ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
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.
“Our team vision primarily motivates me and it goes thus: I believe in the greatness of Nigeria and God has inscribed it in my heart from the book of Hosea, I believe in the betterment of things in our country. We, as students would love to contribute to that future from the seemingly little place we are still in (Tertiary Institution). I believe that majority of the leaders & those in public organizations desire healing for our nation and their organizations and we would love to support them from the depth of realization that we are the people to benefit.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Luth of Our Dreams
The Luth of Our Dreams is a community project focused on building a Zero Waste community. Our project has a focus on reducing waste generated and instigating the reusing and recycling culture. We made the community aware of the prevailing waste problem, taught (with our awareness campaigns) on the 3Rs. The project has provisions for taking actions through participation in the recyclables collection and recycling generally.
In addition, between this August and November 2020 we will host a movie screening reaching about 80 people, we would have printed 300 stickers on 150 waste bins in the premises.
We will establish our Recyclables Collection center and provide at least 50 waste bins of different sizes in the premises, measuring the amount of waste collected per month. We will provide 500 teaching materials in the form of fliers, posters, banners, etc.
