Explain your idea in details:

The degradation of the environment, especially the deforestation by the use of the solid fuel in the kitchen in Madagascar is a major ecologic problem, a drought, a disappearance of numerous animal and plant species, the food in security, the immigration and unemployment. Thus that will it take place in 12 years if each of us does not take measure? For it that I had the initiative to create this HARMONY'S GAPED project. The main objective is to increase the standard of living of the target population and the environmental protection. This project will take place in the region of Alaotra Mangoro where is the main source of the production of the charcoal in several regions in the country. Thus we have to replace this activity in Beekeeping. The difference with regard to the other activity of the same fate, it is that the projects or the associations rest only the beekeepers already existed but the persons in charge of the deforestation still continue their activity. The beekeeping is a source of currency which can assure the lives of several families and their allow to protect the forest. With regard to the coal which gives 950 $ on average by the years and cause the disease of the lung, this new activity obtains more income which gives 10 500 $ on average by the years with 20 hives and the pollination contribute enormously to the agriculture. If we improve just a little the quality of this honey, free trade of the international trade is still available. The works do not set a lot of time and people can do complementary work. The local community is grouped in an association so that he can have solidarity, a responsibility and a respect for the common good.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This project improves the local standard of living of the population and protects the environment. When the money of people increases their purchasing power will increase. Thus, the target people can: buy of solar panel and gas (renewable energy) to replace coals tell, to god in the food in security, educated those children, look after the sick and to build a sustainable house. The forest becomes a part of the life of the local community and they are obliged to protect her. A lot of species can live in symbiosis in the biodiversity. The species of bees will be saved when his decline worried many scientists. The existence of this beekeeping is beneficial for the agriculture. In example, According to the INRA, the 84 % production of the species cultivated in Europe depends directly on pollinators, which more than 90 % of the domestic and wild bees. The apiarian products are al soused in the medicine to make a therapy and also in the cosmetic. When the forest is protected, there is no more erosion. The local population would become united, helps, person in charge, respect the common good and was civilized. To estimate the success, the botanist, the agronomist, the sociologist and the entomologist shod descents all the month during the first year and every 3 months during the next years so that they can make of follow-up and evaluation and bring solutions when there are problems. The data brought by these multidisciplinary people show the successes of the project: if the number of the people will enter this activity people increase and who make of the activity of the coal decrease more than 50 %. Accordingly, the numbers of surface covered by forests increase and the population in the urban area uses of gas for the kitchen.

The second stage is the transition between the harvests which realized of the food crop. Finally, the third stage, it is period of harvest in April and in September and this is when the beekeepers pay off the credits of the equipments empreinter for the food crop. The second cycle consists in the total refund all of the prizes of the supplied equipments. In the third cycle, the association mother makes sensitive of other association, gives her trainings and equipments, and to make the same stage as them.

Hi ANDRIAMAMPIANINA Rija Hasina,

This is seriously a critical issue. Deforestation leads pollution at rapid speed in our environment just because of human greediness.Your idea of bee keeper directly relates with forest and for that you(we) must have to save the forest and need to enrich them, too. Your objective will help to reduce poverty. A very good initiative.

It's really a nice idea. The way you designed it is much appreciable and compatible with the sustainable developments goals. However, I have some queries about your project:

1. What was your motivation behind conceiving the idea?
2. How much manpower do you currently have in your project?
3. Do you get any govt support ?
4. Do you think a non-profit can survive even without the help of government support?
5. How do you envision your project in the next 5 years?
6. How are you going to involve young minds in your project?

Thank you.

Dear Andriama,
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.

Thanks to you all for your remark, Im going to answer in your question in a general way.
First of all, what motivated me to realize this project is this Albert Einstein's quotation " The world will not be destroyed by those who hurt but by those who look at them without doing anything ".
- we already have potential partners who wish to collaborate with us: companies which supply equipments and which are going to collect the apiarian products (JAEL beekeeping S.A.R.L), trainers (Beautiful honey of Amoron' i Mania), Sensitizing environmental (TSARAFARA association) and
- When there is not charcoal, everyone are automatically going to use the renewable energy

August 10, 2018 17:20

Dear Andriama,
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.

Its a good Idea, I agree that the environmental protection is the base of the sustainable development, to protect the environment to reduce the emission. of greenhouse gases. I encourage you to realize your project. Bees in Madagascar are very threatened, it is fast necessary to protect them and to multiply them because 80 % of the pollination of basic food are made by bees.

August 8, 2018 15:41

Dear Andria,
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.
Happy Day

Hi Hasina,

Regarding Plans for implementation and sustainability;
I think you still need to make a business plan to make sure your idea can sustain. providing sustainable business model also can higher your chance to engage with other stake holder. Bussiness model not only about finacing, but many other aspect for example who is your target, who is your potenstial partner, how will you engaged with your target and partner, etc

My idea, "Poopook; Fecal Sludge and Organic Waste derived Fertilizer", was nominated for the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition in the Best Ideas 2018 category.
