This is a partnership initiative submission between Clicksoft Solutions/Handup Development Organization and Free Ton…

Clicksoft Solutions Limited is an online developers-solution-provider for small scale businesses inclusive of a farmers based solution provider with an emphasis on bringing technologies to the food production processes and linking the ecosystems within. As an ongoing program, Clicksoft wishes to integrate the processes into blockchain and have chosen the Free TON network as the most ideal platform to implement that necessary upgrade.

In view of the foregoing, this proposal is submitted for determination by the greater Free TON community as one of the user cases necessary, and we believe a backbone to the African continent foremost natural resource – Food production.

MOTIVATION:

In line with the introduction proposal to this partnership, we intend to introduce this critical program into the Free TON blockchain to users. An immutable environment that all can trust. Our clientele includes farmers, suppliers of farm inputs, government functionaries, distributors and transporters, and their consumers.

Subsequently, we wish to introduce the blockchain resource as a means to transact and also act as an escrow to help in the transactions between different parties. We shall also encourage savings and investments within the Free TON ecosystem hence creating awareness of the diverse resources available to our users and all network members.

In conclusion our main aim is to utilize the storage facility within the Free TON network and in return we shall build an application that not only creates value to the Free TON community but also bring Free TON closer to the African grassroots with a solution to its main source of food farming.

Clicksoft developers who are familiar with the Free TON network code wish to undertake this integration process in conjunction with HandUp Development field expertise and other stakeholders.

Facilitating training in marketing tips and skills in agriculture products

Out of the 107 community members who were trained by HUDO volunteers on the production and marketing of products, 17 reside in Sofia in Kithimani Ward, Yatta Sub-County, Machakos County. The training workshop was for two days, on 27th and 28th Nov. 2020 for Kiimani Yoghurt Group. In addition, they were facilitated on participatory socio-economic analysis. The results, among other findings, indicated that 65 percent of the participants earn above Ksh 200 per day (which is about US$ 1.9, the international poverty line).

Other training workshops facilitated were on sustainable technologies in agriculture on different days for 200 members from 15. Out of those trained, 45 are able to practice organic farming and have been linked to Machakos Organic Co-operative Society for markets.

Why so many bot accounts?

You have a final request for 25,000 tokens right?

Give links to the social networks of your programmers specified in the offer. (mail is not suitable)

I can’t wait for this to be actualised and totally revolutionize how farming is done, especially here in Kenya. I think farmers are tired of the low farm gate prices offered by the middlemen.

Been there (small scale farming) and, for sure, produce pricing, supply of farm inputs and availability & flow of information have been a problem for ages.
The proposed solutions will help farmers big time and make farming a worthwhile investment.

This is a brilliant proposal. If actualized it could ultimately change the lives of community members, especially seeing as they will be equipped with the technological know-how of maximising on their produce… this has been a big issue for farmers for the longest time.

African developers are not bots. We would appreciate your constructive critism and not constantly lack of it.
Secondly,there is no Tons advance request only after Ist KPI.

Do your developers have any ready-made solutions in other areas? Can you at least demonstrate something? And also, if your offer is not approved, you will not develop this useful (in your opinion) product?

They are working within ABI Campus Hackathon as mentors. View the video of the launch attached and find their contribution to Free Ton https://youtu.be/0NygSnE3bw0
If the community does not vote for this program, we still have other items to onboard albeit the loss of the team and obvious to the beneficiaries mostly the African continent.
Lastly too we will discontinue the program altogether and at no time can we force a program that is unwanted to the network. Thanks.
