Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.



Here is my plan to the issue: access to education:
1. The Place. Where will you make a difference? Describe the institution, community, town or other geographic or virtual space in which you will focus your efforts.

I will start a all around the world non-profit organization where mentors can be trained on a secure website made by either some of the geniuses in the world or me. After the mentors are trained enough, they will conduct free lessons with all the kids who'd like to learn. Once these kids get older and wiser, they will end up becoming mentors for others and teaching small or large groups of children. This will be all over the world and once in a while, after the organization gets many donations, some mentors will be able to travel to Africa or other places with a lack of education and teach the children of Africa. The cla**** can be held anywhere... Outside, inside, in a house, anywhere.

2. The Challenge. What will you aim to change, and for whom? Highlight what is the need that you perceive and who will benefit from this change.

Many children don't have access to knowledge and some don't have enough of it. I want to change the next generation of children so that, as adults, they will be more likely to find jobs and solve problems.

3. The Idea. Your solution – what is the action, product, service, project, change that you will initiate? Tell us how will your idea will succeed where others have failed.

I will end up educating many children who had never been to school with the help of volunteers all over the world. The only way we connect is by a single web page and maybe phone and email. There haven't been many education opportunities that have been given because of the economy.

4. The Money. What would you do with your first US$1,000 given or invested in support of your vision?
I will try to find all the educational materials we will need.

My Inspiration came from the website: http://www.khanacademy.org/

hello Jane, love your idea. Are you planning to formally submit this evokation? do you think that 1000 USD is enough? how much do you need? In which country will you start the project?
I am curious!

I have already submitted the Evokation by e-mail. No, 1000 USD that's we will need donations. I probably need enough to send three people from completely different part of the world to one place (thanks for catching the mistake). I would start the project in USA where you will be able to find many mentors. If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.

@Samiran Roy. I know a lot about the Khan Academy, but I am not particularly talking about that. It's just my inspiration.

good one jain

Hi again Jain, thanks for the reply. I would like to see your evokation in the final, if this was my project, I would add more of a feeling that everything is planned and ready to launch. Like for isntance, the location in US where you will start, do you have premises? and how much time the initial training for mentors will take?. I imagine you already started collecting donations, do you have a link to that page?
If you gave examples of the educational material? I amgine this is innovative stuff, which can grab the attention of the reviewers!

I haven't really started collecting donations. This is a project for what I might do in the future... Thanks for the suggestions. I would start at home and a mentor has to already have learned what they will be teaching. They will have to be 13 or older and maybe take a test. The educational material will be based on the US curriculum. (Unless the student is advanced, where they will end up moving to an upper class).

Hope your dream can come true! Good luck!

@Sam. Great idea! I use Skype too... I know exactly what you're talking about, that may be one way I could communicate with others.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
