A novel idea to elim­i­nate poverty

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - JAVAID BASHIR

The founder of Mi­crosoft Cor­po­ra­tion, Bill Gates has sug­gested a sim­ple so­lu­tion to elim­i­nate poverty from the world. Ac­cord­ing to the de­tails, he has planned to elim­i­nate poverty by pro­duc­ing chicks. He would do­nate 100,000 chicks to each poor coun­try for this pur­pose. He has done all the cal­cu­la­tions to gen­er­ate in­come from sale of chicks. Each chick can be sold for $5 in most of the de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. An­nounc­ing his plan, he said that the sale money can be used to meet the ex­penses of meals of the vic­tim fam­i­lies.

I think it is not only a novel but a prac­ti­cal so­lu­tion to erad­i­cate poverty from the ranks of poor coun­tries. All the phi­lan­thropists should come for­ward to par­tic­i­pate in this noble cause. The poor fam­i­lies will get a source of sub­sis­tence and sus­te­nance.

All of us should wel­come this bril­liant idea and work on it. We can make our con­tri­bu­tions to such great cause. Bill Gates has been al­ready help­ing to elim­i­nate Polio. We com­mend him for his hu­man­i­tar­ian sup­port. —Via email
