Explain your project in details:

The Children's Radio Channel will combine technology, media, activism and entertainment to support growth of under-served children in Sierra Leone. The 'channel' will focus on education, advocacy, jobs/training and fund raising 1. EDUCATION: Children who could not access mainstream formal education and even those in schools, would benefit from simplified lectures prepared by qualified teachers and aired on the radio. Civic education is part of it. 2. ADVOCACY: It will serve as the hub through which children could communicate their concerns and a platform for child rights activists to advocate for the welfare of the children. 3. JOBS/TRAINING: Young people will have the opportunity to receive first hand media training and employment. This radio will serve as a national children's center providing mentor-ship for children that would not be fortunate for hands-on training and employment. 4. FUND RAISING: Advertisement and sponsored programs would not only generate funds to sustain the radio but will further boost financial capability to provide scholarships and medical interventions for children. GOALS/OBJECTIVES: The goal is to enable needy children to access formal education outside the mainstream educational system. Objectives include: 1. To enhance access to the general curriculum and measurably increase the interest of children in education through the introduction of a new form of teaching and education. 2. To serve as the advocacy center for children and provide platform for stakeholders to discuss issues affecting children. 3. To serve as a major fundraising platform for onward interventions including payment of school fees and purchase of drugs and medical tools to support quality healthcare. 4. To ease challenges associated with hands-on job experiences for children who would have attained some form of education, especially above primary level. The radio center will provide internship enrollment, on-the-job training and jobs for employable youth.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Access to affordable and accessible education is generally essential for sustainable development. Providing education for children at various levels will immensely mould them for the future. Teaching and learning on radio will contribute towards improving early childhood education as the classes would be customized to attract the interest of the child. It will further contribute towards the achieving the universal primary education goal in addition to providing life skills for young people. This project will also improve adult literacy and the general quality of education in the country. It will also serve as an alternative means of teaching and learning, thereby improving quality education.. It is generally known that a literate society is less prone to poverty. This project will therefore reduce the poverty level in the society in addition to bridging the inequality gap in the formal educational system. Job creation and training will also complement efforts towards sustainable development. MEASURES TO EVALUATE SUCCESS Apart from airing these lectures on radio, mechanisms will also be put in place to ensure that community centres in deprived communities host children in these communities with a loud radio set and a physical conductor present in the center to lead the children through the radio lectures. To access impact, those that would be taking parts in the community center sessions would be registered and made to take exams over a period of two or three terms in a year. Similar general exams would be conducted in various communities that will attract any child who had been independently following the lectures. Prizes would be put in place for children that will excel in these examinations. Those prizes will include scholarships and micro-financing for the parents

Sustainability and future plans

Initial funding for the purchase of the transmitter is already available through donations towards the project. We are currently working towards attracting partners in education and general children's issues to ensure a successful kickoff. Advertisement on the radio including sponsored programs will form a significant base for future revenue generation. We are also currently discussing plans to set up a social enterprise that could be generating funds to keep the project alive. The project will start in the capital city with plans to gradually extend it to provincial areas as and when the funds are available.

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 future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

I am wishing you to be a successful person.

Dear Fellow participant,

You have done well thus far. Only few people will venture relentlessly into the things in which their instincts proposes because sometimes the goal appears too crazy to achieve, so they just retreat.

Actually, someone has said that "The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

You may have seen this before but I want to remind you that it's true, only those who are "crazy enough" eventually get results.

Congratulations for been "crazy enough" (seeing beyond normal and following your dreams despite the odds)...

Best wishes,
Seth

Also,

Remember it's not over until it's over.
It may be just a few days to the end of the competition but it's not the end of your dreams
There's still a lot you can achieve.
Stay focused.

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 "premortem" 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.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copy the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.

Thank you so much Adam and Kevin for your brilliant and supportive comments.

Kevin, we see this as the pilot phase and when succeed, we will most definitely consider replicating it to other countries as a child's right anywhere is a child's right everywhere.

Adam, we have a low percentage really of about 40 percent of young people listening to radio. That notwithstanding, we know that the young people of Sierra Leone also show interest in programs of this nature that will benefit them. So the radio project will definitely enhance their interest in radio listening. Apart from this, the community segment of the project will get these young people in community centers with a facilitator and loud radio set whenever the classes are being aired on radio. We also intend to supply radio sets to kids in deprived communities.
Outside of all the aforementioned, we have always been reaching out to young people by providing scholarships.

June 14, 2017 20:27

Hello,

Your goals for your project are extremely innovative and creative as radio is a great way to connect to individuals. What is the percentage of youth who listen to the radio in Sierra Leone? And also, do you plan on reaching out to youth who may not have access to a radio?

June 14, 2017 04:47

Dear Abdul
Hi,
I like your project the interest in educating children with low economic resources is great, children need education is a right and are the future of each country.
I hope you go forward
I have a question
Do you have plans to take this project to other countries?

Education is a key component of sustainable development and this project can help the rural kids to have access to good quality education prepared by qualified teachers who should have been hard to come and teach those kids.

Thanks Jacmen K for the inspiration. On the pilot phase, the project would be directly targeting 1,000 children in ten communities yearly. These children in deprived communities would be registered formally with trained volunteers in the communities to assemble them at various community centers in the community where a loud enough public address system would transmit the message from the radio to them with the aid of the volunteer. They would be made to take exams to produce to next stages at agreed intervals. Those who perform well would also be identified for scholarships to be enrolled to formal schools. Indirectly, the project targets all children in areas where the radio transmitter can reach. These set of children would also be made to take exams at the end of each academic year.

Hello Abdul,

Adocating for chlidren's education through radio channel is great. I encourage you to continue in this way. But I am a bit concerned about how those children who have never been to school can follow the courses aired on the channel? Is there a way out for them? How many children would like to reach out a year?

Congrats!
Jacmen K.

Thanks Louison for your comment and inquiries. Well, initial plans are to purchase a CORD PRINTING PRESS which would be used for commercial purposes in a country operating over 60 newspapers with barely seven commercial printers. This would generate funds on daily basis to support the operations of the radio channel. The printing press would also be used to print children's related documents at a cost recovery basis in other to support stakeholders working with children.The printing press will further provide jobs for young people.
