Millennium Fellowship Project: Cheese for Fees
I have observed that there are only a few selections of cheese on our market yet people all around the world are eating many more types of cheese. I want to exploit cheese production and introduce various types of cheese to our cheese industry and I want to do this alongside lifting local farmers rearing cattle on small scales aiming at the least earning farmers. In about 4 months' time, my goal is that every farmer I'll be working with will be able to pay for the current or upcoming school term.
