" The inability of the good to speak up in a dark world enables perpetrators of evil. These are wise words spoken by Mrs Djokoto, my high school headmistress. Words I have chosen to live by; words which encourage me to take opportunities such as becoming a Millennium fellow in my stride, on my path to greatness.
I deem the Millennium fellowship a window to enlightenment and heightened levels of self awareness that will guide my self actualization and make me better equipped to help my community and be a blessing to all people in the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Reproductive Health for High Schoolers
Reproductive Health for High Schoolers serves to educate high schoolers on sexual health and general reproductive cleanliness and wellbeing.
At the end of this project, I hope to educate at least 100 high schoolers on:
1. The ABCs of sexual health
2. Proper methods of using condoms, sanitary pads and tampons
3. Basic principles of reproductive cleanliness and undergarment care.
4. Healthy interaction between same and opposite sex students.
