" I am very interested to be a Millennium Fellow because I hope that this great opportunity will enhance my common perception and knowledge in some aspects since I will be able to interact with young leaders around the world. More on, it will help me to know more about the real-world issues/challenges and how to address them effectively hence solving the problem faced by people worldwide. I am pretty sure that the project that I will be working on will help the world fight hunger for good especially in rural areas hence making lives better. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Chris Poultry Inn
Chris Poultry Inn is a project that relies on agriculture, farmers, and agribusinesses. Therefore, I chose a project that I named Chris Poultry Inn(CPI) which is a poultry-based project composed of three main cores or branches; Egg production, Meat production, and training to local farmers. For now, I will start with training farmers(crop and poultry production) since it does not require a large capital. Which will be to train from small scale farmers to upper-scales, on the efficient production of high productivity products, how to conserve agriculture (soil, water, and land) and poultry hence supporting them to study the market which will lead to gaining profit and changing of lives. By August through December, I hope the farmers I will be working with will have acquired professional skills in their production. hence then supporting in the elimination of hunger in the given areas and more on as we move from one level to another
