THE NORTHERN TIMES

Northern part of Kenya is the most marginalized area in Kenya in terms of infrastructure which made it easy for mainstream media to ignore it. This created avenue for corruption by public officers who lacked any institution to oversee their activities which give birth to The Mandera Times.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Northern part of Kenya is the most marginalized area in Kenya in terms of infrastructure which made it easy for mainstream media to ignore it. This created avenue for corruption by public officers who lacked any institution to oversee their activities which give birth to The Mandera Times.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if The Northern Times start a local language Tv and invite elected leaders and constituents to discuss issues?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

My project is giving voice to the voiceless people of Northern Kenya who are totally ignored by mainstream media. Over 3 million population are rarely heard and addressed of their challenges. resources meant for them is diverted by the leaders and no accountability for it. Politicians got the final say because, at the back of their mind, they know that there is no 'big brother' watching over their activities.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

The Mandera Times (The Northern Times) has greatly achieved much in terms of bridging information gap in Northern Kenya. We started the monthly newsletter for the region that gave them platform to discuss issues. We are looking into starting a radio and later on a Television program for the region and completely eliminate their thirst for information.

We have continuously monitored, investigated and reported on developmental works in the region and put politicians on a tight rope and for the first time gave citizens platform to interact with their leaders.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

one of our articles that criticized on a developmental project that wasn't priority for the area helped resident to objectively reject it during the public participation of the budget. The Multimillion project had to be removed from that financial year's budget. The article dragged the like minded elite together, who fully rejected the entire project and was replaced with one of their priority on behalf on the society. This really proved to them how powerful they are and their acknowledgement of how beneficiary the paper was to them. The action by the public made the government to always have them in the picture before blindly 'placing' the project they don't need on them.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

For the first time, Northern part of Kenya got a media of their own, where they can highlight and engage on issues together. We got over 15,000 in readership and multiples of that indirectly benefiting from them. Several subjects of concerns have been discussed in addition to daily happenings and more to come.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

The project a very high potential of bringing together everyone in the society (the literate and illiterate) especially with introduction local language TV and Radio and making it difficult for irresponsible leaders to take charge of their development projects.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

This is a self sustaining project if only we invest heavily once in the infrastructure. At the same time, we are working very closely with regional government, whom we believe will be our main client and we hope and pray that afterwards, the project will be perfectly self sustaining.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

ONG/OCS, Clientes.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

So far, there is no single organization that is trying to address the challenges we are addressing. The county government press team is doing documentaries but it is only PR gimmicks but not objectively doing any good for the society in terms of oversight.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

being the only region left out by mainstream media and only less developed in Kenya, I decided together with other young men who hail from the region, decided to try it out in October 2012. In addition to that, Kenya was set to start devolution where our region is amongst several counties that will receive the greatest share in terms of resource allocation. Having the resource waste in the area by elected leaders, we decided that we must be part of the group that ensures maximum utilization of that resources and value for money is achieved.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Hussein Ali Hussein- Vice Chair (Coordination in my absence and in charge of marketing. part Time and a board memeber.
Shueb Nurow Ibrahim- Chief Editor (Involved in editing and guiding in news writing)- Full time worker and a board member.
Albashir Khalif- Bsc. Actuarial Science- In charge of research and development.

No ar desde março de 2013, Recontando - um site pioneiro e inédito - aproxima as principais informações do mundo ao universo infantojuvenil, através de uma linguagem própria, bem contextualizada e do uso da animação.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

E se as Notícias falassem com as Crianças, as Tecnologias com a Cidadania e a Educação com o Futuro?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Qualquer pai, mãe, tia ou irmão mais velho já passou pela situação de precisar explicar/traduzir para uma criança palavras ainda desconhecidas para seu vocabulário ou histórias mais complexas para o seu entendimento. Pare e imagine nos dias atuais, a Era da Informação, a superexposição das crianças a todo tipo de informações, da imprensa, inclusive. O que fazer? Proibí-las de questionarem ou de acessarem?

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Proteger nossas crianças ganhou novo significado. Temos que reconfigurar o contexto acima, onde as notícias que pautam os jornais e as redes sociais são recontadas para a garotada. É exatamente isso que o Recontando faz. O filtro. O tratamento às informações é dado especialmente para adequar as notícias à recepção dos pequenos.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

As crianças do projeto social da favela da Grota, em Niterói, produziram, elas mesmas, sob o método Recontando (animações e brincadeiras), um jornal especial que foi encartado n'O Globo sobre o processo democrático/eleitoral. Para produzir o material, diversos conteúdos ditos "adultos" foram tratados com elas e durante a feitura do jornal elas puderam apreender novos conceitos que, posteriormente, foram compartilhados com toda a comunidade infantil da cidade por meio do encarte em veículo de grande circulação.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

O Recontando, por meio de sua presença digital, desde março de 2013, alcança crianças de todo o país e do exterior (com conteúdos tb em inglês e francês) e suas animações /recontações já foram objeto de uso em salas de aula, portais de educação e projetos sociais e sua metodologia/tecnologia pioneira e inovadora foi objeto de estudos. Tendo tido o reconhecimento do meio acadêmico em apresentações na Unicamp e no TEDxUnisinos/2014.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

Com o aporte de novos recursos, o Recontando produzirá 10 novos episódios online e suas respectivas atividades lúdicas, o que dará a todas as crianças uma nova perspectiva de cidadania e de formação. Pois na era da informação os grandes excluídos, em todos os meios sociais, são os desinformados e as crianças, especialmente, portadoras do futuro, ainda durante a construção de seus repertórios, devem receber estas informações recodificadas para sua capacidade de entendimento. E isso, com os recursos adequados, é possível de se realizar em todos os lugares, a qualquer tempo.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

A sustentabilidade financeira do Recontando está na razão direta da magnitude de sua atuação. O método é replicável (sob supervisão) e quanto mais for disseminado, menor será o seu custo relativo e maior o impacto social e econômico. Apesar de ainda não termos nenhum grande patrocinador, temos pequenos clientes e operamos com capital de giro.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família, Empresas, Governo local/regional, Clientes.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

O Recontando é inovador em nível mundial e não conhecemos, hoje, nenhum projeto ou instituição com a amplitude metodológica utilizada por nós.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

No natal de 2009, quando ia comprar um presente para seu filho de 4 anos, a fundadora, se deparou com um incêndio no shopping qua havia interditado o estabelecimento. Pelo rádio a criança ouvia as notícias e, sem ter a total compreensão de tudo, fazia perguntas à mãe que, no dia seguinte, com o jornal da cidade nas mãos, recontou a notícia. Posteriormente, durante sua especialização em gestão do entretenimento foi refinando e aperfeiçoado o método que hoje é usado.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Argumentação, roteiros, conceitos e textos são desenvolvidos pela fundadora. Os demais serviços prestados são feito de modo terceirizado (desenhistas, animadores, locutores, editores, diagramadores, etc.)

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if the Naira becomes the strongest currency in the world

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Tarnished image of the Nigerian Youth to the international community. Lack of inspiration and direction among youth in Nigeria & Over-reliance on the government for economic empowerment.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

The show reflects the purity and true identity of the Nigerian and takes a total departure from the constantly regurgitated message we have often heard or seen. It is packed with the journey of the average yet extraordinary Young Nigerian who has embarked on a journey of discovery. We understand the power of a testimony, especially how it can stimulate the human mind to reproduce and build on existing concepts.
Through visual and social media, we take on the task of renewing the minds of young Nigerians all over the world. In addition to this, we work on providing insight to opportunities, for young Nigerians, in various sectors of the Nigerian economy with the aim of reducing unemployment in the country.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Our Youtube channel has recorded over a thousand views and over 40 subscribers with little or no publicity. Our Linkedin page has over 1000 connections with a lot of positive feedback in form of comments & messages received across all our social media platforms.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

An episode of our premiere season is released every two weeks as from June, 2014 and will run till December, 2014. Special editions will follow till the second season commences. Promotion on social media platforms will commence in October, 2014 and we are aiming to record about 100,000 views per episode on our Youtube channel by the end of 2014.
We have a year round website which includes a wide variety of information about the show, its partners, and exhibitors, and is featured on all appropriate media promotion and publicity.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

Our media and promotional campaign will be aimed directly at the following demographic and psycho-graphic groups:
1.Young Adults, 18-35 – The major focus of this program is to reach out to people in this age group in line with our goal of inspiring the average Nigerian.
2. Teenagers - we have plans of sharing the DVDs with school children so as to present them with insight to the various vocations through featured talents on the show, with the hope of inspiring them to discovering their talents.
3.Nigerians outside the country
4.Others– Investors, and consumers.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Our potential to reach a wide range of individuals increases our chances of securing sponsorship deals from organisations that are looking to leverage on our "projected" huge follower-ship. The Young Nigerian Series team will also remain dedicated and ensure that content featured on the show evolve to become more engaging and inspiring with time; and stay relevant.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Ndani TV's "Young CEO"(www.ndani.tv) - Focuses on CEOs. However, in addition to featuring CEOs, we also focus on extraordinary individuals who have excelled at their work place in the private and public sectors.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Being a patriotic Nigerian, I have always looked for the opportunity to make a difference. I am an IT professional and my journey here started 3 years ago. I heard the testimony of a friend who quit her banking job to follow her passion for Acting. This challenged me and created a restlessness which led me to discover my passion for cinematography. Unlike my friend I didn't leave my 9-5 but started what would become an alternative source of income. And over time I developed myself in various aspects of the art. Sometime in March 2014, the idea for this show came up while I was on a business trip. Since then, it has grown and is very special to me because I am proof of the same concept of the power of a testimony!

Awards: What awards or honors has your solution received, if any?

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

The show is partnered with a video production company based in Lagos, Nigeria, Cliq entertainment. Cliq entertainment is owned by the Primary innovator of the show. This partnership is responsible for the seamless production of the show till date.

Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?

The major challenge is funding. Funding is required to secure airplay on Nigerian TV stations. In addition to this, there is the need to employ full-time team members to handle various aspects of the show like production, concept development, promotions, and so on. Most of all these tasks are currently being handled by the primary innovator.
To overcome this challenge, the need to source for sponsorship & partnerships is mandatory. The show has a unique potential to create enormous amounts of awareness to multiple demographics ranging from teenagers and young adults, aged between 18-35 years old and their parents too (30-55 years old). All of which will receive equal exposure to products and services of sponsors and partners.

How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?

The show captures the “journey to success” of featured young talents, highlighting their methods, acquisition of the skill-set, family background, and so on; in order to provide the viewers with direction, in additional to inspiration. The show continually cuts across a broad spectrum of vocations so as to increase the possibility of impacting lives.

Explique em detalhes de que maneira você está utilizando as Tecnologias da Informação e da Comunicação (TICs) para melhorar o acesso à educação de jovens entre 6 e 20 anos.

Busco com este projeto facilitar o aprendizado unificado e facilitado de um tema que parece muito complexo a priori, cujas mídias de entretenimento acabam por utilizar bastante, mas sem nenhum tipo de explicação, portanto também venho tentar desmitificar o sistema biológico da replicação do DNA e divulgar o conhecimento acerca do mesmo. Para isso as TICs se enquadram pois facilitam na visualização simples de processos cujo modelo físico possa ser inviável e com a ajuda das mesmas também temos a fácil inclusão de diversos públicos com necessidades diferenciadas, tais como a deficiência visual.

Descreva uma situação ou história específica em que seu projeto foi utilizado ou aplicado e isso possibilitou que jovens em idade escolar, antes sem acesso, pudessem ter uma educação de qualidade, de forma que isso os permita a ser agentes de transformação. Caso seu projeto não tenha sido aplicado ainda, pense em uma situação em que isso poderia acontecer e descreva o potencial de transformação que você prevê.

É possível, por exemplo, a aplicação desse modelo em uma aula sobre replicação de DNA com o professor deixando os alunos jogarem e dividirem experiência e depois propor perguntas acerca do assunto em questão. Essa abordagem traria benefícios na visualização do funcionamento do mecanismo em questão integrando a turma inteira em uma atividade que não precisará ser diferente para cada aluno dentro de sala, evitando a exclusão ou a incitação de que o outro estudante é incapaz de realizar a proposta, assim promovendo um ambiente mais propício a diversidade.

Quais são suas principais necessidades para aumentar o impacto do seu projeto, neste momento?

Preciso comprar licenças de softwares para desenvolvimento,
preciso de maiores conhecimentos em narração para criar um tutorial em áudio,
Preciso de maiores conhecimentos sobre produção de áudio e design de jogos para pessoas cegas.

OFERTAS Quais são os recursos ou conhecimentos que você possui neste momento e poderia compartilhar/ensinar para outros participantes do desafio?

Design de jogos, conhecimentos básicos de narrativa, conhecimentos básicos de uso do software GameMaker: Studio, uso dos softwares de edição de imagens e criação de gráficos vetoriais Gimp, Inkscape.

South Africa Service Delivery Alive is the link between technology and social change that aims to address service delivery issues that have had a positive or negative effect on the sustainable livelihood of the South Africa populous

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if we could improve the livehoods of our societies through infomation?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Despite the use of numerous media channels, there exists a void that separates the government from the general population. Government efforts to alleviate and address concerns, does little to quell the growing demands of the population. The lack of real or perceived transparency in governmental institutions is a primary contributor to a sense of disgruntlement in the larger populous.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

To ensure that the information communicated to the public is not only clear and consistent, but also useful for private, research and other purposes; we have come up with a solution called: South Africa Service Delivery Alive (SASDA)

Public -
The public plays a critical role in the overarching thrust of the SASDA application. They, together with the government, are our main stakeholders. Through the application we aim to align their needs, with the government , in line with their constitutional rights.
The public domain has to this point , have not exactly had a platform to express their satisfaction or dissatisfaction about the services they are receiving from the government.

Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?

Our customer and value fulfilled by app vary per customer. We have categorised the value per customer in the as follows:
- Public – Service delivery (water, health. waste,etc), jobs and tender information
- Government – Public issues and comments
- Media, learning institutions, private sector and international community - Public sentiment and service delivery Information

The solution is app. based, hence we need to drive a robust marketing effort in order for our customers to start-using the solution.

Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?

The prize money would help us start with the development of the application and inject necessary funds in marketing the government. This be valuable to the initial stage of the project.

Since he government will be our main customer, once they see and understand the value of the product, and decide to come on-board, we can then sell the value-adding aspects of the product to them and other potential customers.

I am currently in the process of setting up a session with key government stakeholders, to present my concept.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered

I am part of team of three that is in the process of building a Biofuel plant in South Africa.

Even though we are at a very early stage of this project (Feasibility stage), I am confident that we will execute this initiative in due course. We are liaising with key funding and government stakeholders in this regard. And, through these discussion, we have received favorable responses from them

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

WHAT IF we could make thousands of people adopt more sustainable lifestyle choices, such that the little changes they make add up to a significant whole?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

There is an estimated 30,000 social enterprises in the Philippines. However, most are small with a localized focus, lacking the capacity, resources, or desire to scale up operations to reach more beneficiaries. Furthermore, startup MSME attrition rates can go as high as 50%. How then can we support the development, sustainability, and increased impact of these enterprises?

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Many groups have taken it upon themselves to create support systems for social enterprises -- conducting seminars / training for their capacity-building, product and business development, funding / impact investment, and so on. However, we feel that an integral component is lacking here when the social enterprise customer base is overlooked. As such, it is our mission to educate consumers on the importance of knowing more about their purchases, highlighting products worth supporting, giving merchants and avenue to showcase their wares, and granting the market access to these products and stories through a fun, educational, holistic event that gathers together mindful business owners with conscious consumers.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

MUNI 360 / MUNI Market Day will be the flagship project of MUNI, the landmark event that aims to be the biggest event celebrating creativity, design, and sustainability that engages its audience through a mindful marketplace, interactive fora and workshops, live music, exhibits and more.

Jamir Ocampo of Tsaa Daloy, promoting premium Philippine teas and promoting organic farming and biodiversity conservation, Charlene Tan of Good Food Community, community-shared agriculture, and Mara Marzan of Marsse, locally crafted wooden products made from sustainably farmed trees -- these are just some of the entrepreneurs who have given us such encouraging feedback on the quality of the community we bring to them and their brands.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

The first MUNI Market Day served as a pilot test for a bigger MUNI Market Day, and a more holistic MUNI 360 festival.

The first MUNI Market Day engaged 16 sellers and brought 700 guests to learn the stories of these entrepreneurs, chat with fellow like-minded in the community, and support social enterprises. The event was advertised in a major local broadsheet and was covered by various online and print publications and a lifestyle show on cable TV.

Feedback from both merchants and guests were also favorable in that the merchants said the quality of event goers was exactly the kind of consumer that valued what they had to offer -- products and services that had triple bottom lines and meaningful stories. Guests also valued the fora and workshops and activities and how they learned so much and now felt like they had a community that supports sustainable lifestyle change.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

By 2016, we would want this event to grow by 400-500% in number of partners / merchants, and in number of guests. We intend to make this an annual -- also supported by new weekly content on our site and newsletters, and our monthly community events, in Manila, and in other MUNI hubs across the Philippines and the world.

By 2018, we envision that the MUNI 360 Festival to have grown 1200%, and that it be recognized as a much anticipated, creative, educational event that leading lights in the fields of creativity, design, sustainability, and entrepreneurship converge in Manila for.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Revenue will be generated through corporate sponsorships, merchant rental fees, and ticket sales for the most part. By generating great buzz (through marketing and event design) around our events, we intend to attract a fair amount of corporate sponsors so that we can also extend lower rental fees to potential merchant partners at the event. We also intend to create engaging, high-value activities that guests will be willing to pay for.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família, Doações individuais, Empresas, Clientes.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

On my personal blog www.nomadmanager.com, I used to blog about healthy eating, green practices and cause-driven businesses, and I kept thinking more and more that there should be an avenue where different people could contribute their own ideas and discoveries that help in shaping a culture or way of life that is happier, healthier, greener and more inclusive. Moreover, I thought there was a lack in opportunities for mindful businesses to showcase their companies, and consumers to learn more about more wholesome options. I then decided that I wanted to be the person that gathered these people together, through a massive community event, but not before getting traction for the community online through our blog and social media.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

The team is composed of 2 full-time staff handling business development and marketing, and 1 part-time operations and marketing assistant. Legal and financial obligations are outsourced. We also work closely with a business strategy & operations consultant, an editor-in-chief and content manager, 2 developers (for web / apps), and a rotating pool of writers, designers, filmmakers and event volunteers.

Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?

Our main audience includes social entrepreneurs / mindful makers, as well as conscious consumers. And yes, based on their feedback from our events, they do value the community that we're building. We engage different groups through online channels (blog, social media), and through offline events both MUNI-organized and those organized by partner organizations.

Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?

The prize money and publicity would help us achieve our objectives by giving us more resources to craft our branding and communications, and create a more buzzworthy event by allowing us to tap more high profile speakers and performers for the event. It would also help us create more content (articles, photos, videos) leading up to the event, and then also thoroughly document the activities so that more people will benefit from key learning and insights.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered

Prior to managing MUNI, I was CEO of Punchdrunk Panda, a retail graphic design company initially based in the Philippines, and is now making its presence felt in the US & Canada. Apart from product design & development, I handled most of the company's marketing initiatives from 2008 to 2012, including but not limited to photo shoots, blogger events, and community gigs branded Anteroom Sessions which featured a marketplace, live music, and more!

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

African Alliance on Cancer wants to eradicate cancer and take care of the diagnosed in Africa through education campaigns and provision of mentoring and clinic services to Cancer diagnosed. We awaken governments, people, researchers and policy makers to take actions towards Cancer as big killer.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if all Africans were aware of cancer and that all African governments are taking measures against Cancer?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Cancer kills more than 750,000 people (More than 80 per cent of the death rate) and more than 950,000 are infected. The cost of cancer treatment is too high and people are not aware of cancer, they run for witch doctors. The most promising problem is that governments, policy makers and organizations in Africa are silent and do not care at all (No any funds allocated to cancer treatment).

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

African Alliance on Cancer addresses Cancer in Africa through awareness campaigns to pull governments, policy makers, governments, and communities to take actions against cancer. We also run education campaigns to make people aware of cancer through public theaters, public walks, social events which help people know the causes, signs and symptoms of cancer and how to limit the cancer magnitude. We are also helping the diagnosed people in Africa through nutrition improvement and advice on how to cure or live with cancer well. We also call and partner investors and entrepreneurs to invest in Cancer to reduce the bill of cancer treatment. Finally we help people to with early detection of cancer and take them to the hospital as well.

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

On 19th March, African Alliance on Cancer organized a public walking in order to urge the government of Burundi provide interest in cancer. The marching was attended by 150 people (youth), on 4th April, the government of Burundi called us to work with the ministry of Health of Burundi to help know the number of people who are cancer positive in Bujumbura. For a public and voluntary testing, we got 52 cancer positive people were detected (Breast cancer heading the list). The government provided us with Fbu 3,000,000 to help these people cure. This proved to us that if we keep working like this, the program will expand in the whole country and in the whole Africa in general and people will know cancer, hence the reduction of its effects.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

African Alliance on Cancer has created a great impact on Cancer in Rwanda and Burundi, our emissions on Radio Rwanda (every Sunday 8h00 am) and Burundi Radio (Saturday 4h00 pm ) have helped a number of people to know cancer and its impact (Symptoms and others) more than 2 million people sent their comments. Our peer educators have helped more than 6 million in 150 villages in Rwanda and Burundi to know cancer. We currently provide aid to 42 diagnosed in 83 families. We are planning to reach 46 African countries by 2015 and 54 countries by 2016. We hope to have impact on 1.111 billion of Africans to help them have knowledge on cancer and millions of cancer diagnosed people (Some know it and others not) who are facing problems of treatment. We wish to reduce the cancer death rate from 750,000 a year to 150,000 by 2016. We wish to reduce the magnitude of Cancer to 100,000 affected each year

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

To achieve our vision of reaching 0 death from Cancer and 0 affected per year, we have developed a number of strategies. We have 5 regional focal points, national focal points, village ambassadors and peer educators to cover all areas. We run public marching, petitions and competitions to attract governments attention and other organizations to support our work.
We also run TV and radio emissions to attract the public in our activities and make people get to know about Cancer. We build businesses and kitchen gardens for the cancer diagnosed people to help them pay medical bill and live well

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

African Alliance on Cancer will ensure financial sustainability through its events and programs. We organize campaigns through public social events(football, volleyball and riding competition) which attract a number of people, they buy tickets and subscribe to our events. The average amount expected to be raised in these events is $ 289,855 per year. We also hope to start a cancer educational magazine which will be sold at a very low price.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família, Doações individuais, Fundações, Governo nacional.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Africa is still living in darkness about Cancer, as a results there is not a single organization working on Cancer awareness. So African Alliance is a unique organization providing a unique solution to cancer problem in Africa.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Daniel founded African Alliance on Cancer shortly after his trip from Burundi in August, 2013 where he met two families fighting over a young girl (poison) but she showed symptoms of cervical cancer and they did not know it. When he came to Rwanda, his girlfriend lost her grand mum due to oval Cancer (It was so hard to take her to hospital because it was too expensive). He decided to start an organization which will educate Africans on Cancer (signs, symptoms and other characteristics) along with calling international communities, governments and policy makers to turn their wheel on cancer as it is ravaging the continent and none is concerned at all. The organization prospered after winning the Livestrong award which helped to reach many.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Our leadership style enables us to be successful, we have at the general head quarter, a full time team of 5, and a part time team of 4.
-Daniel Turikumwe who is Founder and CEO, Daniel has experience in leadership and community awareness.
-Nzeyimana Jean Bosco: Strategic partnership and programs manager,he has experience in sponsorship.
-We also have 5 regional focal points for Africa(West, East, South, North and Central Africa).

Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?

We are currently present in two countries (Rwanda and Burundi) serving more than 21.4 million, 150 cancer diagnosed from 82 families, planning to scale in 50 countries by 2016 serving 1.111 billion. They highly value our services as we help detect cancer early, know how to reduce cancer risks, and get medical treatment for a cheaper price. We engage our recipients through public campaigns, fundraising social events (Cycling, football matches and other competitions), public walks, media and social media.

Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?

By 2015, African Alliance will be present in 46 countries, serving more than 780 million of people. By 2016, we will cover the whole Africa (54 countries) serving 1.111 billion of people and millions of diagnosed and their families. We would like to install in each country a cancer authority that takes care of cancer issues, attract at more funds in cancer treatment. To achieve our goals and objectives, we need money and especially publicity to make our activities be known by people, governments, and other concerned parties. Money will help us to organize successful events, campaigns and reach all beneficiaries across Africa. It will also help to train many cancer workers in Africa who are a scarce today.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Because just about every young person holds the immense power and responsibility of publishing in the palm of a hand, every young person needs "digital drivers' ed." The BRAVE Project is an empowering, non-punitive response to online cruelty harnessing the skills, ethics and values of journalism.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

everyone used digital communication tools with kindness, dignity and basic human decency, not for fear of being punished, but just because it's the right thing to do?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Digital communication tools empower people to share ideas and collaborate to achieve amazing progress, but also at times to indulge their worst impulses faster than the speed of thought. Society's first-generation response to online cruelty -- the finger-wagging "Internet is forever" lecture -- has been ineffective if not affirmatively harmful. Punitive laws and threats aren't the answer. We can do better.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

There is a proven successful method of teaching young people to think before they post that is empowering, positive and non-punitive. That method is called "journalism education." It's an empathy-based curriculum, one that emphasizes Balance, Responsibility, Attribution, Verification and Ethics. That's the BRAVE Project.
We need to reinvent and repurpose old-school newsroom lessons for an always-on generation. Almost everyone is a publisher, and everyone should leave school understanding the legal and ethical implications of sharing information online. To be effective, the curriculum must balance responsibility with rights, unleashing every young person's creativity by helping them use digital tools to make positive social change.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Young people working in a newsroom setting struggle every day with difficult ethical judgments about what to publish. They first learn their legal rights, then learn to ask: Even if we CAN publish this information, SHOULD we? That struggle is itself the most effective, most lasting learning opportunity. It's so powerful that it shouldn't be limited to the newsroom -- not when every student is creating content and sharing ideas online. BRAVE is a new way of thinking about reading and writing that weaves together news literacy, media law and civics. A BRAVE school is a school that (1) welcomes the free exchange of ideas and provides outlets for everyone, and (2) incorporates ethical publishing practices seamlessly into all curriculum.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

BRAVE is still a concept, but it's a concept built on proven successes across decades of journalism education. Students who learn to write and report news are more empowered, more civically aware, and more mindful of the impact of their words on others. Research by the Newspaper Association of America Foundation has demonstrated (https://www.americanpressinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/NIE_Hi...) that participation in scholastic journalism is linked to college readiness and success. The thought process of preparing a journalistic publication is the thought process we want every digital citizen to live by: Have I verified my information? Have I considered other viewpoints? How will what I publish affect others? From a Northern California pilot, we hope to inspire schools everywhere to become BRAVE schools.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

The first step is to work collaboratively with teachers and students in the field to "build out" exactly what it means to be a BRAVE school and how the core BRAVE values will be reinforced throughout the school experience. This includes obtaining buy-in from administrators, who must agree to relinquish some punitive authority in favor of positive educational approaches. Fortunately, a new wave of state "anti-bullying" laws invites district-based innovations in creative a more civil online climate, and BRAVE will be offered in those states as an educationally proven alternative.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

The SPLC is a well-established 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has a stable, diversified and growing financial base that includes foundation, corporate and individual donations, as well as income from an endowment fund. We anticipate seeking grants from government and corporate benefactors to scale BRAVE beyond the pilot stage, but will use primarily volunteer labor during the pilot period.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Doações individuais, Fundações, ONG/OCS, Empresas.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

While the BRAVE Project borrows concepts from work being done in the sectors of news literacy (by organizations such as the Stony Brook Center for News Literacy), civic education (at places like CIRCLE at Tufts University) and anti-bullying education (by organizations such as Harvard's Berkman Center), BRAVE is unique in connecting these concepts into a seamless whole. The prevailing "1.0 generation" response to online bullying has been punishment and threats by authority figures; BRAVE is entirely different because it is community-based and student-developed with student buy-in.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

The SPLC takes calls from around the country from students who have been suspended or expelled from school over, at times, harmless and misunderstood online jokes or obscure cultural references that don't "translate" for the ears of adult authority figures. When state after state starting passing laws threatening kids with jail for online meanness, it became urgent to develop a better way. At the same time, we saw financially distressed schools devaluing or shuttering journalism programs, and we realized that education in effectively consuming and sharing information is much too valuable to be lost. These are two problems with the same solution: Extracting what is best from "newsroom education" and pollinating it beyond the newsroom.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center since 2008, is a lawyer, educator and journalist who works every day with creative young people figuring out solutions to problems in their schools. He has many years of experience organizing, training and managing teams to create educational content, and the support of a nationwide network of expert volunteers including students, teachers, attorneys and school administrators.

On which of the following California counties does your project focus its impact? (check all that apply):

San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey.

How does your idea help cultivate empathy skills to strengthen communities and equip young people to become leaders of change?

The foundational purpose of The BRAVE Project is to elevate the quality of online dialogue by empowering young people to use digital media as a force for good. We know from 40 years of institutional experience in working with high-school-age students that young people want a voice in their own education, and have ideas and perspectives that are important for adult policymakers to hear. We also know that they lash out in anger and frustration when they feel disempowered and voiceless. Journalistic skills are civic participation skills: Gathering and analyzing information, summarizing and explaining it to unfamiliar audiences, building a fact-based case to support a point of view, listening to and learning from opposing views.

Needs/Offers

Demanda

We always welcome input on curriculum design from students and educators alike.

Oferta

Our organization has broad expertise in education law and the law of access to information, and is always pleased to collaborate

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

We will work directly with the Journalism Education Association of Northern California, a coalition of media-arts teachers, and specifically with JEANC board members Ellen Austin (Harker School) and Michelle Balmeo (Monta Vista High School), who will help develop and pilot BRAVE curriculum with their students. Research support will be provided by the Center for Scholastic Journalism at Kent State University in Ohio.

Desafios

The biggest challenge is simply finding time to deliver BRAVE curriculum given the competing demands on time during the school day. At the pilot stage where we are working with enthusiastic and supportive schools, we don't anticipate a problem, but that will be a challenge in bringing the project to scale. We think success, particularly if it is documented by research, will be its own best advertisement, since there is such hunger for effective anti-bullying programs and a political will to devote school resources to the problem.

Does your project use any of the following approaches to cultivate community members as empathetic and collaborative leaders?

creating a safe space, developing emotional competency, building leadership skills, group play, storytelling, immersion, collective problem-solving, identifying shared values and differences, instilling courage, enabling action.

Target Age Group(s)

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if every community in North America used SportsVille as their source for and sport information, facilities, events, individual stats and more?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Joe can't find anyone to play squash against.
Sarah wants to play in a mixed slow pitch league this year.
Steve wants to know when each nearby community is hosting a local triathlon, and needs people to train with.
Samantha wants a place to view her minor hockey leagues statistics, upcoming tournaments, and schedules online.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

SportsVille will allow Joe to easily find information on who plays squash in his community, and where to play. Sarah will easily find contact information for all the mixed slow pitch leagues in her community. Steve will easily access information on Triathlon for all communities in North America. For Steve's community, he will know who is interested in swimming, cycling, or running. Samantha will easily be able to pull up her leagues schedules, statistics and upcoming tournaments throughout the year for every sport she participates in.

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

SportsVille's online setup will encourage people of all ages to easily find event information, leagues, and friends in every sport. This will encourage people to become more active, meet new people, and become way more organized and informed. This will give everyone the extra motivation to get out and participate in events across the sporting spectrum.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

When the SportsVille website catches on each community will have the ability to advertise a sporting event to the world. All leagues will be much more organized, stats and schedules will be readily available to create, edit, and view online.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

SportsVille will catch on and become a game changer for every organized sport across North America.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

To ensure financial sustainability the website must become the GOTO place for everyone in the sporting world. Once this step is complete, advertising will be exponentially effective and communities will promote tourism, travel, and highlight their best races, events, and tournaments. Featured events on SportsVille could be brought to the spotlight to give that extra attention and bring with it a ton of extra motivation for competing athletes.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Doações individuais, Fundações, Governo local/regional, Governo nacional.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Picture this!!! You open the website, a map of north america, you zoom in on your desired community, you click the link to that communities unique page, you access all sporting information for that community. Easy to use!
Want to what another community has to offer? Zoom out and fly yourself to any desired community in North America to see what sports they offer, who is playing them, who is winning them, and when you could go and compete!!

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

As a graduate of Fitness and Health Promotion in beautiful Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. I have a burning passion for competing in Triathlons, and living a healthy active life by participating all recreational sports I enjoy! Meeting new people is sometimes a challenge when swimming, cycling, or running. Local websites don't have the best social aspect.
After seeing the commercial for Playexchange on CBC I knew this was a perfect opportunity to act upon one of the biggest ideas I have ever experienced.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

we could reduce stress eating as well as depression in our society.

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and suicide are part of the top ten leading causes of death in Canada. One of the main problems that can lead to these deaths are stress, caused by expectations of society, low self-esteem, money, etc. When people a stressed they tend to stress eat -- in particular, sugary foods which can cause sugar spikes. These spikes can then lead to Type 2 Diabetes which increases the chance of heart disease and stroke.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

To decrease stress in society I propose that we create monthly meetings at local community centers that unite all generations. Retirement people would sign up to teach younger generations about their jobs/ passions that they pursued in the past or still pursue such as a plumber, forest service worker, etc. On a website (trying to create a prototype) schools can sign up kids who are interested in learning things they typically won't learn in schools. This hopefully will reduce the amount of stress kids have in their lives because they will now have easy access to learn about things they might be interested in besides the required courses taught in school. These events will allow people follow their passions which should reduce stress.

Youngzine builds global awareness in children 9-15. Through engaging, unbiased and easy-to-comprehend articles on news and events shaping our world, we stimulate critical thinking in young readers and inspire them to become tomorrow's leaders by understanding the issues of today.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

We could create an empathetic and engaged citizen of tomorrow by helping the rising generation understand, appreciate and be prepared for the changing world?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

While today's education system focuses on standards and concepts, students seldom have the opportunity to appreciate the real world and the relevance of what they have been taught. In addition to helping students build 21st century skills, developing critical/higher order thinking, empathy and connecting cultures and divergent points of view will be the key to creating empowered youth in a world that is becoming increasingly interdependent.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Youngzine, a one-of-a-kind web based magazine, brings current events to children in an engaging, easy-to-comprehend manner. Through articles on a wide range of topics, we help young learners understand the underlying context/concepts, appreciate our world's diversity and accept divergent points of view. By highlighting the social, economic, political and human aspects of current events beyond the blaring headlines, Youngzine allows readers opportunities to become independent critical thinkers. Teachers from around the world have connected and collaborated to utilize Youngzine's safe, secure digital classroom environment to create engaging discussions. Youngzine provides a safe digital forum for readers to express and share their opinions.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Youngzine's recent article on immigration issues in the U.S was the centerpiece of a conversation in a Florida high school classroom. Students from varied backgrounds including new arrivals from Latin America were invited to participate in a collaborative online discussion during current events hour. Immigrant students shared experiences of their struggles during relocation from their home country while American students whose parents lost jobs during the 2008 economic downturn shared their families’ struggles due to competition from these new immigrants. Youngzine articles with appropriate context and probing questions serves as a catalyst for necessary conversations to build empathy while also providing a safe secure forum for discussion.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Youngzine has grown organically and is used in over 500 classrooms in the U.S and around the world. It is also used by homeschool families and receives between 35,000-45,000 visits per month, with 5+ minutes average site visit time. The Youngzine audience is exposed constantly to numerous social media and networking sites. The fact that young readers as well as classrooms return to our standards based content time and time again is a testament to the high quality, engaging articles we produce. Youngzine received ALSC's Teaching and Learning award in 2013, and has been listed by ALA, homeschool.com and US Dept of ED as an exemplar current events resource for today's digitally connected youth. Our editors are thrilled by positive comments from readers ranging from how much they enjoy learning, to how an article has inspired them to investigate and delve deeper into a specific field.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

The importance of global awareness and weaving real world issues into classroom lessons has been overwhelmingly emphasized by companies and educators in a survey by thinkglobal.org. Classrooms in the U.K that have piloted such a program have showed increased engagement and reduced absences. Besides promoting a similar policy shift in U.S classrooms, we envision Youngzine having geographic specific editions to cater to a larger audience, and expanding our Young Editor and Thought Leader series that connect readers with professionals. Will pilot our vision with Edmodo and local Bay Area schools.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Currently, we are largely self-funded with a small part of the project supported by our community of readers. We are also licensing our content to learning solution companies such as Renaissance Learning/Subtext. Our plan for financial sustainability includes: fundraising from our community, seeking grants from foundations, licensing our content to third party users and actively seeking corporate sponsorship for specific content.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família, Doações individuais, Outros.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

News media caters largely to adult audiences and there are scarcely any content providers that explain the background context/concept of news to a preteen audience while keeping the content and site engaging and safe. Besides Time For Kids and Scholastic, a few sites have come up such as Newsela and Dogonews but these are either offline, lack reader engagement or do not reflect significant news. We have partnered with huge players such as Edmodo, Renaissance Learning/Subtext, Knovation and Curriki to provide access to Youngzine in classrooms, and will continue to build on these relationships.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Deepa Gopal, the Founder, was working from home one summer, when she noticed her unsupervised 10-year old browsing sensational content on CNN. Her son had always been curious about current events, and had outgrown the likes of Disney and other online sites. This led her to realize that her child represented the overlooked age group of 9-14 year olds who have the maturity to comprehend events shaping the world - if only there were a news site that catered to their level of understanding. Unable to find such an online resource and recognizing the importance of global awareness, Deepa launched Youngzine in 2010. The overwhelming positive feedback from parents and viral adoption by so many homeschools and classrooms has validated her mission.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Deepa Gopal : Founder, President & Editor; full time. M.S Comp, Former Project Manager at Cisco, social entrepreneur
Anita Ramachandran : Co-Founder, Co-Editor and CFO; full time. MBA; former VC and Hedge Fund Manager, social entrepreneur
Sri Subramaniam: Technical Lead, part time, M.S Computers, VP-Engineering at Groupon

On which of the following California counties does your project focus its impact? (check all that apply):

San Benito, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey, Outros.

How does your idea help cultivate empathy skills to strengthen communities and equip young people to become leaders of change?

Youngzine opens young minds to the interconnected, interdependent world we live in. We take important news and events shaping our world, and through it help children understand the underlying context or concepts. Youngzine believes that doing so will help the future generation develop the questioning and critical thinking skills important to their future.

A driving force behind our endeavor is the fact that we are living in a global world, where success will be defined by the ability to build bridges across different cultures and opinions. To that end, we engage and inspire children about societal and environmental issues, and connect them with their peers around the world to help them see the same issue from different points of view.

Needs/Offers

Demanda

Content Writers who can take complex issues and simplify them for children. We are also looking for Grant writers.

Oferta

A safe, engaging, unbiased site for children to learn about the world they live in. A great teaching resource for classrooms.

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

Youngzine has partnered with Curriki and Knovation, two leaders in open content solutions for classrooms.

Curriki, an online, free, open educational resource (OER), promotes Youngzine's content among its 9.9 million registered users, to create lesson plans.

Knovation, a leader in search and content solutions for schools, profiles Youngzine's articles in their current events section. Over 16 million students use Knovation.

Desafios

We will need to continue building awareness of and promoting Youngzine in classrooms. This will require us to hire marketing and outreach resources.

We would like to expand Youngzine's content, building features to improve teacher-student experience, expand on our thought leader series and more, all of which will require funding. Ultimately, funding will determine how much more we can do.

Does your project use any of the following approaches to cultivate community members as empathetic and collaborative leaders?

creating a safe space, developing emotional competency, collective problem-solving, identifying shared values and differences, enabling action.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

teaching children about war could promote world peace?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

The desensitizing that children and teenagers are subject to is a major issue with millenialls, people born between 1990 and 2010, as they do not respond to world crisis by empathizing with them, therefore, by teaching young Romanians about war and conflict and allowing them to empathise with previous victims and disasters will increase their awareness and also develop their interrelational skills.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

The project will first present a timeline in world conflict history, that will need to be designed and written, however, by designing it in a picture book way, it can be modified easily to translate to other languages, then interactive elements, and objects, can be used in the presentation of conflict history to children, during history classes or youth club activities, even with the help of AIESEC or Interact/Rotakids, in schools or clubs in Romania and worldwide. Then pictures of war zones will be provided to each child, and they will have to write a 100 word story of the person behind the picture or in the picture. Following that the children will be guided to create a scrapbook or ebook with the creations that will then form an archive.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Today millions of people get health information from magazines, newspapers, television programmes, websites, blogs and social media. Health information network can potentially improve people capacity to obtain, process and understand health information needed to make appropriate health decisions.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if, everyone had the right to equal access to health information

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Communication is at the heart of who we are as human beings. Every single day, consumers are over exposed to information through media sources that say is possible to be healthier and to live longer. To navigate through complex health information sources, individuals need to be: health information literate, visually literate, computer literate, information literate and media literate.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Democracy depends on an informed citizenry. Health communication network, is a call to action, an informal network that aims to bring together health and media professionals in order to provide the current resources, tools, and ideas to support public health efforts and to promote citizens equity to credible, accurate and unbiased health information.
Health communication network aims to help reshaping the way we organize and empower ourselves in order to take responsibility in shaping a healthy informed society.
Health communication network is a call to action about transparency, about citizens right to know and to take action to protect their health.

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Millions of consumers are using the mass media to get health information. And thousands of Web sites are offering health information. Some of those sites are reliable and up-to-date; some are not. How can you tell the good from the bad? Read more in Health communication Network.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

Research studies indicate that literacy influences the ability to access information and navigate in literate environments, affects cognitive and linguistic abilities and affects self-efficacy. More than 1500 peer reviewed studies indicate that health materials, across a wide array of content areas and formats have been poorly designed, poorly written and geared to a very sophisticated audience. Health information also can be confusing and overwhelming. Given the wealth of information available through the Internet, journals and other sources, it's important to be able to assess its quality. Health communication network will develop tools and manuals that will help and empower individuals and health care professionals to understand health information in a more comprehensive way and develop skills in order to choose the most credible, update and relevant to their needs.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

The health of populations is determined not by health sector activities alone but by social, cultural, political and economic factors, and hence by the policies and actions beyond the mandate of the health sector. Credible information plays a vital role in ensuring citizens empowerment. Participatory approaches in communication that encourage discussion and debate result in increased knowledge and awareness, and a higher level of critical thinking. Critical thinking enables people to understand the interplay of forces operating on their lives, and helps them take their own decisions.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

There is no similar project in Greece. In international level we have recorded separate actions developed by different institutions. The strength of Health Communication Network is that bringing together professionals from different sectors in order to create a movement for health informed citizens.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Doações individuais.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

In order to achieve sustainability we intend to pursue a diverse of funding resources, including grants and donations.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

EnvisionWith.Me’s flagship program, Visionary Club (VC), is a student-led program dedicated to helping teenage visionaries with discovering their own interpretation of what it means to be a visionary and a community leader.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

WHAT IF students designed their own path to success before graduating high school?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Imagine growing up in a world without support for your dream visions. Teenagers often do not have the opportunities, resources, or connections they need to spearhead successful ventures at a young age. A 2011 survey by Gallup states that 71% of workers are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” from their jobs. Visionaries should never be uninterested when doing what they love and loving what they do. It is time adults take teens seriously.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

As a team of innovative visionaries, we are revolutionizing the way teenagers become engaged in the 21st century business world. EnvisionWith.Me represents the sole platform on which teenage visionaries can collaborate on their ideas and projects to fulfill their visions. We love to inspire others and we aim to provide teenagers with the proper tools to develop and expand their visions. We are taking teenagers seriously by establishing what we call 'Visionary Life' (our leadership/entrepreneurial resources) for Visionary Clubs (our element within schools). Over our six month program, aspiring visionaries, will have the opportunity to engage in hands on activities, improve their public speaking skills, and make positive change in the world.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

1) Visionary Box + Curriculum Booklet --
Visionaries within Visionary Clubs use activities like the Visionary Box (included within our curriculum booklet) to comprehend that they can tackle obstacles that seem impossible. This mindset allows teens to launch their dreams successfully.

2) Community Event --
With the implementation of Visionary Clubs in high schools, visionaries are expected to organize a student led community event using the skills they learn throughout the 6 month program. Visionary Club at East Chapel Hill gathered parents, educators, and visionaries from around the world to help teens identify their passions and launch their dream visions at Visionary Conference 2014.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

We've partnered with 6 high schools in the USA to implement Visionary Clubs for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Originally launched online in 2012, as a professional network, EnvisionWith.Me quickly gained over 200 visionaries dedicated to pursuing their visions with unconventional passion. It was so mesmerizing, we had to put our professional platform on hold to publish something radically different. Visionary Clubs are at the forefront of a young education revolution. They provide students with a voice in a system that is not designed to take input from students. Implementing common core, lowering college loans, exempting SAT/ACT scores, etc., have not fixed the broken education system. Thankfully, our program is revolutionizing the way we approach learning in the 21st century. This will result in millions of Zuckerberg, Jobs, and Disney like minds in the future.

Potencial de Impacto Completo: Quais são as principais estratégias de propagação para avançar?

Everyone is born a visionary and with the capacity to make positive change in the world. Later this fall, we plan to expand Visionary Clubs globally. Select students who absolutely love the Visionary Club program will have the opportunity to become a Visionary Officer and operate their own Visionary Club. The training program we have put together for rising Visionary Officers via the Online Alumni Network is pretty incredible. The flexible curriculum is a two week training course that covers 14 recommended goals for helping teens with launching their dreams.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

We sell our curriculum ($200 for 10 books) to clubs, schools (at both primary and secondary education levels), organizations, companies, educators, and individuals who are committed to the same degree of entrepreneurial excellence that we are. Our team will seek investments and sponsorships from established companies that are looking for the skills and fresh ideas provided by the young, talented teenagers that EnvisionWith.Me is geared towards.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Amigos e família, Doações individuais, Fundações, Empresas, Clientes, Outros.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

The greatest failure of our education system is that students only excel at passing exams. Organizations similar to DECA, FBLA, and entrepreneurial clubs preach about entrepreneurship and have mock competitions; however, that doesn't give teenagers the opportunity or experience to make real change in the world at a young age. Our curriculum is formatted for flexible usage and setup step by step for Visionary Officers to teach aspiring visionaries. This flexibility allows students to self direct their learning and gain experience by launching their dream as a teen.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

When Justin Harris tried to join LinkedIn to find help for a business idea, he was deterred by the networks age minimum. He scavenged the internet for teenage entrepreneur networks, but found only informational sites and loosely managed forums. Since then, he decided to change that by building Envision — the world's first professional network for teenage visionaries and entrepreneurs. Many teenagers are not aware of the opportunities that are available for them. With the introduction of Visionary Clubs, students can now find their passion and follow their dream visions using resources available on from the EnvisionWith.Me professional network.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

EnvisionWith.Me is divided up into several departments, each focused on an individual mission. Ethan Mikhail spearheads the expansion of Visionary Clubs, Cole Jenson leads development on our visionary curriculum while Peter Said controls EnvisionWith.Me’s press exposure and marketing. Justin Harris is the founder of EnvisionWith.Me and oversees all departments.

ESCLARECENDO A CONCEPÇÃO DO PROJETO: Estamos muito ansiosos para saber mais sobre o que exatamente consiste o seu projeto. Por favor, liste sucintamente os itens a seguir: a)quais são as atividades principais que você realiza com os seus beneficiários, b)onde essas atividades são realizadas, c)com que frequência, d)por quantas horas, e)quem executa os serviços e f)quaisquer outros detalhes

A) teaching entrepreneurial, tech, and leadership characteristics
B) within middle/high school Visionary Clubs around the world and on our website
C) visionary advice is curated on our website once a day
D & E) our committed army of visionaries spend 1hr+ making positive change in the world.

INSPIRAÇÃO: Quais tendência ou evidências você considera mais importantes e que inspiram você a acreditar que o mundo está pronto para Reinventar a Aprendizagem? Por favor, explique sua resposta.

Two key pieces of literature that inspired me are One Size Doesn’t Fit All by Nikhil Goyal, a student’s critical assessment of high school and our modern education system, and The Art of Self Directed Learning by Blake Boles, which provides the author’s best tips for self-directed learning. Half of our founding team is still in school and understands what needs to be changed. The upper echelon of students are pushed to study how to beat the tests, while the students who struggle are often neglected, and made to feel that the system is against them. Learning through play is key for success.

APRENDER BRINCANDO: O que "aprender brincando" significa para você e por que isso é obrigatório e não apenas desejável?

Learning through play means everything to me. Everything. It fuels my passion for helping other teens with launching their dreams and continually self directing my learning. It is a must have because it provides children with flexibility. There is no need for cajoling or forcing anyone to learn because they will truly adore learning through playing.

SUSTENTABILIDADE: Por favor, liste um breve resumo de seu financiamento, indicando o percentual que vem de cada fonte.

funding by source:
Visionary Staff Membership Fees (8% / $240)
Visionary Clubs / Memberships Dues (25% / $750)
Krispy Kreme Fundraising (33% / $1k)
Public Grants (33% / $1k)
Total: ~$3,000 (allowed us to publish our visionary curriculum books and video resources to help teens move forward).

MODELO: Como a sua missão está relacionada com o seu modelo de negócio (sem fins lucrativos, com fins lucrativos ou híbrido)?

EnvisionWith.Me is no ordinary job. As a nonprofit organization, we believe visionary leadership is a lifestyle. We strive to design resources that inspire teens to identify their passions with financial returns being of secondary importance. Our model is a social change oriented business whose primary objective is to increase the general welfare of the local community; therefore, our team of visionaries can focus on producing quality content.

PRIORIDADES DE FINANCIAMENTO: Se a sua organização recebesse hoje 20 mil dólares em financiamento irrestrito, como você utilizaria esse dinheiro? Por quê?

1) Scholarships. Our organization aims to reach out and help students of all backgrounds and monetary situations. 2) Growing our brand & partnerships. Giving every student the opportunity to be a visionary, instead of every student within reach. 3) Website maintenance [improving our resources].

PARCERIAS: Conte-nos sobre as parcerias que melhoram o seu trabalho.

We've established partnerships with 11 schools who are committed to the same degree of leadership excellence that we are. They implement Visionary Clubs to receive tools that inspire action among teens. I have delivered motivational speeches at TEDx, NCSSM, and BDPA. Through my public speaking, among other partnerships, EnvisionWith.Me has created and maintained stable connections with various school districts, organizations, and companies.

COLABORAÇÕES: Você já pensou em realizar ou realizou parceria com algum outro semifinalista do desafio? Se sim, por favor, compartilhe.

Yes! We're gathering advice from business professionals, college students, and pacesetters (Recesspreneurs, $25 Business Challenge, iSaveTheWorld, and more) in the form of short 3-5 minute video interviews. These interviews serve as a free resource on our site to help teens identify their passions.

VISÃO: Se você tivesse recursos ilimitados e conseguisse avançar 15 anos para ver que o seu programa alcançou um grande sucesso - qual sucesso seria esse?

EnvisionWith.Me will be the fire that ignites teenagers passion for entrepreneurship, leadership, and technology. As Visionary Clubs expand to multiple schools within all 50 states in the USA (and outside of the country), we expect to become the world's #1 Alumni Network for teens and kids. To visualizations of building "hotels" that provide dedicated office space for teens to launch their dreams. Adults will take teenagers and kids seriously.

IMPACTO - MÉTRICAS-CHAVE: Por favor, liste os dados principais que você citaria como prova de que consegue alcançar resultados duradouros na aprendizagem. Compartilhe também um dado para o qual você espera ver melhores resultados ao longo do tempo.

In 2015, we will publish two or more resources daily. The bigger the network of advice, the bigger the impact will be for helping teens identify their passions.
Within six months, our Visionary Staff will increase from one full time and three part time visionaries to twelve full time visionaries.
By 2016, 50+ professional companies will have access to the Alumni Network to tap 500+ untapped talented teenagers providing them with experience.

Durghatna.org is a core platform where masses can report a accident they see on road and learn about the road safety measures that can help them avoid the accidents as well. Accidents happen because of one good reason i.e. CARELESS NATURE OF PEOPLE and IGNORANCE OF ROAD SAFETY RULES. The objective of this portal is to decrease the probability of Road accidents by analyzing the black spots and taking required steps to make it safer.

Would you like your project to be considered for the Bangalore People’s Choice Prize?

Sim

If yes, how is your project applicable to the Bangalore context?

In 2012, 5508 accidents were reported in Bengaluru while 725 people lost their lives in these accidents. Safety studies have found that a majority of accidents occur either due to the driver's error or due to the negligence of the safety norms. Driver fatigue, drunken driving are some other reasons of the mishaps. The actions like dangerous overtaking, lane cutting, jumping of signals, erratic parking can be counted as major causes for the calamities on the roads. Usually, accidents are prevalent in urban cities where "Speed" of the vehicles is uncontrollable and where each and every individual is in hurry. Though government is taking appropriate measures, accident count continues to rise. A major reason of this mishap is that majority of accidents go unrecorded. This makes the government unable to plan the required safety measures. Adding to it, Black spot identification is difficult.
Durghatna.org takes the initiative to encourage people to report the accidents they see. As privacy of a person is not on stake, person reports the accident. The data thus recorded is used by Police and other government bodies to take appropriate actions.

Elevator Pitch: Share a concise summary. Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Our solution is to develop an online wellness platform and on-the-ground engagement programs that support Canadians’ paths towards improved personal health. The objective is to increase health-literacy and personal health management capacity whilst providing access to the necessary social supports.

WHAT IF Inspiration: What's one way your project dares to ask, “WHAT IF?”

What if we could reverse the increasing trend of chronic health condition and disease onset by providing Canadians with access to a free online platform that provides a wealth of information through video tutorials and workshops, that can track general health over time, set personal wellness goals, and provide access to a community forum for peer support?

Problem: What problem does your solution address?

Chronic health conditions (CHC) are often preventable through health education and social engagement. However, CHCs rates are increasing and are having major economic and social impacts as more working-age Canadians are diagnosed. Programs and services, such as online health platforms, informational services, coaching and training, can assist in preventing and managing CHCs, but are often financially inaccessible, self-promotional and fragmented.

Solution: What is the proposed solution?

Our vision is to improve the health literacy and wellbeing of all Canadians. This will be achieved by providing a free online wellness platform and complimentary “on the ground” programs. The online wellness platform will provide health tracking and goal setting, general health and chronic health condition (CHC) specific information, social forums for peer support, and video tutorials. A range of topics on general health and information based on specific chronic health conditions to help prevent and manage CHCs will be included. The “on the ground” initiatives will include in-person participatory-based CHC prevention and self-management workshops, community health “challenges”, and community engagement informational programs.

Que prêmios o projeto já recebeu?

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how your solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Many chronic health conditions (CHC) are invisible, difficult to diagnose, and are socially misunderstood which often result in depression and further social isolation. For the past 20 years, our cofounder Tina has lived with two invisible CHCs: narcolepsy and celiac disease. Only through significant research, self-management and personal tracking has Tina been able to identify, execute and maintain the necessary lifestyle changes to successfully regain her functionality. Had Tina had access to a comprehensive self-tracking, management and informational resource with the necessary social supports, as to what we propose, Tina’s journey would have been shorter and significantly less emotionally, mentally, physically and financially taxing.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date and expected impact in the future?

According to Monster.ca, Canadian workers want wellness programs. Yet 82% (3,594) reported that their employer did not provide this kind of service even when there are reported return on investments of $2 to $6.85 savings for each $1 invested in employee wellness. With a national unemployment rate of 7%, there are potentially hundreds of thousands of Canadians who lack access to a wellness support system. Complicating the lack of access is the fact that, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada, increases in working age Canadians (34-64 years) living with chronic health conditions (CHCs) will cost the Canadian economy upwards of $190 billion annually due to lower productivity, absenteeism, and medical support. Services, programs, and support systems need to become widely available to all Canadians in order to prevent the onset of CHCs and to help those improve CHC self-management.

During year 1, we will explore and evaluate existing wellness platforms and will seek out Corporate, Regional District and Provincial partners. The platform will be leased for a two-year pilot study with a goal of ~2,000 individuals of varied demographics. Startup funds will be generated from our social profit as noted in the financial sustainability section. During the pilot phase, we will solicit feedback and will work the platform provider to modify the platform and offerings. Based upon the evaluation of the program, after the pilot phase, we will explore further expansion of the platform.

Sustainability Plan: What is this solution's plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Once registered as a not-for-profit (NFP), our company (name TBD) will be funded from a Community Contribution Company, called PA (also in startup phase). PA will provide locally manufactured (Vancouver, BC) and sustainably sourced athletic apparel that is high quality, and designed to complement all body shapes. PA will commit 60% of after-tax profits to our NFP so that it can maintain its focus on the health of our communities.

Funding: How is your project financial supported?

Doações individuais, Fundações, ONG/OCS, Empresas, Governo local/regional, Governo nacional.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing this problem and how does the proposed solution differ from these approaches?

Corporate wellness systems are expensive ($75,000+ per annum), range in quality and depth of content, and are only accessible during employment (when available). For those with disposable income, there are a number of personal health tracking devices are available for purchase, ranging from $75-$400 and typically include a monthly access fee. Such devices are useful to track health related information (e.g. number of steps) but are only a single component of a wellness strategy. More importantly, they do not provide access to the social support that is required to enact behavioral change.

Founding Story: Share a story about the “Aha!” moment that led you to get started and/or to see the potential for this to succeed.

Our co-founder, Tina Quade, has lived with “invisible” chronic health conditions (CHCs) for 20 years. Similar to many with CHCs, diagnosis took between 9 and 18 years for celiac disease and narcolepsy. During this time Tina spent countless hours, energy, and money trying to figure out what would “work” to help her feel better. Struggling to balance daily demands, Tina’s lifestyle took its toll on her health resulting in debilitating fatigue and pain. Looking back, she realizes that the core of her new-found health is simple: peer support, nutrition, exercise, and stress management. Now Tina and her partner, Dan, want to provide others with the infrastructure to actualize their best health and be role models for the next generations.

Team: What roles does your team consist of (i.e. full-time vs. part-time staff, volunteers, board members, etc) and how do you plan to expand the team as the project grows?

Our team consists of the two co-founders and a number of experienced advisors in business, engagement, social enterprise and health and wellness. With a background in personal health management, Tina will be the Executive Director. Daniel who specializes in business development and program execution will be on the Board of Directors. A number of specialist advisors will join the Board of Directors as required and as the program expands.
