Plans for implementation and sustainability
One of the most important goals of our project is creating a sustainable force work through training the skillful workers/craftsmen on using the latest technologies in the favor of their work. Continuous mentoring to the craftsmen about clean environment, health and infrastructure and the the crucial roles of using sustainable tools. we plan to expand through social media advertising and influencers , also through meetings with workers in their own place. we will be hiring young trainees from the targeted areas in the non urbanized regions as to help them to understand business and aspire for building their own work in future. At a second phase (fusion phase) I am planning to include a sector for skillful worker& craftsmen with disabilities that doesn't affect their work but makes them less able to promote their work equally . Financing our project is depending on the partners and owners contribution , which can be called self finance then we will be using the expected profits from our work through in app advertisement and percent of profits from the users.
