" I'm very thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow as this is a honourable stage and privilege, I'm glad to have been selected as a Millennium Fellow because I get to work with like-minded people as me who have similar goals, the essence of agriculture in daily lives cannot be overemphasised, I believe with education and constant integration and efficiency on the agricultural sector moving on from here it can only get better. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Revolutionary Agriculture.
The project (REVOLUTIONARY AGRICULTURE) is centred around "Advocacy". As discovered community rural farmers are not aware of the sustainable development goal Thus, this project focuses on rejuvenating awareness among rural farmers, markets, and consumers on how to reduce hunger in our community by educating indigenous farmers on the best sustainable practices to produce quality crops, They as well consider writing articles for publication on their pending website to advocate our movements of collectivism to "end hunger" on and off-campus communities.
The team will raise $300 to support rural farmers in the fight to end hunger on & off campus"
They will advocate a movement titled (THE MOVEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL COLLECTIVISM) - a movement which will promote rural farmers collective effort to fight hunger in the community through access to finance, resources such as land and equipment/technologies to increase productivity
