Our Framework

How we work
Solving problems are not solely about finding the right answers. It requires a broad but in-depth understanding of the complexities behind these root issues before crafting resilient solutions to make it work. 
At Solve n+1, each of our projects is crafted with the aim of shifting the needle in problem-solving for underprivileged communities. We take a multi-layered perspective in the process of analyzing these issues and developing solutions. By considering the various perspectives of a community, we are able to come up with robust solutions to strengthen communities in a holistic manner.​ The framework we adopt to tackle any social issue involves the six pillars that are necessary for a community to thrive. Fractures in one or more of these pillars will be identified before any creation of a micro-initiative.

The 6 Pillars
1. Infrastructure  
  • The basic physical and structural facilities needed for the operation of a society or enterprise​.

  • A key indicator of a developing/developed country and society.

  • This includes tangible items and resources of a community, such as roads, wells, buildings and businesses.

2. Economy

  • The state of a country or region in terms of the production and consumption of goods and services and the supply of money​.

  • The economic landscape of every nation allows us to understand where the nation makes money from.

  • We typically define a nation's economy based on 3 factors: Industry, Services and Agriculture

  • When we understand the percentage of how the economy of the nation is being structured, we would know what are some of the gaps and therefore the opportunities present.

3. Education

  • Education is the social institution through which society provides its members with important knowledge, including basic facts, job skills, and cultural norms values.

  • It informs us and forms the context of the economic structure - What are the outcomes of these skill sets we are teaching

4. Community Leadership

  • Members of the community that holds a considerable amount of influence within the network/s; with or without a position of power

  • Alludes to people of influence - people with significant influence over the community, people in positions of power, political influencers, etc.

  • What are the practices they utilise to lead the community?

5. Social Justice 

  • Many of the problems that the community face boils down to how we treat each other - particularly the vulnerable. "The test of a civilisation is the way that it cares for its helpless members." - Pearl S. Buck

  • In every community you are serving, how are they treating the vulnerable?

6. Culture & Spirituality

  • Every society is complex and unique.

  • Culture & Spirituality outlines the rules of engagement for any community to operate cohesively - a set of beliefs that are based on societal expectations.

  • Learning and understanding the history of one's culture and beliefs, helps us to better appreciate their behaviours without being blind-sided by it.

  • The specificity and nuance of culture helps us better understand what we are dealing with, helps us get to the root issue of things.
