Millennium Fellowship Project: Female Dreamers Initiative

Female Dreamers Initiative is an initiative that aims to empower young girls and women by teaching them poultry skills so they can be self-sufficient and independent. Many times, young girls and women are not educated due to traditional beliefs {women are to be wives} and having these skills that substitute for that usually give them hope. Therefore, as Female Dreamers members, we are unlocking young girls and women's potential so they can fully pursue their dreams.

About the Millennium Fellow
