What problem does your innovation solve?
Our mobile volunteering tutorial through the Box is an intervention for bridging the gap in emergency challenging situations to offer qualitative educational facility and training through the technologies of Mobile Tent as improvised classroom setting , video-scopes, and with the aid of laptops and power point presentations. This emergency educational model was first conceived and used for a case testing during the 2013 and 2014 flooding where people especially children and youths were displaced
Explain your innovation.
Through the use of power point and video-scope presentations, basic educational teachings with practical illustrations could be taught to affected and displayed children and youths especially the GIRLS Child in Mobile Tents and at times inside an equipped vehicle. The lessons are projected into an improvised board to the view of the concerned children who are made to sit comfortably in the mobile classroom or vehicle as the case may be. This emergency educational model has also been found to be effective under one-on-one individual training as well as during group class-room settings. This is made possible through digital technologies of the using laptops already loaded with lessons and teaching aids. For group use through improvised class-room settings, projectors, video-scopes and power points presentations are use to deliver quality educational resources to the children and youths in emergency situations.

Our innovation and interventions on mobile volunteering tutoring through the box is targeted towards the educational needs of children and youths during emergency situations like flooding, conflicts , inter tribal wars/crises, tsunamis, IDPs and etc. Through this emergency mobile education from the box designs, the displaced children and youths could be tutored and mentored without losing much gap from their educational pursuit. This is more so because, through the "BOX" Laptops and other digital tools, the person to person or groups educational needs could be met without much difficulties. This has proven very useful in real life situations to handle the educational needs of displaced children and youths severally around the Niger Delta region and Nigeria. It is an easily adopted and could be duplicated a model to meet up with the vast number of displayed children and youths all over the world.

How is your innovation unique?
Our mobile volunteering tutors through the" BOX" uses unique approach through digital tools and skills, improvised class-room setting as tent or vehicles, vidoe-scope, DVDs and power point presentations and delivery methods and techniques. Apart from being mobile in approach, our system could as well accommodate individual, person-to-person and groups educational tutoring and training of internally displaced children and youths. It also has the added advantages of equipping the youths with modern skills in digital education and skills acquisitions like Freelancing techiques for survival even during and after schooling.

What are some of your unanswered questions about the idea?
We are still working on more practical ways to improve and improvising on our delivering methodologies and especially training more Mobile Digital Volunteering Tutors for a wider coverage in times of large scale emergency needs. We are also dreaming of having a full fledged equipped Mobile Van/ Facility as an improvised class-room setting with vidoe-scope , power point materials for delivering with speed on a larger scales. Please kindly refer to our approach DFD-DEVELOPING FUTURE DRIVERS -SDGs CLUBS for recruiting, training and empowering more youths volunteers from the book: A B C and 1 2 3 ON SKILLS FOR THE SDGs at : http://www.amazon.com/author/amosobi .Or refer to this Hetavad Innovation on the SDGs Actions APPs Platform.
