What category/categories do you want to address with your idea?
Recreation
Describe the need or problem you want to address
Responsible will address various problems affecting Belize from crime and violence to drug, woman and child abuse. The goal, in addressing these problems, is to attack it at the source, people’s attitude and mind set towards given situation. The general idea is to spark a change in our way of thinking when faced with difficult situation with the intent to show other options to a peaceful and reasonable solution.
What is the main product or service you will offer?
The main service that will be provided is the distribution of educational information. Information that will bring about the realization that you are responsible for your own actions. Thus, clearing a path and pointing the way to a new and better Belize all through the means of entertainment.
Briefly describe the community or population that will benefit from your solution and how do you plan to involve them in the project
The at-risk teens to adults living in the community will benefit most from this proposal because they will get their chance to tell their story. At the same time exposing the people to a new and exciting employment opportunities in the film industry.
Does your proposal have a business model (i.e. strategy to generate revenue)? Please describe
Yes and No. Yes because the success of the program will rely heavily on the support of the business community whether it be sponsorship, donation or common labour. No because the program was created with the sole purpose of educating and informing Belizean and not with the intent of gaining a profit. It will be considered a non-profit organization. I have a business strategy that will carry this project for 5 to 10 years with a plan to generate revenue after the first year making it self-sustainable. Although the plan is directly linked to the project it is not a part of the project and can only be executed based on the success of the project’s first year.

Hi Edmund, my name is Melissa. Congratulations on encouraging you to apply for your idea and to undertake. I find your plan, and your interest in supporting a severe problem in Belize interesting and your intention to be a nonprofit organization is right, however, remember that this call calls for the development of social enterprises that have a business model and that at the same time generate a positive impact. It is essential to think of a strategy that allows your project to be sustainable. About your product, by what means will people try to meet them? How will you get to them?

Season greetings and much thanks for the comment on my idea. My plan is for this project to run for the next 5 to 10 years. I want to constantly be reminding Belizeans that they are responsible for their own actions. With that being said, I do have a plan for financial stability within that 5 to 10 years and although my plan is directly linked to this project, it is not a part of it. Think of it like a catalyst: it helps with the process but is not a part of it. Hence, the main reason why it was not mention in my proposal. This project needs to be successful in its first year before I can set the "CATALYST" in motion. I am confident I will get the support from my Belizean people as I Empower them, Educate them and Entertain them. Let me know if I addressed all your concern, if not feel free to get back to me. I have a question, please explain what you meant when you said - About your product, by what means will people try to meet them? How will you get to them?...

Thank you for your reply, Faron. What I mean is that you have to apply for a business idea that contributes to solving or reducing the problem of crime and violence in Belize. Your sense of ​​implementing a program is good, but you have to think about business. A product or service to market for your plan to be sustainable
