Way to well being !
Explain your idea in details:
To fill in the education gap we all have. All school systems , no matter how innovative these may claim to be , fail to teach personal growth. Personal growth in terms of growing in all dimensions of life like mind, body, soul , work and human connections. Purpose is to eliminate the limitlessness of quality education to academic and career orientated education only. Quality education has to go beyond academics and help facilitate students to reach their full potential. The objective of this idea is to produce or infact facilitate the complete growth of individuals so they do not end up being paralyzed adults. The best way to put this is to work upon younger minds rather than repairing adult minds. Its better to set a stable foundation rather than fixing emotional issues all over again for adults. The whole idea or the motivation behind this idea is to minimize the emotional pain and agony of adulthood by introducing emotional intelligence to students at an early age. The activities involved in this business model can be curated initially. All the training material of emotional intelligence/well being can be outsourced and further processed. Today we have ample of quality psychotherapists and life coaches who can be outsourced to create and curate content that helps to unfold or remove the emotional blocks to learning , keeping in mind the age group of students. The approach that might best suit to execute this idea is the learning technique of blended learning. This approach of blended learning can help make this idea more scalable and also suitable for a self paced and individualized learning.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Emotional intelligence or well being is for sure intangible in nature and therefore difficult to measure. Since we are dealing with a business idea , the evaluation of success has to be an essential part of the business idea. There might be two ways to evaluate the success of this model. 1) Short term 2) Long term Short term success evaluation might take into consideration the different levels of being non conformist and the ability to question the existing beliefs in all walks of life. This might tell a lot about how well the child is growing and exploring and is well connected at a personal level. However in the long run , we might carry forward the initial results right uptil the adulthood of these children to witness their success as adults in terms of how happy they end up being with the choices they made in life. The target is to make it scalable and reach all classes of society. The objective is to fill the education gap we all have irrespective of our social class. Initially I guess its the masses who are in most need to get in touch with their true selves from an early age. Reason being that they hardly get the right exposure to explore and reach their full potential later in life. However , the top tier of the society has the exactly same need. The only difference is that they have better chances of self educating themselves in all other areas of life as adults.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I have not yet developed any business model,financing sources and collaborators so far.
I am Jennifer Joyce Samuel ,a Roman Catholic originating from Karachi Pakistan. I have been born and brought up in Pakistan. My schooling is from a Convent School in Karachi. Later I completed my Masters in Economics from The University of Karachi in 2008. Right after graduating and having a degree in Economics , my first job preference was to enter the banking industry. To my surprise I discovered that the job market only had sales related jobs for fresh graduates in Economics. After giving much thought , I finally came to a decision of taking a 360 degree turn and joining the teaching industry. The intention of joining the teaching industry was to stick to my academic education but more over serving the younger generation at a larger scale. Basically to be more impactful in terms of giving my share of services for a greater cause to spread education and moral value system that I gathered from my catholic schooling. This is how I ended up choosing the profession of teaching over banking. The only motivation of doing so was to choose quality work over a job that was more of a status symbol and low in terms of the quality of the work. The motivation to work for a greater purpose and for the benefit of younger minds at large made me explore multiple teaching opportunities. The best amongst all was the opportunity of working as a content developer in a technology education startup company. This was something I totally loved and it just opened my horizons to work towards the betterment of education at a larger scale.
