Ovonyoli commented on The 'book of life skills'

I like the suggestion of geomapped network of mentors for future trainees. Thank you for the input. This will mean that incase of an emergency situation, the world is ready with trainers who can work with the girls to ensure their future. Awesome!!

I believe that collaboration is the best way forward because all the proposals have something good to offer. I wish the final selection criteria would involve a merger of the best points in most of the ideas because while most are promising, none is perfect and can do with a different contribution complementing the process to obtain 200% success rate. For example, the idea of girls making reusable sanitary towels, can work well with the idea of educhips that contain information on the process alongside all the ideas that include peer education and community empowerment so that communities not only have information but also the means to share the information. In summary, your point of inviting collaboration make this the most open platform that will ensure success in the implementation of the challenge.

I would gladly collaborate with your innovation at any capacity. This challenge is coming off as a competition when it should be a platform for collecting ideas that will as a package, shape the education of the girl child. All the ideas are really good and I wonder the level of success that will come from implementing the innovative portion in each idea and incorporating them into a mega intervention. It would be amazing.
