Millennium Fellowship Project: Life Grade
We will be able to have self-development groups of at least 1000 women and 1000 men living in informal settlements or from less advantaged backgrounds. The difference in the quality of life of these men and women by December 2020 will be clearly visible. People will have hope in life and will be able to afford a decent meal. The crime rates will also go down since the idleness and desperation will be gone. We will be able to set up at least 20 boreholes in Northern Kenya that will help the residents access water for domestic use and also for farming practices like irrigation and for use in the green houses. We will be able to set up at least 5 greenhouses in the region and administer education on appropriate farming practices.
