My project is focused on creating awareness on the many possibilities of helping the climate. Either by recycling, reducing or reusing various waste. With the hopes of building a bridge between individuals interested in living a more eco friendly life and various eco friendly organizations.
About the Millennium Fellow
Nicole Kwengwere is an enthusiastic lady in her fourth year of Kamuzu University of Health Sciences, studying Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery. She was born and raised in Malawi. Nicole grew up in a low resource setting, filled with a love for creativity and a mother that loves the garden. With minimal resources available she began to practice recycling everyday items to satisfy her love for creativity, reserving organic waste for the garden. Such a small difference to the disposal of everyday waste made such a huge difference to her life. The endless possibilities of what the world could become, if so much potential wasn't wasted, filled her mind. Nicole decided then that she would take an extra step to let her community know about the endless possibilities achievable with recycled material and how to get the most out of it.
