The research explores communication processes and functions within organizations. The research relates two programs of interest that compare and contrast within the processes of organizational functions. The two programs discussed in the research examine the issues regarding unstable households, poverty, and low educational attainment as the cause of low income. The research introduces the Basic Income Grant and Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend. The programs are studied in order to bring awareness to the importance of developing the funds, and how it relates to communication within organizations. The method of research is comprised of data comparison. The research identifies factors such as: a comparative case study analysis between the two programs implemented in Namibia and Alaska, the use of media, communication, and processes, the exploration of communication within organizations, how the organizations overcame setbacks, and the relationship of "Framing Theory" and "Modernization Theory" as it relates to communication in the real world.
