Millennium Fellowship Project: Ireme foundation
Ireme foundation, a nonprofit organisation that provides scholarships and training to the students who are moving from primary to secondary education and believes to see the future of those children to be brightened. This coming year, Ireme aims at sending at least 10 students to school and cover all their tuition and school materials and also provide additional training to them in holidays in order to equip them with all the necessities that would help them to become in future job creators instead of job seekers.
The background doesn’t matter once educated that’s why Ireme focuses on providing quality education to the students who can’t easily afford it since they are the future global leaders who need the chance. And as a result, this will reduce the percentages of dropouts and early marriages due to lack of means.
