Alessandra commented on Sputnique: Solar-school in a backpack

Waliullah Bhuiyan  thank you for answering my questions! It sounds like you have a great plan in action for deploying these tools in the field.

Alessandra commented on Sputnique: Solar-school in a backpack

I like this idea of bringing education to children rather than expecting children to travel great distances to their closest school or teacher. I think this tool could be very valuable in maintaining a young person's education despite disarray. How do you envision training new users? Would you have support staff available to dispatch to troubleshoot units that were not working? How many years does each Sputnique last for?

Alessandra commented on Girls' Ombudswoman in every School

This reminds me a little of the CASA model in the United States in which adults are paired with foster children as advocates. I think a female role model who is able to demonstrate the value and importance of girls' education to families is a great idea. How do you foresee engaging the ombudswomen? Would there be an application process? Will you require any prior credentials?
