Vamos por Venezuela (Go for Venezuela)
Published on June 26, 2014 um 11:51
Summary of your idea
This project is a campaign to aid the citizens in Venezuela in the best way we feel we can from the exterior. Due to the fact that there is a current political situation in Venezuela that is causing people to struggle for basic necessities we want to create the Campaign Vamos Por Venezuela. This consists of creating videos that include citizens from Venezuela and from outside of Venezuela sharing the current situation and giving information. Ideally we wish to expand this campaign to get the help of Venezuelan celebrities that can help us cause bring more attention to the problem. The key part of this campaign is that we want to do more than just inform and we want to create a vehicle for people to be able to get involved. Due to the current blockades and the fact that much aid being sent to Venezuela is being blocked we have contacted organizations within Venezuela that are currently dedicated to aiding its citizens and decided that the best way to send aid is by sending money directly so as it can be administered directly within the country so as to avoid the government intercepting any aid sent. For this we want to open a site for donations as well as for the campaign to help the citizens of Venezuela.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The impact we hope to achieve with this is in helping improve the current living situations of citizens within Venezuela. We hope to do this through finding an adequate measure of impact for donations. The importance of this campaign is its urgency in the fact that the situation is getting worse constantly. Due to this we want to measure the impact not only on the amount of donations made but by the views of the videos sent so as to know that the information is also being spread so people can react even if it is through an alternative measure than the one we are providing.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
This idea is part of the Foundation Yo Por Mexico which has recently established itself as a foundation and has in place funding projects through corporate sponsorship as well as support from the Tecnologico de Monterrey. This allows us to have a structure in place as a team of 60+ active student members that can aid in the logistics and planning of such an event. We have previously worked with television companies with which we plan to continue working with for this project. As for the business model it is simple, we will be promoting the campaign we just described through different TV Channels which we allready got partnership with, and after our messase is delivered, we will have an account number where you can make simple transfer with the groups within Venezuela that are selected to receive aid and that accept certain terms so as to regulate that the money does go to the correct sources. The money is an extra in this project, if we can collect any to aid the people on Venezuela thorogh the chosen organizations, would be great; but the main objective is to make general knowledge of the situation, to set more people in action. Toghether we are stronger, this proyect seeks to plant seeds of peace and justice into people around the world.
My name is Carlos, I´m 22 years old, I love sports, knowing new people and believing that we can make happen the change we want to see in the world. That´s why we started this NGO, because we want to impulse Mexican success, we are certain that if we make a positive change in people´s mentality, we can go further that we can possibly imagine. It´s a huge motivation for us to see that if you aim high, you get even higher, and to see a lot of people be touched by your vision and effort, it´s just amazing. Best reward you could get. We are against the settling attitude and not be decided to achieve more for yourself and for others. We can do always better!
