Millennium Fellowship Project: Encouraging Education and Self Empowerment
The 'Encouraging Education and Self Empowerment Project' is centered around reducing poverty. If total global education were achieved, it would have a significant impact on the reduction of poverty. This explains why the project seeks to create awareness about how education is the fundamental right of every citizen which enhances progress and gives us a sense of freedom. This project aims to donate basic resources like notebooks, textbooks and other critical items that will contribute to the quality of education of students.
It is impossibe to end poverty by giving people money since poverty isn't always financial, therefore this initiative also seeks to educate youths on the need to set personal goals and develop certain skills to create whatever opportunity they desire.
