to her and asked if my students could create an anti-bullying program that could be kicked off with this one student speaking to the school. I received permission with enthusiasm, so things began to spread fast. We have set up a day for this student to speak to the entire school. Another student created a survey to collect statistics about the bullying that occurs at our school. The student who will be giving a speak will announce the local statistics as a way to help students understand that bullying does happen, and she is going to help students understand what they can do to stop it. I began to get so many requests to help create and join in on the anti-bullying program that I set up student committees to be in charge of specific activities. We are calling this new anti-bullying program “Cougars for Change”.

My peers and those who are for this change include other teachers, students, and parents. My main support are my students. I am encouraging administrators, teachers, and parents to get involved. My hope is to create a district-wide program where we can discuss student concerns and issues, promote a supportive environment, and inspire a change in students. While there are others who may be against bullying, I am actively trying to implement change in a tangible way. My competitors are those in the community or school who feel that bullying is simply a rite of passage to growing up. The most difficult challenge I will face is convincing people that this is something worth time, effort, energy, and resources. From what I’ve seen so far, everyone I have approached has been very supportive.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

I have witness amazing results from what my students have already accomplished. I see the enthusiasm they possess as they tell their family and friends about our new program. Students from all different social groups work together, they give each other positive and encouraging words, and they find other ways to deal with problems or disagreements instead of fighting or name-calling. In my own classes, I have less discipline issues to deal with because students have gained more respect for me and their classmates. The classroom has become a place for them to learn because they feel safe. My students have inspired the entire school to work together to create a safe learning environment for all students. I was even amazed at how their test scores increased without any extra effort. I believe that if students feel safe at school, they can learn far more than any other teaching method out there.

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

I would like other teachers and other schools to see the results of how implementing an anti-bullying program can help all those involved in education. The anti-bullying program needs to come from students and be student-led in order to get the required results though. And I would like the other schools in this district to implement the same atmosphere of positive change and kindness. I would also like to see my students inspire other schools and districts around the state and country, so that they too can discover that something as small as kindness can have such a remarkable and everlasting change. This type of program helps students understand how much power they really possess. And that when you use it for good, it has the potential to make such a positive change to everyone.

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

Obstacles that a program like this might face would come from people in power who might not believe that it could produce substantial enough change to the educational environment. Luckily, I have support from administrators in my school, but I do worry about receiving support from the school’s district. The school is there to serve students and parents in the community. If students work together, and if they can get their parents to be supportive, then programs like this will be very successful. Administrators and school districts need to be supportive of parents and students since that is what makes a school successful. I have received support from parents, students, administrators, and teachers. Any obstacles that a program like this will face are nothing our students can’t overcome.

Early on in the school year, I had one student leave the school because she was being bullied. A few months later, I had another student interview me for an anti-bullying story she was writing for the school’s news blog. One question was, “What do you do when you see bullying happen?”. I answered her question, but it made me realize that I wasn’t doing enough as a teacher to stop or prevent bullying. After hearing this student’s story and how much she has had to endure throughout her young life, I felt I needed to step up and do something that would matter. After second semester started, I began to talk about bullying issues and how they can affect people in such a negative way. I talked about what students could do to create change, and how they could change their own environment. When this same student stood up and talked to her peers during one of our conversations, I realized that it was the students that needed to step up and create change.

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

Fact: There are 68 million primary school aged children who are out of school.

Due to the dual crisis in education, in terms of access and quality, millions of children miss out on the ‘golden years’, when their ability to learn is at its peak. Short-term, these children fall into the same cycle as their parents and are unable to impact their future. Long-term, lack of education steals the promise of social and economic development, of innovation and personal growth. The need and goal for global education then should be to provide basic education and teach students about the impact of their personal choices. By using education to develop teamwork, grow empathy and instill the creative-belief to lead, youth can be given the chance to understand, change and grow.

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

The Global Team seeks to address both the quality of and access to education by combining primary education with the sport of soccer. By leveraging the sport of soccer, this model empowers youth to better understand and appreciate their world by instilling a curiosity to learn, a desire to explore and the courage to make a positive difference. Through self-guided learning, the Global Team engages players in and out of the classroom by matching each classroom topic to the weekly soccer topic. Focusing on respect towards others and self, Global Team players are surrounded by engaging and creative learning environments which empower them to be the change they wish to see in themselves, their community and the world.

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

The Global Team matches educational themes to soccer, both in the classroom and on the field. Beginning with mentor training and focusing on self-guided discovery, community leaders are taught how to develop creative learning environments to support the Global Team curriculum and goals. The Educational Book, Soccer Workbook and Trainer Handbook curriculum set provides bi-weekly classroom and soccer sessions lasting 10 weeks per theme, culminating in the players hosting a community day to initiate desired changes and provide community education.
Example Session: •Educational Topic: The Animal Kingdom Activity: players learn about the uniqueness of animals to camouflage themselves by playing an adapted version of Hide-and-Seek •Soccer Skill: Developing Placement/Power in Sticking the Ball Worksheet: player

Example Session:
•Educational Topic: The Animal Kingdom
Activity: players learn about the uniqueness of animals to camouflage themselves by playing an adapted version of Hide-and-Seek
•Soccer Skill: Developing Placement/Power in Sticking the Ball
Worksheet: players define each role on the field and why their importance to the team
•Integrated Theme: When striking the ball, you need to understand how far the ball needs to go and where the receiving player’s going. Understanding these differences will make you a better player; as will understanding the differences of each animal class. Just like there are different soccer positions and techniques, there are different animal classes, by appreciating these differences, you will be a teammember.

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

Our peers and competitors are those programs who currently use soccer to promote life skills and healthy lifestyles like Right to Play and Grassroots Soccer. However, what makes the Global Team innovative is that we move beyond these skills to pair soccer with primary educational themes like math, reading and earth sciences. Instead of challenges posed, these organizations have helped advance public recognition of the power of sport, which is allowing the Global Team to move the field forward. The only challenge then is integrating the Global Team program into organizations currently using soccer and HIV/AIDS.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

Starting in early 2012, the Global Team will begin to implement our environment curriculum in partnership with GoalsHaiti, with players finishing the season with greater awareness of their impact on the environment and their ability to create positive change, along with a strong understanding of the Earth. By using the sport of soccer as well as discussion and explorative activities, these players will gain an awareness of their actions (while developing skills like conflict resolution, leadership and teamwork) to be successful contributors to their community and their world. Concluding the season, players will host a community day to provide solutions and education to their community. GoalsHaiti currently serves 500 youth in Leogane, Haiti, indirectly affecting an additional 3,500 community members.

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

We project that our impact will grow tremendously in the coming years. Currently, we are progressing towards implementing our curriculum in additional communities within Haiti, expanding to include communities in Kenya within the next year. Our partners, who work in four to five communities per county, will allow the Global Team to empower local leaders, while reaching approximately 100-200 youth per community. Overall, we estimate that within the next 18 months we will expand our reach from 500 to 2000 - 4000 youth, with endless future possibilities as we continue to develop partnerships in communities around the world. Due to the universal love of the sport and the global right to education, our model has unlimited growth constrained only by resource capacity.

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

The biggest barrier to the success of our program is the need for additional funding to grow our leadership team. Currently, our team comprises of our Founder: Heather Turney, who develops curriculums/materials while managing partnership development, fund raising and social media outreach in addition to overseeing our volunteer Editor, Graphic Designer and Technical Advisor. As we continue to develop partnerships and funding opportunities, the goal is to grow this role into a full-time Executive Director position in the next 6 months and expand our volunteer staff. By completing this goal, the Global Team will be better positioned to grow impact. This will be achieved through additional funding sources and the finalization of partnerships.

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]

Having coached youth soccer, our Founder has always been tuned into the power of soccer to engage youth. After spending a year in South Korea, where students were often left unengaged, exhibiting a lack of creativity due to a model of rote memorization, she did something unthinkable – took the students to the gym during math class. By using games and activities, the kids not only were more excited to learn, but they learned quicker and were better ‘teammates’ to their fellow students. After starting an after-school soccer program, she began to integrate basic educational topics onto the field and “Aha”, the seed which developed into Global Team was planted. From there it has developed into our mission statement and goals for universal education through soccer.

Há quanto tempo está em funcionamento?

Em execução por mais de 5 anos

Qual(is) item(ns) abaixo descreve(m) melhor a(s) barreira(s) que sua inovação soluciona? Escolha até dois itens.

Transparência, Equidade.

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

O aumento da taxa de incidência de HIV (infecção pelo vírus de imunodeficiência adquirida) e DSTs entre os jovens LGBTs.

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

O GPH, através do Projeto Purpurina, específico para jovens, tem comprovado a crença de pesquisadores na íntima relação existente entre "a saúde psicológica, a homofobia e o risco das DSTs e HIV". No projeto, os jovens se sentem seguros e confiantes para falar entre si sobre o que pensam e defendem ou rejeitam, com sinceridade. Assim, torna-se evidente que os jovens LGBTs deixam de usar o preservativo por uma "pulsão de morte" (inconsciênte), resultante da rejeição doméstica, escolar e social que sofrem. Desse modo, melhorar a baixa autoestima e a depressão, sentindo-se acolhidos e respeitados como são, é um caminho possível e eficaz para ajudar a conter a explosão juvenil do HIV. A tendência inconsciente desses jovens de correr riscos concretiza-se com vários tipos de ações e expressa-se através de várias crenças, que vem sendo pesquisadas no Projeto Purpurina, um trabalho baseado no "protagonismo juvenil monitorado".

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

Um exemplo recorrente no Projeto Purpurina é o de jovens LGBTs que tentam o suicídio. Esses jovens chegam ao projeto deprimidos e com autoestima muito baixa. Lá encontram seus iguais, jovens que passam por dificuldades semelhantes, fazem amigos, têm a oportunidade de conversar entre iguais sobre vários aspectos de suas vidas, adquirem conhecimento sobre assuntos importantes para a comunidade LGBT, incluindo informações sobre prevenção de DSTs e HIV. Após frequentarem os encontros do projeto (quinzenais), eles aumentam a responsabilidade de cooperação e divisão do trabalho e adquirem esperança de um futuro de sucesso profissional e privado, como qualquer jovem da idade deles. Os resultados desse processo são: aumento da autoestima; aproximação dos familiares, aumento da capacidade de socialização e troca; aumento da capacidade de lidar com a competição e da capacidade de enfrentar adversidades; aumento da segurança e da motivação por verem um trabalho bem feito valorizado; aumento da segurança e do cuidado consigo mesmo. Todos esses efeitos contribuem para que o jovem não se exponha a situações de risco e de contágio por DSTs e infecção por HIV.

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?

Na verdade, não há nenhum projeto que trabalhe com jovens LGBTs da mesma maneira que o Projeto Purpurina. Há projetos que trabalham com o incentivo do uso de preservativo e/ou disponibilizam os exames de HIV, ou ainda levantam os dados numéricos da epidemia. Entretanto, esses projetos não podem ser considerados pares ou concorrentes do Purpurina, que trabalha complementarmente a eles, como por exemplo com os projetos do CRT (Centro de Referência e Treinamento DST/Aids, da secretaria de Estado da Saúde - SP).

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

Como coordenadora do GPH (Grupo de Pais de Homossexuais, ONG que trabalha para aproximar pais de seus filhos LGBTs), comecei a receber centenas de mensagens e telefonemas de jovens por mês pedindo ajuda. Esses pedidos eram dos mais variados tipos: jovens que haviam sido expulsos de casa e estavam na rua, jovens que haviam sido ameaçados na escola, jovens que estavam em difícil processo de autoaceitação, etc. Percebendo que essa população era muito carente de atenção e acolhimento, principalmente no que toca à elevação de sua autoestima, iniciamos o Projeto Purpurina. Assim, nos encontros quinzenais, o projeto colabora direta e indiretamente para a educação, inclusive sexual, e para o fortalecimento e promoção dos direitos humandos dos jovens inseridos dentro de grupos minoritários, como são os jovens LGBTs.

Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.

Nossa meta é aumentar a autoestima dos jovens LGBTs para que eles sejam agentes de mudança, promovendo a prevenção de DSTs/Aids e tendo a possibilidade de ser felizes, tornando-se cidadãos plenos.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

O impacto se revela não somente pelo número de jovens já atendidos, nem pelo número cada vez maior de frequentadores dos encontros, mas, principalmente, pelo projeto ter se tornado uma referência internacional na luta contra essa nova "onda" de infecção pelo HIV. No segundo semestre de 2011, o Instituto de Psicologia da USP, na figura de nossa parceira, Dra. Vera Paiva, nos encaminhou pesquisadoras chinesas da Fundação Ford de Pequim e um pesquisador americano da Universidade de Chicago, que irão desenvolver estudos baseados na experiência brasileira do Projeto Purpurina.

Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?

O Projeto Purpurina já está se expandindo para outras cidades brasileiras, como Curitiba, Florianópolis e São Luís (MA). Nossa expectaviva é a de que, nos próximos cinco anos, tenhamos encontros quinzenais em várias cidades brasileiras, nos moldes do projeto desenvolvido em São Paulo.

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

A única barreira que poderia impedir o prosseguimento do projeto seria a falta de verbas, como aconteceu em 2011. Tentamos superar a dificuldade recorrendo à contribuições dos pais que fazem parte do GPH e, ao mesmo tempo, tentando angariar recursos públicos, sem sucesso.

As inscrições vencedoras apresentam um plano sólido sobre como vão alcançar e acompanhar o crescimento do projeto. Identifique as metas de seis meses para aumentar seu impacto.

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

As parcerias são importantíssimas e imprescindíveis para o sucesso do projeto. Atualmente, temos parcerias com as secretarias estaduais da Saúde e da Justiça e com a prefeitura do Município de São Paulo.

Atualmente você planeja atender outros locais, mercados e populações específicas com sua inovação? Se sim, onde e por quê?

Como já comentado, o projeto está se expandindo para Curitiba, Florianópolis e São Luís do MA e esperamos que possa atender ainda outras cidades no futuro.

Que tipo de ambiente operacional e fatores da organização interna ajudarão o projeto a ser bem sucedido?

O protagonismo juvenil monitorado, realmente, foi o recurso que garantiu o sucesso desse empreendimento. Um fator operacional que ajudaria em muito a continuação do trabalho seria termos um espaço próprio.

Fale mais sobre as necessidades ou ofertas que você selecionou anteriormente e/ou sugira categorias de apoio que não foram listadas

A grande necessidade dos jovens LGBTs atualmente é uma "casa de passagem" para os jovens que são expulsos de casa, que atenda as especificidades desse público enquanto o GPH trabalha com a família.

I certainly do - but pleeeeeeease don't penalize me for being 41. I've been running an online-administrated global volunteering charity since 2006, operating in Kenya and various other places around the world and needed an income so wanted to help my own community as well those in developing countries. I wanted to help the kids struggling at home, in the classroom, getting thrown out of school and wanted to set up a new fun, innovative form of education that would empower young people to succeed.

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

We will provide innovative solutions to re-engage disadvantaged disillusioned youth back into education and training. Using a new legal format of a Community Interest Company I can empower yongsterss to become socially responsible and assist others to succeed as well as themselves, ultimately reducing the billions in crime-related economic costs, and social costs.

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

Working on site with a brand new specialist BESD* school KO2 will offer an alternative route to education and employment for students with additional learning needs, students at risk of exclusion from mainstream education, kinesthetic learners, or those already Not in Education Employment or Training (NEET). We provide a higher level of care for 'at risk' young people, dealing with behavioural issues, confidence issues and helping our students to achieve qualifications with the aim of re-integration back into mainstream education.
* behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
KO2 uses fun, exciting technology alongside zero-emission electric dirtbikes and practical training.

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

The emergence of ‘social networking’ has revolutionized young peoples relationships with computers; young people’s chosen method of communication, aside from mobile phones. KO2 capitalizes on this by facilitating learning through a familiar, preferred medium of communication. As a Youth Work tool the software encourages disclosure of information that young people may otherwise be reluctant or unable to communicate face to face. Its use can show emotional and mental development essential to our young people, catering for dyslexia and other learning difficulties and allowing individuals to communicate with ease.

Youngsters arrive with us each morning and log-in to the system. Here they'll fill out a section called My Life which begins by asking them straight forward questions like "How are you feeling today" - they'll be clicking answer boxes like "I'm ok", "I'm tired" etc. This uploads to an overall behaviour management system, linked with attendance, monitoring and a full PQASSO quality system to provide evidence of the impact and value of our work. Briefing then takes place in the open plan reception area. Activities are divided between workshops on bike maintenance, workshops on basic electrical engineering, dirt track time, lunch and the overarching Life Routes scheme which accredits the youngsters via 3 key skills:
Working with others
Improving own learning and performance
Problem solving

We work from the Life Routes’ practical resources - both online and offline - and take an innovative flexible approach designed around the individual group. Accreditation is based on the Life Routes scheme. Life skills are particularly important for vulnerable young people with behavioural or emotional difficulties, especially those who may have experienced traumatic life events and are less resilient with fewer coping strategies.
We have a quiet room available for any down-time or one-to-one work with specialist counselors who work with us on a voluntary basis.

At the end of each session students upload a journal of their activities. The website software is extremely user-friendly, meaning negligible training required. All learning evidence is then accessed by the accreditors with full secure ePortal access to all stakeholders.

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?

We currently have no direct competition in the area. There is an urban site 40 minutes away offering motorbike lessons in Leeds and a school using dirtbikes privately to re-engage students but no one is using electric dirtbikes combined with developmental components. Using electric dirtbikes alone provides career opportunities for each student, in electrical engineering, green transport and environmental solutions. Promoting the aims of The Big Society, giving our community more power to help others and themselves, to develop social enterprise and prove that support saves money and works better than the Criminal Justice System and gives us the social edge to demand corporate investment, as well as selling core activities to the struggling youth services.

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

We are in startup but plan on accessing 40 students per week from schools and developing their self-confidence, bringing them round to learning again and assisting them in gaining accreditation. We are also working with the Job Centre to provide volunteering and possible apprenticeships through the UK govt Youth Contract, as well as supported by the Police, Fire Service and Army.
There is a wealth of data evidencing the impact of early intervention and targeted support and the economic value it brings. Reports estimated that a young person in the criminal justice system costs the taxpayer over £200,000 by the age of 16, but one who is given support costs less than £50,000. [‘Tired of Hanging Around’ Audit commission 2009.] That means we can reduce anti-social behaviour costs by 75%.

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

Over capacity will initially be a problem as we can only start with 5 staff, and 8 bikes, meaning a max of 40 young people a week. We also will have a significant amount of training to do for each young person joining us from the Job Centre. We want to be as inclusive as possible but CRB checks and Child Protection mean extensive screening must take place which, while important, can also deter those who need the services from joining us.

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

We are promoting the use of green technology and teaching the younger generation about zero-emission technology. Involving youth makes a great impact on strengthening democracy. Investment in youth engagement can bring benefits to councils, local areas and young people. Volunteering also plays a significant role in developing the self-confidence and skills of young people and KO2 intends to - in fact needs to - incorporate volunteering to operate efficiently. Youngsters and adults immediately improve their own employability on realising they can influence decision making, take some control and improve their local situation, while gaining the skills required for work and adult life.
Our work is essential in re-engaging young people at risk of becoming NEET (Not in education, employment or training) and supporting them back into learning and training. The average individual lifetime public finance cost of a NEET young person is estimated as £56,300, which equates to almost £12 billion across all NEETs. [NYCC CYPP 2008-11]
Physical & ’hands on’ activities have been proved (through many studies/reports) to keep boys more engaged, concentrated and focused. Research into the role of sport and leisure activities in helping prevent anti-social behaviour concludes that long-term impact would only be achieved by combining these activities with ‘developmental components’ supporting young people to change their behaviour.

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

I have been running a volunteering charity since 2006, administrated purely online, working in Kenya and the Brazilian Amazon and the ingenuity of resource-poor individuals in low-income, impoverished areas is incredible. I've personally become so much more innovative due to the need to become resourceful, efficient and effective. My work in developing countries will be introduced to each of the young people we'll be working with in KO2 as development education is key to understanding perspective. Empowerment to control your own future, to have a stake in your own future is key to development. Enabling others to help themselves via sustainable development WILL enable Africa and other areas to skip many of the pitfalls developed countries have fallen into eg industrial revolution. Mobile internet and green energy are just a couple of the advantages that developing countries have as well as a heightened understanding of resourcefulness.

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

All my work has been in Kenya since 2006 - it will be good to understand how their neighbours live though there will of course be similarities. I look forward to seeing the gorillas!

Crescimento (seu piloto está em andamento e começa a se expandir)

Há quanto tempo seu projeto está em atividade?

Em execução entre 1 e 5 anos

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

The starting point of our project was the need to teach children cross cultural skills. We live in an area with a high concentration of people originally from India. The school experience for children was characterized by tension and bad feelings between children and between parents and schools. Administrators of the town’s school district, which consists of four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school, initiated a series of meetings between parents and teachers to discuss the problem. Teachers and parents wanted to teach children about India as a means to explore another culture but there were no lessons to be found. The Teach India Project exists to fill this need for lessons for grades K-12, not only in our town but by using the internet, around the globe.

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

A group of parents volunteered with the school district over the course of two years to develop Teaching Kits for Kindergarten to 5th grade. These Teaching Kits were about how cultures are interconnected. This group of parents went on to incorporate the Teach India Project in 2007, using the things they had learned while working with the schools and teachers.

Our solution is to prepare ready to use lessons for grades K-12: we add pre-screened supporting interactive web-based resources, books and activities; package them into lesson units, connect them to curriculum standards and distribute them for free through the internet on our website www.teachindiaproject.org

We publish an online Newsletter through which we tell subscribers about lessons on our website. Our subscribers include teachers and parents from over 40 countries. Last year we gave a Professional Development Award to support teachers’ work-study tour to further their understanding of another culture.

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

Teach India Project is a virtual organization and a large part of our work is online and internet based. We track the impact of our activities through website metrics, the number of websites that cite us as a resource and anecdotal evidence and comments that users of our website and Newsletter send us.

The following are some recent website metrics and indicators of the impact of our work. For example, in January 2012, on average, every day 300 unique people visited our website. Visitors to the website downloaded more than 5000 ‘pdf’ documents from the website and some of these documents had ten or more pages. There are more than 850 subscribers to our Newsletter. These subscribers are parents and teachers and they are in more than 40 countries.

We are listed as a resource on several university websites such as the University of Wisconsin – Madison, University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia; as a resource on websites of several school district; as a resource on the websites of public television networks in two States.

These are some comments and feedback offered by teachers: “I'm a visitor and fan of your family stories page. I made use of your resources for this year's summer school curriculum.” (August 2011)
“Thank you very much for this helpful tip. This is worth a million dollar. Thank you very much once again.” Educator from a school in a tribal district in Nagaland, India (May 2011)
"I found your wonderful website and wanted to say thank you!" (October 2010)
“I am so happy I found your site” (February 2011)

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

We have two local competitors and peers: Both are non-profits like us. One is well established with an expensive subscription based business model. Recently they began offering lessons about India. They have established relationships with local school districts, and experience with content about China. The other organization has religious based lessons about India. Our focus is India, the context is secular, and our materials are free.

To identify our online competitors we examined the online offerings of 77 providers of lessons for global studies in K-12 classrooms and found that lessons about India are scarce. We have potential for growth.

Our local competitors challenge us as we all appeal to the same people and organizations for donations, funding or professional work.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

We are offering a practical solution to the problem of a lack of cross cultural lessons for children. Our lessons feature India and are for school aged children. Having developed a solution we see a steady increase in the use of the materials on our website. For example, in January 2012, on average, 300 people visited the website every day. They read things and downloaded more than 5000 files many of which had ten or more pages. There were upwards of 80,000 hits on the website.
We are listed as a resource for area studies and for teachers on several university websites such as the University of Wisconsin – Madison, University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia, and as a resource on several school district websites.
Our educational Newsletter has more than 850 subscribers in over 40 countries. About half of the subscribers are teachers. We receive appreciative email and feedback from website visitors and subscribers rarely unsubscribe from our online Newsletter.

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

The Teach India Project would increase its impact by increasing the number of users of the website – the number of visitors and what they do when they are on the website. Increased impact through increase in the number of teachers (both in-school and at-home) visiting the website and engaging with ‘action oriented’ content – so content is viewed longer, content is downloaded, and the Newsletter is read by more users. We would also want to engage with teachers more directly through professional development programs of different kinds.

We plan to change the business model for the Teach India Project. We hope to offer a searchable database of teaching resources to paying subscribers such as schools. They could also obtain Teaching Kits and other printed materials from us.

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

Lack of funding, technology and compelling content would hinder our success.

Funding: The solution is to find people to share the mission. We need to grow and strengthen the Board. We need to draft a viable business plan.

Technology planning: Our website was developed by volunteers with no formal training in software programming. We need to hire or be guided by technology experts to create a website that supports all the features required by paying subscribers. We are looking to perhaps partner with a college to present this website as a training opportunity.

Compelling content: Content has to be relevant to teachers and parents. We are working with a curriculum expert to review the lessons on our website, and their alignment with curriculum standards.

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]

In 2005 I started a study group for 5 to 7 year old children from five families. Local Indian cultural schools had a narrow religious focus and we wanted something different for our children. Around the same time administrators of the town’s school district of four elementary, one middle school and one high school, initiated a series of meetings between parents and teachers to discuss sharp ethnic and racial divides in the student body.

I met teachers and curriculum developers from my school district who wanted to include India in their Global Studies program to address sharp ethnic and racial divides in the student body. Both the educators and I had the same problem: a conspicuous absence of curriculum about India for cross cultural understandings. I decided to address the issue by creating curriculum resources and making them widely available. The internet offered a low cost option to do this. In March 2007 I incorporated the Teach India Project and started the website.

Currently we do not have any partnerships in place.
These are potential partnerships that we have outlined:
For teacher travel we hope to partner with a travel and tour operator in India who has had much success in guiding collge aged students from the US to India for special interest tours.
For testing curriculum we hope to partner with two local school districts in Massachusetts so that teachers might use our lessons and kits and provide feedback on the same.
We will also partner with local community groups to increase outreach to parents who are our other group of users.

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

We need to hire a staff person to coordinate support activities. Other than that we need people skilled in fundraising, online marketing, information technology and website development, eLearning and curriculum experts. Some of these can be volunteers and we can probably hire contractors for other more technical software programming work. For guidance we need experienced business people who can assist with strategic planning to join the Board. We will need legal and fiscal advice as well. We will continue to rely on volunteers to contribute their time and efforts as they do currently.

At the Teach India Project we are just past the ‘proof of concept’ stage and are convinced that we have a solution that is relevant. We need to figure out how to scale-up – to create a viable organization and we need to find people who will help us do this. Given the nature of our organization and our work we need the help of people who are familiar with the internet and the non-profit worlds.

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?

26 year old teacher/farmer/social-entrepreneur.

Having completed a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics I joined the highly competitive graduate scheme Teach First and was dropped right in at the deep end, teaching in a challenging East London school - hands down the best/hardest/most-stressful/rewarding thing I've ever done. Completing the two year programme I took a job on a farm that works with young people at risk of social exclusion, getting them out of their environments down to Wiltshire for some intensive farming, family and therapy - the outcomes where incredible. Inspired by the difference social enterprise can have, I came back to London to set up my own one, The Brilliant Club. I wanted to address my single biggest frustration from my time in the classroom and widen access to top universities for children from low income backgrounds. The UK has one of the lowest rates of social mobility and university access is a significant contributing factor to this. So with the simple, scalable and sustainable model of recruiting and placing PhD students in schools serving low participation communities to deliver university-style teaching to high performing pupils I am now working hard to achieve our mission of an education system in which young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are proportionately represented at highly selective universities.

That's me.

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

We aim to break the link between parental income and university access forever.

1 in 2 privately educated children will secure a place at one of the UK's 30 most selective universities compared to 1 in 5 children from non-selective state schools. Only 1 in 50 children eligible for free school meals will achieve the same feat.

We believe these statistics to be unfair, unjust and representative of an education system that is arguably defective. The UK has one of the lowest levels of social mobility in Europe, therefore widening access to university for disadvantaged young people is a matter of justice and an economic imperative.

Our vision is an education system in which young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are proportionately represented at highly selective universities.

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

In order to achieve this vision we offer a simple, scalable and sustainable idea that is already having demonstrable success; we recruit, train and place PhD students to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of high performing pupils attending schools that serve low participation communities. This provides pupils with on-going support that has a core focus on developing skills and raising attainment, and is designed to translate academic potential into places at the very best universities. As well as the opportunity to take part in tailored programmes at each Key Stage, The Brilliant Club also provides a programme of age-appropriate information, advice and guidance that helps pupils to make informed choices about university. We also offer support with the UCAS application process, and raise aspirations through trips to highly selective universities.

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

PROGRAMMES: Our programmes emulate teaching and learning at highly selective universities. PhD students deliver university-style tutorials to small groups of high performing pupils, developing critical thinking and communication skills. Between the tutorials, pupils undertake reading and writing assignments that develop effective research skills and academic writing skills, and promote independent learning. The programme starts with a launch trip where pupils are introduced to their tutor and then take part in a carousel of learning activities. For the next four weeks the tutor spends one day a week in school, delivering back-to-back seventy minute tutorials to groups of no more than six pupils. Building on the work that they do in tutorials, pupils work independently to produce a 2500 word extended essay with an original argument.

MODEL: We plan to connect schools and universities through a deep, embedded partnership structure that sees ‘Partner Schools’ commit to running at least one Brilliant Club programme at each Key Stage, with ‘Partner Universities’ helping us to recruit, train and place their PhD students to work as tutors in schools within their regional cluster.

For the academic year 2011/12 we now have a total of 36 confirmed bookings for secondary school programmes, bringing in expected revenues of over £60,000, and a total of 6 confirmed bookings for a primary school pilot, bringing in expected revenues of over £10,000. We have surpassed 90% of our projected capacity for the year and are now working to develop new partnerships for the future.

Over the next five years we project that we will work with over 15,000 pupils from schools serving low participation communities, including more than 3,000 who are eligible for free school meals. By the end of 2014 we plan to have developed a partnership structure whereby 4 London regions have clusters that connect a total of 60 Partner Schools with 4 highly selective Partner Universities.

We have set out eight performance measures and our key targets are that, of all year 13 pupils completing a programme in 2014, 80% will apply to a highly selective university, 70% will achieve at least grades ABB at A-Level, and 55% will go on to study at a highly selective university.

Clear evidence of demand from schools, and an understanding of costs and prices that is informed by programmes delivered to date, together give us confidence that our operational model is commercially sound. It is a stated priority of The Brilliant Club to build a stable and financially sustainable organisation, setting out a realistic path to sustainability over the next three to five years. In order to achieve this we plan that revenue from trading will cover the organisation’s core costs, including staff costs, within three to five years.

Our base case financial forecasts show the organisation breaking even by the end of year 3, at this point incurring a maximum deficit carried forward of £75,955. In years 4 and 5 we generate annual surpluses of £12,100 and £39,570 respectively, giving a cumulative deficit of £24,285 over the five year period.

IMPACTO SOCIAL

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

Within six months we had completed pilot programmes with year 9 and year 11 pupils at London Academy, as well as with year 12 participants on the Higher Education Access Programme for Schools. In each case we received excellent results and feedback: over the course of the year 11 programme, the number of pupils working towards 5 A*-A grades increased from 3/19 at the start to 12/19 at the end, with 15/19 going on to achieve at least 5 A*-As in their GCSE results. In response to the statement ‘I would like to take part in The Brilliant Club again’ we received average results of 10/10 (year 9), 9.5/10 (year 11) and 9.7/10 (year 12).

From this we have had have significant demand from many schools across London and will be placing over 50 PhD students in to 25 schools by the end of August.

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

1. PhD students do not routinely deliver excellent teaching and learning: To prevent this we have put three key processes in place (selection/training/support), each of which being specifically designed to meet the differing needs of our primary school tutors and secondary school tutors.

The cost of the programme is too high for schools: In order for us to become financially sustainable, our operational model relies on schools paying for our programmes. To ensure that our programmes are priced at a feasible level for schools we have consulted with Head Teachers and set our prices at a level that they deemed appropriate.

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

Our commitment to financial, social and environmental stability is demonstrated in our key priorities:

• Build a stable organisation that is financially sustainable and generates significant revenues.
• Constantly develop and evaluate programmes to ensure that we maximise our impact.
• Create and maintain relationships with a total of 59 target London schools.
• Create and maintain relationships with 4 Partner Universities, helping us recruit, train and place their PhD students.
• Develop effective recruitment channels across London universities.
• Run pilot programmes that connect schools and universities in at least 2 other regions of the UK and make preparations to expand our operations across the country.
• Ensure we adhere to a strict environmental policy that promotes sustainability (for example, enforce our no petrol expenses policy)

In addition to this, our financial forecasts make a concerted effort to ensure that assumptions are based upon clear evidence of demand, that costs and prices are informed by programmes we have already delivered and that projections are at the conservative end of the spectrum. Our base scenario shows the organisation breaking even by the end of year 3, at this point incurring a maximum deficit carried forward of £75,955. In years 4 and 5 we generate annual surpluses of £12,100 and £39,570 respectively, giving a cumulative deficit of £24,285 over the five year period.

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

I am fortunate enough to have worked for the award winning social enterprise PEAS (Promoting Equality in African Schools) that build sustainable secondary schools in East Africa and have witnessed first-hand the contribution social enterprise can make in developing countries.

Every single PEAS school covers its own running costs through low fees, government subsidies and Income Generating Activities. Even the costs of the central PEAS Uganda audit and educational inspection teams are funded from excess revenues from their schools.

Too many charities create dependency on donor funding and PEAS show how much further money can go when it multiplies rather than undermines the energies of local communities.

It is through innovative sustainable business models like this that empower local communities that I believe social enterprise can contribute most to the improvement of developing countries.

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

My work in the UK is largely focused in an education system that exists but I believe is defective and unjust. It will be very interesting to explore education provision in Uganda and discuss the challenges with the young farmers we meet and our host families, where for the vast majority of teenagers there simply is not any provision of secondary education, which presents a whole new level of comparative injustice.

I am also extremely interested in exploring the idea of social enterprise in a different context. In the UK we are fortunate enough to have been supported by large organisations like Teach First. However, it will very interesting and most certainly productive to look at how social enterprise can have a sustained impact in an environment where resources and support networks may not be as established as they are in the UK.

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

Students going through personal crisis (problems with family, friends, school) often do not have enough and available free resources to turn to for emotional support, practical information, and advice. Although schools provide limited counseling, students often only turn to these counselors for academic guidance. Students rarely go to school counselor for personal problems for several reasons. Also, students do not normally seek professional help because of the associated costs, for fear of being labeled as "crazy", and for fear of the possible consequences (ie. being taken away from his family). Students who have no friends end up feeling isolated, depressed, angry, unwanted, and lost. These students often end up dropping out of schools, turning to drugs, committing crimes and suicide.

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

a student resource center/website, that is made available within school websites and school district websites, that will provide an ongoing (24/7) socio-emotional and academic support system among students

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

- Provide an ongoing (24/7) online socio-emotional support system among students
- Enable a student to seek immediate emotional support via real-time chat with another student who is available online, and also enable the “listening” student to empathize with the other student (“Help!” portion of the website)
- Match students by language and personality type, which would allow for a more effective communication and collaboration, and at the same time self-knowledge and self-awareness (“Who Am I” portion of the website)
- Post questions and answers anonymously in the “I Need Advice” portion of the website
- Enable a student to seek student mentors on different course subjects (e.g., “Learning Zone” portion of the website is where students can post questions and answers in Math, English, Science, History, etc.)
- Enable students to be aware of and share information on what is going on in their local schools and communities (“News” portion of the website)
- automatic filter and removal of unpleasant and vulgar posts before being published on the website to avoid negativity and to stay focused in the purpose of the website

I'm an only child and never really had friends or family to turn to for emotional support. At the age of 42, I found my "best friend" to be a paid psychotherapist to help me through my issues. Now my daughter is going through the same thing, and i found out about this the hard way. As close as I thought she and I were, I realized that there are just some things she will not bring to me for advice for fear of being judged and/or punished. And because of the stigma about seeing therapists (being labeled by others as "crazy") and counselors ("troubled student"), resources for socio-emotional support become even more scarce. Just a few days ago, I almost lost my daughter to death. She is a wonderful daughter and an A-student, and never projected any sign of depression. I had no idea she was going through so much emotional turmoil, I was blindsided. I know I can get professional help for her, but what if it had been too late for her?

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

There is an ever-increasing incidence of student-bullying in schools. Mounting research indicates that victims of in-school bullying are prone to missing school to avoid being bullied and in the extreme are significantly more likely to consider, attempt or commit suicide. In NY State, the recent Dignity for All Students Act mandates all schools to address bullying and bias-based harassment beginning in the 2012/2013 school year. To comply, many schools are developing "anti-bullying" initiatives unwittingly rooted in fear, coercion and discipline delivered by administrators. This top-down power tactic risks negatively reinforcing and exemplifying the very behavior at issue. Schools need approaches to “bully-prevention” grounded in positive, empathic and student-led commitment.

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

A year-long project engaging high school students in a peer-focused bully-prevention program: the Youth Leadership Peace Summit. Student peer groups representing NY's rural, suburban and urban (including NYC) populations, will convene with a day (in October) of interactive and experiential learning centered on foundational skills of empathy education: the art of listening, group problem solving, and peer program planning. Participants will form home groups to engage in a facilitated dialogue on bullying including cyber-bullying. Each home group will develop Dignity for All action plans to be implemented in their schools. Throughout the school year, project leaders will work with each home group to strengthen connections made with and between students, facilitate action plan adoption and provide advanced leadership training. Groups will reconvene (in May) for a continuation of the Peace Summit to share progress in bully-prevention and to co-envision the expansion of this work.

The Peace Summit marks an opportunity to view the issue of bullying from the unique perspective of students and stands in stark contrast to many anti-bullying initiatives implemented by schools which rely on disciplinary and punitive measures. The Peace Summit will be a “clearing house” for positive idea generation, collaboration, and student-led action aimed at addressing bully-prevention. The year-long program will increase student understanding of empathy: acceptance, tolerance and mediation through initiatives devoted to perceptual diversity, mindfulness, compassionate decision making and high-level listening. Leadership training, communication experiences, empathy dialogue explorations and action planning sessions scaffolded throughout the year will enable participants (members of existing student peer groups) to effect culture change within schools necessary to create safe schools free of bullying and harassment. Layered into the Peace Summit are purposeful connections between diverse communities of students. Using new knowledge and skills, the Peace Summit participants will develop comprehensive Dignity for All action plans which will support students in providing meaningful lessons to their peers and to model empathy and understanding for all. A product of the Peace Summit will be strategies and tactics transferable within schools (one class to the next) and between schools (expansion). Building this concept into the design from the outset ensures that positive bully-prevention programs take root and the culture created can be sustained.

Yale’s Model UN, The Anti-Defamation League's A World of Difference social justice framework, and Princeton’s Peer Leadership Model, represent three organizations working to address needs similar to those of the Youth Leadership Peace Summit. Competition risks diluting the inherent power generated in a growing network of schools that participate in the annual Peace Summit. While many similar agencies seek to develop student peer groups, the Peace Summit works with established peer programs to teach advanced leadership skills, enable students to develop unique action plans, facilitate cross-pollination among schools and enable schools to comply with the Dignity for All Students Act.

Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?

At the heart of the Youth Leadership Peace Summit is peer training: student to student. David A. Levine, now with the Ashokan Center, has developed and led peer training programs with students in public and independent schools for decades. His work has fostered successful and lasting bully-prevention programs, peer tutoring, mentoring and mediation initiatives, leadership training models, and coalition building. The impact of these efforts has led to the creation of safer and more inclusive school communities. Multiplying the reach of his experience and proven strategies for building “schools of belonging,” David has authored and co-authored numerous books including The Peer Partners Handbook (with Jerry Kreitzer). The Ashokan Center has long been a site of educational programs for students, adults, families and professionals. A hallmark of its work is using nature, history and the arts to create experiences that build and strengthen the notion and meaning of community.

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

Envisioned as an annual experience, the Youth Leadership Peace Summit is designed to effect deep culture change within schools. In its pilot year, the Peace Summit will work with peer groups from eight schools representing rural, suburban and urban populations in NY. Each year, new students from participating schools, mentored by previous participants, will be invited to participate in a Peace Summit, deepening the understanding and expectation of bully-free schools. The reach of the Peace Summit in future years is anticipated to extend to schools in other states. The ultimate vision is to create a nationally replicable model to eliminate bullying in schools. As a companion to the student-focused Peace Summit, Ashokan will begin offering Peace Summits for Teachers in future years.

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

Developing, implementing, and sustaining an initiative that will lead to profound, positive culture change within schools requires substantial investment. Staffing, transportation and program space represent the major expenditure areas of the Peace Summit. Securing pilot funding for the inaugural Peace Summit is a crucial priority and presents a substantial obstacle to achieving the early and intended impacts of positive, deep culture change within schools. Proposals are being furnished to potential funders including state agencies, private foundations and individuals who share an interest in bully prevention. With measurable and recognizable results in bully prevention observed in participating schools, subsequent Peace Summits will be directly funded from participating schools.

In 1985, David A. Levine, was conducting a student leadership training. The session stemmed from a feeling of disconnection and isolation shared by many students in the school. Its goal was to create a peer plan to build unity and belonging among the students. While running a team building experience, David realized how powerful student engagement could be to schools and communities. The Peace Summit is based on the understanding that young people can change the world when granted certain opportunities:
• to speak and be listened to
• to be taught leadership and life skills
• to allow their empathic musings to be given voice
• to learn how to create action plans
• to be supported in a desire to make a difference with peers
