What problem does the idea help to solve and how does your solution work? (2,000 characters maximum)

this idea is going to resolve many challenge of people on move .the people on move meet with different challenge but we have decided to focus on those who are more destructive to the society which are dropping out of school for the children on move, violence for women on move, lack of employments and other opportunity for the youth on move and responding malnutrition problem for all people on move. You may ask how those challenge can be resolved with one idea let me prove it to you how my idea is important. For the women violence ,when you speak with some women in move they told you that before giving them some help some men ask them to do sex in order to get the help so this violence will be avoided by creating the cooperatives which will have 70% of women on move and the rest will be neighbor so that they will work together helping them to get all needs to cultivate small field of vegetables and fruits, fungi all those will help them to increase the standard of living of their family as well as fighting malnutrition in their home in time those activity will be working they will be increasing the connection between them and their neighbors. Not only doing small profitable activity but also they will be sharing the stories some inspiration women helping them to overcome their life struggle,…and showing them some video of those successful woman passed in struggle that will increase their persistence in their life and it will help all the community to feel happy .

Geography of focus (500 characters)

the region that I wish my idea must be implemented is in the region around and in refugee community located in Rwanda because as you see on the map Rwanda is between two country one in west(RDC) other in south( Burundi)all those country have the great number of people who have quitted their country due to different problem ,war and they come to Rwanda as refugee so after viewing different struggle they pass In, I had an idea of how to respond this. the reason why I think that Rwanda is better

Building Bridges: What bridge does your idea build between people on the move and neighbors towards a shared future of stability and promise? (500 characters)

the bridge that my idea bring is that those people on move will be connected with their neighbors in the cooperatives, this very good connection because the cooperatives will be making profit and doing something important that will make cooperatives to be active. So I think that this connection will grow as the time will go on, about their children as they will meet every week with neighbor’s children playing, reading some inspiration stories, will help them to create a strong bond among them.

What human need is your idea solving for? (1,000 characters)

.firstly my problem is solving psychological needs as the people on move will be able to share their stories with their neighbors working together for their family this will help to solve the problem that some of them can have of being selfish, having fear for expressing idea in new society. It will also solve nutrition needs as they will get access to all fruits and vegetables fruits and their chaff to cultivate them and cultivating fungi they will be able to prepare for their family the balanced diet that will help them and their children to grow well. Not only those needs but also it will solve financials needs as we see in our society the fruits and vegetables are still low on the market so that make them to be expensive so as they will increase their income instead of waiting the government help only, As the agriculture of fungi give more production in small time that will help them to get more income. it will also solve unemployment for youth through software connection.

What will be different within the community of focus as a result of implementing your idea? (1,000 characters)

For me what I see as different that my idea will bring to the community in which it will be implemented is that in that community there will be the good nutrition due to the small vegetables garden that they will have .not only the good nutrition but my idea will fight against hunger in the society as they will get money from those fungi they will cultivate it will help them to satisfy some of their needs instead of waiting the help of this community the people will work together with their neighbors to come up with great solution of their development . as you see if my idea is implemented in the one community there will be a bit different to the one in which it is not implemented.My idea is not only the response to the people on move but also to their neighbors and the society in general.

What is the inspiration behind your idea? (1,000 characters)

The inspiration of my ideas is what I’ve meet when I moved from rural area to live in the city even it was in the same country it was so challenging so that has made me to think what can I do to help the people on move especially refugee to feel more comfortable in the new society that they move,also my previous work in 2014 I’ve worked as mentor in 12+ program I was like the guidance of children of 10 and 12 years in the social, production, .I’ve seen that when the people meet and share some stories ,reading or watching playing it makes each and everyone to feel free and express his ideas and they can solve the society problem together .so I’ve thanked why not can we do it for the people on move to make them feel comfortable, and make them feel free to express their ideas to build the good future.

Describe the dynamics of the community in which the idea is to be implemented. (1,000 characters)

the community in which my ideas is going to be implemented it is good country which have peace and their leaders understand very well the project which help the community , and I’m sure that in time my idea is chosen they can help me to implement that .and beyond that my country has rebuild the hope of people after 25 years and we have unity and conciliation teams which is more helpful to the others and people have created trust among them after the genocide so this will be great inspiration to them that they can achieve more things in time they have unity ,and most of refugee who comes in our country they used to be farmers so this project will be friendly activity to them.

How does your idea leverage and empower community strengths and assets to help create an environment for success? (1,000 characters)

.my idea will empower community strength through the giving the good results to the participants of the projects and others people around , they need to increase their hope of living through many ways like sharing with them some inspiration stories ,showing them that all people needs to have humanity spirit …in my community the availability of vegetables and fruits as still low on the market so in time we put effort work together in cultivation of the fruits and vegetables it will increase the society income.

What other partners or stakeholders will work alongside you in implementing the idea, if any? (1,000 characters)

.the partner that I wish to work with in time my idea is choosen is my government because it helps many project to be implemented and became successful due to their guidance .so as they used to do that their experience can increase the way they how that project is very helpful to the society.
