Explain your project in details:

INSFAS COMPETITIONS is an innovation meant to create a market exposure for the young people studying fashion and salon courses in vocational schools in Uganda. It is organized in form of a challenge, where the participants are given fashion and salon tasks to be accomplished within a given period. The judges (mainly personalities with established businesses in the fashion and salon industry) then select the best performers in each school. The work for the winning participants in each school is photographed and uploaded on our website and Face book page for public voting. Judges selection constitutes 40% and public voting 60%. The public (common man) is encouraged to participate in the voting process because it is the customer for these courses taught in vocational schools, the reason also as to why they take the biggest voting percentage. After a given period of time, the votes are counted and the winners are given prizes such as sewing machines, salon equipment and cash for capital. With continuously organizing these competitions, it will attract the attention of TV and radio stations, fashion bloggers, High profile personalities, fashion entrepreneurs and big companies. This will give exposure to these young designers and more fruitful employment will be realized.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Since the enterprise focuses on the youth, it will be spiced with a program schedule that stimulates the youths participation. This includes 1. Encouraging the youth for vote for their nominated friends both on face book and website using their smart phones during the voting process. 2. Involving the key personalities such as the favorite youth musicians to be part of the key milestones, such as performing in the fashion shows that wrap up the competitions, while dressed in the attires made by fashion participants, as well as hair and makeup made by the participating salon students. 3. Working in collaboration with TV and radio stations to host and interview the winners about their fashion and salon careers. At the end of the day, this will create a sense of fame among the winners and the all participants in general which will stimulate more youth to join vocational schools doing fashion and salon courses so that they get a chance to be part of the lime light. This will automatically expose the youths to the better employment opportunities, since everyone will want to be associated with their work. Entrepreneurs dealing in fashion related products such as clothing with start making orders for their boutiques from these young designers. As the work load grows bigger, these young people will employ others. This is in line with Goal 1- No poverty. More youth will be encouraged to be trained into fashion and salon courses. The winners will always part away with prizes such as sewing machines and salon equipment and hard cash to be used as a startup capital after graduation. Since it is a competition, more youth doing these courses will start getting focused on quality production. This is in line with Goal 8- Decent work and Economic Growth.

Sustainability and future plans

INSFAS Competitions works in collaboration with vocational schools teaching fashion and salon courses. It is meant to create a market exposure for the youth leaving vocational schools and joining the market world. Therefore, it targets to create market for the youths involved in fashion design, salon services as well as modeling business too. Within a period of 3 years, we will have measured the success of INTER-SCHOOL FASHION AND SALON COMPETITIONS. Therefore, will introduce in a new product, THE FASHION WEEK. This will be meant to benefit the already established tailors in Uganda as well as introducing the new designers that won in the INSFAS Competitions. After a period of more 3 years, we will have registered success and another new product, DZYNA AWARDS, will be introduced. This will be to sum up the fashion year by recognizing the personalities that have contributed to the fashion Industry of Uganda. Initially, this business start up is entirely depending on donations and grants from concerned organizations such as Entrepreneurship Campus. Later, private companies dealing in the manufacture of salon and fashion related products as well as the government will pick up interest to sponsor this program.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

NAME: NKWASIIBWE GEOFFREY DATE OF BIRTH: 3 /11/1984 ADDRESS: JJEMBA PLAZA, ROOM K-127, LUWUM STREET, KAMPALA, UGANDA. TEL: +256 773707691 BACKGROUND: I graduated in 2008 with a Bachelors degree in Industrial and Fine Arts, Makerere University in the Course units; Photography, Graphic Designing and Water colour painting. I developed a passion for wedding fashion photography and have published a number of Ugandas wedding fashion look books, which are used by tailors in Kiyembe and other parts of Kampala and Uganda. Now I want to broaden the idea into creating a market exposure platform for young designers called INTER-SCHOOL FASHION AND SALON COMPETITONS. MOTIVATION: Ugandas fashion industry has got a lot of fashion talent but with very little exposure. Every day, Ugandan fashion entrepreneurs fill their shops with imported fashion from designers overseas, yet there are many young designers who have graduated from Vocational schools with fashion skills. These young people would do excellent work if they would sign contracts with fashion entrepreneurs to supply unique designs. As a result, there is very little or no employment at all among many young designers, reason being that there are no platforms to give them exposure to the potential market. This is why INTER-SCHOOL FASHION AND SALON COMPETITIONS has been created to solve the problem.

Hello Geofrey

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

I have read through your idea and it is inspiring. It somehow throws the light on the unemployment issue among the youths in Uganda, When it is developed to a full potential, I believe it will yield results and bring a smile to the faces of many young people.

Wonderful idea!
I am impressed... The cosmetics industry is fast growing. So has been fashion. The fashion industry keeps shifting.and so you too should be a game changer. Concerning the competition, you should borrow a leaf from this Campus. Let the competitors interact fully with comments and votes. This means you will need a suitable website that you can link with your facebook account. Your idea will for sure empower many youth. Keep it up.
