Explain your project in details:

In Benin, women make up 52% of the population. Victims of diverse inequalities, their weak presence in the current subjects treated by the traditional media adds to the stereotypes which place the woman in the second plan of the animation of the public life. This low presence in the media is a problem that we intend to solve through the project MAMABENIN. MAMABENIN is the creation of a set of digital media (Website, Webradio / TV, mobile application) to disseminate news involving women and address the specific needs of women in information. The "website" phase is already underway. The creation of our project to address this particular problem is the result of an observation made in the traditional media. News content published takes very little into account women. This reinforces the stereotypes that make women a passive player in Beninese society. Our approach was then to set up a digital solution for the following reasons: To show the participation of women in the animation of public life and their contributions to economic, social and cultural development To take part in relaying initiatives to promote women's leadership, lift women out of poverty, combat gender-based violence and stereotypes

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Since its creation, we broadcast news that highlights women in public life. We give priority to women and bring their voices to the front of the stage. We share women initiatives and encourage all actions to promote women. We strongly believe that media can contribute to the deconstruction of gender stereotypes, promote social inclusion of girls and women and promote gender equality. To date, we contribute: To a diversity press that takes into account all genders, especially women To bring the consumers of the Beninese press to understand, accept and encourage women in the animation of public life To encourage other media to become aware of their role in the promotion of women potential, the fight against inequalities, the deconstruction of popular ideas and stereotypes of genre in communities.

Sustainability and future plans

Our project in the future is to be able to develop a mobile application to integrate all our media (Web site, WebRadio and WebTV). Our current business model is based partly on self-financing and incidentally communication delivery, support from some readers who find in our project an idea to promote gender equality in the media, revenues from by moment social and cultural events. While continuing to reflect on a profitable business model, we are considering crowdfunding and partnerships with local organizations to gather some of the funding needed to develop the project.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

Born August 20, 1984, Bismarck Sossa is a young multimedia journalist from Benin with more than 10 years in the practice of journalism and communication. His contact with the population led him to understand that, as a journalist, it was not enough to raise the problems of the community in a media but he could also provide a solution to the needs. Thus was born his desire to serve. In 2015, Bismarck Sossa was nominated laureate of the Africa Innovation program and followed her first training of Media Entrepreneurship in Dakar. A women's rights activist, he founded the first news website on women, gender and development in 2016 and launched her first communication company "Mamabenin Communication" in May 2018 to provide communication services to small businesses. His current challenge is to correct the low presence of women in mainstream media, to combat gender stereotypes and inequalities between men and women. Today its media is increasingly recognized as an idea for the promotion of women in the media.

Hello
Your project is good. However, i think you still need to improve on your traction (impact of your enterprise on sustainability development); for any ongoing project, as Entrepreneurs; traction is like our success story and shows our progress and also has a positive impact on investors to be and we your clients / customers. Providing statistical evidence will be a good edge against selection criteria. Best of luck

This idea is one which has potential to shine a light on an area which is often forgotten in the media. While this may be true, this is one idea where you are going to have to persevere. I feel as though you are on the right track, just keep in mind media partnerships may be helpful. You should always stand firm though on your ideals.

Thanks dear,
hope you have voted to impulse Mamabenin. Our ambition is to contribute in deconstructing gender base stereotypes by using the capacity and forces of media. Women participate a lot in the development of our countries but their efforts are less recognized simply because they are women. Our will is to put in place a media that contribute to highlight women and show the next generation of girl that their have the same opportunities as boys.

Hello Bismarck.
I want to join you in touching the lives of women it is true that more than half the population of the world are women. Yet when you go to work places, more than half the population ate men! A very sharp contrast. Your project is handy and on time. Keep it up.

For women in Africa, for the potential of this project to contribute to the promotion of women through media I highly encourage Mamabenin and its owner Bismarck Sossa who day by day is engaged for women rights in Benin Republic. I wish you brother good luck. As for suggestion, I would like the content of the Website is duplicate in English in order to reach new audience like Nigeria, Ghana and other English speaking countries in West Africa. I observe since many months now your commitment to you use your skills in journalism to change the world. The nomination of Mamabenin for this competition is the proof your are on the right way.
