Economic prosperity is the state of flourishing, thriving and good fortune in regards to abundance of valuable possessions or money and plentiful supply of a particular desirable thing in one’s life.
The economic impact of the COVID-18 has been very severe. Vulnerable groups, such as the poor, informal sector workers, women, and youth, suffered disproportionately from reduced opportunities and unequal access to social safety nets.
In Africa for instance, the impacts of COVID-19 could push up to over 40 million people into extreme poverty, erasing an estimated five years of progress in fighting poverty.
Africa is a diverse continent offering adequate human and natural resources that have the potential to yield inclusive growth and eradicate poverty in the region, enabling Africans across the continent to live healthier and more prosperous lives.
For economic prosperity in our society, Palscity Foundation seeks to work closely with community members, to empower them through basic economic knowledge. To partner with different organizations and business entities in empowering the society on economic matters
Business and Entrepreneurship
Business is one’s activity of making a living or making money through producing or buying and selling of commodities. Business can also be an organization or enterprising entity engaged in commercial, industrial, or professional activities with the main target of making profit. Entrepreneurship on the other hand, is the ability and readiness to develop, organize and run a business enterprise. Business and Entrepreneurship are very closely related. A business person makes a business out of a pre-existing idea or product, and they usually do it for profit while taking very calculated and managed risks. While, an entrepreneur is usually the inventor of an idea or product. In this program, we seek to mentor more people in the society, especially the young people, to be self-reliant through business innovation. To enable them, create employment for themselves and other leading to a low dependence rates in the society. Our plan is to partner with experienced entrepreneurs and business people to offer basic business and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to the society. Also to partner with financial institutions who will offer financial literacy programs and if possible financial support to the ready entrepreneurs.
Agribusiness is a combination of two words “agriculture” and “business” and refers to any business related to farming and farming related as well. It encompasses all the economic activities that are related to farming. Such activities are: Crop Production and Farming; Chemicals; Breeding Farm Machinery; Distribution; Marketing etc. Food demand is rising each day due to increase in human population. Most people aren’t aware of the food market that is quite huge and how to utilize it to grow economically. Through agriculture, one creates an independent mindset. Investing in agriculture though the help of the modern technology will enable the society especially the youth, to become independent and focused individuals who will be able to create wealth out of their own efforts and in turn contribute to economic growth and limit growing social vices in the society due to lack of employment. Palscity Foundation will work hand in hand with various stakeholders in order to provide market for farm produce through e-commerce platform that gives opportunity to the youth and as well, connect them to national and international markets, meet food demand and create job opportunities.

Innovation is the art of coming with new ideas and ways of doing things. Infrastructure is the physical and organizational structures and facilities like buildings and roads, needed for the operation of a society. As we work hard all day to make the world a better place, Palscity Foundation, aims at making the members of the society especially the youth to be more creative in what they do and be job creators instead of being job seekers.

Agriculture and Food Security
Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness. Through agriculture, one creates an independent mindset. This is the spirit Palscity Foundation is set to instill in mostly the youth in our society. Investing in agriculture through the help of the modern technology will enable youth to become independent and focused citizens who will be able to create wealth out of their own efforts and in turn contribute to economic growth and limit violence and criminal activities in the society.

Climate Change and Sustainable Development.
Climate Change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time. It is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have been identified as primary causes of ongoing climate change, often referred to as global warming. The term “climate change” is often used to refer specifically to anthropogenic climate change also known as global warming. Anthropogenic climate change is caused by human activity, as opposed to changes in climate that may have resulted as part of Earth’s natural processes.
In this sense, especially in the context of environmental policy, the term climate change has become synonymous with anthropogenic global warming. Within scientific journals, global warming refers to surface temperature increases while climate change includes global warming and everything else that increases greenhouse gas levels effect. The main long-term impacts of climate change include: Changing rainfall patterns affecting agriculture and reducing food security; Worsening water security; Decreasing fish resources in large lakes due to rising temperatures; Increasing vector-borne diseases; Rising sea levels affecting low-lying Coastal areas with large populations; and Increasing water stress.
This program works to ensure a clear understanding that Climate Change is a major source of impediment to Sustainable Development and device appropriate ways of response to climate change in Africa and the whole globe. At the same time the program will focus on the dual relationship between sustainable development and climate change. Climate Change influences key natural and human living conditions and therefore forming the basis for sustainable development, while on the other hand, society’s priorities on sustainable development influence both the Green House Gas emissions that are causing climate change and the vulnerability, the program is keen on the need for the exploration of policies that jointly address Sustainable Development and Climate Change
Sustainable Waste Management Environmental Pollution management and control Program
This program works to ensure that each one of us takes responsibility on all waste produced. The program is guided by the principle that waste is not only the responsibility of someone who moves it around or who manages or disposes it. The program reviews and defines various types and levels of waste management and their respective responsibilities. It also works towards managing the environment to prevent and control pollution. Pollution is the contamination of the environment which causes adverse change. Living in areas of high pollution has serious long term health effects. People of all ages who live in high pollution areas for extended periods place themselves at increased risk of various neurological disorders. Pollution control is necessary without which the waste products from consumption, heating, agriculture, mining, manufacturing, transportation and other human activities, whether they accumulate or disperse, will degrade the environment. In the hierarchy of controls, pollution prevention and waste minimization are more desirable than pollution control. The areas under this program are largely categorized as;
- Effluent Waste Management.
- Space Pollution Management & Control
- Electro Pollution Management & Control
- Effect of Radiation Pollution
- Visual Pollution Management & Control
- Soil Pollution Management & Control
- Noise Pollution Management & Control
- Air Pollution Management & Control
- Water Pollution Management & Control

Cultural vitality is the creating, disseminating, validating, and supporting arts and culture as a way of everyday life in communities. People around the world had a range of cultural activities with different in significance. Non-profit organizations, Commercial, Public, Private and even Informal venues and opportunities for cultural engagement is essential to create the continuum of participation that enables robust arts practice and consumption, both amateur and professional. In addition to conventional cultural venues such as museums, theaters, concert halls and permanent facilities such as libraries, community centers, and parks where arts and culture happen often on a sustained basis, such temporary venues and events as festivals, parades, arts markets, and even farmers’ markets are important aspects of a community’s cultural landscape, particularly when these events are recurrent. Churches and ethnic-specific associations and organizations, and sometimes even business establishments, such as restaurants and bars that cater to particular ethnic groups, play important roles in both sustaining and advancing ethnic specific artistic practices. There is necessity of paying attention to the many different kinds of organizations that exist and the specific roles they play in fostering different aspects of cultural vitality in communities. Such organization are; nonprofits, public, and private/commercial; those with large, mid-sized and small budgets; those that are concerned primarily with the presentation of professional artwork; those that are artist-focused and critical to professional artists’ careers; those that seek to preserve tangible and intangible history and culture; those that seek to enable the invention of new forms of artistic and creative expression; and those that seek to advance and validate both amateur and professional arts practice. Non-profit organizations are key catalysts for both amateur and professional arts practice and collaborate with a range of arts and non-arts organizations as part of their programming and are important for a community-based or community-oriented cultural events, such as recurrent festivals. Palscity Foundation seeks to be the major venue for both amateur and professional arts and cultural practice by creating short-term and episodic cultural venues and events such as festivals, parades, or arts and craft physical and online markets.

Palscity Foundation intends to promote equality when it comes to gender related issues in order to provide equal opportunity for both genders and also be able to understand the sufferings of each group and get solutions to the challenges they face.
Health and Nutrition
Maintaining good health should be the primary focus of every one of us. According to Kenya Vision 2030 goals, Kenya’s health sector is expected to grow at a more accelerated pace than the economy. However, there are areas that need to be addressed in order to achieve the desired goals. Palscity Foundation strives to point out these areas of concern and come up with ways in which solutions can be created.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Palscity Foundation aims at shaping education in the society in order to improve lives since we believe that an investment in knowledge pays the best interest. The platform is set to reach out to the interior parts of the country and mobilize communities to give education a priority and we will also ensure that challenges faced in acquiring knowledge are addressed and solved.
Peace and Conflict Management
Peace is not absence of conflict; it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. Palscity Foundation aims at empowering the society to be peace ambassadors and to always promote peaceful co-existence in the society. Most counties have experienced violence especially during elections because youth are misused politically making them to be at the frontline in throwing stones and causing chaos. Palscity Foundation intends to change this narrative.
Religion is the entire collection of beliefs, values, and practices that individuals hold to be true and sacred. Religious beliefs serve a social function in human groups, providing a shared identity of where people come from and where they are likely going after death. Stewardship is a theological belief that humans are responsible for the world, and should take care and look after it. Believers in stewardship are usually people who believe in one God who created the universe and all that is within it, also believing that they must take care of creation and look after it.
