A first aid kit is a collection of supplies and equipment for use in giving first aid, and can put together for the purpose.  The idea of this first aid kit is to help people, who are living in the hard-to-access areas, to signal danger.

Hi, this is a good question. That's the reason and value for Module 2: Parent Education. In Module 2, the parents like Afia can also get a chance to learn something new (e.g. learn how to read a simple picture story book to the kids; learn some simple words) to assist them parenting outside C3.

Hi Afzal, thanks for your comments and happy to see your sharing of your startup, Kidogo. Regarding the financially sustainable, we did consider it from two aspects:
1) How to finance the startup cost of the centre? The game-like crowdfunding platform is proposed to generate the startup cost.
2) How to finance the ongoing activities in the centre? The suggested services and activities in the center will be launched by module. We plan to provide the higher priority service first (e.g. basic child care from aged 1.5-5. Then, the next step is to provide jobs (e.g. Tinker with Nature “Design kits”, https://openideo.com/challenge/zero-to-five/ideas/tinker-with-nature and Scarecrow-Garden https://openideo.com/challenge/zero-to-five/ideas/garden-scarecrow) for parents, so that the parents can also earn money by spending time in the center. As the center getting popular to the community, the next step is to provide parenting information and training to the parents and parents-to-be.

Also, the people who benefit from this idea should be included parents or parents-to-be
