Planning Electronic-Based Family Financial : Bridge Towards Welfare
Explain your idea in details:
The phenomenon of poverty in Indonesia and various other countries is a classic problem for the civilization of a nation, indeed so many efforts have been made to alleviate the poverty. But still, the problem occurs due to the factors that influence it, thus forming a pattern of poverty circles that can not be decided. The impact of poverty can weaken development and economic growth either micro or macro. The inhibition of human quality development due to people's knowledge of long-term financial management is not good. So the generation to generation remains poor or the needs of life are not fulfilled. When studied further, the central and local governments have allocated budget to cope with poverty that occurred. Its implementation through providing social assistance, increasing economic capacity and income and infrastructure development in various regions to absorb employment. There are other issues that should be done by the government other than simply providing assistance to the poor, that is, educating the family's use of income and assistance provided by the government for short and long term, because it makes people always depend on the government and many violate the use of these funds. Then, the habits of low-income people who behave consumptively and the habit of owing only to meet the desires that are not a top priority of their needs. The prestige of today's society especially those who live in urban areas are more concerned with materialism lifestyle rather than saving and investing for future costs. Overcoming those problems I offer an applicative policy that is, Planning Electronic Based Family Financial : Bridge Towards Welfare. It is an idea that is expected to contribute ideas to answer the problems of sustainable economic development, one of which is the high rate of poverty in Indonesia, including in other country.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The Impact of Electronic Family Based Family Planning: Bridge Towards Welfare is a more direct family direction in the future. Increasingly predictive lifestyles will shift to a frugal lifestyle and save money. Their children will also be able to afford the appropriate school fees they expect to even higher education. The cost of health insurance and adequate life insurance retirement period was quiet life. Because every monthly and even annual budget has been calculated, how much the expenditure and income. So, no bigger pegs than poles. Children can be educated if they only accept pocket money from their parents, have to save and make their needed budget that really needed not based on desire. Especially prevented-amid an increasingly lucrative trend of online shopping and many other offers, it is necessary that they be taught to live frugally and save money. Do not suffer from hunger because of a momentary lifestyle.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The program was previously coordinated with local government policies in collaboration with caring communities for the development of disadvantaged areas in order to alleviate poverty in Indonesia and even other countries. Then mapping the regions in Indonesia with the highest rate of poverty. So it is endeavored to conduct routine socialization with various activities in the region from the highest to the low poverty level. Holding meetings with women's development community or PKK activities, community leaders, counseling about family financial planning through cooperation with youth organization in each village, urban youth association to provincial level or university students all over Indonesia. Executed through extracurricular activities in schools and student activities in college. This program can be achieved when the enthusiastic level of cooperation from local communities and youth roles in various regions. This activity is not only up to the socialization or counseling but also the provision of training which continues to accompany the achievement of this plan and the soft skill training of the community in developing their potentials, so that the role of youth in serving the community really gives impact to the continuity.
