" I am excited to be part of this Fellowship because it serves as an avenue where I will meet and work with other young intellectuals with the same vision as me and to gather ideas to develop on my current projects. I believe in the philosophy that two good heads are better than one, as such I like platforms that open up channels for people who want to see a positive change happen to their world work together since it's the only way the world can be made better.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Rice thresher project
This project is based on the development of a simple machine that is used to trash rice separating the grains from the trash, this machine is designed on working without the use of fuel or electricity but operates in the form of a bicycle in which the famer paddles and the energy from the paddler is used to do the work. This machine is made by local welders and it's target group of people is the rice farmers in deprived areas who can't afford a combined harvester. The project is still under review on how to change the manual way into the use of the solar energy since there is abundant of sunlight in the targeted communities. The project goal is to increase the farm supply of farmers in the target communities by December 2020 who have purchase the product and to expand the supply to other communities by 2021.
