What solution(s) does your initiative address to better the lives of girls and women by leveraging technology? (select all applicable)
Access to technology, Access to education/training.
What has been the impact of your solution to date?
Students become peer-educator addressing social issues that they are facing nowadays. Qualitatively, students themselves transform their community by using media. Nevertheless, quantitative speaking, one school may adopt this model as extra-curricular (once a week). The target is 3 schools per academic year and in one school, you may have hundreds of listeners. However, we all know that internet made everything no boundaries.I keep mentioning radio whereas with current technology, all our ON AIR moments can be video taped and uploaded and featured on our web, so imagine the combination of audio, video & text to transform a community made possible by internet. When we talk about technology, boys will be more adaptive, however LEADER's module attract both girls and boys.
Each year, we can always add new interested schools along with the increase number of teachers. And beginning of August 2012, two schools have shown interest in LEADER ABC, they are EHIPASSIKO SCHOOL&NUSA INDAH SCHOOL.
What is your projected impact over the next 1-3 years?
Upon completion of 3 academic years in JABODETABEK, I hope to apply this extracurricular activity outside Jakarta and not until after 5 year, we can replicate this after school activity model in abroad and still using the branding LEADER ABC.
The next 3 years, I hope LEADER’s radio internet can penetrate to youngsters overseas, so we aim to bring the world to Indonesia and obviously bring Indonesia to the world. This model can be multiplied by schools around the world by adopting LEADER ABC module and by connecting through radio internet, we can actually create global movement together.
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
Success is defined differently depending in which stage. Right now my success is to find 2 schools to collaborate within this first academic school. After a year then success is when LEADER can create more buy-in into LEADER ABC project in all over Indonesia. And 3-5 years, success is when we can introduce this idea to schools abroad which can also generate income for LEADER as an organization.
There are only two things I believe; patience and money. With money we can have and choose resources; human resources, broadcast equipments & internet facility. To generate money, it takes a lot of communications process: selling ideas, proposals, make connections, networking, etc. I am working on it right now, but patience is the hardest one. Only time can tell how someone can endure.
