Abstract

Attempt has been made to investigate the reasons of poverty, flaws in reduction of poverty, lack of resources of dissemination of donor’s funds in real time. Previous studies reveal that there are various reasons behind poverty in the world especially in the developing and under developed countries. In developing countries, on the one hand, the known poverty causes are high rate of population growth, low literacy rate and lack of awareness about rights in the masses, on the other hand, low wages, lack of job opportunities are the also major issues. Latest studies also show that steps taken by the respective governments, World Bank, and donor agencies are much admired but miss-management in the dissemination of funds is the issue to be highlighted. In this century of ever-advancing technology wherein donations can be transferred speedily by the donors but in the light of their previous experience they have doubts about the dissemination of funds by the donation-receiving countries. To manage this problem a model is proposed to disseminate distributed funds in real time. This model is continuation of steps taken by donors blended with application of computer technology. This study will be useful first of all for donors, aid giving agencies and loaning agencies who will be able to access the details of their transactions in real times and also to know the position of end users who are needy, and according to their own will they will support by informing intermediate channels. Such practices will reduce the intermediary expenses with increasing productivity. This is transparent policy through which the donations would safely reach the needy masses.
