" Being a Millennium Fellow is a dream come true! Over the years, I've learned that try as you may, you cannot change the world on your own. It will be great to meet other people who have similar goals with innovative ideas on how to achieve these goals. I would love to learn new things, and teach the things I can.
The future belongs to all of us, it's time we started playing a more active role in ensuring there is a future. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Fund My Education Initiative
Fund My Education Initiative aims to provide bail-out scholarships to 50 students per year in private and public universities that are on the verge of getting kicked out of school due to non-payment of fees.
We also aim to provide financial assistance to at least 20 final year secondary school students who cannot afford their school-leaving examinations that will help them further their education if they wish to do so.
