“Ryadeh” curriculum for Entrepreneurs and free online educational platform for entrepreneurs
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
In general the project was able to achieve its goals through: Raise awareness among youth, and local community of the importance of small enterprises and providing them with the basic skills to establish their own work and how to seek funding for it. It is the only program that presents an integrated solution through training and job creation; in the face of joining armed groups as an alternative to secure income. The Local community involved in the restoration of livelihoods and the importance of youth job creation by encouraging the trainees to propose their ideas, and engage them in addressing local needs. In order to build support among Syrian youth and enhance their engagement in developing enterprise solutions to the countrys challenges SEF has developed the quality of its work through: Measuring the effectiveness of teacher training workshops by assessing the depth and quality of participation and the results of post-workshop questionnaires. Assessing instructors ability to implement the course, as demonstrated by the number of locations and students reached. Assessing the effectiveness of the entrepreneurship course by measuring improvements in students levels of knowledge, understanding and attitudes through pre- and post-evaluation questionnaires and targeted interviews. Evaluating the impact of the business plan competition by measuring the levels and quality of participation among alumni of the courses and by monitoring the progress in implementing business plans. Students testimonies: We have capabilities that we didnt know we had, Before, I had stopped planning for the future, a student said, But after the first session of the course, I want to have a future. Beyond imparting tangible skills the students can use to improve their current living situation, the course empowers young Syrians to engage constructively in the countrys transformation and contribute to a more democratic future.
Sustainability and future plans
SEF developed a powerful solution to stop the Syrian emigration from inside Syria and the regional refugees camps to Europe and other parts of the world, the major pillar of this solution is the rehabilitation of Syrian workforce by SEFs Ryadeh educational Syrian program. SEF set a challenging target to reach Syrians in diaspora by launching an online platform Taalum.net in order to scale the free access of its Ryadeh entrepreneurship curriculum. Moreover SEF will play an additional important role by providing mentorship and consulting support for its alumni community by establishing SEF HUB. SEF aims to launch SEF Cube as an incubator to train and prepare university students for their after graduation life journey, it will allow the students to work in teams and execute a complete project from A to Z, in addition SEF gives the students proper managerial and marketing mentorship in accordance to their projects. SEF proposed business model considers the project royalty for SEF, i.e. SEF is the all copyright owner of the products as it consider it a work made for hire, and it will be clearly highlighted that the project was developed by the students mentioning their names, contact information and a link to their professional profile, this will be part of marketing the students themselves, yet this will not give the students any copyright ownership as joint works, composite works, or collective work. SEF wants to partner with different universities in order to attract more students and earn legitimacy for its project. This proposed combination allows to create business and employment opportunities, it will introduce the students to labor market properly at early stages. However still SEF needs a generous donor for the first two years startup phase for its Incubator, Hub and online platform.
