" The thought of giving back to the community, and at large using my success to be the success of many has pushed me hard to join this platform and build myself with enough knowledge and abilities to work in a team and also to improve my leadership capacity to be a person of impact in my community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: ECO-WHEEL
ECO-WHEEL works on gathering and reusing household waste as reasonable substrates to produce Maggots and manure. Maggots are affordable, green, and sustainable high protein feed/ supplement for livestock like pigs, poultry, birds, and fish. We started with a demonstration for practical and teaching purposes at our campus and then proceeded to surrounding communities. We use videos and small pamphlets to reach and educate people in and out of the university. The objective of the project is to provide a cheap alternative supplementary feed(maggots) for farmers, to promote a farming practice that is economically viable, socially just, and environmentally friendly, and to reduce the energy loss within the food web and also promote the spirit of recycling.
