About Project

Problema: ¿Qué problema está tratando de abordar este proyecto?

A lot of children in deprived areas give up on their dreams everyday either conciously or otherwise as they come to terms with the harsh realities of life as marginalised and excluded people. They lack opportunities and resources which their priviledged counterparts in urban areas and more developed countries have easy access to. These conditions imprint on their minds and adjust their aspirations to their mediocre-ridden societies.

Solución: cuál es la solución propuesta? Por favor sé específico!

Our solution runs along the lines of psychological development of children in rural areas and help them aspire and reach for their wildest dreams even in their mediocre-ridden societies and provide them with resources and opportunities to help them maximize their potential. These we believe can be done by taking them through self-building sessions which are aimed at letting them see the greatness they have in them and what they have to offer their world. Contests like reading comptetions is also a great way to engage them. As underpriviledged children, getting them resources like libraries and scholarship opportunities will go a long way to ensure they see their dreams realised.

Impact: How does it Work

Ejemplo: Guíenos a través de un ejemplo/s específico/s de cómo esta solución hace la diferencia; incluya sus actividades principales.

For deprived children,their most important asset is their imagination and a commitment to stick to them. Our project is intended to let them see the possibilities of their dreams being a reality. Our sessions will help them grow a new commitment and passion for the dreams they have which most times reality says are not possible because of their situation. To help them improve themselves, they need resources like libraries which most of the time are absent where they are. Scholarship opportunities will be given some very needy children who show great potential.

Impacto: ¿Cuál ha sido el impacto del trabajo hasta ahora? Asimismo, describa el impacto previsto en el futuro para los próximos años.

Our first session in this month of May was with a group of students in the final year of Junior High. My time with them was interactive and fun as they got to know how special they are even as rural dwellers and how the could do anything they wanted to do with their lives: their purpose:) They answered some vital questions by which they could develop personal vision statements. We have a reading contest between five schools on the 30th of May,2015. We will get a number of those present into our program for growth. With our library projects and scholarship schemes in place, these kids would be able to follow and live their dreams.

Estrategias de Expansión: Avanzar, qué son los estrategias principales para ampliar su impacto?

By the next five to ten years, we hope that our project would scale into more deprived rural communities in different parts of the country.
Sustentabilidad

Plan de Sustentabilidad Financiera: ¿Cuál es el plan para asegurar la sostenibilidad financiera de esta solución?

With enough funds, we will set up a viable business(s) to make sure we are financial stable. That said, we would however mainly depend on donors for support

Mercado: ¿Quién mas está abordando el problema aquí descrito ? ¿Cómo difiere el proyecto propuesto de esos enfoques?

There are a number of organisations into rural-child development which provides resources to children in rural areas in Ghana and elsewhere. We look at the psychological development of these children to believe in themselves and their dreams. Nevertheless, we dont claim to be different. We have a collective responsibility to see to it that more of these children are reached.

Historia fundacional

I was watching a documentary by Compassion international where a little boy at a rural area in India was being inteviewed. He was about 9 years and with his little brother, smashed stones into little pebbles to make a living. They asked him what he wanted to be in future and his answer was shocking. He said he once had dreams but now he knew he could never be those things he dreamt about. In short, he had stopped dreaming. Tears filled my eyes as i watched that little guy give up on life and there, i knew what i wanted to do with my life. Give hope to these children again so they can bring out the best in them to serve the world

El Equipo
