" From a very young age I aspired to help people when I grow up through the work that I will do. Later in my life, I got to understand that it is really important to take responsibility and build a community with individuals who are alike me, who want to do something for the people, for the society and create a positive impact which will inspire all generations to be a little bit kind and make this world a better place for everyone. And I believe by becoming a Millennium Fellow, I can communicate with many creative and talented people from whom I can adapt different skills which will add value to my life and make me a capable person for building a greater community in future.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Krishop
KriShop is the first-ever multi-sided online platform that offers direct access to fresh crops that are grown in your city & the power of traceability in your hand. KriShop is the market maker with which you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown in your own city or might be harvested right above your head just a couple of minutes before you buy them. KriShop is connecting urban gardeners to enable them to buy, share and grow fresh vegetables and fruits in cities.
KriShop empowers the urban gardeners based on their necessities so that they achieve higher yields and sell their extra harvested outcomes through KriShop's cloud-based application. Krishop also provides agro-technologies like Hydroponics, Aeroponics, and Aquaponics along with IoT-enabled smart sensors to remind you when and how much to water your plant.
Since KriShop's core concentration is to establish a community-based food supply ecosystem, it uses its data-driven online platform to find the perfect match for the buyer and seller. Moreover, with its online resources, KriShop is pioneering urban agro-entrepreneurs. That's how KriShop cuts transportation miles and helps reduce greenhouse emissions by transforming the concrete city jungles into a green ecosystem.
