Our solution:

A one stop place of targeted push communication to parents – every child receives at the right time what she needs for optimal development: care, love, support, incl. a life long affinity to art or culture to serve as outlet in future.

Our pitch:

The solution is:

An online platform with educational age educational bulletin that gives a perspective to what what to expect and how to prevent

Accents: early child development, "programming" of mental and emotional health, importance of arts, toxic parents behavior, culture and sports role

How it addresses the challenge question:

It helps parents realise their behaviour leading to possible brain dissorders and avoid it.

Parents support kids in arts and culture activities. 

Finding their "outlet for own feelings and identity" in their childhood increases the chances to prevent from the most common brain disorders which usually start in the teen age.

It also help parents with brain disorders pay attention to it and find a way to cope with it.

It can easily be scaled by translating the texts into local languages and finding the local service providers (parents schools, art and sports occupations for kids).

The problem:

Early childhood is key and affects whole life, but most parents do not know this, they to not know how to give their kids the best start, especially the families at risk. 

Core:

  • Inadequate advices 
  • lack of on time alarm
  • technologies as kids’ "mental pain killer"
  • parents with brain disorders

Consequences:

Conditions, leading to higher risk for mental and emotional health:

-      obesity
-      depression

2. Quality of life:

- depression tops list of causes of ill health in 2030 (WHO)
- lower productivity - 10 bln lost working days (SOLVE)

Why our solution will solve the problem:

There has been demonstrated a very clear relationship between the experiences a child has in their early years and how successfully that child will perform socially, emotionally, and academically in later life  (Phillips, 2000). Link

Our solution aims parents motivation and  involvement in optimising child development.

Proven to work in Bulgaria

I calm down my fears, get informed on age development and find the necessary information on hot questions. Articles are written in approachable language with enough information and details. I am happy that I found a place to answer all my questions. Thank you!

The factors limiting our success:

I will make it for Bulgaria. Sooner or later. The question is how long will it take. What define the time scope is finances. 

I want to scale worldwide. The limiting factor is connections and knowledge of other countries ecosystems.

Why we're applying to Solve:

Habits to live, love and overcome challenges are the 3 simple truths, which need to be given at the very beginning - from parents, to children. 

My cause is children to receieve on time what they need for their health, development and realization.
