Millennium Fellowship Project: UNEC Against Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is undeniably one of the leading causes of illness and death in Nigeria. Each year, nearly 1.5 million Nigerians become ill and thousands of people die as a result of food poisoning.
The goal of my project is to raise awareness about food safety practices and educate students at the University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC) about the risks of food poisoning, as well as to promote healthy and safe eating habits on campus.
As part of my project, I reached out to some students in their hostels and connected with them on social media where I share online resources and flyers daily. I also reached out to an expert in food quality and safety to share his insights and experiences with the students on food poisoning webinar.
In addition, I created a pre-webinar questionnaire survey that was disseminated over social media to assess students' degree of knowledge and experience with food poisoning. After the webinar, I designed a post-webinar questionnaire survey that helped me compare and analyze my impact on the students.
In summary, this project was designed to educate the students of the University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC) on the risks of food poisoning and provide them with information on how to prevent it. The project consisted of a series of educational write-ups and flyers and was implemented via webinar by a highly experienced expert in the food quality
and safety field. The results of the project were measured through surveys, and the findings showed that the project had a significant impact on increasing knowledge and awareness of food poisoning and safe food practices among participants. Overall, the project was successful in reaching its goals and made a valuable contribution to improving food safety in the community.
