Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it reimagine the cost of college?

most families are economically incapacitated and cannot afford a good living they are unable to feed on a balanced diet,pay the school fees for their children.They engage in precarious jobs and some young girls engage in anti social activities.poverty has driven most young people out of school and colleges due to high cost of education.Good news is,there are opportunities on the internet to help raise funds for important causes like higher education one can use such platform to raise money

student and sponsor in the computer lab exchanging ideas when having lunch,

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

To succeed ,you will need a clear idea of what you want to fund,great messaging to communicate your idea, a fundraising target and a time frame in which to meet it.besides text,you may need pictures and videos to help pitch your messages clearly,you will also need to have a good network of friends and family to back you up.You have to be appealing and convincing you need marketing skill s To encourage those far and wide to contribute,you need to have your friends and relatives donate first .

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?

Majority of these crowdfunding sites are based in Europe and US .To raise funds in those countries while in Kenya may not work with some platform some platforms require one to have presence in those countries however, however if you have a trusted person or an organization like openIDEO community living in those countries ,you can work with them to receive the donated funds in their bank accounts on your behalf and then transfer to your cause you would set online profile ,complete with your e-ma

This idea emerged from
