“Being a Millennium Fellow is another step towards self-discovery and self-development. Being a Millennium Fellow means I get to share with others the work I do and the joy it brings me. I am excited to be given the opportunity to interact with other intelligent minds on the how to make the greatest positive impact on the greatest number of people. It is my goal to give off the best of my abilities, resources, and skills to make the lives of others better.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Tech for the Blind module is aimed at equipping the blind with IT skills to empower them to partake fully in this technological era. Equipping the blind with skills to use computers will enable them to connect with their friends, families and the world through the use of social media and empower them to pursue higher education without any hindrance. The module hopes to reach out to more visually impaired people in Ghana, (specifically Accra), especially those who have been neglected by family and society.

She is excited about being a better version of herself by touching the lives of others positively. Alberta loves to challenge herself intellectually and push herself beyond limits she initially thought were impossible. She believes that being a millennium fellow is a wonderful experience in itself and she cannot wait to begin this journey of learning more about herself and the world around her.
