" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because the United Nations alongside MCN are bodies that have been at the forefront of promoting commendable social impact initiatives around the world – a cause of action which is just as much the preoccupation of responsible journalism. I am therefore using this medium to promote SDGs literacy as well as inspire less-privileged students from a community I am a product of. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Read, Set, Go SDGs!
Ready, Set, Go SDGs! sought to engage students of public senior secondary schools in Lagos State. Upon full academic resumption in late September, the project commenced activities to engage selected public schools in Lagos State. The aim of the project is to bridge the knowledge and exposure gap of the SDG among senior students of public and private schools in the state. The project aims to introuduce them to the SDG in order to allow them know more about the world they live in and how they can contribute to it.
