" I am exicted to be part of the Millennium Fellowship. Aside from the career enhancing opportunities this fellowship gives students to socially impact their communities, I am glad that I would work hand in hand with intelligent minds to combat the problem of access to quality education due to a learning disability. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Get Included
Get included is a project targeted at the additional challenges students in the class room due to learning disabilities such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Dysphasia amongst other learning disabilities. This project is directed at getting these students included and getting access to quality education just like other students by addressing the issue of being unable to read or write due to these disabilities. Due to the emergence of Covid-19 in Nigeria and globally. We plan to make use of the internet in reaching out to these students. Thereby increasing awareness on the existence of these disabilities through the internet and on social media as well host free online counseling platforms for students to get the help they need virtually. This would involve answering their questions and providing them with required answers and directions.
