Idea Name: PAKI
Slogan: I'm a Healthy Pakistani!
Startup Domain: Environment
Abstract:
    Our society does not know how to dispose or recycle the left overs, so it litters. A better solution to overcome this ignorance is to train and equip our Sweepers!
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    “Churha” in Pakistan, that’s how we call them, receive a daily dose of social, religious and economic setbacks. Despite the strenuous nature of their job, they are recognized as untouchables.Apart from current policies which are lagging far behind international standards, our basic hygiene lacks.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   In our research labs, where a different variety of biological hazards and infectious debris are generated during experiments, the sweepers collect and dispose the fatal garbage barehanded, and without considering any precautions they are at a higher risk to develop some serious health issues.
How will the solution works
    We are volunteering to start a campaign to educate our sweeper community and make their work a skill by equipping them with some modern sweeping tools like electric brooms. We also aim to design a personal safety uniform for them and preaching the precautionary strategies through seminars. Media advertisements will help replenish their social status.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Every country has its own perspective regarding the sweeping occupation. “We pay top money for our street sweepers drivers and mechanic, if you have the experience we’ll pay you right!!!”. This is the advertisement tagline of the Star Cleaning, USA, Inc.
