Conectar a las victimas de abuso para empoderarlas y generar una comunidad que brinda información
1 de cada 5 niños es abusado antes de los 18 años, el 85% por un familiar directo. Es el delito mas impune y silenciado del país. Se denuncian 10% de los casos y de ellos, se condena el 1%. Existen serios problemas de acceso a la justicia y vulneración de derechos una vez que se recurre a la misma. El aislamiento de victimas y la invisibilidad de sentencias violatorias de DDHH contribuyen a la vulnerabilidad, impunidad y denegación de Justicia
Proponemos armar el primer mapa diagnostico de la violencia hacia los niños, con el fin de identificar las barreras de acceso a la justicia en cada región y las grietas comunes y/o especificas donde el sistema falla en brindar una respuesta. En el armado del mapa, seguiremos conectando a las victimas entre si y con su referente local, quien las empodera y les brinda los recursos basicos para facilitarles el acceso a la Justicia. Con los datos recopilados se publicara el primer indice de respeto a los DDHH por Juzgado y Jurisdiccion, creando un observatorio publico de sentencias judiciales y premiándolas por su respeto a los DDHH, generando un incentivo para mejorar la calidad de las mismas y minimizar la frecuente vulneración de derechos.
Trabajamos en garantizar la igualdad de personas con discapacidad con dos herramientas: inclusión
Actualmente, las personas con discapacidad no están representadas en el sector financiero. De acuerdo al reporte de Handicap International en 2006, las personas con discapacidad son aproximadamente el 15% de la población mundial pero son tan solo el 0.5% de los/as clientes/as de las microfinancieras de todo el mundo. En Paraguay, un 10,7% de las personas sufren alguna discapacidad.
- Inclusión financiera para personas con discapacidad para nuevos emprendimientos, con acompañamiento proactivo de personas especializadas en discapacidad - Capacitaciones y acceso al Club de Clientes de la Fundación: seguro médico, espacios de esparcimiento, etc. - Participación del programa “Semáforo de Eliminación de Pobreza” el cual permite a las familias medir su nivel de pobreza. El Semáforo contempla 6 dimensiones con 50 indicadores, cada uno con tres definiciones e imágenes simples que representan lo que es ser pobre extremo (rojo), pobre (amarillo) y no pobre (verde). Cada familia auto-diagnostica su nivel de pobreza y desarrolla una estrategia personalizada para salir de la misma. - Campañas regionales de sensibilización

PalMap – aplicativo para pesquisa direcionada à transformação de comunidades carentes.
O Amplo desconhecimento sobre a vida na periferia, provoca a falta de atendimento das necessidades básicas (desigualdade, pobreza). Por outro lado tem instituições e agentes de mudança (governos, ONGs, empresas, associações, empreendedores etc) com a capacidade para mudar essa situação. Porem elas não tem acesso a informações relevantes e confiáveis sobre as necessidades e menos ainda sobre o potencial (ativos, capital humano)dessas comunidades.
Disponibilizar ferramentas (PalMap) para as comunidades produzirem dados que permitam o desenvolvimento de soluções locais e criação de parcerias estratégicas (poder público, fundações, empresas etc). Mobilizar comunidades para realizar Pesquisa-Acão (metodologias desenvolvidas com o Colab/MIT e Rede Conhecimento Social), utilizando o app PalMap, desenvolvido no Palmaslab. A coleta de dados é feita no app (sem precisar de internet) incluindo visualização de dados brutos, gráficos e mapas. Outras iniciativas de pesquisa ignoram o valor da periferia para geração de dados e produção de informação. Nós buscamos colocar a comunidade como protagonista do processo, empoderando através da realização de pesquisas e gerando dados abertos á população.

2016,some are preparing to visit the moon while alot of children are unable to go to scho
Since the rate of unemployment is high,the government is unable to offer jobs to everyone especially to the poor uneducated parents.So because of the lack of ressources,education for poor children especially girls,isn't always a given. As their parents think that they would be more beneficial in the farms or begging in the street or working as housekeepers than going to school and because they can't afford school materials (books,bags etc..)
In a lot of different areas in the country which are affected by poverty, education can be the path to peace and success. All children deserve a strong start in life, and we believe early education is the key to unlocking future success. That's why the aim of our project is to make sure that school materials needs wouldn't be an obstacle or a reason to force kids to drop from schools. We will try our best to afford those needs depending on donations and sponsors !More over we'll try to stimulate learning environments,work with teachers and local community members to achieve greater levels of literacy and empower the kids with a spirit of leadership, engagement and volunteerism through a variety of activities, sport and educational events.
Many families fall into poverty due to the cost of treatment of critical illnesses such as cancer
Insurance is poorly understood, unaffordable and inaccessible to the majority in developing countries. Many families fall into poverty due to the high cost of treatment of critical illnesses such as cancers and strokes. Low penetration and selective uptake by the sick drive up claims costs; whilst manual processes and operational inefficiencies raise administrative costs , all of which are borne by consumers.
● This project seeks to drastically lower the cost of insurance by using the ubiquitous mobile phone as the medium for client registration, payment, servicing and claims payment. We also tackle the key cost drivers of insurance of anti selection (the fact that only the sick seek to purchase), and low penetration, by engaging a large Mobile Network Operator on a consumer mobilization (crowd funding) activity to pre-generate demand and randomly registering 200,000 individuals. Further, all the operations: customer registration, premium payment, claims submission and claims payment are done electronically, thus not only enhancing customer experience but drastically reducing costs in the whole value chain.
MHSEL aims at increasing the English language proficiency among high school students in Mali.
Low performance of High School English learners and absence of an atmosphere to practice their English. This leads to lower interest in the language and causes lower chances of getting a job (as English language is very important in the job market),
Setting up English cubs in high schools; that aims at targeting English Learners and assisting (mentoring, organizing debates) them and uniting them to create an English atmosphere. Our activities would be book discussions in English, debates, quizzes and other activities which will broaden the student’s knowledge about the English language. Thus knowing more about the language will push them into learning more about the language.
How do you make a bright future? You don't,you build bright minds to make it!
Morocco is struggling with high rates of unemployment (about 10%),youth violence and bad education quality(among the worst ones in the world).It is not uncommon to see that many of our youth are lacking vision, life skills,role models and proper orientation.Moroccan schools do not teach youth life and soft skills which could help them in their teenage lives and future get appropriate jobs as adults,but focus on theoritical school topics only .
All those problems can be solved if tackled at a younger age! So our solution is to teach middle school ( as a start) soft and life skills such as:leadership,proactivity, communication,self esteem/confidence,tolerance, critical thinking, goals setting and time management, team work,EI,public speaking and problem solving. Why start with middleschool students? They represent the highest dropouts in the country and they living a critical life stage. How?Through the use of interactive educative activities revolving around: arts, sports and community service in addition to tutoring and mentoring. We want to let them know that they are WORTH something and they CAN do things they want and leave an impact on the community they're living in.
"BLOOD ME" is an amazing phone app that connects all blood donors together by creating
First of all, it addresses blood deficits in hospitals especially in case of emergencies .After establishing a survey in my town's hospital i found out that there is absolutely no control over the blood incomes because blood bags have a 42 days life duration.so many bags get thrown without being used. Secondly, it aims to computerize the donation system which is old and relies on keeping the donors information in a big dusty register.
The solution is to create a phone app that will connect all donors together in a virtual blood bank which is connected to the hospital and locate them in case of emergencies .It will provide the hospital more control over the incomes by daily scheduled donations to keep a sustainable blood bags number. This app will radically change the donation system from old and slow to new and efficient.
A lot of undergraduate students have enough knowledge in engineering but they luck work experien
A lot of problem in my community like of source of energy, water and education, because of poverty and illiteracy, we choose a community,tackle their problem, then move to another one. people are still suffering from this, because they do not have enough knowledge to solve their problems, at the same time undergraduate students sufferfrom lack of experience, they need to practice their knowledge,I'm one of these students,there are many.
SbyS was launched in 2013 was launched in my university,we are working in the workshop of the university where there is some machines to work with,each year all the clubs of the university present themselves to new students so they can have an idea about our aim and objectives,we have contact email for students who want to adhere to our club,and also students can come directly to me and ask for adhering,because the university is not that much big.we get together and work in our workshop,and when we need to collect problems we go outside the university and choose a sample of people we want and start the process of collecting data. (I do not have enough space to elaborate more the problem)
Noora Health trains patients and their families with high-impact health skills to improve outcome
Patients & caregivers around the world face a similar need–after a major diagnosis, surgery or health event, they are left to care for a family member but do not have the health information, resources or training they need. This is even more acute in resource poor settings (such as India) where health infrastructure is lacking & families provide the majority of their own care. This can lead to unnecessary complications, readmissions & suffering.
We turn hospital hallways and waiting rooms into classrooms. Through our interactive, skill-based learning, we make sure that patient families really have everything they need to succeed after a major diagnosis, surgery or childbirth - replacing anxiety with competency and easing the transition from the hospital to the home. We cut out repetitive, generalized, scattered information from the workflow of doctors and nurses, freeing up more time to have meaningful, patient-specific discussions. We utilize a train the trainer approach to create “nurse educators,” who are experts in teaching these skills in an interactive and engaging manner. The hospital transforms into an educational experience that builds capacity in families.

Although Egypt is well known as one of the best destinations for global tourism all over the worl
As many Egyptian youth i didn't have the chance visit many of the touristic sites in Egypt although i met many of foreigners who visited places I've never visited here.that's because of high cost of accommodation in hotels or tours especially when you travel with a travel agency.so most of the poorer students can't travel and stay in another city.As a result there will be lack of knowledge about tourism and history among Egyptian students.
A non-profit initiative to facilitate domestic tourism for Egyptian youth through a network for youth who love travelling and visiting new places from different cities.they will provide host families from their colleagues.as youth will be encouraged to host their peers and guide them in a tour within their city. Being with a host family will be a great educational experience for young students about different cultures,lifestyles,history and nature of each city. So the organizing team in each city will provide the suitable host families for coming students,guide them in tours through the most important touristic sites,provide cultural events and volunteering activities and sessions about tourism.

ZiDi™ is a software developed for point-of-care (POC) tracking of commodities in clinics serving
Patients living in low-income peri-urban or rural communities are forced to travel long distances to access care, which costs them time and money - the poverty penalty. In response, private owner-operated clinics serving the last mile are becoming commonplace. However these emerging clinics, which rely on sales of medicines to be sustainable, report frequent stock-outs of medicines. The poor computer skills make stock management a challenge.
To bridge this gap, we are developing a 250-strong network of trained youth, branded the Blue Angel Network, to support the uptake of ZiDi™, a health management information system developed to facilitate POC tracking of commodities and stock management in clinics. Blue Angels train HCPs to appreciate and accept the benefits of health IT, notably for real-time tracking of inventory to reduce losses and stock-outs, and maximize returns from their inventory; Blue Angels will train HCPs to validate the authenticity of medicines and curb the exposure of patients to counterfeit medicines; Blue Angels will assist clinics with forecasting to optimally stock their clinics with the necessary variety of drugs and improve availability of medicines.

WASARE means sharing in wolof.
We all have something special, some skills that we have to "Wake Up, Stimulate" in order to participate in the development of our community, our country, our continent. In the Senegalese society, as well as in many societies around Africa, there are a lot of issues regarding the youth such as: Lack of vision and volunteerism spirit Not involved in community services, prefer stay at home Awareness in the realities of the country.
We have to engage more young people to be part of the development, because we are the future and it certainly has to start today and now. We truly believe that given the opportunity, they can be the change they want to see and do more to impact their communities. For that to happen, they: -During workshops, they will network with others youth, socialize, challenge themselves -Will work on projects that will help their communities -Will have soft skills training on entrepreneurship, leadership, team working, public speaking, -They will develop their critical thinking and learn how to be a change maker.
90% of start ups fail!
After the revolution of Jasmine,Tunisia is facing many difficulties especially in the economic sector. It has to adress major problems such as unemployment.There are 200,000 unemployed graduates today and a supply of 80,000 new graduates every year who need employment.As one of the solutions, the country is trying to encourage entrepreneurs to create their own business but 9 out of 10 startups fail due to the lack of experience and mentoring.
A consulting bureau: TES targets young entrepreneurs(recently graduated from college),so conventions with Tunisian universities will be done.TES will mentor them through their journey to found a successful business and that by providing them with workshops and trainings on basic and essential knowledge on fields related to their projects such as accountancy, management, leadership...and help them create a network of experts and other entrepreneurs who know the struggles facing them through meet ups and create a website to keep the contact between the young entrepreneurs and the experts.TES will support the entrepreneur strongly in the early stages of business launch and won’t neglect later support to overcome critical phases.

We are dedicated to removing barriers that obstruct children from reaching their full potentials
The foundation seeks to end streetism, armed robbery, teenage pregnancy and poverty. All these problems are linked in a chain. Poverty prevents children from reaching their potentials. This makes them end up on the streets and others getting pregnant in their attempt to feed themselves. When grown, these will unleash their anger on society by picking up their guns against society. This is what Sunshine Hope seeks to address with a passion.
Sunshine Hope believes that the family is the basic unit of society. The training and support a child receives from home determines who he will be in future. This means that the financial status of the family is very important. unfortunately, most families in Ghana are headed by uneducated, unemployed single parents who can hardly support their families. This sends most children out of school onto the streets, some becoming violent and others getting pregnant. To break this chain, Sunshine Hope will provide free vocational training in bead making and fabric dyeing to single parents and uneducated youths. Sunshine will employ them after and pay them salaries. Surplus funds from their work will be used to support their children's education.
Verdant will contribute positively towards climate change through proper waste collection and dis
Inappropriate waste disposal, pollution and recycling of waste. Insufficient waste disposal systems installed in the communities. The existing service offered by Hysacam in association with the Buea rural council mainly collects waste along main streets and does not reach areas like schools, colleges, and densely populated communities Waste collected is dumped off without treatment thereby increasing danger to communities around disposal areas
Collection points for waste will be set up in schools, colleges, universities, hospitals and densely populated areas of the community. Initially, volunteers will be used to go into communities and sensitise through word of mouth, banners, and flyers on how important waste disposal is to our hygiene, health and environment Waste collection points will be set up with different collection bins for different types of waste – plastic, paper/pulp and wood, household/food waste, non-biodegradable waste. Waste collected at these points will be transported on a daily basis to Hysacam waste collection points using wheelbarrows – so as to avoid overspill of waste and further pollution around the waste collection points.
In Algeria the urgent medical aid service are called "SAMU = service d'aide médicale ur
In Algeria the medical emergency Toll-free number or the number of the SAMU (urgent medical aid service) is unfortunately barely efficient. This unity contains 80 doctors, 31 paramedics and 34 ambulances in the capital Algiers. However, this is still not enough for a city from 4 to 5 million inhabitants. Most people with an emergency had their friends have to rent ambulances and have no idea what to do to help before arrival to the hospital.
The solution is then to create a mobile application (as 98% of Algerians have access to mobile phones and about 63% are having smartphones "Ecrison study"). The main features of this application will be: • Database of toll-free numbers of SAMU and the civil protection. As well addresses and numbers of ambulances renters if no answer is received from the SAMU. • A platform where the patient or his helper will select the symptoms the suffering person has. Then he or she will receive an advice on what should and shouldn’t be done from the moment the accident happens until the arrival to the hospital. • Hospitals map with the different services included. • A GPS that is to be used to guide the user to the right service efficiently.
Hint: This will be the first introductory text about this project that viewers will see.
Most of the universities in Algeria centralized in the big cities. the majority of the students come from the other regions, they are not familiar with the centers (organizations , associations or clubs) that organize developmental activities because the organizers themselves they do not have a promoting platform that can reach high populatuion of participants .Not having any training leads to possess poor skills and limited experience.
Dzyouthopportunity offeres a website: www.dzyouthopportunity.com with its app that inform the students about the developmental programs that exist whether nationally or internationally and assisst the students through their application by English based preparatory workshops.It focuses on : application description , conducting cv/resumes, interviewing , google searching, opportunity management, English speaking and writing skills.

iTeens is aiming at creating or reviving computer clubs in Ghanaian high schools to engage studen
High Schools in Ghana do not have adequate ICT (Information Communication Technology) facilities. This hinders the students in gaining ICT skills required in the modern world. Most schools don't have computer clubs and those who do have run out of ideas on what to do and as such have become inactive. Most students have become uninterested in learning ICT and hence there is an increase in digital illiteracy in Ghana.
A computer club is going to be formed or revived by students with Information technology interest. iTeens is targeting 15–20 students to help them learn and improve on their ICT (Information Communication and Technology) skills. Most of the training is going to be done in the various school’s ICT centers with a mentor to help. They should be able to build apps to solve societal problems, enhance their education and get a career out of it. Special attention will be given to girls since they are the minority in the ICT field in order to encourage them to join the club and pursue a career in ICT. The training is also going to help students build a good online reputation. After the training, certificates is will be awarded to participants.
Ambercycle makes microbes that can eat plastic. Our microbes produce chemicals when fed plastic.
We are addressing 2 problems. The first is inefficient disposal of waste garments. The second is sourcing garments from sustainable chemicals, instead of directly from petroleum.
We are engineering microbes that convert most waste plastic materials into raw materials for polyesters. Our process produces raw materials that can be used to make 100% renewable polyester that has the same quality as virgin polyester and, at scale, will be cheaper than petroleum-based polyester. We think we can do this by starting with waste plastic, a zero cost feedstock.

Based on observation, In Buea and Cameroon as a whole less than 10% of students between the ages
According to the National Institute of Statistics, unemployment Rate in Cameroon remained unchanged at 3.80 percent in 2012 from 3.80 percent in 2011. Unemployment Rate in Cameroon averaged 4.40 percent from 2010 until 2012, reaching an all time high of 5.60 percent in 2010 and a record low of 3.80 percent in 2011. The most affected group remain the age group of 20 to 29 years, because they do not have access to academic counselors to assist them
The solution to this lack of academic counselling is the creation of a website ,mobile application and SMS platform , all aimed at helping students identify their field of study , divulging all necessary information on those fields of study and follow up students to ensure they attain their objective or career. In line with this , partner with local secondary and higher institutions to make this academic counseling service accessible to students and also working with the government to make this platform available in public schools which have more student population needing this service because they are mostly left out when it comes to academic counseling.

Evrnu fiber transforms cotton garment waste into textile fiber for the creation of premium garmen
The global textile and apparel industry relies on a vulnerable, resource intensive supply chain. It is one of the world’s largest contributors of toxic environmental waste affecting air, water and soil resources. The current method of production and disposition of textiles, creates 12 million tons of garment waste in the United States each year. All garments end up in landfills or are incinerated, causing environmental devastation.
Evrnu’s technology is built on two core processes for recycling post-consumer cotton. The first Evrnu process strips dyes and other contaminants, which have historically been a primary hurdle to cotton recycling. The second process pulps the cotton, breaking it down to its constituent fiber molecules. These fibers are then recombined and extruded as a new pristine fiber, which can be engineered to custom specifications for end use applications in denim, dress, casual and athletic apparel. With global garment consumption projected to double by the year 2025 Evrnu offers brands and ultimately consumers a long term solution to resource scarcity; it's smart, responsible and works within the business model of the global apparel industry.
Youther is an NGO that will link viewers to funded opportunities in and outside of Tunisia ( i.e.
Let's face it : a college degree is no longer enough to meet the needs of the market. A study that has been made on late august 2015 indicates that 15.2% of graduates and people with college degree are jobless in Tunisia. That's why, Students and graduates need to engage themselves in self-devolepement opportunities that will advance their critical thinking , skills ,and leadership along with their academic skills.
The solution is an NGO that will offer different services. The main services are : to create a dynamic website that will link Tunisian youth and students with workshops , conference , internships .. etc. that are somehow funded and will upgrade the skills and CV of the ones benefiting from them. thus boost their potential in the market. i.e : as an engineering student you might find a fully funded workshop in Lebanon that will upgrade your skills and boost your resume, you will find all the information about the opportunity in my website you just have to apply ! The NGO works on inculcating needed soft skills ( leaderships,communication ..) and offers payed trainings that will help them succeed in their applications to the opportunities.

A cross-sector initiative to create reliable assessment and remediation tools for artisan supply
Artisan craft is the second largest employer of women in developing economies, behind only agriculture. But craft is also part of the informal cash economy, making artisans invisible and their working conditions unregulated. Estimates suggest that 20-60% of garment production occurs in the home, not inside the four-wall factory. No reliable means of monitoring homework currently exists. Nest is committed to empowering through transparency.
In collaboration with artisans, brands like West Elm, and potential partners Eileen Fisher, Ann, Inc. and more, Nest will develop a set of open-source ethical compliance standards, mapped to traditional factory audits but adapted to the context of homework and decentralized artisan production models. Not a pass/fail system, the assessment results inform design and implementation of programming plans to improve both the economic and social viability of artisan businesses. Compliance issues being addressed range from Fair Compensation and Transparent Record-Keeping to Child Advocacy and Artisan Rights and Wellbeing. Market Readiness programming ranges from business and communication training to design mentorship and facility upgrades.

5000 is the number of Tunisian fighters in Syria and Iraq with ISIS-According to US House Homelan
Tunisia today is topping the list of exporting countries terrorists,most of them are universities 'students excelling in scientific field such as medicine,physics, chemistry, electronic engineering for the benefit of their skills. In the absence of an active community life in our universities such as clubs, students are an easy target for brainwashing,radicalization and recruitment in terrorist organizations that "give a value " for their skills!
My project is about strengthening financial resources and support devoted to clubs in universities,through a foundation,focusing on scientific clubs. Under the name“Engaged youth for better Tunisia” the foundation aims to help clubs in the universities to find financial resources to “give life” to their ideas and their projects and to encourage them to be engaged in the civic life. We will give them an other choice and an other road better then the extremism road. Providing students with a "healthy environment" in their universities where they can feel that they are effective members in the society, will strengthen their sens of belonging to our TUNISIA ,is the goal of the project.
Although stroke is perceived as occurring primarily among the elderly, it also strikes infants. F
Blood must flow to and through the brain for it to function; if the flow is obstructed then the brain loses its energy supply, causing permanent damage to tissues, leading to stroke. The consequences are motor, cognitive and behavioral problems, when the stroke happens at early stage of life, leading to long term disabilities.
Issues as early diagnosis, rehabilitation and parental involvement can be solved with a toolkit for dynamic rehabilitation exercises for children. This new toolkit would allow peer-to-peer learning that is promising to be even more effective than parent-to-child learning. By allowing rehabilitation to be moved out of hospitals and into the hands of households and families, hospitals can be alleviated from in-house therapies, parents can be empowered and children could recover faster. This method would also allow the collection of big data for future research and be applicable to other forms of rehabilitation from different types of traumas ad motor disabilities.
SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP as a long term solution for clean water at home, sanitation, hygiene and
In slums, families are not connected to the water distributors. They are spending up to 25% of their incomes for bad quality water, stored in containers. The main water operators cannot adjust their standards to this population. They face huge water losses and illegal tapping. Authorities do not know how to include these areas in their urban plans. That is why sanitation, hygiene and fire-fighting issues are not monitored.
Eau et Vie creates social business which builds a water network, equipped each household with an individual tap (connected to an individual meter) and collects the payments at home based on micro-credit systems. Eau et Vie installs fire-hydrants, sets up brigades composed of volunteers from the community and trained by professionals. Hygiene awareness raising sessions are also provided . In partnership with local municipalities, Eau et Vie works on the waste management services: environment and waste management awareness campaigns (Neighbourhood Clean-Up Day). Communities are actively involved in the definition and setting up of the activities. Eau et Vie projects constitute a global and innovative to improve living conditions in slums.

Our future is trying to address the issues of social vices, such as thuggery, fraud, armed robbery, and also the issue of unemployment. Unemployment is caused by lack of jobs, which leads to idleness and virtually social vices.
With the commencement of our future, secondary school student would be highly equipped with the skills to set up a business, when the need arises, for instance when they graduate from the university without finding a job, this could help them set up a business and earn a living by being self reliant. This would help a great deal is reducing unemployment and curbing the menace of social vices in my locality.
Deaf/HoH persons in our society feel often marginalized and cannot easily express their ideas.
There is an invisible communicational wall that exists between deaf and other members of society. This is mainly caused by the absence of any teaching of sign language at schools.As a result, deaf people feel often marginalized in society,and can hardly communicate ideas other than basic ones, such as asking for the time, or for food. this communicational wall restrict deaf interactions with deaf community only, which make their daily life hard.
Linatakalam which means in Arabic “Let’s Speak” is a mobile application built in order to assist communication between deaf people and non-deaf people in the Arabic world. This would be the first such attempt in the Arabic language of this type of platform. This platform would offer the three following services: * Speech to Sign translator : This feature will offer the deaf the possibility to understand the vocal speech and that's by translating it to the Arabic sign language, the signs will be performed by a 3D avatar. * Text to Speech feature : the deaf person can express himself vocally, by inputting his desired message or by clicking in pictures. * Sign Language Learning Plateform : a sign language learning tool.
Habibou’s passion is providing support, mentorship to Junior high school students.
During the last five years, thousands of students were received in already outnumbered schools. It is very unlikely, if not impossible for the schools to successfully transmit knowledge to many of the students to be fully prepared for the baccalaureate exam. So after repeated failures to graduate high school, many students simply drop out.
With a success rate of only 17.99 % of baccalaureate exam of 2015 in Mali (Mali Ministry of education, July 2015) the project is about teaching and mentoring High school students.

Lots of young ladies in my university are faced with inadequate entrepreneurial education which consequently results in non-involvement of women in leadership, entrepreneurship, poor problem solving skills, unemployment in women, and the mentality of “after school, find a rich man and get married”. In a society where men are considered top priority in getting access to leadership and entrepreneurial skills, girls benefit little or nothing.
The Girl-LEAD Project will provide a competent, accessible and affordable platform for young girls to be empowered by acquiring leadership, entrepreneurial skills and other allied skills through intensive and interactive training sessions, one-on-one mentoring, volunteerism and practical working experience. This will result in empowerment of young girls, imparting in them the skills necessary to stand out and pursue their vision and helping them realize their potentials to contribute positively in society. The Girl-LEAD Project will take the form of a study program for 4 months. After completion of the program, the participants are certified, mentored, gain hands-on working experience and supported in starting up their individual ventures.

Garbage Clinical Insurance (GCI) is a micro health insurance program which uses garbage as a fina
Indonesia is classified by the World Bank as a middle-income country. We have 250 million people, but more than 60% of the population still remains without any coverage. Recent estimates indicate that about 18% of its population continues to live below US$ 1 a day, and about half lives below US$ 2 a day. Households spend about 2.1% of their total consumption on health, Many people can not get access to health care due to financial factors.
This motivates us to develop garbage insurance scheme as health financing that we call Garbage Clinical Insurance. Garbage Clinical Insurance (GCI) is a micro health insurance program which uses garbage as a financial resource. This can make the community mobilize their own unused resources to improve health access and break down barriers between health facilities and community members. We take an active role in managing health financing and promote health investments for poor with garbage. Practically, in general, residents must pay fee to government to dispose of their garbage, but we offer residents to submit their garbage worth US$ to us. It is then is used to cover their health care in a holistic manner.
How many excellent, brilliant and ingenious students that came from a poor social side or live in
In Morocco, and mainly in the old Medina of Fez, I got the chance to meet many brilliant students that study in the public high school that could not get the chance to continue their studies because of lack of financial support or because they are leaving in a very difficult social situation. I feel that my city is loosing some ingenious minds. Some of them give up at an early age just because of the idea of "Success is for rich people !"
Road To success is a project that aims to gather the best high school students that came from a difficult social side or live in a poor conditions, to help them to get to the best universities in Morocco and abroad, to have access to scholarships, to beneficiate from mentorship and tutoring courses, and to motivate them to be the future leaders of their community and inspire other students to success. I believe that everyone of us has his own road to Success. I want to help high school students to see that road, to build that road and to believe in that road. I want to end the quote of " Success is made for those who rich !". By orientation and guidance, I believe that we can help student to know their road and to build it step by step.

We aim to educate on the need to maintain a clean and healthy environment, provide garbage collec
Indiscriminate disposal of waste. Gomoa Aboso, has no garbage collection bins in the town. This is the root cause making the surroundings a virtual dumping site for individuals in this community. The environment, then filthy, serves as a breeding place for all sorts of harmful microbes. About 55% of disease patterns and infant mortality here continues to be malaria and diarrhoea, all related to poor environmental hygiene (Gomoa District report).
To provide education on proper ways of refuse disposal and provide refuse collection bins at vantage points throughout the community. To establish a sanitation club, which will help check proper sanitation in the community. Composting will be made from some of the waste and others recycled. Routine clean-up exercises and outreach programs will be organised throughout the community to sensitize others and government. Target members of Aboso community, schools in and around the community and other nearby communities. We seek to reduce the 55% statistic to less than 5% in the next two years, this is the social impact we seek. It starts from one part of the community and gradually spreads throughout the whole town, go national and then global.

Our Eden project aims at fighting malnutrition in Sanankoroba which is a rural area of Mali.
The problem my project is trying to address is Malnutrition especially in children. Though most people of my target community are Farmers (80%), they rarely know the Functions of their produce and the composition of what they eat, they just eat at random. And this results in 15% rate of malnutrition and causes deaths of 1/5 children before they reach the age of 5. The farmers lack essential farming equipment and skills.
My solution to this problem is reaching out to gardeners in the local community; provide them with basic Knowledge and necessary tools for the improvement of their garden and the nutritional status of their family. Get them more actively involved in the agricultural-sector, by helping them on how best to market their produce and foster good relationship between them and micro-credit institutions.

Up to 25% of the homeless own pets & most place the needs of their pets ahead of their own.
Up to 25% of the homeless population own pets, yet most are denied access to shelter/housing, addictions treatment, & health services with their pets, resulting in a chronic state of housing vulnerability, declining physical/mental health, & continued disengagement from services meant to support them. Yet pets also mitigate loneliness, are motivators for positive change such as decreasing use of drugs/alcohol & taking better care of themselves.
The solution addresses systems level failures of inaccessibility to health services/social support for individuals and families facing homelessness with animal companions. Adopting a One Health model, the solution is in understanding the inter-connected relationship between the health of humans, animals and the environment. By leveraging the strong human-animal relationship within the context of social marginalization (environment), we have demonstrated that veterinary care is an effective gateway for accessibility & engagement of human health and social services. Additionally, we have shown that veterinary care can effectively amplify human health messaging in areas such as vaccinations, oral/dental health and smoking cessation.
The goals of the CSSBE is to promote equal opportunity to access education for both boys and girl
Education is the root of any economic development, therefore it is important to make it accessible to everyone. In 2008 more than 80,000 pupils passed the DEF, yet around 17,000 pupils most of them poor and 40% of them were girls were denied in Mali because of academic history, gender discrimination. It gets even harder if parents are not involved but let children go by themselves within a poor education.
▪ On 169678 candidates in DEF and only 32% have succeeded in 2015 compared to 64% in 2009 in Mali , and at the right side of river Niger in Bamako out of 12723 candidates only 2670 succeeded or 15,07% of success rate. In order to stop this decrease in success rate we have to fundamentally assess how they got to the 9 grade, Broke today, genius forever which target is the secondary school better education reinforcement, will then mentor and tutor 20 poor pupils with 10 girls and 10 boys from their very first year at secondary school which is the 7grade and follow them up to the 9 grade so as to better them before the final exam of secondary school called Fundamental studies diploma or DEF.
Many street youths,are involved in trafficking drugs,violence as a result of unemployment,and ill
With very little technical know-how,knowledge,street youths find difficulties integrating an evolving and technological economy.No opportunities are favorable for them as most employers tend to exploit them,considering them as cheap and unskilled labor.All of these,persuades these juvenile delinquents to turn to trafficking as fast money making.However these involvement in traficking doesn't mean they hate work,but rather caused by circumstances.
To ensure training of street youths,the production of sweatshirts is key to raise funds.A supportive youth group(3 street youths) is needed as they will be taught"designing,sewing,for the effective production of sweatshirts" and also"leadership,self-empowerment and personal growth skills to be able to train other street youths and to govern their behavior while working with other street youths.Once profit generated from the production of sweatshirts,10 street youths will be recruited and trained with the help and assistance of mentors in the different domain like:electricity,plumbing,increasing their technical know-how.But also,they will be trained on personal growth skills,in-order to help them recognize themselves as change-makers.

Do you have computer?. OK!
Nowadays, Some students don't know how to use computer to write reports and resume and apply to opportunities. This back to they don't have computer at home because of low income. Those are the underprivileged students.
There are a lot of people upgrading their computers and companies also do the same. So, we will collect these computers from people and companies as a donation by doing campaigns at universities and making deals with companies. After that we will teach underprivileged students of preparatory and high schools the computer skills and at the end of the program they will get a computer for free (volunteers transport computers). Additionally, collecting computer parts will be one of our activities to use it if there are some computers need some parts. * Computer skills: Basic skills, MS. Office, etc. * Target beneficiaries: the underprivileged students of rural areas. we will reach those students with the help of charities and schools.
