Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
As an ICT for Development Champion, envision to establish a technology innovation hub platform where the young generation can brainstorm, share out ideas and develop tech innovations for solutions to the challenges starting from the grassroots. A platform where the youths can be mentored to grow and development in career and in business e.g via hackathons, tech weeks.
It's all part of making a better world.
With a focus in the global south, bolstering grassroots innovation will increase digital literacy, the innovations focusing on agriculture will improve the livelihood, unemployment will drop, women and the vulnerable group will be empowered. Additionally, the e-government will be easy to implement for efficient service delivery and governance.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by mostly the youths at the grassroots level, the community and the countries in the global south.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Creation of jobs through the support of grassroots innovations
Increase digital literacy at the bottom of the pyramid
Improve livelihood through innovations at the grassroots level
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Outcome 1: statistics survey on the number of youths who have been employed or self-employed. The number of start-ups established and the number of innovation supported and their impact.
Outcome 2: Reports on the number of digital skills training conducted and the participants certified after completion.
Outcome 3: Survey on the Increase of $ 1.50 per day to $2.00 to households after a given time.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
