Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture | Kigali, Rwanda | Advancing SDG 1 & UNAI 1
" Being a Millennium Fellow is something thing great that every one with a right dream can celebrate. I am super excited to be part of Millennium Fellowship because I will connect with other entrepreneurs from all around the world which will help to build my confidence of eradicating poverty in my country and Africa at large. I am not contented by the life farmers in Rwanda even other Sub -Saharan African countries. I believe that my full commitment in agriculture will eradicate poverty and hunger as well in most African societies. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: MOBI Farm
"Mobi farm " is an easy and reliable platform that provides essential information to farmers and connects community to the open market. Mobi farm will help farmers to increase their production and the distribution channels will use our online platform to get the market trends of agricultural products. In the first four months I will be working with one district (Musanze) which has about 400 to 500 farmers and if 300 farmers are able to use the platform efficiently, my next milestone will be working with 4 districts in each province . I will choose the district that is mostly relying on agriculture.
