Explain your idea in details:

Nigeria has over 60% of her population as youth, yet there is a skill gap for infrastructure deliver of over 80 million persons. Most of these youths are desirous to be gainfully employed, but due to poverty, poor education, social disparities, they find it difficult to get jobs, earn a living, and build their wealth legitimately. Cost of Living is also becoming expensive with rising rural-urban migration. Conferences and Training for Inclusive, Sustainable Habitat in Africa (CATFISH Africa) is an idea that will educate citizens about the need for affordable, resilient, and sustainable communities through series of training, workshops, and conferences. The training and workshops would be either on Capacity Development Program (CDP) where youths are better equipped to become employees, or an Enterprise Development Program (EDP) where youths are better equipped to start a trade using their acquired skills. CATFISH Africa aims at reaching out to the communities to educate youths (both male and female) on skills such as masonry, plastering, carpentry, tiling, painting, ceiling installations, flooring, plumbing, electrical installations, solar power generations, etc., which would in turn boost the skill sets needed to achieve Goal 11 and many other goals of the SDG's. CATFISH Africa will partner with trade unions and certification bodies to issue competency certificates for the training and workshops, as well as an online construction portal where trained youths can be merged with construction companies, organizations, and individuals needing their services. CATFISH Africa would also organize an Annual Conference on Affordable, Inclusive, and Sustainable Habitat in Africa. The conference objective is to bring together professionals of the built environment, including government agencies, technology firms, manufacturing organizations, trade unions, and citizens, so as to enable active engagement among stakeholders and an improved formulation of policies, products, finance, and ideas for more resilient, safe, inclusive and sustainable communities.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

CATFISH Africa aims at using SDG Goal 11 to achieve other SDG's. The target is to educate 100,000 youths annually over the next five years to become skilled workforce in building affordable, inclusive, resilient, safe, and sustainable communities. This in turn translates to an annual 100,000 youths or more having opportunities to be free from poverty and help their families too as they get employed or start their businesses, free from hunger and malnutrition as they can afford nutritious meals, having good health and well-being through our HSE imbibed programs, improve their literacy through our continuous development program, respect female gender who are engaged and trained alongside males, install sustainable and clean energy solutions such as solar for communities, build resilient infrastructure and affordable communities, among other Goals. The conference also targets converging over 2,000 delegates annually to network, and proffer solutions to building affordable, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable communities across Africa. A measure of the success of this target would be based on the number, feedback, and implementation outcomes of the event by delegates and their communities.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

CATFISH Africa would be a social enterprise with team made up of full time staff, part time staff, and volunteers in 1:2:3 ratio. As a Social Enterprise, the business model is to generate revenue to handle operation cost through fees paid for training and workshops, sales of construction equipment and materials, tickets paid for conference, exhibitions, sponsorship, grants and donations. A website, social media handles, fliers distributions, event management portals, and other contact functions would be a means of engaging youths to be part of our training and workshop, finding sponsorship and donations, as well as getting delegates for conference. There would also be collaborations with trade unions, certification agencies, media agencies, and an online marketplace for Artisans, so as to validate CATFISH Africa's activities, boost credibility and recognition, as well as provide easy access to jobs by youth trained.

Your profile

My name is Okpala Emmanuel Chika. I am 27 years old and from Nigeria. I had my undergraduate degree in Architecture in 2012, where I graduated as the best student of the faculty of environmental sciences. Moved by the desires to contribute immensely to SDG Goal 11, I enrolled for a Master in Urban Design program of which I just concluded few months back in 2018. I have a strong background in construction. My years of experience managing construction sites, I have had a major challenge of sourcing for the right team of Artisans who could deliver quality construction jobs at cost effective rates. Truly, it was difficult. With a growing skill gap in the construction and infrastructural delivery sector, I saw a need to engage more youths by training them on quality construction procedures which would in turn boost safe and sustainable communities. I have decided to start CATFISH Africa, as an engine to put my background in Architecture, Urban Design, and Construction Management to good use, for the benefits of Africa's growing population. I am a strong advocate of SDG Goal 11, as believe achieving Goal 11 means achieving all 17 Goals.

Sustainable development have the main objective to create a balance in the three main components in development, namely society, economy (profit) and the environment.And if you don't mind I want to share you about that in my idea, where I want to improve the character to be better through photos, share knowledge about the art of photography, workshop, and competition (society), creating a sustainable business by paying attention to the environment, such as buying and selling photos, selling photographic equipment, selling frames that are eco-friendly, creating jobs for frame makers (economy and environment).

Dear my friend,

1. Thank you for your response to my question. Business is about your existence. It is what you like and with that you are useful. The business is not how rich you are, but more about how happiness you will be. Money is just the impact of what you do, your function is your goal.

Greetings Friend,

Happy to meet you through this competition!!! and i have learnt many things by going through your idea.
The efforts you have taken to bring up this idea is stupendous and inspiring many budding entrepreneurs like me. We are competitors just for the sake of this competition, but on a broader picture we all are the future reformers and businessmen/ businesswomen. We shall be proud of ourselves as we are not selfish to think only about money earning, instead we integrate the talent with a Sustainable development goals and that is really commendable and a rarity in this generation. We as a whole set an example to various other budding entrepreneurs and make them feel that "Think Good Be Good Live Good". As i say in all my presentations "We should preserve nature for it to preserve us" and we are contributing to that saying someway or other, like in the form saving nature, changing people lives, changing the way we think and fostering humanity in each and every person.

So my dear friend, i hope this relationship with you will last long post this competition too as i believe the concept of group play, so we help eachother in putting forward the ideas to a better use. As a starting step of group play i have provided some motivational comments to u and i would be more than happy if you could find time and reciprocate some motivational comments too, as we both are sailing the same boat we know the pains we go through....

All the best for your future and stay healthy and happy.... :)

Dear Emmanuel,
1. Business requires a passion. Without passion, business is inanimate object. Business is not seen how much profit you gets in the future, but how strongly you can survives in the business. Business is about learning, not planted and abandoned, and hopes to grow big just like that. Businesses require special treatment by maintaining commitment and consistency, and seeing it grow big slowly.
2. And in connection with that statement, what are your expectations and the extent of your efforts to develop and maintain your ideas / projects?
3. Would you share with me about that through the link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/

Thanks for sharing

I do applaud your way of social entrepreneurship my dear friend.Good luck and keep up the good work.
Thanks The major brunt of the monopoly of big pharma companies is felt by the poor and middle income population.
In scarcity of sufficient funds,they are unable to get best quality medication and eventually have to cash-in their life savings.
This not only puts them but their whole family on the line of poverty.

Dear Emmanuel,
1. In connection with my previous questions about your idea or project, one way to achieve our goals and objectives continuously is to collaborate. There is a saying that to achieve our goals quickly is to do it yourself, but if you want to do it for a long-term purpose, working together is one of the most important things. My next question are:
a. Does your idea or project do the same thing?
b. With whom do you cooperate?
c. What is the form of cooperation you offer with them?
2. I am very happy if you will share with me and please give me comments or advise on my ideas about this through the link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/ Thanks.

Hey Emmanuel,

Dear Emmanuel,
1. Previously thank you for your response and explanation for my previous question. I really appreciate your thoughts. If you dont mind, I want to ask what is the difference between your ideas and projects from others? or is there a specific theme of your idea or project?
2. I want to share my idea about "Eco-Cretivephoto Studio" called ec-studio. My business idea is through a hobby that I have done in one creative entrepreneurship like art photography. Through Eco-Creativephoto Studio, I want to educate people to change their characters for the better through photos. Through photos, there are people who can say something, communicate and speak and the most important thing to get good photos is the skills needed, patience and focus. My idea is collaboration between the concept of art photography, business, the concept of sustainable ethics and educational skills and development towards sustainability. This is what differentiates my ideas from others. If you want to share with me, please open this link: https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/16/9530/ Thank you.

Wish you all the best.

Hello Gallant,

Thank you so much for your trust on CATFISH Africa's success. Your review made me think more about the Idea and I greatly appreciate it.

The training is expected to be done monthly running for three weekends in a month for each set of trainees. The goal is to have it run on all municipalities concurrently starting from Lagos Nigeria.

Also, success evaluation is based on the number of citizens trained successfully, the number of trained citizens gainfully employed or engaged, and the affordability and quality feedback gotten on their performance.

The Conference would be an annual conference and would be held at different cities annually.

Thanks you so much for your Comments. Can we work together as a team on our projects?

Warm regards,
Emmanuel Okpala

Emmanuel Chika Okpala was my colleague in a reputable and highly quality-driven construction firm. Despite the almost unbeatable target of the working environment, Emmanuel emerged as one of the young best hand. With this knowledge of him, I reserve no doubt recommending him for this program.

July 12, 2018 09:29

This idea is great! Capacity building projects are important to alot of nations, especially developing countries. Your idea covers it all, its strategic and has a good target of 100,000 youths. I believe your idea deserves support both physical and financial.
Iam dropping you my vote, kindly read my idea and drop me your vote and review.

July 12, 2018 06:35

A beautiful idea ... Training and integrating young people into the work environment will create a strong unemployment-free society. I propose to make a job placement fairs for the professions that young people have learned

July 12, 2018 04:32

Hallo Emmanuel/Okpala

Your CATFISH Africa program is outstanding and inspirational to make a better life for the people. Your training and workshop idea should run well if there are no obstacles which could hamper you. But, i have question about your idea "How many times do you want to hold this program in a single place?". Because if we want to hold these events, it's not effective if it just holds once or twice. Then, do you have any parameter and evaluation of success to measure your program?. Thank you.

Best Regard,

too have posted a project idea within this youth citizen entrepreneurship.

Your project idea is very inspiring and perhaps there is a way that we can work together to benefit both of us and ultimately the people we want to help/work with on their journeys toward more knowledge, power, control and happiness in their lives.

However there are ways we can help each other out right now within this youth citizen entrepreneurship competition
Are you aware that each of us here within the youth citizen entrepreneurship can be become members of each other's teams?

It is not hard to do and it is a good thing to do so that you and I can each share with each other and show the community that we are working together in support of each other - since there are so many things we share in common as far as what we want our projects to do for our peoples.

I would be happy to become a team member with you in support of your project, if you would like to do the same with me.

Once we make that kind of connection then we can proceed ahead as the next few months unfold in support of each other and our projects.

It's a pleasure to meet you in this environment. It is good and challenging to be here reaching out around the globe to others in support of a better life and a better world for us all.

Enjoy your day!

Dear Minda,

Thank you so much for your review. Indeed training the youths is the most feasible way to meet skill gap for infrastructural delivery. I'm delighted you agree to that.

Cheers!

July 12, 2018 00:08

Dear Mr. Resedenz,

Thanks for your feedback. Your comment motivates me to do more. The model for CATFISH Africa is to bring our training to citizens, thus we hope to replicate the idea across Africa.

We should have more ideas like this all the time, and over time we will mitigate barriers in unemployment. In time, it can also be extended to all areas of work.

July 11, 2018 17:33

Hi,
Very good idea. You want to improve youth skills in your country. So that youth can be better prepared for their lives, let alone you will provide competence certificates to youth who attend training and workshops. Good luck
