What has been the impact of your solution to date?
The offered solution will make a huge difference in the quality of teaching and learning. Students will receive new experience and new teaching materials. They will know better themselves, how to interact with other, to be more empathic in their life, to understand better the others feelings. The knowledge they will get will not be for the sake of marks, exam only, but knowledge that will remain with them for the entire life. They will get the love to always read and study. They’ll be more healthy and fit and always prompt and in first line for better life.
More and more students will join the school, parents will be happy and their will contribute to improve this system. It will reduce the hours the student spend in coffee shops, but instead will give to them the desire to learn, to play and to perform. It will much more save to spend even the afternoons in the gyms, theater of the school, pool, computer, lab or library.
What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?
It will help to start a reform in the education system in Albania. Hopefully the parent will start demanding much more for their children and the Ministry of Education and other players will collaborate to multiply this “hopefully” positive experience.There is needed a turning point. There is a lot of discussion (formally and not) taking place for an increased of quality in the education system, from elementary to Universities. It seems that private schools are thinking in terms of profit only, and public system is fading in demanding quality, respecting curricula, and giving the wrong incentives.
It will help to improve the development of the youth. They will be better off and able to accept the future challenges in the Universities and in their future life.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?

2.Hiring and training pedagogic staff- with the connections,friends, colleagues, relatives that work as teacher will help finding the best staff. For training there are possibilities of collaboration with international organisations like USAID,SORROS etc
3.Going on with against the flow, introducing an innovation in the market- overcoming with a lot of marketing, PR, open days, lobbying, meetings, writing and other activities.
The dedication and the desire to bring in my hometown something that will be for the benefits of future generation will give me the courage to always give my best, to work hard and accomplish not only my personal dream, but giving an example that not everything is done for profit maximisation.

Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world [125 words]
My husband, a physician and myself since our children entered in school started to see the real problems of elementary school. As part time teachers both of us have been seeing the problem of High Education as well ( Universities), where students had not willingness to come to school, no incentive to learn, problems in writing and expressing themselves.
Since one year we are thinking to enter in this incentive, being supported by our friends, parents as well. We know that cannot change the world, but definitely we can make e change, we can give a support to the education system in Albania for change. We can give a hope to the parents that are willing to invest for their children future. We can be part of seeing young generation being much more developed and with more values and essence.
