What a great time we live in. Wondering why? I am going to feature one of Kenya’s Youth Initiatives by an enterprising gentleman called Francis Otieno Amonde.
His CupOfUji Initiative was founded on 5th January 2011, whose mission is towards Sustainable Development Goal number 2 of Zero Hunger, through a daily cup of Uji ( cup of porridge).
Francis believes that each person has a personal calling that is as unique as a fingerprint, and that theirs is a daily #CupOfUji (Porridge) for children.
As you can see from his initiative track record that he has been serving various primary schools including Fikisha Street Boys Center, in Kawangware slums, Nairobi.
His only appeal is for your 10 shillings donation for sustainability of the Cup Of Uji Initiative, which is quite a fair amount. Literally, anybody can be a donor without filling a pinch.
I saw this initiative and as a budding Agripreneur, i couldn’t help but think, ‘ Is it possible to have farmers onboard for this project by having contract farmers take on the contracts of planting Millet grains, do value addition on it and supply such an Initiative?’ With the 10 shillings donation from well wishers, i believe this is doable.
This calls to put in practise the guidelines laid down by the united nations Sustainable Development Goal number 17, which calls for partnerships for relevant stakeholders with like minds.
For well wishers with hearts of humanity who’d want to reach out to his Cup Of Uji Initiative, find him on firstname.lastname@example.org or +254723921080.

Africa is rising. The age of social entrepreneurship has kicked off. Are you willing to be part of the change or not?
