" It is exciting to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because this would grant me the opportunity to meet with change makers across the globe, thereby making it easier for us to achieve sustainable development goals in our communities and the world at large. This would be a movement causing transformational turnaround in my community and the world at large. I am excited! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project TANUS
I'm particularly concerned about the issue of hunger and poverty because I grew up in a destitute environment and got to understand practically that hardship and hunger truly exists. At that time, I was a child at the northern region of Nigeria where we had young boys popularly known with the group name "Almajiris" beg for food from house to house around the street. I feel pity for them even as a young boy at age five. I got to realise they couldn't get food to eat because food was not affordable for them.
Project TANUS (Thematic Agricultural Network Unifying Sustainability) is aimed at addressing the gap between cluster groups in food production(farmers, investors and processors) in Local Government Areas of Nigeria. It would provide training and funding surpport to small and medium scale farmers as well as unify the cluster groups in food production together for sufficient food availability. The project would impact hundred of farmers directly and thousands of Individuals indirectly through affordable food price. The project would go by the campaign A&M Agro-Intervention initiative which I founded.
