Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

We chose to focus on this challenge because we are aware that a lot of people have been suffering from this dilemma for a long period of time and we feel that we could aid them and aid the world by reducing hidden poverty. We hiope to create an app or software to improve the situation of these individuals who are suffering from a meagre supply of food ,clothing and other essentials

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

From our research, we discovered that the main demographic who suffer from hidden poverty are mainly people with disabilities and senior citizens.these people are often affiliated with a plethora of benefits but even those won’t suffice to provide them with the necessities for life

What have you learnt about your Hero?

We have learnt that they Face Many day to day challenges such as not having sufficient money to purchases food , clothes , or sanitary items. They also cannot apply to get government assistance as they don’t fall below the poverty line.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

We would want to improve their situation by providing them with information and assistance related to being to smart spending and how to get affordable groceries while also focusing and bettering their situation and moving them to a higher quality of life.

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

We have an idea maybe to create an app to aid people suffering from hidden to poverty to assist them to locate affordable and cheap food in their would be free App with paid Features that would additional to the Basic Feature on the app. You could order food and other ramme ties euch as clothing, sanitary products and more. That is what we are currently thinking of and working on. The app would also provide recipes and cooking instructions because we believe that cooking is a lode skill that everyone deserves to be aware of
