Millennium Fellowship Project: Jirani Initiative
Jirani Initiative is meant to progress SDG 4, Quality Education for all, targeting community libraries in informal settlements. We chose Wajukuu Library in Mukuru Kwa Njenga as a beneficiary of text books and stationery. Our target was to provide at least 200 primary school and secondary school text books putting into consideration they new curriculum. We carried out fundraising activities such as speed dating and movie night within the University to create awareness on sustainable development goals and the millennium fellowship with an aim to encourage our fellow university students to be more proactive in community work.
