" I'm excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because I believe it's a great opportunity to learn from and partner with Fellow young people from all over the world who are passionate about making the world a better place. Working on my project is also a great opportunity to make impact in my community and advance at least one of the sustainable development goals and leave the world a better place! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Our Soup kitchen
Our Soup kitchen' is a soup kitchen and originates from my vision to help in furthering the sustainable development goals, specifically the second one which is zero hunger. A soup kitchen provides food for the homeless and those who can't afford it and my project will be just that. I used ‚Äòour' to provide a sense of belonging for anyone who'd like to be part of the project which is inclusive of sponsors, members of the community, my peers, any and everyone who'd like to be a part of it.
We plan to host the kitchen at least twice a week, providing for about 50people at each time which makes about 100 a week, 400 a month and hopefully more than 2000 by December 2020. The impact is simply measured by how many people we're able to feed at each time and the numbers will be collated at the end of each event which is compiled at the end of the project.
