" Growing up my father always told me that life is free and fun but its great when you assist other people to achieve their dream. This interaction with my father fueled my desire to make change wherever l find myself. Helping others is very satisfying because it gives me a sense of purpose
I am very happy to be part of the 2019 Millennium Fellowship because it will give me the opportunity to meet and interact with individuals who are working towards making a change. This will also put me in the position to learn new ways to achieve change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Every child is made for more
Every child is made for more is a project that seeks to assist underprivileged children who can not enjoy quality education as a result of lack of motivation or financial constraints. The project seeks to provide underprivileged children with the materials necessary for them to enjoy quality education such as bags, exercise books, pen, pencils and school uniforms. This project seeks to organize weekend tutoring session for the children to educate them on basic computer skills, English and mathematics.
Through this project we helped enrolled a number of children back to school and also provided them with the books need to learn. . This project is aimed at encouraging the children of the Cape Coast Amamoma to pursue education at their own freewill. We are able to measure our achievements by visiting the children in their various to observe how they were performing in school, monitoring the children`s school attending and how well they are able to perform on assignments given to them after every weekend tutoring session. We hope to be able to enroll more children to school in the few months to come.
