" I am thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a great experience to learn, gain strength, and showcase to the world the untapped potential that youths have in resolving global challenges. This program creates a platform to connect with global student leaders that are making a change in their communities especially in advancing SDG goals. "
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.
