" Seeing the application for the Millennium Fellowship, I didn't have to think twice before deciding to hit the application link because it occurred to me that passion was not enough to create the change I want and that if I must make a significant impact, good training and guidance is a very important necessity. I believe the Millennium Fellowship will give me the tools to transform passion to action and make an indelible mark in the sands of time. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SaneMan Initiative
SaneMan Initiative. Since most of gender inequality issues are being fed and propagated by men, we want young men to be active and equal partners in the fight against gender inequality and also be active change makers in matters of Sexual and reproductive health. We aim to reach at least 300 young male students who not only accept but are great advocates in these areas.
