Millennium Fellowship Project
The project bringing back Africa's cultural identity in today's fashion provides training to unemployed youths within Kigali city in Rwanda. The main goal of the project is to help youth acquire the skills of using beads in producing accessories. At the end of this project, we hope to bring in at least five participants onboard and raise $500 to purchase materials and tools to begin production.
