" I am so glad to be part of Millennium Fellowship because I believe that it will be the cornerstone to my dreams of changing people's lives through zero hunger starting from Africa and across the world. Furthermore, I am very interested to work with other brilliant young generation where i hope that together we will achieve great things. And I am looking forward to getting more project and leadership skills. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Modern Home Farm
As the population grows, the land doesn't. Instead, people will have less land to grow crops hence rise in food prices, increased malnutrition, poverty, and finally hunger. People in towns are facing a challenge of high prices of food which increases malnutrition. This is mainly because farmers are not producing enough food, especially in Africa. This business is mainly about increasing food production starting from Africa by facilitating all people to produce fresh crops and livestock at home on a very small piece of land using a "MODERN HOME FARM". This is a clean, simple, and health integrated farm which helps a family or individual to keep to about 50 chickens and grow to about 1 tone of vegetables on 6 square meters. This is a game changing business that will help people to feed on fresh food, eggs, and meat and eradicate hunger and malnutrition.
