Project Description

C&E System is a Marketing and Computer Science Startup Company that develops Smart Application Software in order to facilitate community development, alleviate poverty, environmental conservation, and promote Human Rights and social justice.

My model and source of inspiration is Jesus-Christ who had a concern for establishment of Social Justice. The Gospel demonstrated to us to provide care to the sick, give food to the hungry, and have compassion for the weak. Jesus talked about Human Rights, Social Justice as necessary qualities for the attainment of God’s Kingdom. He showed how and what to do in order to provide Social Justice, Jesus applied true leadership as being a Servant. That is why I use my knowledge to launch a business venture that will serve our community in order to establish legal Social Justice and Human Rights by making an efficient Parliament. I wish to emulate Jesus’ integrity and perseverance, in spite of unexpected challenges that might emerge against my business.
As a light and salt, I’m confident that I’m called by God to spread the light through my works of advocating Christian’s values where Darkness reigns around the world via my Business “C&E System” and Product “Smart Parliament”.

Project Impact:

Sub-Saharan Africa through its parliaments is supposed to achieve an era of efficiency through the exercise of their prerogatives, which requires that laws be drafted rapidly so that democracy, social justice, Human rights go a palpable advance.

Smart Parliament has two objectives:
  • To enable Parliaments to attain efficiency
  • To promote practical Human Rights and Social Justice in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Thus, our research and surveys have revealed to us the challenges that sub-Saharan parliaments are struggling with today.

That is why, C&E System developed a simple, user friendly Software called “Smart Parliament”, which will help Sub-Saharan African Parliaments to attain optimum efficiency and their Governments to establish realistic Social Justice and Human Rights, through passing relevant laws and acts.

History

It started in 2012, when I was doing my degree in Law at University of Lubumbashi, in Democratic Republic of Congo. I realized challenges that sub-Saharan parliament was facing and the pain felt by Parliamentarians. Therefore, these challenges have not been addressed by developers who digitalize parliament’s activities and task. I took three years to collect information of analyzing my potential competitors and parliament’s activities.

I mixed my Marketing, law and Development Skills to have “Smart Parliament” and created an organization called “C&E System”

Vision and Mission

My motto: "Africa is breathing" constitutes my biggest vision, which is to blow Africa and my country the Democratic Republic of the Congo in particular whose image is linked to evils and problems. I want to bring solutions to sub-Saharan problems through software, designed to make the community live and benefit the users and me who am a designer.

As an inspiration of Romans 8:19 "For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." And the summary of the book of Matthew 5 where Jesus Christ shows us the impact and role that we must have as salt and light of the world.

My aim is to contribute and address to my communities challenges through Software.

Needs

My software is compatible on all platforms, namely phones, tablets, and laptops.
Thus, display tests must be organized on each platform that will be available to us. However, we rely heavily on Blackberry, Apple and Samsung Galaxy mostly use in our Market size.

Apart from that the major need remains:
- Patent and Rights: USD. 900
- Office: USD. 1.000 / Rent Monthly with a deposit of USD. 6.000 / 6 months.

The following items are linked to the basic needed and are considered as the lung of our organization. That is why I was motivated to draw up a table with a view to specifying the nature, quantity, unit price and total price of what we are looking for in order to make my Business effective in the marketplace.
