We also plan to financially help and work closely with third world orphanages, schools, colleges and universities.

Our free service will offer them a website, shopping cart, radio air time, advertising space for both audio and visual, professional mentoring connection via (voluntary work) and support to see them bud and flourish in their chosen field

Risks and challenges
We have had a dedicated team of volunteers who has helped us reach where we are today. They are now ready for Social Info Radio to morph into the bigger vision of reaching out to youth’s ad young adults around the world. They are all dedicated to seeing it through to the end as it has been quite challenging working with the existing equipment, limited resources, a website not designed to handle thousands of members and badly developed which has caused endless problems administering. So due to the fact we have been running on a shoe string budget, it has been extremely challenging and frustrating. In order to get our existing website redesigned with the features required, A bigger place we can rent for a studio for local volunteer staff to work in, which needs to include 2 dedicated studios with camera’s, a dedicated server, High speed telephone line, microphones, mixing desks, radio equipment, seats and tables. The only risk associated is not having enough time to complete the design ready for our speculated Re-launch of June 2016. We already have all our costing for all the above equipment, studio rent, website Re-design and High Speed Line rental including all projected fees for 3 years all included in our crowd funding target. So really the only risks associated is not getting the funds required to cover these costs in time, as I have managed to strike some really good deals with companies willing to offer a discounted rate on the high speed line, and and superb opportunity to secure a venue Ideal to house our radio station perfectly and in a prime location in London all below under market value. So apart from not having the required funds in time to secure those two needed elements in time before we loose the opportunity the only downfall would be extra time to shop around for something in our budget to take place of those we would of missed if we didn’t get the targeted funds in time. Anything over the target will go towards financially supporting our dedicated volunteer staff we already have in London and around the world.
