Explain your idea in details:

Drug abuse is among of the major problem facing people at youth and adult age.Example in our country Tanzania, from a statistical research almost 5% up to 12% of primary and secondary students at the age of 12 up to 18 years are involved in illicit drugs and the number of this young dreamers rise. So i decided to come up with an idea of creating a device and more ever a mobile application so as a parent or a guardian can use them to determine if they are children have taking any illicit drugs because it is hard to determine if an individual is using illicit drug user until he or she become addicted to the drugs. And for the matter of innovation i have start a Facebook page known as "Against Drug"

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Mostly my idea is based on helping youth and adult aged people but my target are students, this is because most of us students when we reach puberty stage always we want to try some new stuffs in our lives and when we are at school we interact with people from different places with different behaviors, which lead to the adaption of behaviors from those people but mostly of behaviors we adapt are bad behaviors which may include the use of illicit drugs. And in sustainable development goals it will help goal No.3 which is "good health and well being" and goal No.4 "Quality education"

Hello fellow passenger,You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.Thanks once again and all the best for the futureRegards, Team GreenSpace

Hello,Being a part of India's well known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.But before it's implementation, you need to do a "pre-mortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.Wishing you the best,Team GreenSpace.

August 27, 2017 15:13

Hello dear members of the entrepreneurship community,I hope you will join us too and learn the GU universal communication system and the Gadaa system practices when the platform and the system implementations are complete and fully ready for use.

The idea is great, and I think we really need that kind of projects everythere. I have a close person who has problems with illicit drugs and I know a little about how it affects people and surrounding. I am also very interested in specifc mechanism of how the mobile app will work to identify addicts. Do you already have a picture of the process?

Hello Bryan!Great idea! I admire your effort to see to the eradication of illicit drugs' usage. How will your device work? Will the children know when their parents use the device on them? I wish you, success!

August 11, 2017 04:00

I am really happy to see a 17 years old man (I am 17 either) who is concerned about business and most important about helping people. Even though you have a too big fund request, I am sure that if you want, you will achieve your goals and keep continue to dream. Make a little profit strategy and try to make a team to sustain you on this path. Best wishes,Andrei

July 13, 2017 22:45

Hy BryanThank you for thinking of others and trying to find a solution you are facing.we are also having problems of drug abuse amongst the youth here in South Africa.none the less I can't see how testing would reduce the intake.this will only leaf to conflicts in households or the children running away from home.as for the Facebook page,well done.try on getting lessons,facts and knowledge about drug abuse so that you may easily answer questions arising and solutions to your users problems otherwise try collaborating with professionals who can answer and refer.good luck

July 12, 2017 14:48

Hi Bryan,I like the motivation behind your idea, I see you're dissatisfied with the current happenings and really want to create a chnage.Despite the urgency to create this change, I'd advice you be a little more composed and restructure your idea.For example,be a little more specific and detailed about the app you want to create, it's functionality, and how it will help addicts.For short, just try and restructure everything,I see you making a change.Kind regards,Seth.

July 12, 2017 03:37

Good Luck Bryan with your idea. It is truly wonderful that you care about youth health. The most common method is called "Mouth Swab" This test indicates if a person did intake drug or no. So having a mobile application that could do this is impressive. But do you think this is a good approach? It could lead parents to take extremely strict measures if they find out their kids are on drugs. Also, there are some countries where parents can not force children more than 18 years old. I advise you to have rehab centers as your customers too. It will help them a lot Best, Aseel
