Our Focus Areas
Citizen Science Activities
Student research and data collection such as the mosquito larvae hunt down, DNA extraction from straw berries demonstration, Urban heat island effect using the NASA globe observer protocols and more
Engaging science policy makers e.g through Science GPS (Gains, Problems and Solutions) and Sciencepreneur on ways to utilize science for economic development in Africa.
The COVID-19 pandemic situation across the world and the scramble for vaccines has exposed to a large extent the inadequacy of scientific
know-how in Africa.
Implenting the SEEDA Protocol
The Science for Education and Economic Development (SEEDA) protocol is a ScienceSquad Africa initiative established for implementation by representatives of African countries.
The SEEDA protocol guides science stakeholders across Africa including teachers, schools, parents, government and other policymakers to make science a priority for not just education purposes but also for economic development. This can be achieved by introducing the New Generation Science
Standard (NGSS) of science engagement which applies the use of theory and participatory research using citizen science activities from primary to secondary school level as applied in developed nations such as in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Europe. The NGSS is a deviation from the status quo which only prioritize research engagement only at the tertiary level of education.
The protocol intends to motivate young people across Africa to embrace science as a career at an early stage.
Monitoring and feedback
Focused on innovative solutions
Close monitoring and clear evaluation of the projects will allow you to report concrete results back to your stakeholders, while creating a space for reflection to understand what might have gone wrong and whether there is space for improvement.
There is no doubt that productive cooperation between an NGO and a business can be demanding. However, when done right, strong partnerships will bring larger benefits for companies and achieve far more long-term and tangible results for the charity and for wider society.
Charityfy work have a lot in common with doing business: goals have to be set and results evaluated. By doing so, you can learn more about what you are achieving and whether there is room for betterment in the delivery of effective and meaningful change.
