The entire process experience increase in financial resources as the Government benefit $1 per tablet, Textbook publishers receives 1$ per book of minimum 14 books in a tablet. We offer $2 USD for Social responsibilities to poor infrastructure schools that uses our tablets. For example, a school of 3500 students buys our tablet; the school will benefit $7,000 to provide internet, electricity and more. 10% of the profit will be used in the same school to organize competitions to promote peace inter schools monthly to effectively scale peace among youths and we award prizes for the best teams.

Problem

Cameroon school-age population is constantly increasing to over 11,163,099, less than 30% has all textbooks in schools and corruption/theft is a daily routine for dropouts who attack student for their textbooks. Many parents face difficulties in buying hard-copy books which ranges from $150 to $200 for atlases 14 textbooks/ person. Teens don’t know their rights unlike their peers in Europe/USA. Africa suffers from illnesses such as Ebola, and Malaria. Entrepreneurship is hardly taught in schools and teens believe only the government employment. Boko Haram attacks are everywhere given the need to promote and scale peace.

Solution

Our innovation is unique; we developed a tablet powered by Electrical & Solar Energy. All Text books of a particular class in soft copies from publisher are transferred into the tablet and secured which can’t be pirated. In addition; basic books of Entrepreneurship, the constitution, health and ICT for capacity building for just $60. It’s traceable with just a simple sms when stolen; this makes teens study more and helps in preparing the next generation of young leaders we want for our country.

Target Beneficiaries

We provide teens with all reading materials for a quality education and empowerment program for the promotion of peace, entrepreneurship, health and ICT to our target audience. We benefit the communities since our teens create social projects to help and improve their communities. They get the chance to lead a social change in their surroundings and become active leaders. We also benefit teachers - we work with the teacher in class and train them in entrepreneurship tools.

Mission and Vision

With the excellent results achieved already and the promising plans for the future, we are developing a sense of self-efficacy among teens by making a difference and changing the approach to education in the 21st century. Our additional program teaches teens to initiate and execute a community project, encouraging them to be engaged, caring and contributing to their society necessary to close the education gap with emphasis on developing products for communities overlooked by EDTECH companies.

Competitive Advantage

The Tablet is powered by Electrical & Solar Energy because the electricity power is not constant and without features of Camera, sim, call, internet, radio, messages, videos and contacts. The Government rejects these in schools because it will not help teens to concentrate in their academics. But it has features of a scientific calculator, Calendar, Clock, Touch light, and GPS SMS tracker in case of theft. Teens personally learn preventive measure of illnesses such as Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and Malaria from books in the tablet. They also learn the business module in Entrepreneurship. Parents have reported that children exhibit higher self confidence and academic performance and that they are likely to spend more time with their tablet rather than toys.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Our 5 year plan is to have 70% school-age population in Cameroon (8,500,000 users) Sales margin should supersede $5 billion dollars. Replicate to 5 African countries and have over (30,000,000 users) Employing 500 permanent, 800 temporal staffs. 2,000,000 schools should benefits from our social responsibilities of $5,000 minimum. Above thirty million teens will have all textbooks while bridging the educational gap among teens.
