As an entrepreneur, strategic communications professional, and policy wonk, I've worked on social innovations in the for-profit and non-profit world, helping to develop campaigns and solutions to social and natural resource challenges.

I'm constantly tracking and analyzing what make us as humans, inspired to act and respond to new ideas. This is where I share my thoughts and notes.

Farming Infographics in Africa

Figured I'd combine the topics of the last two posts, infographics and Bill Gates.  

Ok, so Bill Gates isn't going to become a small farmer any time soon, but the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sure is working on getting small farmers in Africa up and going with simple innovations. The answer to the world's problems is small farmers, and the infographic explains the vision for how better information, better seeds, better tools, and better storage all lead to an Africa with small farmers at the forefront.  With the famine crisis in Somalia getting worse, we all hope to see an updated infographic one day of how food provided by small farmers led to peace in the conflict torn country. That'll be one big innovation.

The infographic is, "a collaboration between GOOD and Kiss Me I'm Polish, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation." Read the original post by Good here

    Money and funds are a major resource that is required to carry out a project successfully and lack of it can prove a hurdle in this regard. Education sector has been facing similar hurdles from the budgeting sides unless an emphasis has been made to improve the practice.
