I like your idea for NUYEP. As you are looking for partners and sponsors, I suggest that you upload some visual aids so that you can present your ideas more clearly. Perhaps include your projected cash flow-since you mentioned that your programme requires a great one. Or create an infographic of objectives and action plan. I wholeheartedly agree with you about the problems of high unemployment. Its definitely true all over the world. With that said, I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
I enjoyed reading over our project, and it's cool to see that we are working not only to make the most of limited resources but also to improve the lives of refugees. Although Shan peoples (crossing the Myanmar-Thai Border) are "classified" as migrant workers rather than refugees and live in fruit plantations, they, like those in Syrian and Kenyan refugee camps, are also struggling with water. I am working on an idea to produce and sell hand-held ceramic water filters, and I would really appreciate your thoughts on my low-tech ceramic water purification device-given your expertise in Engineering. Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into successful business.
Hi Jehlila ,
Thank you for visiting my page and sending your words of encouragement. I am more than happy to show support for you, too.
I am so sorry to hear about the conditions at Shining Star Association Community School. In order to raise awareness and funding for the school, you should seize this opportunity to show, more so than tell. Do you have any photographs of the school? If so, please consider uploading them to your page. With so much traffic in this website, you will be able to draw attention and mobilize support for your idea.
I have had the experience of working at a somewhat similar type of school in a rural area near the Myanmar-Thai border. Shan Womens Action Network (SWAN) used to support the community school up in the mountains so that the children of Shan refugees/migrant labourers could have access to basic education. Then, with the support of Thai Ministry of Education, SWAN was able to move the students from the community school to a government school. The children are flourishing in a better educational environment. With all that said, I praise you for trying to improve the quality of education for the children of Caledonia.
I learnt a lot from reading over your plans for implementation and sustainability, especially because I have been working on several projects with one government school and LifeFilters2Go Workshop is located at that school. I should definitely try to create a clear business model. Would it be okay for me to use your outline: (1) Identifying Targets; (2) Supply (sources of finance); (3) Market (trial & commitment periods)? Is there anything else that I need to add to my business plan? Your advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!
I am intrigued by your idea for community empower centres. There seems to be a lot of components to your idea, and, having grappled with too many of them myself, I suggest that you create an action plan and list all of the materials, methods, and costs. With that said, I wish you all the best in going from the conceptual stage to the startup stage!
Hi Monica and Tejeda,
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. I am here to show my support for your idea!
PS: Do you have any photos of Nkandone village? Posting some on this page may be helpful, too! I think that we are allowed to upload three image files. So if you have one, two, or three on hand, you should go "My Ideas/Project" page and click on "Improve" button.
