Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
In Minna, Niger state, Nigeria, the main occupation of individuals in poverty is farming alongside this is that they have a sizeable number of beggars,; how do we eliminate poverty from Minna using the main occupation of the poor there. A good number of those farmers produce local rice, this local rice is good tasting but has the problem of excessive stones, dirts, husk etc. To assist this community would be by investing in the rice production process, machines would be made available to dehusk, destone , package and transport the rice. Beggars in that community would be allowed to work, everyone would be placed in an area he or she functions well. And this is possibly the best way to fight poverty by removing communities from poverty.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
This solution can make a huge difference because it deals with communities meaning it is measurable, thus, for example in minna, the population is over 200, 000, let's assume the population in poverty is around half ( no statistics exists on indvidual states poverty ratio). Thus, lets say perhaps 100,000 people in poverty. Thus, this project when established based on communities (assuming a community has 10000 people )we
would be able to help raise those 10,000 people from poverty. This project would help people directly for those farming rice, their farms can be acquired or their products bought from them and refined but whatever, the case there would be a partnership that is concerned about those in poverty. This project is realistic and effective.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
Moving forward for this project is extremely important because it is in the fight against poverty, once one community has been successfully helped the next would be to help another community. Thus, in 10 years we hope we would have successfully covered 2 entire states from poverty with these states producing commodities that are known nationally and internationally. Thus, if for instance the project was successful in Minna, Niger state. The next move would be to establish thesame in another community in Niger state, until the entire state is covered successfully.
