Babcock University | Ikenne, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 3
" I'm very excited and honoured to be a Millenium Fellow this year because it gives me the opportunity to learn how to be a better leader. It also gives me the opportunity to impact my community positively. I believe in making life easier for people because life is already hard as it is and that is why I chose my work. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project PAD
Project PAD is a small scale project born out of an observation that there was no provision for sanitary pads in the public bathrooms within my school's campus. The project provides pads in these bathrooms free of charge thereby improving school attendance and learning as you do not have to be worried when your period comes unexpectedly. Our goals are measured by feedback from people.
