" I am very excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I know this is going to be the beginning of me and you in making a simple change in people's lives which won't only change their lives but also make the world a better place to stay. This a great chance to positively impact my people, country, continent and worldwide. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Dare To Begin
The project named 'Dare To Begin' will aim on working with small scale farmers and help them understand how important it is to cooperate with others to increase either their profit or their standard of living which will at the same time require them to increase the quality of their products that must accepted to the market level. The quality increase means that the product will be having all essential nutrients and so this will be fighting against malnutrition and the supply food chain.
By August-December 2020, I will first reach out the government and walk them through on how I think the project should operate so they would help me easily communicate with the community around and check on some of the farmers to share with them the idea and how we could easily work together.
About the Millennium Fellow
Marie Immaculee Sangwa is a student studying in an agricultural institute named Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture. She was always eager about pursuing technology as her career until she reviewed previous research on how at least a child die of hunger every 10 seconds, as agriculture is the only key to solve hunger and grew her interest in this field because she believes to save at least a few lives.
