What should it focus on? When you answer, please also give an idea on how it can be implemented. It will help me with my research. Thanks in advance.
Long term: Improved levels of education and health.
Medium Term: Helping micro businesses with advice as well as money
Short term: alleviation of poverty with perhaps a requirement that those it helps should give beck by helping others.
Long term challenge..we give them options
I love the mid term
Tell me more about the short term. More concrete.
Well what I have in mind is a contract something like
"We will do our best to get you out of poverty. What we ask is that in return you give time ( or money ) to help someone else".
There is a series in the UK where millionaires go undercover in deprived areas to find charities they can help. In the last episode the millionaire arranged to pay someone's wages for a year so they had a chance to prove themselves in the labour market. While not totally relevant the concept of giving back is important here.
So imagine the foundation took a homeless person as a client ( hate the word but it is useful here) and gave them food and shelter, the conditions being they should follow the instructions of an assigned mentor and stay off drugs and alcohol for at least a year. And is they manage to get to a point where they are self sufficient ( i.e able to pay rent and survive) they become a mentor for two other people ( perhaps not simultaneously), or working in some other charitable capacity And if they reach a point where they do not have that time spare they should give whatever they can, for example assessing how to handle other clients.
My idea is perhaps to build a network of ex-clients who help others as part of their repayment. Money is acceptable as well but should be a last resort.
Sorry if this sounds half baked.

After seeing Hubbers announce certain milestones such as view numbers, first $100 payouts and HubPages anniversaries I thought that it would be really cool to create a more automated and easily broadcast way to let other Hubbers know these milestones by sending them through the Hubtivity. I am...
