I like the fact that you are providing a way for many refugee women to find good quality work and you plan on expanding it outside of that demographic later. The use of various components and supply chains are also good as they make the business easier to run. I would just make sure that people know as well who, how and why these products are being made. I wish you the best of luck developing this program further

I feel as though you are on the right track as you are taking materials which are usually wasted and creating them into insulation blocks. You also identify you want a certain standard which also allows for better ability to succeed. I do feel as though you should try to get a provider for the materials or have donations so that the processes of the business run more smoothly. Best wishes on further development of your idea

Hello, your idea is one which may provide jobs for people thus giving them decent work and gets them out of poverty. I do like that you know what weaknesses/ threats you have going against you. I would try to figure out a way to make your clothes different from the majority. This is because it will make you stand out and be able to maneuver more freely within the market. I would check out some of the online course material for free as ways you may be able to stand out. I wish you good luck on development going forward. Best wishes

I like the fact that you are providing quality work for individuals through the various components of your business. This is good, as this not only covers the development goals, but also follows the training outlined by our courses in some ways. I would look at potential ways to cover additional parts of the development goals. I do believe that there are ways as well to make the creation of your products more sustainable, but I would look at recycling clothes programs/ using all natural materials. This may add an extra part to the business which could be helpful. best wishes

the pavement blocs idea for recycling is a good idea. My concern is that certain blocs may different levels of quality than you wished due to the production materials. Though if you can guarantee standards then I would say that is quite good. I would also try to prove how your blocks are compared to the ones which already exist. Best wishes on further development on your project

Your project is one which covers many different development goals, and is one which can be certainly sustainable. I believe that you are on the right track, but keep in mind there are obstacles you are going to face. One obstacle in particular is keeping the cost affordable as in some areas the small house trend has increased prices. Though your emphasis on solar energy for the home will help alleviate the cost of the home. I also like that you recognize an initiative that is already in place in Pakistan which you can obviously work with. I would try to use that to make your potential rate of success even greater. best wishes

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.

Reading through your project has been interesting. You obviously have the technical side of your idea clearly planned out. This purification system is obviously good at tackling the development goals, however keep in mind you can use other individuals for planning the placement, or the other businesses aspects of the machine. I would look at other programs similar to this one. Best wishes on further development

After looking at some potential examples of edible packaging, your options are quite good. I would however look at some of the rules for what products can legally be consumed in your area. This is important because it can affect your supply chain greatly. I would also look and see what types of packaging work well with certain foods.

I feel as though this project gets at goals that not many people think of when it comes to entrepreneurship. The overall usage of education courses and legal assistance are important are not always available for refugees. I feel as though you may want to look for partnerships with schools that offer free or reduced cost meals to the students. You are definitely on the right track. Best wishes on further development of your project
