This idea is for unemployed parents who live in the cities. The main goal is to link people who don´t have economic problems and run out of time WITH poor people unemployed. HOW? Poor parents give their time and receive money in echange.

This idea will work by having a platform where you can put what service you´re asking for.

Who will benefit from this idea and where are they located?

By this way, families with short resources will have the chance to earn money in big cities at the time of providing a service. Why in cities? Because we know that BIG cities are likely to have quite BIG social differences. Moreover, as takning for granted that families want the best for their children, this idea will directly benefit them couse they will earn money to their human development.

How could you test this idea in a quick and low-cost way right now?

I will start making talks involving people to participate. Then, building a data base of people interested in having this service. Each service will have their own fair price.

What kind of help would you need to make your idea real?

This could be a happy idea, but I really trust on the fact that people who is unemployed should start moving in order to start earning money by crearting wealth.

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

  • This idea is meant to inspire. I hope someone else takes it on!
