Campaign successfully funded on: 24 Jul,2015
My Name is Jihane LARAICHI, I’m a coach for students specialized in Methodology of study since 4 years. My project is called EducationCM.’ My dream is to build a bridge between all African and Middle East students and their full potential professional future.
Many higher education students in Africa are not happy with the studies they are doing and many of them can’t find a job , the number of students is going to grow by 50% in the next 3 years so this problem is going to get worst. It will create an economic problem and it’s a frustration for the people cause they can’t find their work and when they do they can’t enjoy it or they are in the wrong careers, that’s a waste of money and time.
In most African countries (mostly in French speaking Africa) it's currently very difficult or quite impossible for the students to have on any websiteThe accurate and complete information and counseling to fully choose which higher education courses and carriers in their country are a good fit for them. Sometimes they even struggle finding the right interlocutor at the schools and universities.
Their main fear is that the school is not recognized or that their grades don’t allow them to access some schools. They have to search for fragmented information in many websites and the information is mostly not in the internet, which leads them often to wrong choices: for instance they study the wrong carrier that leads to no job or they can’ work with a non recognized degree.
GOAL OF EDUCATIONCM PROJECT
I initiated two years ago a project called educationCM which stands for improving Education by the Coaching and the Methods of study and work. It’s through a web platform that is freely accessible by the students and will be paid by third parties (universities, companies etc).
It’s first goal is to simplify and personalize the search of higher education courses
Its second goal is to help them know and achieve their dream carriers by opening their mind to without borders study opportunities and financing solutions.
Its third goal is to help them develop their scholar and professional skills and highlight ad match those skills with the training and working place.
I begun tackling the first goal two years ago, I decided to create a multi criteria database of higher education courses and I was confronted to the lack of information in the net, when it is published in the web its not reliable nor updated nor complete. I had a lot of issues with official websites that are offline during the registration months, with finding the right interlocutors in the schools and having them give the information.
With a lot of patience, I gathered a team and we difficultly built a database of 100.000 courses from 10.000 higher education schools and universities in all Africa and Middle East, scholarships, personality and job tests, job descriptions including video and article testimonies.
OUR ACTUAL PROBLEMS
These informations gathered need to be structured, updated and uploaded in the web platform and we need to create an interaction between the students and the schools and the companies.
The platform is operational but lacks of features and information.
I finance the activity by advising students in their carrier choice but Its not enough to finance the platform. I need your help to build a better web solution, to recruit 3 people that will upload the information and do the marketing.
THE RESULT THAT YOU'LL HELP TO ACHIEVE
Thanks to your donation the students won’t need any more to wait until the annual student fair to meet with schools, won't waste their time searching for wrong or inadapted informations in the net or after friends. You’ll help them not repeating years or changing carriers or studying in a non government recognized school, you’ll contribute to them saving study money, opening the possibilities to studying what better fits them in their country or in other countries or cities.
These are the FUTURE whole functionalities of the website:
- The students will access a multi criteria database of courses adapted to their study field (I have this degree, I need this degree in this field in this country and city). The added value is that they can search for the information of any country and any field including asked fields like the environment, oil sector. Then they’ll access the detailed information including the requisits, minimum grades required, modules taught, the price, the scholarships, the study or job descriptions, and contacts of students graduated from this school and now are working. They’ll be able to register online
- They’ll access personality tests, job tests, scholarships,
- They’ll be connected to employers
- The’ll have advices and counseling in their studies, orientation and employability skills
WHERE THE MONEY WILL GO?
dedicate the first 1.800$ to rebuild a small part of the web platform
By reaching 5.000$ we can built the whole functionalities of the platform
By reaching 10.000$ we can hire 3 employees that can upload the information
By reaching 15.000$ we can do the marketing
By reaching 18.000$ we can update the information and build partnerships with content providers,
reaching more than 18.000$ we’ll be able to
For additional 10.000$ we can link the platform to LinkedIn so that the student can do analysis on the job and training market
For additionnal 10.000$ we can create free live interactions between the students, the schools and enterprises by application (chats, webinars, online fair)
You can contribute too by putting us in contact with interesting partners, or volunteering with us.
