Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

The statistics of death rate in Nigeria can be decreased if we can invest a little resource in the ROAD SIGN VENTURE. Most roads do not have caution signs to alert the consciousness of the road users thus leveraging greater skewness in the accident kutorsis. Something ought to be done now.

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if the statistics of accident per year reduce by 25 percent? What if the 25% can be sustained to longevity?
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

In the quest for longevity, there are many complications. this complications entails dual uncertainties: 1. God factor and 2. MAN factor Many people have lost there loved ones, fosters, anchors, hopes and sustenance to road accidents due to insufficient supply of road Caution signs. Many who use the roads for the first time may not know how the matrix of the road is and hence, they are vulnerable to accidents which may be fatal. we need a change

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

The Posting of about 1,000 road signs in Nkpor road and neighboring villages like Ogidi and Umuoji can decrease accident statistics of Anambra by 5-10 percent in the first 2 months. construction of mild bumps will also help indicate and alert consciousness of any road user making use of the road at any point in time. The use of COLOURFUL HALOGEN bulbs closer to danger zones can even wake a sleeping road user due to illumination and reflection. Many a people in this locality still doubt the efficacy of road signs due to ignorance, thus a campaign either by radio or publication will be use to disseminate the the concept and principle which is aimed at obliging the vulnerable road users to be able to understand road signs.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

We all understands the intricasies and permentations attached to road usage. It extends both to pedestrians and motorists. A man who drives from OKUZU to NANDO for the first time in Anambra at about 9:30 PM is bound to fall into a dirge. his Ordeal was never because of poor road but due to insufficient Road signs. since the roads has many sharp bends and some bumps were also constructed to reduce speed speed, he may fall victim of this lacking safety facility which is even cheap and affordable. taking this things into considerations, a call for implementation is proactive. Road signs makes road usage cumnly and enjoyable as one relaxes his minds and focus due to sufficiency in the necessary info needed top keep him safe. Go for Gold

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Interms of the time frame to achieve the vision and mission statement of this project, its a ready made output. everyday, life is saved. be it morning, afternoon, evening or night; the road is busy. people life that are initially vulnerable to accident are now secured and insured. Its not a Hitherto to 100% safety but its a sure_p that it contributes to the safety of both pedestrian and motorists/cyclists. Its is said that a stitch in time saves 9, i believe that a stitch in time can even save 99. there are disparities between "GOOD,BETTER AND BEST". Why we try to work towards perfection is to limit uncertainties. though Heisenberg postulated that its impossible to give account of uncertainties but by infatuations, speculations and assumptions, we can correct our path. Notably, the impact of the project can be visible thus: 1. Decreased percentage of Nigeria death rate per year.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

If a non-profit organisation/individual/activists can influence His Environment on Safety and precautions, it will convey a far message to the stakeholders, city-actors and government to adopt the concept so as to help carry on the project. Sustainability itself is not a statement, its an action planned for implementation, being worked on, and hoping to do more. The safety posts will be labelled the name of the financing body to convey the courtesy of cumnliness and charity. this can usurp a mercurial reaction from every mind that reads of the signs; thus sending the idea of preservation.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

This work has the simplest sustainability schedule. Advocacy, sensitization and lobbying of the Stakeholders of every town/communities the project outreach to will yield a return for the sustenance of the project. President of their town union/development board will add its maintenance to the finance budget of the year and the local government chairman will also allocate some funds for the continuity. WE CAN DO IT

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

I HAVEN'T REALLY IDENTIFIED NY OTHER PERSON(S) WORKING ON THE SAME PROJECT BUT I BELIEVE OUR PASSION AND SELFLESSNESS IS THE NITTY GRITTY FOR OUR UNIQUENESS. No matter who may have the same idea, we have the same mission/vision statement which is to preserve life and promote longevity. many families had lost their dear ones to the road due to lack/insufficient road signs. we want to secure the joy of many homes. We cherish to care and we strive to save. we are committed to deliver any info/idea or design that can foster sustainable living. SIGNS WILL HELP THE PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED KEEP SAFE

Founding Story

Once a KDSR for the Unilever nig plc; I crave for the uniqueness in style of the promotions and consumer/customer rewards the company do use on their partners to lure them against their rivalry. On joining my full course of comradeship, I always wished for an opportunity the company may use to give back to the people. Thus; on seeing this programme, I shouted a "Eureka" knowing that the unique program for the unique people is come. All I did was to recall the modus operandi of the company as at when we dock the HHT. What I recall was "do the right thing at the right time". I took up my pen and assured myself that the did is done. On following the steps and protocols of the project, I presumed already that am meeting HRH the prince.
