Millennium Fellowship Project: Class Intervention Program
The Class Intervention Program (CIP) is a program that aims to add more knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development through a sustainable lifestyle and global citizenship. Traditionally our educational institutions in Southern Nigeria are tailored at producing individuals with theoretical abilities and very little of innovative problem-solving skills for societal impact. Helping students maximize their potentials by applying domain knowledge in providing innovative solutions to societal challenges with undeniable impact and benefits.
This will be achieved through planned technical and practical innovative sessions for students which follows an unconventional approach targeted at improving their practical problem-solving abilities and which consciously challenges their abilities to apply domain knowledge from first principles towards achieving the global development goals.
