Millennium Fellowship Project: Throw it Back (Agenda 2030 through sport)
My project is called Agenda 2030 through sport .
It is is an ongoing project which aims at using sports as a tool for social and economic transformation among the youth.This is through sensitizing the youth on how they can use sport to make every aspect of their lives better.
The project also aims to give back to the community for example we visited Ntinda School for the deaf where scholastic materials such as books ,pens, chalk and dusters were donated.In addition some games and balls for the different sports were donated too.
In Gayaza High School ,we offered mentor ship to the girls and answered their questions about how to balance education and Co Curricular activities
