NIRMAN,A FOOD TO THE NEEDY
Explain your idea in details:
My idea is to prevent the food wastage and reach these food to millions of poor people at a very cheaper price. Now the questions arises how will it work? Today if we see in party, hostel mess, restaurants, etc. if there are hundred people attending it then food are prepared for around 120 people so that there is no shortage of food. And we see that 80 or less people only attends the party. Now these 40 people food are wasted and thrown in garbage. Similar situation happens with restaurant and hostel mess. My idea is to buy those amount of food as soon the party gets over. My team will collect those food and preserve it and sell them to poor people at a very less amount. Since the amount of food will be less everyone will buy it. For doing this first publicly we will announce that Nirman (my project name) is going to buy all the extra food prepared at the mess, party, hostel mess and at homes. The main reason for my project to get success is that the people one who are going to provide us with those extra food is not going to loose anything. They ultimately going to earn from the food which they are going to throw the next day. Now suppose 10 kilogram of food are extra and if I buy it at 10 rupees per kilogram and sell it at 5 rupees per 100 gram to the poor people. Its provide me around 5 times more profit and half of my profit would help to reach those beggars free food who could not afford it at 5 rupees/kilogram too. This will create a chain all over the world which will help reaching the food to every hunger.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Everyday huge amount of food gets wasted. On the other side we see that there are millions of people who are dying out of hunger. No one wishes to sleep or die due to hunger but they are bound to do so. The main reason for this is money. Rich people have enough of their saving to afford nice and healthy food but what about the poor people and especially the beggars? Dealing with Zero Hunger:- As per my idea/project the price of food would be decreased to lowest amount so that each and everyone can afford it. Moreover the people who cant even afford it still, for them free food will be provided whose amount will be deducted from the 50% profit earned. Moreover my team will also create an account in which we will request people to Pay From Heart. And these money can be utilise to serve free food to as many people as possible. Now there a question arises why people will pay to us whereas there are so many NGOS running dealing with this problem. Well the answer is that if in a week 1000 amount of money is being donated then we would show live telecast of utilising it the very next week. In this way we will earn the trust of people and people will be happy seeing a little amount of their donation can bring a big smile one someone face. And if this idea gets success then a Zero Hunger Sustainable goal will be achieved. Dealing with Good Health And Well-Being:- As the food are being collected from the party, restaurant, hostel mess , home, etc. there is no doubt that the food would be healthy. And we are already providing the cheapest price for these healthy food.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My idea is simple and will benefit especially to poor people and middle class people too. Its also a good approach towards business. Definitely before starting a business we need huge amount of money at first. And also a valid reason for the investor to invest on someones idea. The last and utmost important thing is profit. Well I have already discussed about it in details under the idea elaboration section how my idea will give huge profit with less investment. As my idea is to buy the extra food and sell it to people. There are very rare business which deals with waste product. If money is invested on my idea within a few months there money would get doubled and would provide a huge profit to them. Buying food in terms of kilogram and selling them in terms of grams sounds itself a profitable business. My idea is a low cost and high profitable business. Day by day the rise of poor people is going on increasing. For these people earning is just for saving his and family from hunger. And my idea provides them the cheapest price for the healthy and hygiene food. So every poor people will buy product from my company. This will definitely leads towards a high profitable business.
My name is Rohan Kumar and I am from India. I am 20 years old, pursuing Bachelor of Technology in Electronics and Communication Engineering. I always wanted to do something new which is not in market. This led me to several new ideas for the startup. While travelling I often saw people like beggars smiling when they receive a single rupee. They sleep many nights and days without having a single spoon of food. They never give up and suicide rather they fight and face the struggle. And next comes the poor people especially the workers, labours who work hard day and night but receive a very less amount of money. And maximum of their earnings are spent on food itself. All these situations and food wastage at party really motivated me to think and present my idea infront of you. My idea will definitely bring a change and a smile on poor people all over the world. Moreover to remove hunger from the world can also be achieved by my idea. Its a good business idea too but I will be more happy seeing the peoples smile after getting benefitted from my idea.
