Millennium Fellowship Project: Discovery of identity
Discovery of identity is in line with the sustainable development goal 10,which is reduced inequalities. I volunteered with the orphanage home every weekend and taught the children academic work, moral values, serving as a mentor for the children. The project aims at ensuring 10-15 teenagers between August 2019-December 2020 understand what true identity is, and does not depend on your background but understanding who you really are and that is all summed in your identity.
