Ethiopia: Suffering from Poverty and Hunger

Better Essays
Research Proposal

Introduction/ Background Information:

Ethiopia has been suffering from poverty and hunger for many years. Most of

the people around the world are not aware of this massacre. Ethiopia is an agro-based country;

they have only agricultural labor to invest on. The drought in Ethiopia has caused a huge impact

in the economy. There are currently over 500,000 acutely malnourished children in Ethiopia.

They have been getting foreign aid but reports in the conversations with many starvation

victims confirm that the situation is still not improved. By increasing foreign aid, the foreign

country can get certain benefits, they can assure military assistance, gain land to search for oil,

and create an alliance. Our research study will bring awareness about the terrible situation in

Ethiopia to the whole world. When this research study is successful, our prediction is that

people all over the world will help and protest for more foreign aids. Ethiopia will receive

enough aid to invest on a permanent solution to poverty and many lives will be saved from

starvation and malnutrition. The funding company which funds this research study will be

greatly benefited because it will be appreciated and credited on all our research studies. The

funding agency will be thanked by the people all over the world and it will be known by the

whole world. We have high expectation that this study will be a success because similar work

has been very successful in the past years. Invisible Children Kony 2012, a video published by

Jason Russell which brings awareness to the world about the Ugandan criminal, was very

successful. They have captured the attention of the people around the whole world. The video

has gotten over 84 million views in just two weeks.

Proposed Work:

The intent of the proposed study is to learn about the suffering victims in Ethiopia. In

this research study, interviews will be the primary
