Together we can

Published on June 4, 2020 um 12:04

Explain your idea in details:

The main objectives is to reduce poverty in the country by creating cooperatives and provide training by explaining to them the importance of working in cooperative and to help them to know different method of farming . For instance I will help them to know how they can cultivate in small space and get more productivity and to use hydroponic farming method because this system is not known in Rwanda . We will cultivate fruits like grapes ,water melon, strawberry,and others and vegetable like cabbage,onion and others . I will collaborate with different organizations and companies to help those cooperatives to get markets.

Your profile

I'm 25 years old and in A level I studied tourism and hospitality and I finished my A level with high grades . after A level I tried to search for job but I didn't got it , this reason helped me to think about the life of more people who don't have work and the most of them have families they have to care about. when I started to study in college in 2019 I was continued also in tourism and hospitality management but I saw that in Rwanda we are still having a problem of poverty after thinking about this problem I came up with idea of creating cooperative and train them about modern agriculture but not only to join people together but after train them to help them in order to implement what they trained and help them to find the market of their products, and I saw this is good solution of avoiding poverty because if many people work together they get more profit in short time and I'm very confident to succeed this competition because is ideas I thought about in long time."Together we can"

Most individuals see farming to be for the uneducated and mostly those educated are seen fighting for the few white coloured job slots available which renders them unemployment and causes high rate of poverty in the society. With your idea of creating cooperatives and provide training by explaining to them the importance of working in cooperative and to help them to know different method of farming will actually help curb the high rate of hunger I think creating flies on the impact of farming can also help clear the bad mentally towards farming great idea I believe this will be a success.

Cooperation , same as collaboration is the best powerful key to development yet many people do not know it. I like that you will sensitize Rwandans to work in cooperative, collaborate to achieve the same goal. Seriously, it will bring best impact on their life. Hydroponics technology is also good for Rwanda due to shortage of land. If it succeed, you will have reached your richness.
Challenging question managing a cooperative is a tough work which requires great leadership skills, are you able to do it?

June 28, 2020 10:14

Hello my sister. Your idea is good and usable because today in African countries, in my opinion, it is necessary to bet a lot on the tertiary sector like agriculture and to create cooperatives in order to provide for the needs of many citizens of the country and avoid the importation of food from abroad in Africa because Africa can also provide for the needs of its population. Will this agriculture be intensive or extensive?

My country India is a land of farmers too. I am impressed by your idea of creating markets for the crops of farmers to big corporates. This might give them additional margin with respect to the common people.I must say, packaging is very important is this business when you are dealing with giants or corporates. best regards from India.

The idea is good for sure as most of farmers fail to unite in order to gain profit of their produce from the market, so this will bring a huge impact in Rwanda. I wish you all the best in this initiative. Thank you.

June 23, 2020 13:09

It is a good idea that can be done and will help increase employment in your country, boost the economy especially in terms of agriculture and will help educate the people about agriculture.
I urge that education be made available locally in the country for the purpose of educating you

God be with you

Hi Grace, I have reviewed your idea which is based on uniting farmers together and benefiting from various horticultural produce. I would like to suggest that, the name used ''Together We Can'' is good but not selling the name, you may think of having a good name which is relating with what you intend to do. But also in ensuring access to market, it is better to be clear that who will buy from you and how you will contact them and also you mentioned Hydroponic farming, it is better to defend your technology why is it and not other types of technology and is hydroponic technology ensure higher yields? what about the health of the fina; consumer etc. But all in all, it is a good idea to be considered since you focus on food security and job creation.

June 22, 2020 11:25

"Together we can!"What a great adds on, for sure unemployment is a serious issue to fight in Rwanda and in the world at large. This is impressive to see your studies background and how you took a lead in thinking about how to reduce poverty starting form your own experience! Hydroponic farming method would certainly be promising. Keep it up!!!

June 21, 2020 16:17

Wow wonderful idea; I like it mostly whereby you are trying to bring farmers together in form of cooperatives because this is the missing piece in our societies ( we don't like team work). Bit still I would appreciate if you would plan to also extend your work by helping those farmers to sell their products.

The idea is very good if you get enough help because it will help a lot of unemployed and unemployed people, it will also boost the economy, it will help relieve poverty, people will have a good life

Hello Grace,
Your idea is great and it sounds good because it is boosting the life of poor people.Poverty is one main Challenge which is the foundation of inequality.
Best of luck.

Great idea to work and give to the community. being born and raised in unorganized and undeveloped society (maybe) but provided such brilliant mind of yours is an adds-up to change how you have been living there. so for the betterment of our universe , i am all in.
Good job.

Nice idea....I think what many Africans don't know is that no tree can make a forest...we need to come together and work as one...help each other especially in the areas of agriculture.

June 9, 2020 19:53

You have chosen such a great idea with an impact that is what people are in need of. Your idea is very bold, strong, and encouraging! I wish you the best, good luck!

June 9, 2020 14:52

in agriculture, cooperatives goes a long way to help in high productivity.The farmer come together and help each other in terms of manual labour and financial assistance. I have seen this with my grandma several times and I do appreciate their forming associations for themselves. This is a great project

June 8, 2020 14:59

@Marie Grace. I like the idea of helping farmers to organise themselves into cooperatives. I believe that when there are organised in this way they will see farming and as business and will have profit from their hard works. Well done dear. Please in addition to what you are teaching them, I think you should add the idea of "farming is business which GITZ has been championing" Teach them record keeping and financial such as expenditure and sales by this there will understand what they have spent and what their profit is at the point of harvest and sales. Well done dear. You man also see the GITZ website for more information to develop your idea

June 7, 2020 13:46

This idea is very interested one because it focus on agriculture as well as on poverty to solve any risk factors associated with poverty in Africa as well as in the world. I'm very happy to read this idea or project I hope this project will be very interesting project as it's topic also very interesting one 'Together we can' so as much as you can try to realise it and make it a big project which help Rwandan as well as Ethiopian.

Actually, poverty has been a major problem to most families and young people. In the world of today actually it's hard to obtain a job as the opportunities are less compared to the number of people in need of those jobs. Actually, people have to think otherwise when it comes to the issue of jobs, there is the need for more training and workshops that will bring positive impact to people, and eventually, they can use the knowledge to sustain their lives in terms of job and opportunity creation.

I have read your Idea and I know it will help many people in the community, the good thing about it is the use of small farm place to produce large output, One of my friend back here in Tanzania has been doing the same kind of farming technique and he is harvesting lots of crops and products out of his project.

I wish you all the best even if your idea won't actually get the help it needs for now but understand this you are creating a good thing the community and I personally love it.

June 6, 2020 20:35

You choose a very important an timely issue for work, thats great. The solution you think is also very good and as usually very hard. Considering issue I think it's important to go for implementation. All the best for you.

June 6, 2020 19:41

thank you very much to encourage me . I will never give up until the time I will implement this project . and it will be the first key which will avoid poverty even hunger at the same time ,and I know that it will be method different countries will use to fight against poverty . Thanks

June 6, 2020 18:17

Your ideas is a good one and if much is invested it will yield a good outcome. It is a way of improving and eradication of hunger and poverty in the society. Co-operative Society will help to assist farmers and conduct farming Education.

June 6, 2020 17:46

I think it's a great idea to collaborate with organizations in bringing people together to train and teach them how to farm and provide food for their families to reduce poverty and hunger. It's also good to see developing countries taking the initiative to sustain themselves by being able to grow their own foods and provide jobs for their people. But I have some concerns for you: where will most of your source of funding come from because if I understand you correctly it seems as if you're all over the place and it makes you look unorganized or your idea not well thought out. I hope you understand that if investors come on board, they would want a percentage of your business and the money loaned back and a successful one at that. If I were you I would try and get funding or a grant that's where you don't have to pay the money back especially if you're looking into the direction of becoming a non profit company.

June 6, 2020 10:18

It is always worth while to put food security on the front line. This is what supports people despite of the prevailing conditions. For example it has proved itself during the COVID-19 pandemic that alot of people need food for survival. Money is nolonger an issue but food. This idea has its name suggests, it will bring people together to grow lots of food as well as employment to many others.

June 5, 2020 07:28

Together we can. That\'s a very strong word and it\'s deep. Your idea is strong too. I will like to know if it\'s a non-profit venture you are starting? When you train them the modern ways of growing food crops and you find market for the grown foods, how do you plan to share profits among them?

June 5, 2020 02:22

Great idea nad the way on how to help people to overcome poverty by joining forces and all be part of a bigger development is what we need in this point of time. Where the only way to overcome these problems is to help and work together.

God gives you the light and wisdom.

June 4, 2020 22:33

What a brilliant idea trying to ensure availability of enough food yet creating employment opportunities for sustainable development.
Hydroponics is almost 100% efficient in terms of expected return, however its high running costs and maintainance is what poses a challenge.I hope your team will comprise of hydroponics experts to always walk you through the messy work.
Unless it a best applicable idea to combat hunger and unemployment

This is a great business idea addressing the issues of poverty affecting the lives and future of may youths in our communities, Unemployment is a major concern in Africa and it's may lead to uprising tension in any country and the implementation of such project in Nigeria where unemployment rate is on the highest level it's will be of essential help to the youths.
