Your idea
Will you launch your idea as a business or non-profit?

What will be the impact of your idea? 

The impact of our idea will affect the social conditions of underprivileged children and not only stimulate their creativity, but will offer working children new ways of income.

Furthermore our idea will prepare children for an independent future and achieve the goals of self-reliance, financial independence and social integration.

By learning more about digital technologies many children may get a chance to find alternate means of income, rather than working e.g. in a gold mine or in a factory.

Who will help you develop your idea? Why are you the one to make this happen?

Our team consists currently of seven people with backgrounds in software engineering, graphic design, video and film editing, eShop management, publishing, music production and arts. We also stay in contact with a few “celebrities”, who would be happy to support us morally and financially.

How much will it cost to launch your idea? (This can be an estimate)

Each creative competition will cost approx. 1500-3000$, depending on various factors (How remote is the school/NGO we would like to help? How long does our volunteer stay there? How much equipment will be used?)

Definite expenses include the costs for the multimedia lab (laptop, software, digital camera, microphone, soundcard etc.), the travel expenses and the costs of accommodation for the volunteer. Other costs include the maintenance of the “virtual” office (server space, provider, multimedia applications etc.)
