The paper "Strategic Advice for Permanent Aid Delivery Corporation Creation" is a perfect example of marketing coursework. After the attention of Melinda and Chan to the world advancement conference which is held twice a year has made them develop an interest in the enabling of project loop and stabilization of developing countries. This was after some firms which deal with information technology, education, engineering and aid delivery showcased their goods to be used in developing the infrastructure of the third world countries, whose growth is slow. Project Loon is defined as “ development and research on project development anticipating for the provision of internet access to remote and the rural areas. " (https: //en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Project_Loon) It involves the release of the hot air balloons being sent to the stratosphere for the delivery of WI-FI access.
They are also interested in the use of it, Project Loon, as a knowledge distributing method as well as in the advancement of those countries. They, therefore, go ahead and identify the organizations that can contribute to their Aid delivery project. These organizations are the Spider Light Strike Vehicle, a firm that processes fast attacking light vehicles which are mostly used as a fighting gadget by the Singapore Army.
Due to the high demand for the vehicles, it makes the high profit thus rapidly delivering aid to Chan and Gates' movement. Alongside the car company, they chose to use the Pouncer Drone, which gave aid to the victims of conflicts and natural disasters. In these company, the drone was designed to the hard-to-reach disaster area. It was to act as a supplementary system of aid delivery when used together with other systems made for aid delivery too.
(Anderson, 2012, pp. 27) This was after the investigation on its design where it has a vacuum that has packed medical supply and foods as well. Therefore this feature enabled it to qualify for the aiding movement. Pouncer’ s aim was to outdo the challenges that were being experienced by the groups that were working in different disastrous situations by the use of one aerial vehicle. Besides, they were in three sizes where the first mark could only carry 20 kilograms, and the second mark could Carry 50 pounds and the third mark which could carry up to100 kilograms.
Rokon two-wheel-drive motorcycle was used specifically for the rapid aid delivery. (Bebbington, 2005, pp. 84) This is a bike that can go anywhere despite the geographical look of the place or be it the rainy season of the dry season. This fact made Chan and Gates use it in their aid delivery mission. Background of the situation. The situation at hand is the development of an aid delivery organization. This should be then used in the handling of several disasters faced by citizens across the world.
These disasters can be brought by drought where the residents suffer from anger after poor harvests, and excessive rains bring about rain where some drawn to death, others lose their treasurable property, as other starve of anger. Besides, disaster due to wars in countries or communities bring about disaster as well, where people are not able to get to the streets and purchase food items, as well as disease pandemics, also form part of the disasters mostly faced by the society.
