Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
It is always said that prevention is better than cure, but in Africa particulary in Cameroon this concept is not always applied. That is why, in 2011,10759 cases 657 deaths due cholera were recorded in 6 regions of cameroon among which my commutiy is counted. Therefor regarding this repetitive series of cholera epidemy and other dirty hands illnesses we decided to put in place the production of affordable and effective hand sanitizer gel in to reduce the spread of this epidemy and similar problems. Our first target as sophomore engineering students was our university with approximately 2000 students and the second was the biggest university in my community. We are still at the growing stage but we keep up impacting people lifes .
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
So far, we have impacted our community, thrpugh the installation of 7 Jade Care hand sanitizer dispenser in the Catholic University Institute of Buea and 15 automatic dispensers in the University of Buea. Since the creation of our business Idea, we have put in place means to distribute at affordable prices Jade Care Hand Sanitizers through Trade Fairs organize by both our community and the Catholic University Institute of Buea. As perspective, we intend to install our automatic handsanitizer dispensers in all local hotels, hospitals, restaurants, secondary schools, university and private appartments,offices, and transport agencies. Finally, after imposing our self in our community effectively, we will look foward in impacting in the same way the key areas where dirty hands illnesses is a constant thread.

As spread strategies,we already establish a good partnership with Global Fast Service. Which will make sure Jade Care is known and consummed. This will be done through the use of sicial media, TV Radio, Business fairs, Propective agents, and organized conferences and interviews. In the same way, a one month promotion event is scheduled to impact all university students of our community: The theme will be ''one student one Jade Care Hand Sanitizer''.
