Targeted research and development
Targeted research and development has two main aims.
Firstly, it uses gap analysis to identify problems that the project has not yet tackled, particularly in relation to basic living conditions and necessities. We then brainstorm the most feasible and sustainable solutions to combat these issues, before seeing these initiatives from start to finish. Currently, we are exploring different ways of tackling the issues of clean drinking water, mosquito breeding and clothing shortage.
Secondly, targeted research and development focuses on improving processes currently employed in our initiatives. The committee streamlines the way existing initiatives are planned and executed through the integration of technology. For example, we have managed to circumvent problems related to the township's poor pre-existing geographical documentation by creating its own mapping system to document our progress in the township.
