The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“I am excited to be part of a network of like-minded young people all over the world who are making deliberate efforts to make the world a better place for all. I consider this an opportunity to learn and better prepare myself to serve the world. I believe that, people are suffering in Africa because of a leadership crisis and it is important for me as a young person who is determined to see a new Africa and new world prepare myself for such an important task.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Mentors Network project seeks to inspire, motivate, and support students in rural areas to unleash their potentials. We encourage student attendance, social, and academic growth as well as help students find opportunities through direct and indirect mentoring programs. By recruiting mentors from Ashesi University, they hope to enrich the education experience of the project’s mentees.
