You can’t prosper as a country unless you educate girls

Dr Kakenya Ntaiya has set up a school in Kenya where parents must agree that their girls will not undergo the tribal ritual of circumcision and will not be married before they finish school. The Kakenya Center for Excellence has so far transformed the lives of more than 230 young women in Kenya through education. Some of the girls have studied in Australia and directors were told about it this week at an Ashurst luncheon- an inspiring story before International Womens Day. www.lbwtrust.com.au/dr-kakenya-ntaiya

An emergency fund for NFP’s

Open Road Alliance has launched a low-interest loan to offer NFP’s access to working capital and credit lines understanding that the goal isn’t just money making, but to benefit society at large. Organizations can now apply for assistance and receive a below-market rate loan with a maximum two-year window for return. The fund will basically cover three destabilizing scenarios: delays in expected funding (because some funder or investor had a management hiccup), organizational misfortune (like a warehouse fire or key staffer getting seriously ill), or Acts of God or Economics (devastating weather, devaluating currency issues, or shifting governmental policies). Open Road is encouraging other foundations and impact investors to develop their own funding mechanisms to better serve the needs of nonprofits and social enterprises working for impact. www.fastcompany.com/40534806/when-nonprofits-have-a-financial-emergency-theres-now-a-fund-to-bail-them-out

Aerogel to improve our lives

I propose to use graphite for armor: A type of Aerogel called graphite, is an amazing thing. It can bend, it’s stronger than steel, and harder than diamond. It is also very light and is the thinnest crystal we know about. According to the studies at Rice University, if you shot a bullet through graphite, it would absorb more of the bullet’s kinetic energy. This means that several layers of graphite could completely stop a bullet. Graphite can be used for electrical wires: Graphite is also a good energy conductor. It has electrical properties that allow it to transfer energy. We can use this to our advantage and use it to make electrical wires. The benefits of better conductors is that electricity can go through more easily than say, copper. Graphene can solve our water crisis: Graphene is a material that can also absorb certain materials. It can help our water crisis by absorbing salt and bacteria, as well as lead. Graphite is very cheap, so countries can buy lots of it, and use it for filtering. Airloys can be used for construction Airloys are like the older brother of aerogels they are alike in many ways, but, they are really strong. They are actually stronger than most aerogels, and cost the same, unlike most strong aerogels. So, this material could be used for construction.

A cashless debit card for disadvantaged communities

IMG_2085

The cashless debit card has been designed to help disadvantaged communities decrease the level of consumption of drugs, alcohol and gambling which impacts on the health and wellbeing of communities, families and children. It quarantines 80 per cent of welfare recipients’ payments for other living expenses. The Australian Government needs the Senate to support introducing the card to new locations when communities want it. https://www.dss.gov.au/families-and-children/programmes-services/welfare-conditionality/cashless-debit-card-overview

Clean water and power for remote communities

IMG_1981

For a few cents a day, people in remote communities can access clean water and clean power at a conveniently located box unit. Inside the box is a five-stage micro-filtration tank that takes in dirty water and makes it drinkable. Each box has solar panels sufficient to allow 300 families battery packs that hold enough power to run three LED lights for four hours and to charge two mobile phones. Grid Box plans to install units in 18 villages in Rwanda. https://www.fastcompany.com/40449777/this-simple-box-serves-up-running-water-and-clean-electricity-in-remote-locations?
