Millennium Fellowship Project: Project PAD

Project PAD is a small scale initiative that provides sanitary pads and toilet paper to all public bathrooms within my University campus free of charge. It was born out of an observation that many female students miss lectures due to "period emergencies" and our goal is to make sure that females can participate actively in lectures regardless of the "period emergency".

We hope to fit at least one public bathroom in each lecture building within the campus starting from the medical school before the year runs out and to also set up a fundraiser to keep the system running.

Ehizobhen Addeh is a 5th year student currently studying Medicine and Surgery at Babcock University, Nigeria. She is passionate about gender equality and she believes the world would be a better place if men and women are given equal opportunities.

“Being a Millennium Fellow is a dream come true! Over the years, I've learned that try as you may, you cannot change the world on your own. It will be great to meet other people who have similar goals with innovative ideas on how to achieve these goals. I would love to learn new things, and teach the things I can. The future belongs to all of us, it's time we started playing a more active role in ensuring there is a future.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Fund My Education Initiative

Education is power and is one of the greatest tools available for initiating positive change in the human mind. The Fund My Education Initiative was set up in order to avail Nigerian youths of this gateway to power and help eliminate economic poverty as well as poverty of the mind. The focus of the organization is ensuring that young men and women already in higher education, whose education is in danger of discontinuation due to financial difficulty, can continue their education and see it to completion. We hope to raise enough money to assist 50 students in public and private universities, to prevent them for dropping out of school. We also hope to create awareness of the UN's SDGs, and why it is important for everyone to get involved in building a better future.
