" Millennium Fellowship is a great platform that allows global young leaders to share ideas and best practices. I believe that being a Fellow will provide me with the right tools, networks, and inspiration to help expand the impact of my work in my community and the district at large. Community networking opportunities and diversity promote knowledge transfer, which aids in the upliftment of communities and the transformation of lives. It is an avenue for creative ways of solving current and pressing issues.
Hearing from other young people with similar goals is encouraging; networking with talented leaders is just as inspiring. Learning from people who have already accomplished so much will give me insight into how to expand my impact and avoid potential challenges. As a change maker, sharing my experience will also be a source of motivation for other young leaders. As a gathering of bright minds already impacting their communities, I believe we can create a better world for humanity by leveraging our different experiences. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: AgricBoost

I was born and raised in the Kpantarigo neighborhood. My father has a sufficient amount of farmland. I recall seeing vast quantities of packaged maize, rice, millet, and other grains when I was a child between the ages of 10 and 16. Then, for a long time, I haven't seen that. It occurs to me to investigate why this is the case. I began by inquiring of my grandfather, who stated that the land's infertile character was the cause for him. . Inquire of the farmers, particularly those aiming to produce in great commercial amounts, and they will tell you the same narrative as my grandfather. So I presented them with my project plan and how I want to carry it out, which includes increasing agricultural output in the neighborhood by lending fertilizer to them and having them pay in monthly installments. They are enthusiastic about the concept. Farming is the main source of income in the Kpantarigo village, thus residents generally cultivate food crops including maize, rice, millet, and other grains for consumption and sale if there is a good harvest. My grandfather tells me that farming inside the community used to be quite successful because the ground was incredibly fertile and could support any crop, but that nowadays, without fertilizer, you get no yield at all. It makes gardening difficult, especially for the average community member who has the financial means to purchase fertilizer. . This reduces agricultural productivity in the neighborhood, resulting in increased poverty, which has a direct impact on the educational welfare of the wards since they are unable to feed their children, let alone send them to school. In light of my community's tragic tragedy, I've been considering how I might best intervene to help my people out of their predicament. After learning about the Ford Foundation, I decided to start the AgricBoost project to help the community's agricultural. I buy fertilizer in large quantities and loan it to farmers, who will pay for it in monthly installments.
