" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is an a opportunity to meet new people who have the same passion as mine.
I will be able to interact with other fellows and get new ideas on how to help my community, more efficient ways to help and find out how the different people from other countries do their work. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: outreach Uganda
The project aims at poverty eradication through education and spreading literacy by installing a learning culture into children in primary school. Our focus is on children in community centers who do not have sufficient resources to make the capacity to ascertain a good education. We read to them, teach them how to read, paint with them, play games tell stories and anything else that they are interested in.
