CommunityLED is an empowerment initiative devoted to poverty alleviation, climate change, improvement in quality of life, training and developing people to run their own entrepreneurial businesses based on alternative energy.
Our goal: to provide knowledge, technology and opportunity to light homes in Southern Africa using simple solar power and alternative energy technologies.
|These challenges are i.r.o the Southern African environment:|
1. The Educational system does not equip youth with relevant knowledge and skills to engage in activities outside formal employment.
2. Unavailability of jobs in the formal sector.
3. Lack of funding, living in impoverished circumstances
4. Unavailability of training for useful, productive and sustainable work
5. Lack of awareness re. opportunities
|Solutions to Share:|
- We have developed a business model that provides training and development in Solar / alternative energy specially targeted at youth.
- We have developed training manuals and workshops in alternative energy to understand, sell, and install simple low voltage lighting systems
- We have developed a carbon offset model that provides additional income for impoverished community.

Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC, http://www.tutormentorexchange.net
The mission of the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute (T/MI) is to gather and organize all that is known about successful non-school volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring programs and apply that knowledge to expand the availability and enhance the effectiveness of these services to children throughout the Chicago region and in other urban areas of the US and the world.
|I focus on youth living in high poverty areas of big cities. Such youth are|
* isolated, lacking the networks of people and ideas that are available to youth in more affluent areas
* alienated, distrustful of adults who make promises but do not keep them and systems that seem to view them as risks to society rather than opportunities for society
* under-resourced - their neighborhoods have poorer schools, less qualified teachers, fewer non-school resources and safe places, fewer job training programs and job opportunities, etc. than do youth in more affluent areas
* exposed to more negative role models and influences. High poverty neighborhoods have higher concentrations of ex-offenders, more people in prison, more people in illegal economies, fewer college graduates, fewer people in a wide range of jobs and careers who could model aspirations and open doors to opportunities
|The Tutor/Mentor Connection and Tutor/Mentor Institute have been aggregating ideas and solutions for over 20 years. No single solution fits every problem in every places. The most important solutions are that |
a) people in different places aggregate libraries of information related to youth issues and youth solutions in their own geography
b) people innovate ways to bring daily attention to this information so a growing number of the people in their geographic region are looking at the information
c) intermediaries in colleges, business, faith groups, media and NGOs/NPOs faciliate access and understanding of this information through formal and informal learning, MOOCS, social media, etc.
d) maps and other visual platforms be used to draw people to places in poverty areas of each urban area where they volunteer time, talent, ideas and dollars on an on-going basis, just as people go to retail stores to buy food, clothing, appliances, etc. on a regular basis
|I am one person who got involved in the lives of inner city kids in 1973 and has stayed involved for the past 40 years. I've learned to learn from my own experiences and borrow ideas from the experiences of others in an effort to constantly improve my own impact on this world.||http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-S-5YeHji7ro/Tni2NbwBJgI/AAAAAAAACis/XA7ds88eRg8/s320/Crain%2527s1_12_98.jpg|| Connect in these locations:|

I am not connected with any specific project as such but am always (time permitting) looking for ways to uplift the youth and their concerns. My current interest are StartUps, youth entrepreneurship, and creative service industries. No website yet but will soon be building one.||1. Not to be given their chance to demonstrate what they can do.|
2. Not sufficient and accessible mentors to facilitate success pathways
3. Limited access to success and growth drivers.
|1. Promote volunteerism and ways to incentivise them.|
2. Identification of self initiatives by the youth that can be rapidly scaled and multiplied.
3. Propagate inclusion principles among the youth sector and include others like the disabled, vulnerable, marginalized and others.

1. un employment due to the nature of our education system it emphasizes theory other than practical skills so majority end up as job seekers
2. Lack of start up capital for those who have the technical skills to start business, they cannot access credit from banks because they lack collateral securities.
3.HIV/AIDS especially among the female youths, who engage in sex in exchange for money because of poverty and ignorance.
4.Forced early marriages among the female youths due to culture , this is accompanied by violence caused by their husbands as women have no right to decission making in marriage .
5.Little or no education given to the girl child denies them them access to opportunities like competing for key leadership positions, this is because of culture . priority is given to the boy child .
-The education system should be revised to emphasize practical knowledge and skills to enable youths have the knowledge of starting their own businesses
-Set up vocational training institutions to cater for school drop outs.
-Start up loans should be given to the youths to be paid back after an agreed period of time who are organized in groups because in the group they co -guarantee each other.
-Youth clubs and resource centers where they can meet share experience and learn from each other and referral health centres should be put in place.
-Community sensitization on the relevant culture reforms should be organized

I am truly passionate about social entrepreneurship, and hold a strong belief that it is the path we need to follow to create the change that will last and whose value will benefit all.||1. Employment is still a challenge for the majority of the youth especially in the developing countries.|
2. There is too much competition, most youth in the developing countries may not compete favorably with their counterparts in other regions who have greater resources.
3.Most youth lack the self confidence to face the current challenges
4. Some innovations have impacted the youth negatively.
5. The youth have been stricken by an identity crisis, and become totally disoriented hence loosing track of their true self in fostering the change required.
|1. Innovation centers to foster ideation, innovation and development amongst youth should be created, |
2. The education system need an overhaul to handle the fast paced disruptive trend, I suggest

I work voluntarily with setting up a community-based tourism network i the Eastern Gothenburg, Sweden. For leaving I work for Friends of the Earth, Sweden with an information project on climate justice. Before that I have founded the first timebanking network in Sweden, www.tidsnatverket.se. Which is running and working with youth empowerment since 2007. see also Sarah Nyangena
|Beside all the challenges named I believe that the challenge for swedish society is the segregation of age groups. As well as a spirit where young adults are not seen as humans with own knowledge and experiences, human who can contribute to the development of eg communities, but as humans who need to be taken by their hands. Society leads their young people into an dependency on the system and other people.||See the people as the asset they are. Co-creating the changes and sustainable development|
That is one of the reason I have been working with timebanking. And why I know choose to set up a community-based tourism network. All people from the area can define, develop and present their own assets and the assets of the area to visitors by using community-based tourism as a tool.

(the real one is www.possunt.com but is under construction at the moment).
|Except for the big challenges in the world (poverty, environmental issues, level of education, lack of clean water) I think those are the big challenges for the youth of today: |
1. Fear (of mistakes, the unknown, of not fitting in, rejection etc).
2. Credibility (we, the youth, can change things but often we seem to be talking to the wall)
3. Prejudgement (very limiting for everyone)
4. Lack of resources (we have the desire, passion and skills but the resources to get something hands on are often limited and therefor it takes more time to make changes)
A social platform for the stories that matter to us.
[Possunt.com is still under development and not a functional platform yet.
If you want to participate you can ask to be one of the first users by sending a mail to email@example.com motivating why you should be one of the selected ones. Also, if you know a truly inspiring person, we would be happy to know about him/her and capture his/her story.]
Possunt is a new place on the Internet where people share personal video stories, no longer than 6 minutes. It’s designed for true stories that matter and manifestos that change the world. It’s used by everyone who care, whatever meaning one wants to put into that.
Possunt is a simple, beautiful and collaborative place to inspire and be inspired.
If you’re interested in having your video stories published on Possunt, here are few things to know about how Possunt is different:
1. Possunt’s stories are true, authentic and courageous.
Possunt puts a great important on inspiration. That’s why all stories published are true stories told by those who are true to ones own personality or character despite external pressures. The stories express the courage of showing up and letting oneself be seen –vulnerably seen, not being immune to criticism.
2. Possunt loves “less is more”
Possunt is a beautiful space for sharing visual stories — and

|Depends on their location and conditions. |
U.S. and Europe - disenfranchisement, they perceive they are not as valuable as they should be (theirs is a correct assessment); the challenge of getting a good education has emerged over the past few years; the challenge of managing technology and real relationships
ASEAN Region - education and jobs
South Korea - affordable education in critical thought, ethics and media literacy; better paying jobs; reformation of the middle and high school system.
Africa, India etc. - access to basic needs
|I don't have any innovative ideas, other than the simple love and care be showed to the young to meet their psychological needs. For education, this can be done via local mentors and technology (such as online learning from experts).||With the youth I focus on an expert/master teacher/mentor framing of an educational curriculum, out of which the youth choose the sections which interest them most at the time. Then they work with the teacher/mentor etc. to develop their own project. The model is Expert framed, learner directed. In the case of the very poor, they must be feed and given the necessary medicines first before they can hope to learn very much. |

The Geeks Gone Global 180 initiative is the driving force for Geeks Gone Global. GGG Innovation Excursions are designed to physically connect over 180 countries by the end of 2015.
|Motivation - Being motivated towards a single goal by seeing pass the noise |
Knowledge - knowing the skills and tricks to accomplish their dreams
Self-Confidence - With a lack of known successes many youth don't feel their dreams are possible
Access - Not knowing what programs exist limits their access to resources to change their lives
Focus - With so much noise it is impossible for youth to focus on one thing and dominate it
|In the end we have tried housing the youth and training them. We have tried contests and open classes, placements and fairs. The thing that works best, is not another program, but to drive motivated youth to existing programs and extend the reach of people who are active in the process of change. |
Existing programs need to partner with programs and organizations that can extend the reach of awareness into untapped communtities.

|I think the able leaderships of capable organizations would consider ways to generate employments and opportunities for job and personal development.|
Education and training project could be installed and liaison with the prospective employers would add advantage to the young people.
Vocational training projects would be initiated for the dropped out or less education or uneducated young population. Job placement facility should also be accompanied.
|I am working for a software company as a Technical Writer at the moment but I worked in the development sector before. |
I believe education is a must for 100% people. The world has progressed much in it but still there are lots of people who are not able to taking up education or sending their children to school up to a certain point.
So the gap should be fulfilled to further the maxim, education for all.

The idea behind Franglo connections is simple and is key to economic progression for our continent Africa and its partners. With franglo-connections we are spearheading bridging a gap between two essential cultures - Francophone and Anglophone. Recent statistics from the The number of french speaking people is set to rise from 250 million to 750 million with 80% of the people living in Africa by 2030. The role of both English and french cultures in economic life is more than half of the global market in trade goods. With all this in mind - it is time to power intercultural connections that can leverage economic development especially for Africa and Europe combined. Globalisation calls for understanding the power of mastering cross cultural business communication.

|Lack of Opportunities which results in a lot of wasted talent / loss of confidence leads to fear of leading great work|
Lack of innovative solutions for fundraising/ Lack of funds
|We, the young people must create our own opportunities and we should learn the power of doing - just go for it and learn from the journey. |
Do what you love to do and the results will be overwhelming.
Lastly , we should walk away from depending too much on aid, we must foresee and always ask ourself - how sustainable is this project?

We are hoping to becoming the biggest youth hub of socio-entrepreneurs in Rwanda.|
I am also a co-founder and senior-advisor of the African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC), the biggest youth network in Africa working on climate change awareness creation amongst youth. We are also working to promote green jobs opportunities for young people across the continent. The network is now represented in 44 countries across the continent with over 2000 members who are youth leaders in their communities.
|- Lack of technical knowledge|
- Lack of entrepreneurship skills and spirit
- Lack of mentorship
- Lack of risk taking spirit
|- Continuing capacity building of youth to develop entrepreneurship skills, for as to change our mindsets from job seekers to job creators. There are many resources out there, we just need to make this knowledge accessible to youth.|
- We need to promote peer leadership and peer mentorship. Most young people are always influenced by peer-pressure, the desire to please their friends...the desire to fit in the group. So we can use this kind of pressure as an opportunity to foster new thinking and positive influence amongst youth. This is just an idea.

I've persued the development of the region where there are many culture atractives. A lot of young people who live there are looking for work opportunities and to interactive more with each other. The old people are also looking for space to act in favor to develop the economy and culture local. I needed to stop with that project because I don’t have sponsors to support. |
The Community Based Tourism is a tourism segment which the community is the main character, they manage the tourism activities and develop the economy local considering the resources preservation with a sustainable planning.Through that kind of the tourism the people get to know the place in your real routine, they interact with the natives and the local enviroment.

2. Inequality is getting worse. It doesn't take a PhD in economics to understand why: we have a demand problem. And we have a demand problem because the vast majority of consumers – aka workers – are not earning enough to pay for healthcare, education and retirement, let alone all the other stuff stores and service providers have to sell.
3.Imbalanced geographic segments. The developed world has sucked out the life blood of the resource rich nations enslaving masses through their manipulation's of divide and rule.
4. The young wants to unite as one global citizen under new world order but lacks the very denominations of lasting change - hard cuyrrency to feed the hungry millions.
5. An act of class due to spineless leaders. The reality is that we're hollowing out the segmented class by wiping out well-paid jobs with benefits and replacing them with low-wage ones that often lack them. That's damaging not only to people who are living on smaller paychecks – or who are indeed unemployed – but also to the health and viability of the overall economy. Youth's are depressed with the lies their present system and its psuedo leaders controlled by their capitalist masters destroying the viability of this planet. Change is indeed the cry of the hour embedded in the soul's of youth to end vicious cycle of the grips of the 4% rich over the 96% mass though unifying the world.

|In Cape Town -South Africa|
Lack of positive activities/hobbies/sport
The Hands of Honour’s Regeneration of City and Soul program seeks to address three problems in Cape Town:
(1) Prolonged unemployment
(2) Physically run down spaces, and
(3) Effective management of obsolete stock/recyclable waste.
Hands of Honor employs vulnerable youth in South Africa—those who have experienced homelessness, crime and/or substance abuse—to up-cycle obsolete stock and recyclable items. Much of this waste is provided through partnerships with the corporate sector and would otherwise end up in landfills. Workers process the waste, either rehabilitating material or stripping goods for sale of parts.
Proceeds from this have two benefits.
*First, it provides salaries for workers who otherwise have no work options available to them.
*Second, profits are invested in derelict community spaces, focusing on public spaces which have become havens for crime,drugs and anti-social behaviour.
Taken together, these elements result in a program that can sustain itself, and contributes to a greener city, job creation, and reclaiming derelict urban spaces.anti-social behavior.

|Samida Women Development Forum, young single and Domestic Violence group known as SWDF was established in 2011 AD. It is a Non-government Organization and holds no discrimination among women on the basis of their marital status. It is dedicated to create an active network of young single women and domestic violence across national, regional and International levels. SWDF envisage creating just an equitable society where upon the likes of young single women are strengthened and empowered. SWDF defines Divorces and widows as single women through a nation have been effective since the words DIVORCE AND WIDOW are viewed with disdain including humiliation and agony. SWDF actively works to address the rights of single woman in Nepal by working exclusively with and for single woman.|
Women in Nepal are discriminated in various aspects of everyday life, right from cultural traditions to laws and policies. The situation of Divorce is even worse with foervasine marginalization from society. Young single women are identified as inauspicious, symbol of ill women and the cause of the leaved of their husband or widows of death of their husband. Furthermore their particular traditions and religious practices of our society which harm physical health and mental style , which lead to aggravation the suffering of single women and lowering their status in the society .
SharmilaThapa, the chairperson of SWDF and also a young single mother who envisioned the need and necessity to fight for young single mothers and proceeded ahead to provide right and justice to the targeted group formed the group.
|SWDF is to create a non- discriminatory and equitable society and also to help single women get empowered economically, politically, socially and culturally to live dignity lives enjoying values of human rights. At the moment it is working towards the betterment of young single women in various places in Kathmandu as well as outside.|| Being a divorced mother myself, I had made me understand the problem that a single mother faces in the developing society of Nepal . I myself had been divorced for more than 8 years and having a son had made me understand the problems and discrimination that a single mother get from this society. Over these years I had applied and also worked in many places and have faced the gender inequality. Well I was lucky that I was educated and also had some skills in my hands. Having completed my diploma in beautician ,I used to have a small beauty parlor, shortly after my divorce. But things don't go on as well as you wish. I was betrayed by a broker who told me that he would send me abroad for my work. Believing that friend I sold my parlor and gave him the money he asked for. But he never showed up after getting the money. Then I knew that I had to do something for my living. I worked on many places and happen to find that everyone just wanted to take advantage and use women. Women are always discriminated. |
Then I started thinking about all those single women and mothers in our country. I'm educated and have a bit of skills in my hands but what about those who are uneducated and don't even have any kind of skill, who are divorced, are widow. Who will understand their problems and lend a hand to them?
There is about 2.75 corer people living in Nepal. Hated by the society, discriminated, misunderstood they are always searching for someone who would help them without any negative intention, can understand their feelings and lend them a helping hand. I always wanted to help all those single mother and make them independent. It was impossible to do it individually. Therefore I gathered some trained women to help me out. And that is how this Samida W. D. F was established.

|1. Confused state of mind, lack of focus on responsibilities - I think conflicting goals (in career and personal life), work stress, high levels of ambition (where other important things like relationships and social responsibility are compromised) are big issues that need to be addressed.|
2. Growing up too fast: Loss of innocence in childhood, identity crisis, not open to feedback. Media (Digital and TV, mainly) is a great influence.
I think these are the fundamental problems that stir up others.

|1.knowing yourself = changing the world in the world you want to see the world|
how you see is how the world is gonna change around you
2.relationships are about trust & safety, honesty and empathy
syntony conversations are about the basic levels of trust and empathy first we open up to have a dialogue, knowing ourselves and others,than learn and share together, seeing possibilities and taking actions global to make the world a better place for our children and their grandchildren
4.from systems thinking into systems feeling into systems being is about head,heart,hands introducing this in the world
5. the principles of nature, the universal principles of a love declaration
|The idea of Leaders is important for me to help the young generation. Everyone can start at the Giordano Bruno Global Shift University and start dialogues in their environment and connect with me, each month in person or Skype to share/learn and take actions because of the strategical & tactical dialogues. Relationships need to be experienced that it is about being ourselves and trusting that it makes us come more alive if we open up. We are so much more creative and intuitive when we are feeling safe enough. I am offering this experience in a living system, living in the Netherlands and started a group Young Leaders. |

|1. SKILLS; The Youth may have the vision of what they want to do but the lack of the skills/knowledge to drive that vision may discourage them, cause them to lag back or even abandon the vision of what they may want to do.|
2. LIMITED HUMAN RESOURCE SUPPORT; In this area I address the aspect of those knowledgeable in various fields taking on the Youth top support them within the Program field they are involved in. This is not readily accessible to Youths, as more it is readily on selective basis.
3. FACILITATION; The funding is limited to give the youth a foundation to start what they have set out to do.
4. EXPOSURE; Within Africa, unlike other Continents there is so limited exposure to enable the Youths grow in wider knowledge about what they may want to do. This exposure can be directly (through travel tours, attend conferences ) or indirectly through reading materials, Internet.
5. GLOBAL CULTURAL BARRIERS; This is sin a way that it is such difficult thing to have a receptive mindset between people sharing different backgrounds and culture, even within the Youth yet its one way they can share within their diversity to make a positive impact. (Youth to Youth challenge)
|1. YOUTH EMPOWERMENT;SOCIAL Networking online and through Conferences, seminars and where possible; sponsor more youths to such events than it is usually done. |
Developing more platforms for the Youth Networking/partnerships and collaboration.
[I know of Tallberg Foundation has always done this through the Youth Employment Summits-YES]
2. Sponsorship Packages for Youth Ideal Projects; this need not be based on existence but the difference the Project can make if executed. And also offer them the technical support needed; Expert personnel to work alongside them for mentor-ship purpose.

[It means, i believe in a life where by when I am in a better place to access opportunities and source more, use it as a platform to source these opportunities bringing them closer to those who would never have accessed them.
