Explain your project in details:

iEducate is a two-part mentorship and economic capacity building program for the creation of life long leaning opportunities. A first part motivational session is done to work on the poor "psyche" and mentality of the youth to believe in their own abilities, and regardless their backgrounds. This inspires the participants, to believe in their dormant innate potentials. This is critical, as it reposes self-belief and confidence, that propels them to maximize their potentials and gain a positive outlook of life. The second part includes a vocational skills training phase with an accomplished volunteer entrepreneur (who has succeeded in life despite the obstacle of poverty) who trains them in a vocation. Since its inception, more than hundred and forty (140) and still counting) young individuals have been trained and empowered with a source of income and livelihood skills from different deprived communities in Ghana. This has impacted lives on the grassroots level and contributed in the overall development of capacity building in my country as well help in achieving an aspect of the Sustainable Development. The most critical element this project seeks to address id to provide economic empowerment to youngsters whose background has prevented them from fully climbing to the highest point of the educational ladder. It clearly reduces the risk of unemployment resulting from low academic qualifications. This helps in maintaining a productive lifestyle of the youngsters. This project addresses SDG goal 1 of No Poverty. This helps reduce the financial burden and the can even save up money with time and further their education. iEducate is an informal education tool that promotes the education for Sustainable Development, the breakdown simply refers to using school drop-out to become economically stable. The innovative approach used is what I refer as: The Impact Triangle. A triangle in the sense that it is a project.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

This has impacted lives on the grassroots level and contributed in the overall development of capacity building in my country as well help in achieving an aspect of the Sustainable Development. Forty (40) have been trained and certified in Millinery, forty (40) have also been trained in bead making. Another sixty(60) have been trained in the making of accessories. The most critical element this project seeks to address id to provide economic empowerment to youngsters whose background has prevented them from fully climbing to the highest point of the educational ladder. It clearly reduces the risk of unemployment resulting from low academic qualifications. This helps in maintaining a productive lifestyle of the youngsters. This project addresses SDG goal 1 of No Poverty. All the hand made products made during the training are sold by the youths. This helps reduce the financial burden and the can even save up money with time and further their education. This is a business model training in entrepreneurship. The project has chalked a lot of successes with respect to impact. As a result of our achievements we have won some good recognition. In March 2017, we were selected by UNESCO MGIEP to represent Ghana in Ottawa for the UNESCO week on Peace and Education For Sustainable Development conference. In one of the orphanages where we visited; the participants are currently in the businesses of making fashion accessories that are sold to visiting individuals to the home. We were also selected to partake in British Councils Blazing Trails program. We also won second place in AIEs My Education In Africa challenge. The mentorship aspect has also reposed a lot of confidence in the young people. The have moved from self-pity to self-belief which results in a positive behavioral and attitudinal change. Some of these young people have changed their lives.

Sustainability and future plans

iEducate has the potentials of solving a big challenge in Ghana if rolled out in a bigger nationwide scale. This is because it will provide sustainable lifelong learning opportunity, employability skills and entrepreneurship for a large number of school drop-out and generally young people with no real job and source of income; from both rural and deprived regions across the country. Targeting a segment of marginalized groups such as the physically challenged is also a part of our vision for the project on the nearest future. There is a vision to have a fully established training facility within two demarcated regions in the country. I.e. the Northern segment and Southern segment. With real structures, it will be much easier to train more youth and in more varied vocations. This will also ensure a more intensive training period to achieve the utmost effectiveness. The facility will also create a digital and physical platform where products and service under the projects can sold to create economic stability and sustainability for the project. With the said nationwide vision and scale up, we would require 10000 dollars/ per year. But this will yield a good turnover profit from sale of products and services. This vision will ensure the creation of more sustainable communities in Ghana. iEducate is an informal learning platform that promotes self-discovery, self-improvement, skills and vocational acquisition alongside Mentorship and Life Coaching. It is geared at inculcating the youth with I am Great mentality and an I can Do It spirit. The project uses a bit of interactive learning for problem solving, coupled with participatory practices. In line with interactive Learning, the approach is used to solve the problem of socio-economic challenges of teenage school drop-outs. The problem is for these young people to be actively engaged and empowered with employability skills.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

Amma Serwaa Frimpong is a 28 year old compassionate Marketing graduate with a strong resolve to the the change she desires for her country. Her passion to impact as much lives as possible led her to start iVolunteer Ghana, a non funded non profit organization focused on the development of Ghana especially in areas of education through acts of volunteerism. ieducate is a flagship project under the NGO that mentors young persons as well as building capacity by providing vocational skills training and this is like with her flagship project in education dubbed the project "iEducate". Her efforts and drive has led her to win awards and recognition. She was Ghanas representative for the 2017 UNESCO week on "Education for Peace and Sustainable Development". She is also certified "Trail Blazer" by the British Council. She is also an awardee for the project: "My Education in Africa Challenge" by AIE. She was part of the top twelve participants of Opportunity Desk's "Worldwide Impact Challenge". Her exposure to poverty in her early years as a young girl formed a great influence on her persona and perspective as a magnanimous individual. Hence, growing up, she volunteered on community projects, worked with different NGOs as well as rural areas. The interest in setting iVolunteer Ghana however started as a result of a project she carried out in a rural village in Ghana; where she was exposed to poverty and its devastating effects mostly in the areas of Education and Health. Unfortunately in my country, access to education is for a privileged few instead of a fundamental human right. The idea is that, if u impact the livesof one person and they go on to do same there will be ripple effect of the change we all desire.

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

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)...

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.
