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.
“Being a Millennium Fellow is a great privilege for me as I see this as an avenue to improve myself and my network as well as an opportunity to meet with prospective change makers in the world today. The millennium fellowship brings together young people around the world who desire to make the world a better place, which is a great motivation for me as this is pivotal in gaining support for the SDGs. I so much desire a world without poor people, where children have all they need to be happy, hence advancing SDG 1- NO POVERTY.”
