What is your signature innovation, your new idea, in one sentence?
my new idea is to bring street and war affected children from the streets to school through sports and empowering them to brighten their future
Describe your innovation. What makes your idea unique and different than others doing work in the field?
My idea is unique compared to the existing approaches/policies to street and war affected kids out of the streets, I believe they have their right to decide on what to do, so we will use sport to give them sense of humanity and then individually develop the children's development plan. and we share with them all what is their loniliness and despair to give them hope.
What are the existing barriers, the biggest problem, your innovation is hoping to address/change?
The existing pproblem is lack of funding to strengthen the program but also poor understanding among other interveners in the role of sports to include and rehabilitate children.
the biggest problem we hope to adress is the increase in number of street children in burundi and school dropouts in war affected zones.
Delivery Model: How do you implement your innovation and apply it to the challenge/problem you are addressing?
We are planning to start up in the KIRUNDO PROVINCE which borders with rwanda where we have our succesful programs, this campaign that will mobilise both the street children, war affected children, leaders and other interveners on the use of sport to reintegrate these children in the society. then inviting thesen leaders to some sports days and try to build friendship between the street children, leaders and community hence integrating them in their communities.
How do you plan to grow your innovation?
when this innovation becomes succesful in the Kirundo then there shopuld be mobilisiation of parents into parenting skills to be able to care for their children. education of parents would be the next step and ptroviding the same services to other provinces near by Kirundo like Kayanza, Ngozi and Gitega.
