" The thrill of being chosen to be part of the Millennium Fellowship class of 2020 makes me believe that equality for all will be possible, this is because for it to be attained, we need to teach the upcoming generation as a way of ensuring that our future is of people who will not be judged by their different demographics but rather their character and actions. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Equality for All
Ensuring equality among us begins with education, as such, the ALU community is made up of many nationalities. Therefore it is key to take advantage and use them to educate each other about our cultures to promote Africa unity. The project will aid an understanding of the root causes of mistreatment of others, how we can educate each other to promote equality, gender roles in the 21st century and how the traditional roles be upgraded to fit into the present moments.
