Millennium Fellowship Project: SDG 4 Her
SDG 4 Her is aimed at escalating SDG education among girls and women in Africa through advocacy, SDG education and mentorship. I chose this project because young people are the greatest resources we have that will make the achievement of sustainable development by 2030 a reality. Girls and women, on the other hand, are part of the minority and underrepresented groups, therefore, SDG 4 Her is advocating for equal inclusion in governance and all areas related to sustainable development because it is a necessity to include these underrepresented groups in policymaking and Sustainable development
