Millennium Fellowship Project

The Books Not Bombs project aids after school tutoring of refugee students at a local Atlanta high school. The project’s team plans to develop interactive workshops intended to make STEM disciplines more accessible to all students, help them make informed decisions about their future and make them more competitive when seeking acceptance to higher education. Their goals are to complete 3 workshops, partner with 3 student orgs and have 25 unique students attend the workshops. They hope to advance SDG's principle of Quality Education and UNAI’s principle of Education for All through our efforts.
