Millennium Fellowship Project: Growth and Development of a Child

This project focuses majorly on assessment of the anthropometric measurements of school children (majorly toddlers and preschoolers) in Babcock University Staff School and it is essentially designed to ensure that each child is accessed for proper growth and development in order to make informed decisions required to improve each child’s well-being. It involves measurement of the height and weight of the school children. These measurements are plotted against the World Health Organization growth chart.

The overall goal is to create a sustainable method of anthropometric assessment and on the long run determine the nutritional status of the children, intervene and proffer solutions where necessary. The project will require partnership with a non- governmental association, The DeNovo Charity Foundation to obtain the funds that would be required for the accomplishment of this project.

The project aims to accomplish adequate anthropometric assessment of at least 70% of toddlers and preschoolers of Babcock University Staff School and aims to positively impact 50 - 90 individuals

About the Millennium Fellow

Naomi Ejoor is currently a medical student of Babcock University that is passionate about providing the basic amenities that are required for a child. She is an executive in the DeNovo Charity Foundation(a non-profit organisation) that reaches out to children without the access to basic amenities. Naomi desires for children to have a wonderful childhood without having to wonder where or when their next meal will come, how they will get clothes to wear or even how they will pay their school fees. Naomi hopes that through team work, hard work and empathy we can all make a great impact in our community and even play a role in the achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
