United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“I’m excited because this will be a great platform for learning, self development and honing the skills necessary for dedicated service. I do what I do because I love what I do; I love to learn and to teach, I love being empowered and empowering others. I believe we rise by lifting others and that’s just what I do.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: SCORA
The Standing Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV & AIDS (SCORA) is a gathering of passionate individuals who are committed to promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights and are arduous about creating positive changes in their local communities. SCORA was formed in 1992. It is one out of nine standing committees in NIMSA (Nigerian Medical Students Association) with a mission to provide our members with the tools necessary for advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights within their respective communities in a culturally respected fashion. Our focus areas are: comprehensive sexuality education, maternal health and access to safe abortion, sexuality and gender identity, gender-based Violence, and HIV and other STIs.
During the semester we plan to organize/participate in outreaches, online and offline awareness programmes to members of the campus and community. Based on the trending health issues and the SCORA yearly calendar/schedule, we cover about 9 topics per year and 5 have been addressed; which leaves about 4 events left reaching at least 200 people each in 3-4 centres on our University campus.
