Overview of the Tower TV UG Project
There is a serious problem of a communication gap between the youth and the community. This has caused ignorance to them about their society. We are strengthening the means of communication and revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development of technology. We are also solving the problem of poverty which has led to reduced economic development. This is done by creating and disseminating powerful content. This drives and grows industry engagement to convene the encouraged networks of industry leaders and innovators to champion the SDGs. Hence forth raising awareness and lead action in support of SDGs.
Ignorance, gender inequality, and poverty are being solved by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of news and more sustainable ways of development through providing information. We take advantage of the readily and commonly available internet that is on a high use. This is based on the fact that 6 in every 10 people use the internet and modern technologies.
Poverty is being solved through sharing different ideas for example agribusiness talks where students show case how to practice agriculture activities like piggery, crop planting that the rest of the community could learn. Therefore aiding in food production thus reducing the rate of world hunger.
