I really like the fact that you have identified one of the biggest problems in your country and even your continent! Like you, I am seventeen, and I trying to do the same in a small community near the Myanmar-Thai border. Im afraid that I dont have much knowledge in software engineering or anything high tech. I'm working on an age-old, low-tech device that is supposed to purify contaminated drinking water. I can see your point about the importance of creating an online platform as a way to connect people who would otherwise not come across or help one another. I now wish that I got around to taking some computer science classes and making the most of the online platform. I hope that you keep up with your interests in ComSci, public health, and SocEntrepreneurship. Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into sustainable business.
It seems as though you and I are at the same stage of idea development. I really like your idea for Smart-Poultry! As I am reading over everyone elses ideas, I realise that visual aids would be helpful for our projects, especially because we have so many different targets. I am thinking about using a website called Piktochart to create some infographic on my issues, strategies, and goals. I suggest that you take a look at the site! With that said, wish you all the best as you continue to work on your idea!
I really like your idea for the textbooks, and I agree with about the importance of education for youths. Ive also been working on a project with Shan Womens Action Network, and we are publishing five Aesops Fables in English, Shan, and Thai languages. We are hoping to increase literacy amongst children of Shan refugees/migrant workers around Myanmar-Thai border. I would love to stay in touch with you and see how your idea moves from one stage to the next.
I love your idea for TechAfrik! Im afraid that I dont have much knowledge in coding or anything high tech. I'm working on an age-old, low-tech device that is supposed to purify contaminated drinking water. As I am looking over everyone elses ideas and projects, I regret not having taken any computer science classes! Are these courses offered in English? Have you considered offering them to other adolescents around the world? If so, I am definitely interested in signing up for some courses! Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into sustainable business in Nigeria and, hopefully, worldwide.
I'm just stopping to show support for your Highway Social Centre. Though I have visited some highway rest stops on various road trips with my family, I never imagined its potential to become a social welfare station for the surrounding communities. I'm working on an idea that is supposed to solve the problems of unsafe drinking water and limited educational/vocational opportunities. It's so cool that we are taking different approaches but that we are trying to improve the welfare of those in need! Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into sustainable business.
I enjoyed reading over our project, especially the part about going back to basics and addressing the universal needs. It's cool to see that youre initiating programmes for farmers. Last year, I launched a School Farm at Ban Wiang Wai School, and, this year, I went back there to further enhance its educational programme. I would like to stay in touch with you, especially because of your experience in this field. The students, teachers, and I would be so honoured to learn as much as we can from you. Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into successful enterprise.
I am really impressed by your water conversion device. It's even cooler to see that we are tackling the problem of water scarcity. Last year, I installed five water filtration systems and turned them into free Water Fill-up Stations at Ban Wiang Wai School; however, the students, who received large water containers, found it difficult to carry them home! So I am now working on an idea to produce and sell hand-held ceramic water filters so that the students and their families can purify contaminated water from their water wells at home. Because I am still in secondary school and dont have much experience in STEM, I would really appreciate your thoughts on my water purification device. Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into sustainable business in Haiti.
Wow, your video is expertly produced and sums up your idea really well! I now realise that not only my video but also my idea needs a bit more work-branding, elevator pitch, etc. I will definitely keep my eyes out for your company, especially if I end up becoming a freelancer or remote worker.
I'm just stopping to say that I admire you for pushing forward cultural reforms through sports. I agree with you about the importance of sports programmes; after all, playing squash at my secondary school really has changed me for the better! Certainly, people with disabilities deserve chances to participate in physical education. Will your programme be based only in Maun, or are you planning to expand it elsewhere in Botswana? I'm working on an idea that is supposed to solve the problems of unsafe drinking water and limited educational/vocational opportunities. It's so cool that we are taking different approaches but that we are trying to enhance education for youths. Wishing you all the successes as you turn this idea into sustainable business.
Hi V.N. Vignesh,
Its so cool to read about your idea to turn rice husk into an alternative fuel. Rice husk is one of the suggested components of the clay water filters, but Ive only mixed clay and sawdust. Before I finalise the product and put it out in the market, I still need to test the effectiveness of different methods. Have you already tested your method? Would simulation software be enough to test its effectiveness? I guess Id like to use the software to test LifeFilters2Go, too! With that said, wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.
