UNITED NATIONS ACADEMIC IMPACT AND MCN PROUDLY PRESENT COMFORT TOLULOPE OLADEJI, A MILLENNIUM FELLOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2019.
University of Lagos | Lagos, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 2 & UNAI 1
" I'm really excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I know that it will be an avenue to develop my leadership skills and also an opportunity to expand my network in a bid to make impact in my chosen field, food security.
I believe that food insecurity as a problem could hinder the growth of any nation, as a hungry person can hardly articulate his or her thoughts not to talk of find solutions to other pressing needs for survival, growth and development. My dream is that no African child goes to bed hungry. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Food Unite
My project is to feed people who are food insecure, thus advancing the sustainable development goal 2. To achieve this aim we partner with other organizations thereby, advancing sustainable development goal 17. We do this by enjoining individuals to donate their excess food which we give to people that are good insecure and through an app which is still undergoing development.
