“I am so excited to be a Millennium-Fellow because of many reasons. First my country "Yemen" and many other countries have been destroyed over the past few years, so cities & communities got worse. I am excited and optimistic not only for our country but also for myself, I found a purpose and drive to motivate me in my studies. I am very excited not only will I learn more about the SDGs & the amazing work with other students , but I will also be able to have space I can use what I've learned to my campus-community. As a second reason, my major, “community-health" is so-related-to-the 17 SDGs.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Yemen is getting worse since 2014, cities and population condition have destroyed so I am looking forward to have a sustainable Yemen through this project . In this project, we construct-build up-a modern landfill for the first time in Yemen. This landfill consists of many parts, each part has a specific method for disposing and recycling them. One part for dissolving, another one for recycling . I mean I want to remove areas where rubbish accumulated and replace with permanent-trees and flowers. Study lands-protability to be cultivated, harnessing-efforts, machinery to extend green spaces on the Earth. Also part for the remnants of building for gases which cause global-warming affecting climate-change. Offer many machines for raising up garbage-grouping-disposing. My measurable-goals I hope to accomplish in August-November-2020 is that I'm looking forward to specific-planning-begin to study the project-feasibility. Studying the general- potential and targeted category&area. Budgeting &assessment needs. Time plan, prepare reports and results.
