    My organisation (Orenda Foundation) is focused on providing hubs of resources to under-resourced township communities across Africa. We believe in growing entrepreneurship thinking and skills sets, in order to provide many low-income areas with an alternative to the current job-mindset in these areas

  • I would like to work on food security and livelihoods for generational transformation at Mekerani Village in Mchinji District, Malawi. The major challenge has been limited access to farm inputs, technology, and seasonality of agriculture. This results into perpetual food insecurity and high school dropouts exacerbating inter generational poverty.

  • The problem I would like to help solve is how we in South Australia can live in a changing climate - I work in the space of using documentary film in HCD, Monitoring and evaluation and measuring social impact. We are looking at using our storytelling methodologies in the communities that have been affected by the recent fires in South Australian. We will be looking at how the recent and continuing wild fires have effected people, individually, professionally and in their wider communities. We also will be looking at capturing ideas on what they can do personally and what the local, state and federal government can do in address their future livelihoods in a changing climate.

    Great Job, thats a good one, however it will be good if you could again seperate it into public and private employees. From there you could research based on average income for a given class.
    Moreover, as for me I think the system already allows for saving but the real problem is access to those funds upon retirement.
    Will love to know your method of approach. Please feel free to share more with us.
    Happy learning

    In many parts of the world, enterprise training and employability mentoring have been identified as key drivers of self-employment, poverty reduction, gender empowerment and crime reduction. In Africa Sub-Saharan Africa, unemployment and poverty fueled and aggravated regional crises in crisis-ridden countries . In Nigeria where the socio-economic and political landscape is presently volatile, the phenomenon of unemployment and poverty have compounded the tensed situation leading to hopelessness and haplessness in places like Plateau, Benue, Zamfara, Nassarawa and Taraba where people fight over land and water resources. Pathetically, the youth (male and female) are at the center of the crisis – they are used for both planning and execution of communal crises. The broad objective is to investigate the barriers to effective work-based learning programs and mentorship in Nigeria.

  • Founded in 2014, and incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission in 2017, Center for Maximum Eradication of Poverty and Illiteracy in Africa (Cemepia Africa) is a fledgling nonprofit organization with the mandate that is grounded on the eradication of illiteracy and alleviation of poverty within and outside Nigeria, across Africa.
    Since its establishment, Cemepia Africa has campaigned vigorously against child trafficking, forced and child labour, illiteracy of young people of school age, Nigeria being the worse hit recording over 10 million out-of-school children, the largest in the world. Though with a very large dream that transcends our present achievements, Cemepia Africa has done much with regards to children and women empowerment, provision of relatively quality but free education to the underprivileged, especially the victims of child trafficking. To go a long way and make this dream a reality, Cemepia partners with Iberekodo Primary School, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos, a universal basic education facility that gives free tuition to her teeming students.
    Besides, to the best of our ability, we have organized and given free tuition to the student population of over 300, many of who were once hawkers and victims of trafficking. In the same vein, in conjunction with some other indigenous NGOs of repute like Muritala Mohammed Foundation, Enough is Enough Nigeria and Tofik Humanitarian Assistance Foundation. We have equally made available skill acquisition to both children and adults in line with our mandate in hope they would become independent and ultimately contribute towards the development of the Nigerian State.
    At the free skill acquisition Centre which is situated at Iberekodo Primary school in Ibeju Lekki LGA Lagos, we have managed to develop and equip the training Centre with training essentials catering for over 80 people daily, especially primary and secondary school pupils and also the community members. In the nutshell, we administer training on these key areas --computer, carpentry, fashion designing, bead-making, shoe-making, catering and entertainment. All these come at no cost on the part of the participants, but has always been borne by corporate organizations and people of goodwill like you who believe so much in humanity
    On this note, we solicit your help in whatever form you can render it as Cemepia Africa has nagging needs that always scream the assistance of both individual and the corporate world. Our direst needs range from hardware –computer systems, sewing machines, printers, old furniture, shoe-making machines, cameras and funds. All these will go a long way in bringing our goals to fruition.

    Fantastic idea!! Entrepreneurship is the hot thing which can change the shape of pre-existing inconveniences of leading lives like economical unbalances, poor health, lack of hygiene food and mainly middle class mindset in people. What i feel is, it doesn't matter how financially great by the time you born, what really matters is how hard you fought to make you rich with all your uniqueness in presenting you. And for that being your own boss is must, it can be accomplished only by being an entrepreneur.. Is this senses??

    I would like to work for the education system all over the world and want to persuade the minds of youths that our education must add the subjects that help us with real issues we face in our day-to-day lives, about parenting skills, about relationship skills, mindfulness practices, learning to eat right things and so on.

    I would like to work on food security and livelihoods for generational transformation at Mekerani Village in Mchinji District, Malawi. The major challenge has been limited access to farm inputs, technology, and seasonality of agriculture. This results into perpetual food insecurity and high school dropouts exacerbating inter generational poverty.

    @cenkundwa This is such a great problem you are looking to solve. Its important in today's age and time where people and kids alike are so much junk foods understating proper nutritions required and locally there are various foods that provide proteins, calcium, iron, etc that our body requires growing up. And at the same time you are looking at climate friendly. Kudos to this.
