Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

We felt that it is a big issue and that the issue has grown in recent times. Hidden poverty is becoming a big problem and we feel that it needs to be resolved.

What have you learned about the challenge that you didn't know before?

We know that it is a widespread issue and that lots of people suffer from it. Hidden poverty is everywhere and we need more people to become aware of it.

Outline the specific problem you would like to solve for your Hero and two or three solutions you think would help.

Our hero is a student suffering from hidden poverty. As housing prices and student accommodation prices rise it will become increasingly difficult for people to afford basic necessities. If we could improve one thing for our hero we would probably try and give him extra funding and help him learn about money management. A funding scheme for students or even lessons on money management.

Ask your Mentor anything.

What type of solutions would you suggest for this problem.
