" Being a Millennium Fellow is the most remarkable opportunity given to every individual. I am so excited and in high Spirits of the opportunity given. This will not only help me accomplish the set goals I wish to achieve but it will also strengthen my leadership skills for now and the days ahead.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Teach 2 Transform Initiative (T2i)
The art and act of reading, design creation as well as implementing the knowledge is one of the strenuous concerns for African Students. The Teach to Transform initiative (T2i) is geared towards providing practical education to students in both urban and remote schools. This will be done by creating reading clubs and organizing workshops on design creations and innovations. One of the important agendas to achieve is to educate students on how to study effectively and cultivate the habit of reading. Within these upcoming months, the team hopes to host 5 workshops, spread throughout the year; 3 workshops at the Junior level and 2 workshops at the Senior Level. This project targets to impact about 50-100 people by the end of December 2019. We hope to achieve all these targets by engaging in a fundraising program to raise funds to buy books and items for this course.
