Lifesaver

A new concept:  Medico-Social Entrepreneurship in Mali

Aldjouma Dama, our E360 partner in Mali, has just initiated Lifesaver to tackle some of unequal distribution of healthcare structures in his country, especially in rural areas where there is little accessibility to basic healthcare structures.

Lifesaver will operate as a Community Clinic at social cost offering:

  • Free consultations for children 0-2 years
  • Free Prenatal Monitoring for rural women
  • A birthing kit including: obstetrical act, drugs for postpartum women and children, layettes
  • Monitoring and referral of patients with metabolic diseases
  • Services of family planning in partnership with Marie Stopes international
  • Functioning with  Renewable Energies( solar panels)

 Each rural clinic will include:

  • an infirmary
  • a maternity  department
  • a department of family planning

Lifesaver hopes to eventually make sure a medical analysis laboratory and an ultrasound unit will be available to each clinic.

Lifesaver is currently fundraising – with a target of $6000. ESquared has made a modest financial contribution to this worthwhile project  and will endeavour to support Aldjouma to get this off the ground.

Sport4 Employability

ESquared India uses sport as a medium to address employability. Using sports such as football as a learning tool, young people from diverse backgrounds and abilities can participate as players and managers and reflect on and develop their employability and enterprise skills. Sport in this context serves to support employability for young people and act as a tool for community regeneration through community ownership; for the community by the community.

ESquared South Africa

Football4Employability - Port Elizabeth Eastern Cape January 2015

F4E as a programme is a tool to address employability through the medium of football. Using football as a learning tool, young people from diverse backgrounds and abilities can participate as players and managers (including less physically able people). In doing so they can reflect on and develop their employability and enterprise skills. Football in this context serves to support the cognitive and meta-cognitive processes in terms of employability for young people. F4E also has potential to act as a tool for community regeneration through community ownership; for the community by the community.

Introduction

The South African Football 4 Employability (F4E) pilot was delivered in January 2015 in partnership with the Africa Foundation programme, in Port Elizabeth, Western Cape.

ESquared would like to thank the Africa Foundation, Woodridge School, all the leaders of the local villages, the young people who took part, their parents and others who supported the programme.

Scope

The two pilots prior to South Africa were delivered in an urban and semi-urban context but working in Port Elizabeth gave ESquared the chance to test the programme in a rural environment.

The 3 day programme was carried out on the grounds of the Woodridge School, Port Elizabeth.  We managed to access 150 youth aged 5- 19 both male and female.  One o the key lessons that came out of this pilot was that the programme should operate at maximum of a 20:1 student: facilitator ratio.

Pilot Development

The ESquared team visited several local villages along with the leaders to understand how to best work with their young people. The villages are isolated from the local urban hub but easily accessible. During the summer period (December-January) the young people are not at school and there is a need to implement programmes or clubs that will allow them to be engaged in positive activities. There are few good quality play areas attached to the local schools.  Whilst there is space for pitches and courts for students to play on there aren’t sufficient funds for the community to access development of facilities.

Future Scope

During the three day event the team became more familiar with the age and gender demographic and context of the young people. Other than football, the young people often participated in the sports of: netball (primarily the girls), cricket, rugby and baseball. Their interaction with these other sports has sparked an interest to push for Netball 4 Employability. The introduction of N4E will not only expand the wider Sport 4 Employability reach but may also be more inclusive of girls being able to engage in the employability training offered.
