Impact: What is the impact of the work to date?
The work has not commenced yet but immediately after kicking off, Women are going to be employed either directly or indirectly. This will ensure self reliance among the now working women. Secondly, sensitization of women issues through publication of the magazine. A lot of women are going to be sensitized by reading the publication and will also get the opportunity to contribute towards addressing solutions or problems related to gender parity. Thirdly and most important of all, is when the project starts realizing a profit, then bright girls are going to be given the chance of getting an education by being sponsored by the project.
Barriers: What barriers might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
Algeria to a large extent is a Muslim nation therefore it is a big challenge in publishing a magazine that creates awareness about women going to school and getting employed among other issues. This aspect will be approached with a lot of caution so that whatever is published does not conflict with Islamic teachings. Social barriers will also be approached with caution as these are explosive areas that could lead to even the government going against the project in favor of the people. Hence the magazine will be non political and will only address less controversial subjects affecting women.
Full Impact Potential: What are the main spread strategies moving forward? (Please consider geographic spread, policy reform, and independent replication/adoption of the idea or other mechanisms.)
The magazine will be printed and spread within the urban centers at the start, because individuals in urban areas are usually educated and employed hence can afford to purchase it. Aggressive women shall be employed to make the magazine embrace religion (Algeria is an Islamic state) as well as sensitize women on gender equality. The idea is to make it as informative as possible as well as entertaining to ensure that it kicks off with a bang. The intention is to have as many readers as possible because this will ensure that the magazine can now be distributed to the rural areas. Using the social network is another way of ensuring the magazine gets to the masses. It will be a monthly issue, that will later be produced and distributed daily.
