A crash course in changing the world.
A major issue here in Nigeria is the
transportation of the food items from their various farms ton the city centers
where they can be sold for good value.
We lose a significant volume of the food produced
to every year to bad transportation system, storage, and a general ineffective
farmer to customer system. Ethnic crisis, natural disasters, and a general
migration to the cities have affected food production.
I know the problem of solving the food
crisis is large, almost discouraging to the point of making me wonder if this
isn’t just a stupid dream, an exercise.
But here’s one thing I can do, build water
proof bags, I know but if the objective is to save one person’s life, then
that’s what I’d do. We lose a lot of out grain to water, well not water really
just bad packaging I guess. The loose comes as a result of packing the grains
in semi-porous bags.
So I redesign the bags to have the same
strength, and volume, but have water proof quality from a material that is
biodegradable or recyclable. I’d also institute a refund system for collecting
the used bags.
I take it with this can help one farmer, sell more of his
produce, maybe help one family preserve their grain for longer and effectively
save a life.
Its simple it’ll Save one Person, It uses enhances a local practice.
