Youth Fountain- poverty eradication and employment creation by 2022
Explain your idea in details:
Developing countries have now become increasingly aware of the importance of implementing development plans that are based on the aspirations of the people if poverty is to be significantly reduced. Our main objectives as Youth Fountain include sanitation provision in cities and poverty eradication through job creation. Studies have shown that over 8000 youths who are graduating every year in Zimbabwe cannot find employment. Youth Fountain wishes to engage the community in order to alleviate this problem. To ensure this happens we are going to apply for a tender from the local governments to clean the city through engaging the youth, thus creating employment for them and providing conducive living environments. Youth Fountain also seeks to introduce the adoption of digital screens and billboards for advertisement in Zimbabwe by the cooperate world as a way of reducing litter through use of paper for advertisement and this will also ensure that the depletion of natural resources such as trees to make paper is reduced. Wall cleaning, street sweeping, emptying and recycling of waste material are amongst the activities to be carried out. These will generate income to the organization.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The cooperate world nowadays has been consumed by the need to make profit at the expense of the natural environment. Youth Fountain seeks to change what has been regarded as normal by the society yet it has been causing harm. Its aim is to reduce youth unemployment by at least 15% of the total unemployment level. Our target is to have at least two points in the city centre where digital screens and billboards for advertising will be placed. This will eliminate the practise of randomly sticking posters. Furthermore, our aim is to have bins placed at every street corner. Recyclable litter will be sold to raise extra money to fund for the project. We will set achievable goals that we will measure ourselves with. Completion of a goal would mean success and if otherwise , we would sit down and review what needs to be added or subtracted.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Youth Fountain's sustainability lies in its aim to enhance the environment, the economy and people's lives. As a way of achieving the goal of sustainability, we will be careful not to harm the environment. Our business is to be cost effective. We will try to gather renewable resources through refuse collection in the city and at the same time develop some of our own cleaning equipment and this will create more jobs for the youths. To push the agenda of sustainable development, we will organise awareness campaigns as a firm which will put pressure to our suppliers and collaborators to improve efficiency and reduce damage on the environment.We will work in collaboration with the Local governments or City councils during the execution of its project. Capital will be raised through crowd funding and donors from well wishers . Other firms that have the same vision as we do will also be joined hands with in a bid to promote a sustainable city.
My name is Gabriel and I'm aged 20 . I grew up in a community that was affected by bad governance and economic instability. Despite all this, I always wanted to be recognized as a man who would change the system and place his mark in the society. Growing up in such an environment motivated me to work my way to the top. At the age of 13, I already had set up my own vegetable stall which performed brilliantly in our community.3 years later in high school being part of a business club also gave me an insight of how to manouvre my way into the corporate world .This taught me the skill to interact with my customers and negotiate my way into the real business world. Being a guy who reads most of the time, I realized that the struggle to be someone in the future was real . After graduating from tertiary college what would I do next. With my colleague, who has supported me throughout the way , we realized that something had to be done to solve this rampant problem hence coming up with YouthFountain. The youth need to be empowered and motivated. The hunger to see my people succeed in life made me want to come up with something that would enrich the community in all aspects. Striving to see another individual be uplifted is my interpretation of making the world a better place. This is what drives me to success.
