Millennium Fellowship Project: Bioplus
Bioplus is a project that produces charcoal briquettes from biomass solid waste such as agriculture waste, human waste and also saw dust. We hope to produce at least 2 tonnes this semester and also emloy at least 10 people from the local community. We also hope to train at least 50 people on how to produce these charcoal briquettes so that they can also sell and for their own use( for cooking and heating).
I am also working on introducing two other projects, where for one we will be doing farming of groundnuts, use them to produce peanut butter which we can sell and also bake cookies for selling and the other project will be of hatching layers eggs, give them to people so that they start a project and they will return few egg after some months
