        Your own success may not mean anything if those who raised you are suffering and are expecting their children to suffer the same, You must do something to help your community for today and in future. Success comes when people around you wishes that you were there all the time (from my inner thinking).
        Congratulations for the good and far vision you have.

    Hi Uledi,
    Your idea is very noble as it is aimed at to eradicate one of the most biggest problem that we face on this planet: Hunger. Though it aims at reducing hunger and poverty at your local level, I am sure that you will be able to extend it to a global level which will help even people at global level.

    Thanks and all the best,
    Team GreenSpace
