INNOVATION SHOWCASE CATALOGUE


Who is Activate?


Activate! is a network of young leaders equipped to drive change for the public good across South Africa. The network connects youth who have the skills, sense of self and spark to address tough challenges and initiate innovative and creative solutions that can reshape our society. Activators have a shared purpose, commitment and responsibility to forge a better more just South Africa for the public good and for themselves. WhO is an Activator? An Activator is a young leader who joins this vibrant network to drive change for the public good, making their voices heard around the country. This could be in government, civil society, business, academia and their community. Activators have a shared purpose, commitment and responsibility to forge a better, more just South Africa - for the public good and for themselves. An Activator is a mobiliser, joining forces with other Activators and confronting some of the biggest challenges within their communities. An Activator is an innovator, coming up with creative solutions to challenges that seem impossible. An Activator is a connector, using connections to maximize social capital and drive change. An Activator is a trend setter, creating pathways for others in their community to follow. An Activator is a leader for public innovation, taking responsibility for being an effective citizen and leads others in the direction of positive change.


How is the Activate! network supported?

Activate! is built on an idea that through connecting capable young South Africans and building their innovation skills, they can bring about systemic change at a local and national level. To this end, the Activators (those who make up the network) are supported by an organisation which provides the necessary tools to advance their work. The journey of each Activator is mapped out by five pillars of learning and experience:

My identity

Development of a strong sense of self and self-worth

our identity

Developing a strong group identity and a strong active network of change drivers

LEADERSHIP AND INNOVATION

Thinking outside the box for innovative solutions and leading others to advance our communities and country

SOCIOPOLITICAL NAVIGATION

Becoming an active and effective citizen who can navigate the socio-political landscape

RIPPLES AND WAVES OF CHANGE

Mobilising to create ripples of change on a community level, and working together to turn those ripples into national waves of systemic change.

WHAT IS THE INNOVATION SHOWCASE?

The Innovation Showcase is a major highlight on the ACTIVATE! calendar because it is an opportunity for all Activators to gather in one space to meet each other and share their experiences and passions. Activators’ ideas, initiatives and project will be on show as part of the Showcase Expo and will add to the rich fibre of the event. Imagine two days of innovation, exploration, interactive workshops, inspirational guest speakers, sharing ideas around transformational change. “We are particularly keen to build connections between Activators who have a particular focus/interest area and there’ll be sessions dedicated to creating an opportunity for people to meet and strategise around areas of common interest. i.e. how being part of a national network can advance your particular cause? The Showcase will also allow all participants to reflect on the road ahead for the ACTIVATE! training programme and the growth of the network.”, says Landy Wright, ACTIVATE! Training Director. The whole programme for the Showcase is wrapped around innovation and inspiration to stimulate and expand thinking horizons as expressed through the theme: “Inspiring Possibilities”. This catalogue is a rich resource of project ideas that have emerged from Activators during the course of the year. It showcases some of those ground-breaking ideas and while some have gone into the planning phase, others have not yet moved beyond conception, and others are much further down the road and are soon to be up and running. Every project, however, is the brain child of a young South African who says, ‘How can I think outside the box to transform my community and country?’


Together we are stronger. tshepang mokgatla, Gauteng ACTIVATOR since 2013


For anyone interested in ACTIVATE!: this catalogue will give you a sound idea of the mindset of Activators and the innovative solutions they are coming up with for communities and the country. For the Activators, this booklet is a measure of how far we have come. It will, hopefully, serve as a starting point for a longer journey which sees many of these proposals and ideas coming to fruition. This booklet is a point of connection: it could connect people with similar interests or ideas and it could connect existing projects with potential projects. As ACTIVATE! will be recruiting many more young people over the coming years, hopefully this booklet will also be an inspiration to them. For current funders, facilitators and other staff members, it is a useful monitoring and evaluation tool – a tangible and accessible product that can be analysed against what we set out to achieve. For potential funders looking for start-up projects, this is a user-friendly guide on some of the ideas that have emerged from young South Africans thinking innovatively in the interests of the public. Please note that every idea or proposal in this book is the intellectual property of the person(s)’s name attached to that project.

FAMILY MATHS The challenge I am tackling … Lack of parents’ involvement or support in their children’s education, standard and quality of education, to bridge the gap between parents/schools, parents/children, schools/community My idea … Hosting Family Maths workshops for parents/children at school, churches and homes. Activities are based on problems, challenges, puzzles that develop high-order thinking skills, logic, deductive reasoning, etc. It is not important that a parent is literate or numerate, anybody can do Family Maths. How my idea will address this challenge … It will address the problem by bringing parents and children in a workshop. Workshops will be held in centres or schools or at home. Parents will be shown how they can get involved in their children’s education. Teachers are not the ones who will be facilitating, but community youth facilitators will be used.

IKASI YOUTH - EVERYDAY HEROES CLUB The challenge I am tackling … As is the case in many townships across South Africa, our small township community (Imizamo Yethu) is being broken apart by negative influences which produce poorly educated, under-stimulated and misguided high school youth. My idea … Ikasi Youth’s ‘Everyday Heroes Club’ is an afterschool programme developed specifically with township youth in mind. The Club runs workshops for a group of 12 high school boys. These sessions are focused on academic support, mentorship and personal leadership. How my idea will address this challenge … The afterschool programme gives youth the support they need in the face of negative influences. For example, over the past 12 months we have worked with and mentored a group of boys affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty. What is innovative or different about my idea … We don’t just provide academic support, we aim to equip and empower each young hero. Our desire is to create a programme that can be replicated and rolled out across South Africa. About me and my team … We are a group of Activators who believe that children are the future of our country. We aspire to equip and help them to be independent thinkers who can generate change.

EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT

Roxanne Denton

MY LITTLE TOY EMPIRE (MLTE) The challenge I am tackling … Awareness of the importance of Early Childhood Development (ECD) and how to do it effectively. My idea … Develop a facility where children are helped to play with toys in a way that stimulates their development and equip informal crèches with suitable teaching/activity resources. How my idea will address this challenge … As usage of the facilities will be free or at little cost, all children will get the benefit of ECD and this, in turn, will create awareness of the importance of ECD amongst the community. What is innovative or different about my idea … Instead of using formal education to stimulate a child that has never been to a school or received any form of education, MLTE uses toys (not educational toys, simple toys that are recognisable to the children). This is a less threatening, informal method of stimulating development which will keep the child interested and entertained, thereby creating a love for learning. About me … MLTE is a project under Hidden Halos, which I founded in 2011. I am 22 years old with a BA Psychology/Criminology. I am currently studying towards my Post-Graduate Certificate in Education.

COMMUNITY STREET SPORTS LEAGUE The challenge I am tackling … Gangsterism, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence and lack of community ownership. My idea … Organising a Street Sport league, specifically for communities ravished by gangsterism and substance abuse. Matches will take place on the street to attract community attention and build community ownership. Each community enters teams for each sport and will operate in a typical league system. How my idea will address this challenge … The streets of these communities are usually used for criminal activities and other social ills. Through this project, we look to use the streets in a positive manner to build community ownership, build on the sporting talents on the community and show a united front against these social ills. What is innovative or different about my idea … Community Street Leagues have never been done as a technique to address a problem . We find this a unique way to address the challenges in these communities, while building community ownership while also providing the vulnerable youth in these communities with alternatives to the social ills they face. About the team … Our team is made up of Western Cape Activators who came together to come up with this amazing idea and hopefully making it a reality.

How my idea will address this challenge … By using a rich natural resource in rural areas as a business concept (the best night skies), we will provide training and employment for local youth while stimulating interest in astronomy. What is innovative or different about my idea … We will use stars, a magical subject that has mostly been limited to scientists to date, as a rich business asset to create employment in rural areas. As a social enterprise we will be sustained through services such as telescope production. About me … I am passionate about astronomy and community development, working at the Johannesburg Planetarium, starting an astronomy centre in Limpopo and volunteering through City Year SA.

INFORMATION CENTRE The challenge I am tackling … Learners don’t understand the link between the subjects they choose in high school and the requirements for their chosen career paths. My idea … An information centre for learners in grades 9 and 10. To connect these learners to information through expos, experts and a one-day programme. How my idea will address this challenge … This will help learners to make the right subject choice knowing what opportunities are available. What is innovative or different about my idea … Generally, learners only vaguely know what they should do if they want to venture in a particular career e.g. if you want to do Law, you should do Social Sciences Subjects (History). But they do not know the different aspect of law as a career. This project will give a thorough understanding of careers by experts in those careers.

MEDIA, YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Thabiso Hlongwane

KASI MOTIVES IN ACTION - YOUTH PUBLICATION The challenge I am tackling … No platforms for youth communication in urban communities. My idea … Start an urban youth township publication (print and online) sharing positive stories of youth initiatives, solutions, opportunities, movers and shakers, and discoveries. It will start in Gauteng and then the intention is to go national. How my idea will address this challenge … This will be a motivating platform for youth to interact, exchange ideas and collaborate on issues directly affecting them and their environment. What is innovative or different about my idea … The publication will speak directly to youth and will only cover positive, inspiring news. About me … I started and ran a business called Kasi Mail offering services such as printing, video and email in Orange Farm in 2009 and have also tested a publication called ‘Good Life’ aimed at a more general market. I am passionate about creating something specific for the youth now.

Sinikiwe Fortunate Mqadi

PHUNGASHE COMMUNITY RADIO STATION The challenge I am tackling … Lack of awareness about many things including: how to access information such as constitutional rights and Integrated Development Plans, and how to apply for financial aid for tertiary education. My idea … A community radio station that will be an education and entertainment platform and a way to involve the community. How my idea will address this challenge … The radio station’s programming will reflect the needs of the community i.e. teaching on radio and giving the community an independent voice that is free from any political interference or agenda. What is innovative or different about my idea … Many community radio stations in our country do not address the needs of their communities but rather copy what SABC is doing. The power of community radio will be reinforced. The community will be involved in decision-making all the way to to programming. About me and / or my team … Sinikiwe Mqadi completed a BA degree at Rhodes University in 2011, majoring in Journalism and Media Studies, Economics and IsiXhosa.
