What is it?

S4G, the un-mediated, not moderated social platform

Have you ever thought you have something to “express” with a social dimension but never had the opportunity to do it?

Then S4G is what you are looking for:

  • Open, unrestricted and easy to use
  • Three mediums to choose from: TEXT, VIDEO, PHOTO
  • A way to express your ideas, reflections and expertise, on social issues and broader development and society at large
  • You do not need to be an expert but just passionate about what you share

Turning Community managed schools in the Air Asia of education

Full Text Sharing
Categories: 
Comparing public and private schools is a bit like comparing Air Asia with Singapore Airlines. There is no match in terms of quality. Yet fully fledged airlines are losing ground as more passengers fly no frills. The same could happen with community schools if they are really empowered and if we consider private schools more like social enterprises.

INGOs becoming “nationalized”, options and reflections

Full Text Sharing
Categories: 
Some international non-governmental organizations and INGOs are considering the option to create local twin organizations as “vehicles” to implement their activities in the country. A graduated approach that instead hands over responsibility to a trusted partner is far preferred. While both can be questionable, we have a real opportunity to reshape the sector for the better.

Ache in the back because of bag

Categories: 

With weight as equivalent to eight kgs, almost one third of their total weight; they walk, carrying their bags to schools. This is the bitter reality of private schools of different countries. I pondered why they have to carry such heavy loads on their slender shoulder. Doctors say it shouldn't be more than 10 percent of their total bodyweight. I did enquiry with some of the kids myself on that note. The responds I was replied to, really astonished me. They do it because of their schools' pressure, asking them to bring all the books and copies.
