VIRTUALBOOKS AND AUDIOBOOKS FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER AND OTHER DISEASES AT ALL HOSPITALS
Explain your idea in details:
This project will bring to children at hospitals a hope of life. Government and hospitals around the world must implement the use of "tablet" devices in the rooms of the hospitals of children, with an application that will bring joy and happiness to them; so they can have the opportunity to open this application and find a wide access to stories of writters around the world, so it can improve their interest to live and forget their diseases for a while. This application will offer them a dinamic way to interact also by the audiobooks, when they are trying to sleep.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
This idea wants to be in the rooms of children and young people (18 years old). It will be implemented in public and private hospitals. So, this is not a project that only people and families that have money can access to, it´s also and mainly for people and families of low incomes, that have their children at hospitals and its an option to forget a little bout economic problems and their diseases. By the stories they will read and listen, their quality of life will improve.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Government, private companies and private hospitals should be the first financial entities that must collaborate with this project, as it has a long term goal with the improvement of quality of life of children at hospitals.
My name is Samantha Sampedro, I am a Tv Producer and creative professional. During these years I have been working very close with little kids making visual projects; and I am inmersed in listening their needs and telling by cartoons and documentaries all their dreams, fears and worries. So, it is a great opportunity to make some impact not only for kids that have a "normal life", but also for kids that are at hospitals and don´t have a normal life, that tries to fight for their lifes day by day. Make something for them it´s a humongous improvement in the social development.
