Transcript: Salad for Sight: Grant Proposal We are dedicated to combating childhood blindness due to vitamin A deficiency through providing nutrients necessary to the foundation of a balanced diet. Our goal is to aid residents of rural Cambodia in their journey to an improved life. Financial Projections Viability Schedule Construct hydroponic lettuce gardens Lettuce has the 5th highest concentration of vitamin A Easiest to produce Soil unfit for traditional methods Work with organizations in rural Cambodia to provide communities with supplies and manuals to treat vitamin A deficiency Hydroponic lettuce gardens can be grown using simple techniques and materials that are available worldwide We created an instruction manual, with images, and had it translated into Khmer We successfully grew our own hydroponic lettuce to test the recommended methods The Partners If we receive the grant money: November 2013: U.S. supplies will be ordered and shipped. Cambodia supplies purchased. December 2013: Gardens will be planted. Lettuce will began growing in cool, winter months. January 2014: First harvest of lettuce. Lettuce will begin to regrow for next harvest. 2014 - 2016: Continue supplying with funds for lettuce production. Future: Lettuce production sustained from profits of selling excess. Sustainable Cambodia Works directly with villages throughout Cambodia to better the community’s health care, food supply, clean water, education, and economy Helen Keller International Has numerous projects throughout Cambodia that integrate food sources high in vitamin A to the local diet photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Province of Kampong Chhnang in rural Cambodia Targeted this area due to its very high vitamin A deficiency prevalence rate River in the middle of province supplies water Contacts established in region Questions? The Community 228 million people living with treatable visual impairment Can not reach full potential Vitamin A Deficiency causes 70% of childhood blindness (World Health Organization) 23% of children in Cambodia have vitamin A deficiency Easily treatable with proper nutrition The Problem Sustainability Build fewer gardens Continual supplies for several years When lettuce production reaches its maximum, gardeners may sell or trade their lettuce Lettuce plants produce seeds for next grow cycle Grow bottles are recycled and would be reused Funds only needed for initial construction Cuts down on plastic pollution The Solution Cost per Grow Bottle: $0.72 Cost of Grow Media per Year: $0.72 Shipping: $300 Number of Grow Bottles: 325 Years: 2014 - 2016 Total: $1002 Megan Chang-Haines and Zoë Siddall

Transcript: Sclerites cover its foot form armor-like shield ~8mm long Biomineralization: composed of pyrite (FeS2) & greigite (Fe3S4) (Waren et al. 2003) Biomineralization: an organism incorporates inorganic materials in its structures. (Allaby et al. 2013) What has been previously suggested: since the iron sulfide is pure within the conchiolin (protein that makes outer shell) and forms an armor-like structure: the gastropod controls minerlization of iron sulfide into sclerites (Waren et al. 2003). Isotopic data from iron and sulfur samples concludes mineralization occured as a result of hydrothermal fluid, not bacterial symbionts (Suzuki et al. 2006) BUT..... Bacteria found where sclerites overlap (Waren et al. 2001)) Greigite, a component of the sclerite is sometimes produced by magnetotatic bacteria (Lefèvre & Bazylinski 2013). Perhaps a symbiotic relationship between Crysomallon r. and an episymbiotic (lives on and within host) bacteria that is capable of oxidizing hydrothermal fluids into iron sulfides... Experimental design.... Interpretation / Analysis If the gastropod without episymbionts displays sclerite growth, this supports the hypothesis that the gastropod is responsible for biomineralization Control and Experimental Groups Background The bacteria found in the gastropod are responsible for the mineralization of the iron sulfide and act in a symbiotic relationship with the gastropod. As proposed in previous theories, the gastropod may facilitate the bacterial mineralization to form the intricate sclerites, but the symbiotic bacteria undergo the actual chemical reactions responsible for the iron sulfide sclerites. 1: Attain C.

Transcript: To use technology that helps spark interest and keep students engaged in reading. Through a partnership with UMOJA, which is a program geared toward equipping young people with relationship-centered resources necessary to succeed, Bill J. Elliott Elementary School seeks to improve reading engagement and technology integration in minority students, by piloting a program over a three year period of time using iPads to maximize practical, analytical, and informational skills because the campus intends to narrow the achievement gap for minority boys in reading and minimize the number of behavioral referrals for grades 1-5. Professional Development This message will self-destruct in 5,4,3,2,1 Training will be included in this project to ensure that the teachers are using the devices correctly to broaden student's achievement. Mission Accepted! Fegus, E. & Nogueroa, P.(2010) Doing what it takes to prepare black & Latino males in college. In C. Edley & J. Ruiz (Eds.)Changing places:How communities will improve the health of boys of color(pp.97-139) . Berkeley and Los Angeles, CA: University of California Press.

Grant Proposal Presentation by Nakeisha Jackson Notes 3 iPad Docking Stations A group of African -American men from a rainbow coalition of careers and professions who have united(UMOJA) to provide a menu of services that help cultivate students into those that are prepared for personal, social, and academic growth. Age Appropriate Applications/Tools Mission Resources Mission: Debriefing: Nationally, African-American & Latino males are more likely than any other group to be suspended and expelled from school. National Center for Education Statistics(NCES) indicates that there are two significant reading achievement gaps between African-American boys and other student groups: they didn't score as high as boys from other racial/cultural backgrounds nor did they score as high as girls did from various racial/cultural backgrounds.

Transcript: Our team's experience and expertise enable us to create sturdy, sustainable bridges in developing regions. Addresses the underlying issue, which is the lack of accessibility to basic services, amenities, and trading markets. This bridge will provide this accessibility for the people of Dari by connecting them to the nearby town of Omereque. This will stimulate economic activity in the local area as 6000 more people will be introduced to the local markets. Bridge Opening Ceremony Emma Plum Increased secondary education enrollment and attendance Promote gender equality and empowerment of women Increased income and trade Increased healthcare accessibility Bridge Length: 120 m Spans: Rio Mizque Function: provides approximately 6000 people with access to education, healthcare, and trading markets Duration: 20 weeks Requested Funds: $71, 000.00 - Sand, gravel, and timber collected and processed locally - Other necessary materials purchased in the nearby city Santa Cruz de la Sierra Survey BUDGET -Construction does not require heavy machinery, but can be completed entirely by human effort -structure requires very little maintenance University of Toronto - Bolivian workers will be paid approximately twice the Bolivian minimum wage plus extra depending on skill level of their work 1 km from school, attendance likelihood decreases 1.3% Illness leads to cycle of dependance and poverty Indigenous rural students 47.5% less likely to complete secondary school Why build a bridge? Consequences 24% Sabrina Peacock Princeton University Scope Progress Thus Far Why is this the best approach? Evidence - Total budget with contingency is $88, 247.52 - We are asking for a contribution of 80% of the budget *Expected Traffic: 300 people per day* Increased per capita income in two years Secondary school attendance and enrollment Specialized farming increases Increase in number of visits to healthcare facilities Increase in number of retail businesses Increase in employment for women Political Scientist and Humanitarian Maintenance training for Bridge Committee along the way Erinn Scarlett Weeks 5-17 Our Team Former NGO Director Intern Sustainable Current Implementation In comparison to other possible solutions of building a school or health clinic within the village, this solution is much more feasible. The total budget for this project is $88, 247.52 while it would cost well over $100 000 to build a school or hospital Partners in Bolivia Zac Mustard - Local government has agreed to finance 20% of the budget plus the transport of materials Material Collection Local community 12% Reduced school attendance Limited access to healthcare and markets Reliance on family and neighbor support Limited employment opportunities 10-20% Effective University of Waterloo Aalok Green Contingency non-governmental organization We have planned several ways for external individuals to evaluate our progress and measure our results. Some of these methods include: Timely Progress Reports (Every 5 weeks) Measuring Bridge Traffic Analyzing School Attendance Records Analyzing changes in revenue through municipality records. Conducting a local survey of the villagers' opinions of their local bridge. Expected Outcomes Building permits approved, willingness to co-operate Government support in place 18% a group of professionals with a wide range of applicable knowledge and skills The Dari Project Evaluation and Progress Reports Description of Community Problem Implementation Budget Evaluation Bridge Over Troubled Water Organization Isolation University of Ottawa Architect Construction The bridge we create will give locals access to the city for at least 30 years.
