IN SUPPORT OF THE UNITED NATIONS SYSTEM FOR A BETTER WORLD AND THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS 2015 - 2030

EDULIFE: Providing an End-to-End Digitalized Education System for Children across the world.

COP SIGN
Implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 4

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

EDULIFE Promoting the Culture of Peace and Community Empowerment through Bridging the Digital Divide. Primary Target Countries: Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries, Small Island Developing Countries, Countries in Transition and Developing Countries in general. Brief Description:The present program is in conformance with the United Nations Resolutions A/Res/53/25 and 53/243 which set up a decade long global vision and a program of action to create a culture of peace and non violence for the children of the World. The Resolutions’ objectives are straightforward and compelling; namely: to make the world a better place to live with responsible and better citizens and empowered communities living in better socio- economic conditions. The program as proposed here addresses 3 vital concerns; bridging the Digital Divide, the Culture of Peace and Community Empowerment in order to benefit from their synergy and mutual support. Providing access to education, information technology and economic opportunity for youth and community members is a critical factor in preventing conflict. Such capacity-building activity also leads to the development of an informed civil society, a key factor for a country to build its human, social and economic capital.

The program will offer training in the use of Information Communities Technologies (ICTs) in our case EDU-TABS to teachers, students and community members to promote local economic and social development-aimed at-capacity-building cross-cultural communication, and employment. Education is and always will be very important in building a strong foundation in one’s life. This is especially true in terms of looking at our future generation. We want our youth to be educated, to be up to date with current issues, and able to provide knowledge to the next generation. Education is a strong building block in building a stronger and healthier community.

This starts by putting an emphasis on the importance of education in our youth today. As a community, it is our obligation to help a child develop their identity and be a contributing factor to society. We must refocus on the idea that a child is the center of our community.

Hence we propose to reduce these barriers by educating children across the world through IT using Tablets, Cloud Servers, Webcams and Software Application that will create a medium of communication to the most remote regions of any country.

EDU-TAB is a preconfigured computer tablet with educational softwares for students from class K to 10. The tablet will be loaded with Wi-fi, Webcam, GSM Sim Card, Education Applications and other general utilities. Students can simply run the education app and open a world of limitless knowledge.

The report briefly discusses the major issues of illiteracy, reach of education services and how technology can improve literacy rate across the globe.

EDUCATION

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research.

Education is an important part of preparing individuals to enter the workforce. Many jobs require a person to have basic writing and math skills, as well as computer skills. Education provides people with a better understanding about the world they live in, and this helps them interact with family, friends and co-workers.

An education also gives people basic skills to survive in the world, including numeracy and literacy skills. It helps them better communicate and work with others. Education helps a person accurately and safely perform his job duties.

Another important part of education is knowing how the government works. This helps people make informed decisions and interpret current news events. Learning critical thinking skills helps people to make decisions that affect their everyday lives. Some people believe that education is important because it helps people learn how to love, live and work.

IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION

  1. For a happy and stable life
    If you want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, you certainly need to get educated. A great job, a good social reputation are few of the many benefits of being an educated person. Education is a must for a promising and secure future and a stable life.
  2. Money
    An educated person has more chances of landing up a good high paying job. Everybody wants a good life but the good life!. It may be called as the “root of all evil” but most people will agree that money is important for survival in today’s world. The more educated you are, the better career options you have!
  3. Equality
    If we want to see the world as a just and fair place where everyone is given equal opportunities, education is what we require. Education is a must if we want to do away with the existing differences between different social classes and genders. It opens a whole world of opportunities for the poor so that they may have an equal shot at well paying jobs. Education also plays a major role in women empowerment.
  4. Makes you self dependent
    Education is very important if you want to be a self dependent person. It helps you become financially independent but that is not all. Education also makes you wiser so that you can make your own decisions.
  5. Turns your dreams into reality
    What is your dream, your aim in life? Do you want to become rich? Do you want to be popular? Do you want to be an extremely successful person who is respected by people? Well, the key to all this is education. Of course there are exceptions, like sportsmen who don’t really owe their success to their education. However in most cases, your degree is what helps you realize all your dreams.
  6. Makes the world a safer and more peaceful place
    Education majorly affects our understanding of the difference between right and wrong. An educated person is well aware of the consequences of wrong/illegal actions and he is less likely to get influenced and do something which is not legally/morally right. Also, a number of uneducated people who live a poverty stricken life owning to lack of opportunities often turn to illegal ways such as theft and robbery to solve their problems. If you are educated, you are well aware of your rights, the law and your responsibilities towards the society. Hence, education is an important factor which contributes in social harmony and peace.
  7. Makes you confident
    Your educational degree is considered as a proof of your knowledge by many. If you are educated you have more chances of being heard and taken seriously. Generally, an uneducated man will find it harder to express his views and opinions owning to lack of confidence. Even if he does so, people may not take him seriously. Education gives you the confidence to express your views and opinions.
  8. Society
    We all live in a society which has its own set spoken/unspoken rules and one of them is education. The society expects you to go to school followed by college, get a job, settle down etc. In fact education helps you become a useful member of the society. An educated member certainly has a greater chance to contribute to his community. Education helps you become an active member of the society and participate in the ongoing changes and developments.
  9. For economic growth of the nation
    Australia, USA and Japan are few countries with very high literacy rates. These countries are extremely prosperous and the citizens have a high per capita income. On the other hand, in underdeveloped and developing nations, where literacy rate is not as high, a number of people are still living below the poverty line. Education is vital for the economic prosperity of a nation!
  10. Saves you from being fooled/cheated
    Education saves you from being exploited and fooled. We live in a country where we enjoy a number of rights and freedom. It is easier to take advantage of innocent and illiterate people. They may be trapped into signing false documents or be deprived of some right which they have because unlike an educated person they are not well aware of their rights and freedoms.

LITERACY, EDUCATION SCHOOLS AND CURRENT WORLD SITUATION

Literacy has been defined as: The ability to read, write and use numeracy, to handle information, to express ideas and opinions, to make decisions and solve problems, as family members, workers, citizens and lifelong learners.

Millions of children in poorer countries can’t read or do simple sums according to a United Nations report. The report says this is because there are around 57 million children who don’t have a school to go to.

The UN’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) says in some areas it could take 70 years before there are enough primary school places for every child.

World leaders had previously pledged to make sure every child has a school place before 2015 but the report estimates it’s more likely to be 2086 before this happens.

The pledges were part of the Millennium Development Goals that several countries all over the world signed up to – these are promises to make key changes to improve the lives of poor people across the globe.

There has been some progress though; there are now half as many children unable to go to school as there were in the year 2000. That means in the past 13 years around 60 million more children now have access to an education.

However, because progress has slowed down, the UN’s report says that it could take a lot longer to get the rest in education – 70 years in fact.

The report highlights a number of reasons for this, including lack of money, lack of teachers and ongoing conflicts like Syria which are affecting children’s education.

UNESCO director-general Irina Bokova said: “Teachers have the future of this generation in their hands. We need 5.2 million teachers to be recruited by 2015, and we need to work harder to support them in providing children with their right to a universal, free and quality education.”

List of Top Ten Least Educated Countries In The World:

Rank Countries Literacy Rate Percentage
1 Burkina Faso 21.8%
2 South Sudan 24.4%
3 Chad 25.7%
4 Niger 28.7%
5 Guinea 29.5%
6 Benin 34.7%
7 Sierra Leone 34.8%
8 Ethiopia 35.9%
9 Mozambique 38.7%
10 Senegal 39.3%
Besides from the above list there are many other top countries where most children are out of school. Countries like Pakistan, Philippines, Kenya, Nigeria, Yemen, Mali, Bhutan, Central African Republic.

According to an infograph released by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics in 2013, 52% of the 774 million illiterate people who are 15 years and older are based in West and South Asia. As of 2015, these regions have 70.2% literacy rates, while sub-Saharan Africa has 64%. South Sudan ranks lowest of them all, with a literacy rate of just 27%, followed by Afghanistan at 28.1%, Burkina Faso at 28.7%, Niger at 28.7%, Mali at 33.4%, Chad at 35.4%, Somalia at 37.8%, Ethiopia at 39%, Guinea at 41% and Benin at 42.4%.

Further analysis of UNESCO statistics details that of the 774 million illiterate adults recorded in 2013, two thirds of these, or about 493 million, are women who are unable or have difficulties reading text messages, filling out forms and reading their doctor’s prescription. Furthermore, there are 123 million people between 15 and 24 years of age who cannot read or write.

Of these illiterate youth, 76 million are women and 54 million of them are based in only nine countries: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, United Republic of Tanzania, Egypt and Burkina Faso.

Below is a chart of the 25 most illiterate countries:

SOLUTION TO INCREASING EDUCATION AND LITERACY RATES

Problems found in any statistical or a UN report related to education or illiteracy; are lack of funds, lack of resident teachers, education schools, logistics, books, infrastructure, language barriers and reaching remote villages.

EDU-TAB solves all the major problems listed above. Due to major developments in IT, mankind is able to reach the most remote locations of this world.

EDU-TAB education program is a virtual learning environment. It addresses all concerns in following ways:

  1. Funds – Setting up buildings cost millions of dollars and require completion of several legalities. But distributing Tablet devices cost much less and require no prior legal permissions.
  2. Resident Teachers – It may be difficult to find a tutor/professor who is ready to teach children in remote villages or it may be difficult to convince an urban teacher to move to the rural for education purposes. EDU-TAB tablets and webcams make it easier to setup a virtual live classroom with the tutor being in any part of the world and the children in another. Classrooms are conducted live and education is delivered through a virtual tutor, who can solve all doubts of students instantly.
  3. Schools – Not all villages or cities have schools setup by the local government, hence EDU-TAB is a virtual school for all children and students.
  4. Logistics – Students or children may have to travel long distances for schooling, with our devices children can assemble at a local hall and get education instantly.
  5. Books – Now a days books are easily downloadable from the internet and the online library is vaster than a local bookstore. Access is also must more easier and some books are available for free downloads.
  6. Infrastructure – The only infrastructure required is electricity that can be sourced through solar power and internet that can be connected through telecommunication services.
  7. Language Barriers – Since education is being taught through IT, there are options for students to choose their preferred language. Books and softwares downloaded will be available in several languages.
  8. Remote Villages – Teachers can teach children in any part of the world using our system.

EDU-SPORTS EDUCATION

Sports Education
Physical activity is vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health. The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport should not be under-estimated.

UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, the UN’s lead agency for physical education and sport, introduced the first landmark policy related to physical education in 1978. Titled, the International Charter of Physical Education and Sport introduced by UNESCO in 1978, it declares that “every human being has a fundamental right of access to physical education and sport, which are essential for the full development of his personality.”

Hence, we will provide online and offline contents on various sports for children to learn and play.

IN SUPPORT OF THE UN CULTURE OF PEACE RESOLUTION & THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

The program’s starting point is to create knowledge/education networks, primary and secondary school programs, and learning communities, and to integrate these into the human infrastructure. Enabling youth and community groups to use information and communication technologies (ICTs) EDUTABS will contribute to post-conflict development efforts. The program will establish dual-use Internet Learning Centers, open to teachers and students during school hours, and to the community during non-school hours. The program will offer training in the use of ICTs to teachers, students and community members to promote local economic and social development aimed at capacity-building, cross-cultural communication, and employment.

The program will focus on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Landlocked Developing Countries,Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and Countries in Transition (CIT). Peace education is an essential component of quality basic education. The program will define peace education as the process of promoting the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values needed to bring about behaviour changes that will enable children, youth and adults to prevent conflict and violence, both overt and structural; to resolve conflict peacefully; and to create the conditions conducive to peace, whether at an intra-personal, interpersonal, intergroup, national or international level.

Peace education programmes have been developed in a number of UNICEF country offices and National Committees for UNICEF over the past decade. Ideas are continually evolving about how to use the full range of children’s educational experiences to promote commitment to principles of peace and social justice.

Hence we can plan to implement education softwares for children as well as adults to take part in such program in support of the UN Culture of Peace Resolution and the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 Agenda.

EDU-AID SCHOLARSHIPS AND SPONSORS

THE IIMSAM CHILDREN IN KENYA ENROLLED FOR IIMSAM EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME 2016 THANK THE IIMSAM AMBASSADOR H.E. PRATEEK KUMAR FOR HIS KIND GESTURE WITH A CONTRIBUTION ON THEIR BEHALF IN SUPPORT OF THEIR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME EXPANSION 2015 – 2016 AT THE SHEIKH ZAYED CENTRE – KENYA

(Fredrick Lwamba, IIMSAM’S Field and Administrative Director, seen on left with youngsters who benefited from the expansion of the educational programme at the Sheikh Zayed Centre along with Colleagues: Mr. Essombo and Mrs. Grace.).

The over 100 IIMSAM children on the ECDE and Primary School Programme cease this opportunity to sincerely convey their heartfelt special thanks to the (photo-rt) IIMSAM Ambassador H.E. Prateek Kumar for his kindness in supporting their ongoing IIMSAM Educational programme.

The support rendered has converted into the completion for the construction of a temporary structure made of iron sheets to house two classrooms and aid in the acquisition of some of the very basic requirements for an average learning environment. An additional teacher on volunteer services will be assisting and benefitting the Programme under this arrangement.

The support was a break through to help expedite to the next level of IIMSAM educational programme in support of the needy children. It is and has not been possible to admit to the center the full board dependent beneficiary scholars including the IIMSAM twins because (See last newsletter.) it is financially not sealable to maintain their sustainability long term at the moment to take care of their day to day accommodation and other related needs at the center. IIMSAM education programme encourages close monitoring of children who are on the Spirulina feeding programme so that they remain steadfast on the programme and helps in ensuring the completion of the feeding circle so that they are eventually reaping the abundant health benefits from the consumption of Spirulina.This will manifest into a much improved body health status within a time span of less than three to six months dependent on the nature of the initial individual health condition. IIMSAM is remembered and revered in Kisumu and surrounding districts for playing a pivotal role in helping save the lives of thousands of children and adults in Kenya since 2009. The children also thanked IIMSAM and its S.G. H.E. Remigio Maradona for the gesture an kindness demonstrated in its effort to expand the educational programme in spite of difficult and fiscal challenges for its sustainability. A lot more resources are however of necessity if reasonable impact is to be created and good results of a state of the art expansion is to be achieved.

We kindly request willing donors to come in their large numbers to this educational aid for the purposes of helping the community we serve to achieve a more permanent solution to help uplift the impaired living conditions and abhorred standards in line with and as per the needs of the UN Sustainable Development Goals No. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Poverty levels, Quality dietary balanced food for hunger reduction, preventive and curative health needs for good health and wellbeing, quality education needs, gender equality, clean water and sanitation are but among some of the concerns and necessities of this community. It is envisaged that advocacy for economic empowerment of these communities would be a total sustainable solution to reasonably better their living conditions and life style hence improve and uplift their living standards.

It is on the basis of the understanding of the above that IIMSAM Kenya has prioritized the impoverished community as a standard measure to be considered in its arrangement as a matter of priority so that with available fiscal resources it becomes mandatory for the affected to be treated on such an immediate attention hence the need for necessary action to be instigated to help improve on their health needs.

Guardian beneficiaries have always conveyed and extended their heartfelt most sincere thanks to the IIMSAM organization and the donors who have so far continued to contribute towards this mission including the concern demonstrated to ensuring their improved health through making it possible for continued feeding on Spirulina and for providing a platform of unique opportunity to help them live quality life and help them steer clear from challenges and dangers of malnutrition hence its related side health complications and subsequent fatal eventuality.

The adult beneficiaries who have continued to benefit from the programme have always appealed for continued similar and such support including where possible to be considered for programs that could better improve their lives and living standards. Above all, their hopeful wishes are that they are considered for poverty eradication initiatives, the likes of involvement in economic empowerment programs, hunger reduction initiatives, Health and education programs. All our adult Spirulina beneficiaries reside in slum areas of Kisumu Kenya. They live poor substandard life down the ghettos of slam environment with their helpless families. These families survive on less than a dollar per day. Their children have no opportunity to go to school. Hence, the IIMSAM Early Childhood Educational Programme is their only option. Thus, The IIMSAM Educational Programme will registered as many of them as possible in the 2016 IIMSAM School Programme. In this regards, the Secretary General R. Maradona has and will continue to work on gathering contributions to the programme with our current Members of the IIMSAM Goodwill Ambassadors Programme and others to advocate for the necessary funding to maintain its expansion and the long term sustainability of the IIMSAM Early Childhood Educational
Programme.

IIMSAM’S Field Director Commented for IIMSAM Newsletter: “We wish to appeal and extend a special request and invitation on behalf of the children participating in the IIMSAM School Programme for any willing donor including our IIMSAM notable donors to emulate the goodwill action of Amb.

Mr. Prateek KumarThe over 100 IIMSAM children on the ECDE and Primary School Programme cease this opportunity to sincerely convey their heartfelt special thanks to the IIMSAM Ambassador H.E. Prateek Kumar for his kindness in supporting their ongoing IIMSAM educational programme. The support rendered has converted into the completion for the construction of a temporary structure made of iron sheets to house two classrooms and aid in the acquisition of some of the very basic requirements for an average learning environment. An additional teacher on volunteer services will be assisting and benefitting the Programme under this arrangement. The support was a break through to help expedite to the next level of IIMSAM educational programme in support of the needy children.It is and has not been possible to admit to the center the full board dependent beneficiary scholars including the IIMSAM twins because it is financially not sealable to maintain their sustainability long term at the moment to take care of their day to day accommodation and other related needs at the center.IIMSAM education programme encourages close monitoring of children who are on the Spirulina feeding programme so that they remain steadfast on the programme and helps in ensuring the completion of the feeding circle so that they are eventually reaping the abundant health benefits from the consumption of Spirulina.This will manifest into a much improved body health status within a time span of less than three to six months dependent on the nature of the initial individual health condition. IIMSAM is remembered and revered in Kisumu and surrounding districts for playing a pivotal role in helping save the lives of thousands of children and adults in Kenya since 2009. The children also thanked IIMSAM and its S.G. H.E. Remigio Maradona for the gesture an kindness demonstrated in its effort to expand the educational programme in spite of difficult and fiscal challenges for its sustainability. A lot more resources are however of necessity if reasonable impact is to be created and good results of a state of the art expansion is to be achieveWe kindly request willing donors to come in their large numbers to this educational aid for the purposes of helping the community we serve to achieve a more permanent solution to help uplift the impaired living conditions and abhorred standards in line with and as per the needs of the UN Sustainable Development Goals No. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Poverty levels, Quality dietary balanced Food for hunger reduction, preventive and curative health needs for good health and wellbeing, quality education needs, gender equality, clean water and sanitation are but among some of the concerns and necessities of this community. It is envisaged that advocacy for economic empowerment of these communities would be a total sustainable solution to reasonably better their living conditions and life style hence improve and uplift their living standards. It is on the basis of the understanding of the above that IIMSAM Kenya has prioritized the impoverished community as a standard measure to be considered in its arrangement as a matter of priority so that with available fiscal resources it becomes mandatory for the affected to be treated on such an immediate attention hence the need for necessary action to be instigated to help improve on their health needs. Guardian beneficiaries have always conveyed and extended their heartfelt most sincere thanks to the IIMSAM organization and the donors who have so far continued to contribute towards this mission including the concern demonstrated to ensuring their improved health through making it possible for continued feeding on Spirulina and for providing a platform of unique opportunity to help them live quality life and help them steer clear from challenges and dangers of malnutrition hence its related side health complications and subsequent fatal eventuality. The adult beneficiaries who have continued to benefit from the programme have always appealed for continued similar and such support including where possible to be considered for programs that could better improve their lives and living standards. Above all, their hopeful wishes are that they are considered for poverty eradication initiatives, the likes of involvement in economic empowerment programs, hunger reduction initiatives, Health and education programs. All our adult Spirulina beneficiaries reside in slum areas of Kisumu Kenya. They live poor substandard life down the ghettos of slam environment with their helpless families. These families survive on less than a dollar per day. Their children have no opportunity to go to school. Hence, the IIMSAM Early Childhood Educational Programme is their only option. Thus, The IIMSAM Educational Programme will registered as many of them as possible in the 2016 IIMSAM School Programme. In this regards, the Secretary General R. Maradona has and will continue to work on gathering contributions to the programme with our current Members of the IIMSAM Goodwill Ambassadors Programme and others to advocate for the necessary funding to maintain its expansion and the long term sustainability of the IIMSAM Early Childhood Educational Programme.
