Explain your idea in details:
My project is called Outpeak, and Outpeak addresses a problem of school dropout due to income shocks, parental death and health issues by fundraising for students who incur these situations during their secondary education through our website, Outpeak also helps needy yet smart girls acquire free study scholarship to quality private secondary school here in the country by securing partnership with quality secondary schools, in addition other students will participate by donating excess scholastic material in Outpeak boxes that will be stationed in several schools. We get these needy students from schools and street government through distributed registration forms from Outpeak and our team will validate the submitted information before registering the student in our platform for online campaign so far we have started partnering with schools to get these drop outs . we conducted a research and found out that most Tanzanians do not go online to donate or contribute, usually they search other things so we decided to also raise local fund raising campaigns or have charity works with the benefit of getting funds. We dont stop at raising money only but we encourage the students to develop projects to sustain themselves for they will not only depend on donations when they meet such challenges again. When the student comes to our workshop we will have some time for reviews because if he/she only focuses on projects what about school so we will partner with online studying programs for such time.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
outpeak target is to incubate at least 50 students this year establish 5 boxes in different schools and partner with 10 street government in the region. the expected impact is all youth achieve literacy and numeracy through my idea. measures to take is making hand made boxes for donations, making a website for fundraising, making registration forms and distributing them in schools or street government, securing workshop marketing through fliers, posters social media, secure partnership with quality schools for the scholarships.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
when a student joins outpeak and starts campaign he/she will be cut 5% off the money the student has raised so far and when they start projects after they make it stable and start working 20% will be cut from profit also we will be having fundraising events like gala dinners, charity works 15% will be cut for outpeak savings the rest will go to the students or will cover any other costs but for now i the founder will be participating in fund competitions so as to raise money and go on implementing it
i am 16 year old girl from Tanzania and i am the ambassador of Apps and Girls the reason why i started this idea is because i went through the same challenges and i would not like other children to go through it too. i have coding and presentation skills and it has been quite a while i have been pitching this idea and won some several competitions like Apps and Girls annual competition, ITM youth idea challenge.
