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 am very excited because this is a platform where I can share my knowledge and skills with others, and bring resources together to help each other grow in our projects. I do the work I do because of empathy. For as long as I can remember, I have had a sweet spot for animals. I believe they deserve a warm place to call home just as much as we do!”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Hope for Strays
Hope for Strays rescues stray kittens, cats and puppies and nurses them back to health, then looks for suitable and loving homes for them. Furthermore, it fights animal cruelty and puppy mills through encouragement to adopt from shelters. During this period, Hope for Strays aims take in at least 10 stray animals and have them settled in loving homes and to have raised at least KSh50,000 to donate to an animal shelter.
