    Hello Uledi!

    Your idea, as you know is very massive and encouraging. You have been a good source of inspiration and motivation on this platform, always ready to encourage, contribute, support and motivate. Congratulations on your ‘Zero Hunger is Possible’ idea, as it sets to to combat hunger and poverty in the society.

    Best of Luck!

    • Thank you very much Anita you’re also one of those who made me to move this far.. Let’s keep in touch until we convert this challenge into opportunity.
      Best of luck!

      • 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.
