I have a desire, goal, and a plan.
The Desire is to transform the lives of poor, hungry, and sick humans globally with the assistance of technology.
The goal is to create a Charity Organization with a USD 1Trillion program budget.
The Plan is discussed below: -
Poverty is a unique state of mind consciousness.
A mind that is negatively conditioned by malnutrition and disease since birth.
A mind that is severely influenced by negative ‘emotions and sensory stimulus’ from its immediate environment consisting of human’s (family, society) and physical features (natural, artificial).
Poverty cannot be alleviated with alms and random partial leftover unhealthy meals.
The first step is to increase the positive energy content of the body by providing healthy regular meals and medical treatment.
The second step is psychological healing by changing the environment i.e. providing clean, aesthetic living conditions, participation in creative activities that release and express negative emotions positively and, using holistic alternative healing modalities and products.
The third step is basic literacy and skills training for generating income.
The fourth step is to rehabilitate and reintegrate into normal society.
The fifth step is to maintain contact, follow up on progress and provide services as needed.
Technology will be an integral part of all the steps.
I intend to create an operating model that can be replicated in any location on earth having poor communities with appropriate local modifications.
Keeping this in mind, I intend to create the base prototype model starting with the poor who live and beg near the Kali Temple in Kolkata.
Assuming there are 1000 affected beneficiaries at the Temple site, the main steps and program flow is anticipated as follows.
Provide complete healthy meals 3x daily
Provide Medical treatment at the site
Discuss and transfer willing beneficiaries to the rehab. Center
Provide medical treatment and meals at rehab. Center
Provide psychological healing at rehab. Center
Provide literacy and skills training at rehab. Center
Assist in income generation and reintegration with normal society
Maintain contact and provide services as required
Repeat the process for the remaining beneficiaries at the Temple site
The full program cost will be known after the program is initiated and all initial mobilization costs are committed with vendors (for Facilities, Equipment, Materials, and Services) and internal manpower.
However, an initial gross estimate of the 1st year meal cost is provided below for your review and appreciation of the overall funds to be estimated and required for the complete program cycle at the Kali Temple site.
I also intend to use a % of these funds for conducting R&D into new technologies to develop innovative IT solutions for this and other social causes that I am keenly interested in. I will be engaging the services of the following IT consultants for these R&D activities.
Please follow this link to know about other causes that interest me; https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/ideation-dialogue-4-women-safety-health-support-complaint-atul-seth/?trackingId=%2BMtZ0OuQQH6a1vI%2FUsIkkQ%3D%3D
I intend to appoint consultants/outsource the following critical requirements.
Legal, Accounting & Audit, Project Modelling, Construction, F&B services, Logistics.
A website will be created for this cause and all details will be published publicly including audited financial statements. There will be complete transparency in all matters.
At this stage, I am soliciting funds for feeding 100 poor people and for key mobilization activities that are: -
Manpower recruitment and their 3 months salaries
Appointment of Consultants/Outsourced Service providers
Construction of rehab. Center and Kitchen
I hope you find this cause worthy of your support and contribute generously.
