The 5 Ideas Used in the Mama Says Innovation

I want to tell American children, and African children, well, let’s be frank, I would like every child on the planet to know:
“You can download an e-book reader to your android phone from Google Play, and then we can give you 1000’s of digital books for free.”

There are millions of books you can read for free. So, how do we get the children off the TV, off the Internet, off Facebook, and off, and reading books? Maybe they need books that are fun to read! I believe a good teacher would help install an e-book reader on every phone held by a student, and make sure there were the 100 classics loaded into memory.

Now, did you know, 1 in 7 people on the planet do not have electricity, about 1.4 billion people on the planet?

Now, did you know, there are 7000 languages on the planet?

I am Andy Lee Graham, from Orland, Indiana in the USA, and I have lived abroad for over 18 years, and in 107 countries. It has come to my attention over the years, that aid organizations can have some good ideas.

How Many NGO”S on Planet?
“Across the world, the number of internationally operating NGOs is around 40,000. The number of national NGOs in countries is higher, with around 1-2 million NGOs in India and 277,000 NGOs in Russia.”

That is a lot of NGO’s, and a lot of good ideas.
(Please note, Mama Says to keep my mouth shut about all the bad ideas.)

I created a communication tool, we call it “Mama Says,” because most good ideas, the great ideas the aid organizations wish to share, are ideas that Mama Says would be good to do, for example, it,
“Mama Says to read books, it will make you a better person.”


How to spread a good idea around, like reading books on smart phone, to people with no electricity, and speaking some local dialect, some local language that few people on the planet speak. Well, this is what Mama Says does; it communicates good ideas to locals in their language.

How to market a good idea to locals who speak weird languages, with no electricity?


An innovation takes a few normal ideas, and combines them in a novel way, and creates a synergy, a more effective way of getting the job done.

Goal: To communicate to African children. “You can download an e-book reader to your android phone from Google Play, and then we can give you 1000’s of digital books for free.”
“Go to your local Internet café, DVD sales shop, and they will help you.”

Of course, it is the dream that teachers would be doing this, but, we know, making it profitable for the Internet cafes may work faster.

Normally, what happens, an aid organization drives up in a big Toyota Land Rover, talks to a few people from the village, the chief, the business people, and says hello. The hopes, often delusion ally believes this information is passed around, and why not?

Great ideas are shared? No, they need more. Pretend a Chinese person drove up in the same Toyota, Land Rover in Ohio, New York, or California, and started speaking Chinese. This is essentially what happens in Africa. The Aid organizations speak the dominate business language of the country, and the locals speak what they speak, what a disconnect.

How to bridge this gap in communication, this is the job of Mama Says?

Innovation is bringing together verified ideas in a novel way to more effectively accomplish a goal.

1. Children are attracted to televisions.
 (The television shows, videos attract the children to Mama Says."

2. Children understand their local indigenous language. To talk in the "lingua franca" of the country is confusing communication. Lingua Franca
(We show information commercials every 5-8 minutes in local language.)


3. Children think in their own indigenous language, understand, learn, and comprehend in their own language. To learn in second language, a foreign language is more difficult than learning in their native language, the language spoken at home with parents.
(The information commercials are in the local language.)


4. Repetition is effective learning, sort of like hearing the same commercial on TV until it drives us crazy, we do not forget.
(The videos play, repeat all day, one information commercial will repeat 50-80 times in one day.)


5. Children singing information commercials are interesting. While talking, or shows used shown like teachers, are boring.
(Singing the commercials.)


Higher education helps employment, knowledge allows people to make enough money to live comfortably. The only requirement for knowledge is books. Aid will only end, when everyone on the planet has the knowledge of the world free, and they know how to access it.
