" Astonishing as it is, there is more fruit in a rich man's shampoo than there is on a poor man's plate. And my sheer knowledge of this fact is as infuriating as it is equally insipiring. I intend to use my platform and the knowledge I will gain as a Millennium Fellow to educate and raise awareness on childhood hunger and malnutrition. I am also excited to work with non profit organizations to further help communities and locales hit hardest to help them become sustainable and consequently contribute to a healthier and more productive nation in a minute but sufficient capacity.

Millennium Fellowship Project: The Aftercare Initiative
The Aftercare Project aims is targeted at individuals in the community with Noncommunicable diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension and seeks to improve the follow-up management after they have been discharged from hospital as many such patients in my country are not able to access this care. The Aftercare Project seeks to create a database on which patients with various conditions may register their contact details according to their conditions and and which is then used to schedule appointments and regularly contact patients for follow up on their conditions.
This database will seek to register 20 new patients weekly from a local hospital and in the course of 3 months, accumulate a register of upto 250 individuals who can be helped with the follow up and management of their conditions.
