Challenge

The project is addressing poverty and illiteracy. The project first started in Northern Nigeria and has now spread to other parts of the developing world. My solution offers means to refrigeration (which makes the food supply last longer), education, income and good health. My solution is of high impact because it provides a simple solution to an age-old problem.

Solution

We provide earthenware fridges to help boost farmers incomes. The fridges in turn liberate young girls from hawking so they can go to school and also halt rural-urban drift, keeping farmers around to increase the food supply of developing areas.

Long-Term Impact

The Project will provide simple refrigeration facilities to farmers in arid regions of the developing world. The fridges in turn liberate young girls from hawking so they can go to school while also halting rural-urban drift.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
