Millennium Fellowship Project: Orphans kNOw More
Orphans kNOw More (OkM) is a project that focuses on orphanages that lack the facilities and equipment for the providence of quality education. This project helps renovate rooms into libraries by providing books, stationary and furniture, which they can't afford due to lack of funds. I intend to raise awareness and provide the Orphanages, that are not paid heed to, with the necessities and if possible luxuries too in order to meliorate the education system for them. With this platform and support I am aiming to broaden the work by the employment of teachers, to educate kids academically and also focus on their co-curricular activities with the help of better education supplies and equipment in other orphanages too. Education breaks the cycle of poverty and hopelessness and it enables the children to look forward to a bright future with good careers. It inspires, enables and impacts entire communities.
