Making and Distributing a Poverty Solutions Map in Egypt

Poverty Solutions Mapping Egypt 2011 will encourage the efficiency and effectiveness of poverty relief efforts, principally via creating one simple multi-layer map to illustrate the gaps where no Poverty Solutions in Egypt are being implemented. It will show with compelling clarity a) unemployment poverty at relative levels and b) locations of sustainable job training support and encouragement and c) it can be published in an Egyptian national newspaper and also on-line, for all Egyptian leaders and international Donors to see.

General Mission

The vision is for mapping the population in Egypt to identify poverty so as to provide a tool to help the Egyptian government and other development agencies and Donors to target and plan efficient intervention strategies to lift Egyptian people out of poverty. And, critically, to be seen to be trying to lift people out of poverty.

This mapping wil provide an important feedback loop for democracy to function with more transparency and accountability, as such it will be freely available to all, without political or sectarian bias. It will inspire action at grass-roots, to create sustainable job opportunities, thus contributing directly to peace and therefore making the transition to democracy far more stable.

Vision

The vision is to make a ‘Poverty Solutions Map’ to Inspire Leaders within the political, business, social and academic spheres, as well as the NGO and Donor community, to Act.

And, critically, to be seen to be trying to Act.

Vision » Inspiration » Action = Peaceful Democratic Transition

It will show where the relative greatest needs are located for training young people and offering micro-credit solutions. The map will also show relative poverty, indicated by unemployment. It will show the existing Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and micro-credit programs that address issues in unemployment. The map will show where there are GAPS – where no solutions are being implemented, or the solutions are not powerful enough.

This map will provide a tool to help assist transparency of information, from the grass roots vocational training and micro-credit up to Members of Parliament and the Prime Minister – information affecting a critical constituency that can either cause unparalleled economic growth, or alternatively, unhindered civil violence and other disruption – the youth of Egypt.
