Millennium Fellowship Project: God's Rubies
God's Rubies is a non-profit project aimed at impacting the lives of young Kenyan girls from different communities.It is meant to empower young girls through basic education, advice, and teaching of skills in order to encourage them to be the best they can be and exemplify their true worth just like God sees them.
Eventually, God's Rubies will be a network of girls supporting each other in the country and being unified for the greater good.
The goal so far is to impact as many girls as possible but with a more personal approach (rather than giving a general talk, talking to a small group of girls at a time ) So approximately two schools, the target being high schools due to the increased number of drop-outs during that phase
