Global Citizenship

Mention Bien

The philosophy of the website is to provide the best free content available in an ergonomic way and in to respect most of the African curriculum for high school. A special attention has been done to provide a more than complete content for students in last year of high school (Terminale): more than 3000 questions in English grammar, 700 videos in Mathematics, Geography, Economy etc...The best content and the best format has been chosen for every matter: this website has really been done by students for students !

9. Targets and Elements of Innovation
Please explain the targets and the background of your project: 

www.mentionbien.com targets high school students in french speaking african countries but we would like to involve also teachers and older students who can share their experience and guide younger students.

We are proud to provide the first educational social network in Africa and are working hard on the mobile version of our website.

What does it try to achieve and how: 

We are trying to improve drastically quality of education in Africa by using Internet  and the mobile phone. We want also to break the digital divide by letting people experience a tool that will be a bridge between students of the african diaspora and their young brothers in Africa. We want to help teachers teach another way, we want to help students have a new multicultural experience with our facebook like social network that allows people to create their own blog, express themselves on the forum or have a visioconference with more than three people for free !

Which opportunities/problems does it address to: 

We adress the problem of lack and inequality of standard of education in Africa. We want to impose a new standard of quality using just free content. We want to permit to students to have a minimum required level only with an Internet connection.

Please explain what is unique or special in your project: 

www.mentionbien.com is a project done by students for students. Who better than young students can know and understand the needs of young students anyway ? www.mentionbien.com is also the first african educative social network and maybe the first social network of this kind.

10. Results
Describe the results of your project as per today: 

A complete curriculum that covers last year of high school and thousands of content we are integrating everyday in order to complete the curriculum from primary school to high school.

A technical solution that is unique and that is helping people to really succeed.

How does it fulfill the users’ needs: 

A student willing to succeed or to make friends will find exactly what he is looking for:

- Succeed in high school by having a very good explanation of tough topics on every matter;

- Make friends, see them and discuss with them wherever they are in United States, Italy, France or Africa;

- Open students opportunity to a new level.

How many users interact with your project per month and what are the preferred forms of interaction: 

We have 6000 visitors per month and this number is growing day after day. This number will probably grow again with the marketing campaign we are trying to put in place.
