University of Ilorin | Ilorin, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 2 & UNAI 1
" I am passionate about achieving Universal health coverage and SDG 17(Sustainable development through global partnerships). Looking into my own country's health system and socioeconomic standing, I understand that a lot of work needs to be done to get adequate health services and removing majority of the populace from the sinking depth of poverty. I believe that as a Fellow, I'll be amongst highly intriguing intellectuals with whom adequate collaboration and exchange of ideas would incite the exposure needed for all our goals to be achieved. Also, with the arrayed amounts of NGOs in existence, I believe that sustainable development through global partnerships could be monumental steps in getting the world to be the better place we wish for ourselves and future generations to exist in.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Operation Feed an African Child
Operation Feed an African Child (OFAC) is a proposed project, by the Federation of African Medical Students Association ‚ Standing Committee On Population Activities (FAMSA-SCOPA). I'm a medical student officer representing my school in SCOPA. The project is aimed at reducing the number of children affected by food insecurity in African communities. It is a strategy applied to achieve zero hunger by 2030, in accordance to SDG 2. Our goals are:
1. To provide food to at least 100000 children in IDP camps or orphanage homes
2. To increase awareness of the severity of food insecurity faced by African parents in feeding their children through:
3. Reaching out to the community farmers, to enhance more food production and selling at a low price to the citizens.
4. Reaching out to the food technologists/nutritionists to promote food fortification and diversification.
5. Increase awareness via social media, radio stations, television stations, etc.
