Reduced form of hunger using technology especially in IDP camps and The world over.
Explain your idea in details:
The objective is to first reduce the level of exploiting people especially in IDP camps. In August 2016, a protest ensued in Borno N/E Nigeria where a group of inmates asked for the resignation of the food committee. If the peoples destiny is in their hands, there won't be a need to protest. So I tend to help in my own little way by providing them with answers using technology. Activities, will be to partner with institutions and government agencies to ensure adroite execution of the proposed plan. Approach, will employ the already established means of collecting money using credit cards. This cards will have personal pins and synchronized to each persons account for private use. Also, there will be a stationed machine that will be designed to accommodate healthy foods.However, the plan could be also used in Nations also. But here, apps will be needs to access the food just like the UBER app, but here, food accessibility is given credence
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
FAO estimates that about 815 million people of the 7.6 billion people in the world were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2016. FAO ( food and agriculture organization) also stated the four dimensions of food security as physical availability of food, food utilization .... and the like. Be that as it may, this ideas might not necessarily encapsulate all that growing number of globally poor or hungry people, but its a work in progress that will cater for people urgent needs in the world over. Success rate, unhindering drive to solve peoples problem might initially come across hitches, but with drive and purposeful determination, success will be recorded eventually.
