" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellowship because I finally have the opportunity to actualise my dream of seeing an educated society. The number of children without access to quality education in the world is alarming. An uneducated society is a degenerating one. For the sake of the future of our society, I am committed to making a change against societal degradation by creating accessible quality education and together with like minded Fellows of great dreams, no doubt. The opportunity to work as a team together with aspiring leaders of tomorrow in realising our individual dreams is one I treasure the most in the Millennium Fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Build Back Health and Education
The project objective is designed to provide early materials needed for the reopening of schools to both schools and students in the communities and also to engage our members in educational services. Specifically, the project will address lack of access to schools by assisting the public schools and students with covid19 prevention equipments and reading materials such as hand sanitizers, facemasks, books and pens, pads for girls. The educational services part will include volunteer community teaching to refresh children brains in preparation for resumption, volunteer teaching for already resumed students in their various schools, educational community outreach which will focus on sensitization on the need for education and call to parents to enroll their out of school children in schools, organizing Webinars to address the Nigerian already decayed educational system and need for revitalization. This project is expected to have a direct Impact on the lives of forty two thousands (42000) people and indirect impact upon the lives of 1, 000, 000 people.
