" I am very happy to be able to be part of the Millennium Fellowship Program because it is a perfect opportunity to help me boost my habilities and apply them where it is needed, as well as learning from others in the process. I believe that education is one of the most important tools in our life box, this is why I am so passionate about education and getting involved with the community. I am a believer that when people get involved in educating and learning from others people will remember it for a lifetime. That's the kind of impact I desire. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Educación sin barreras (Education Across Barriers)
Education Across Barriers aims to promote and facilitate access to education, which is SDG4, with people of middle school and high school. All the above with a family framework. As the team approaches vulnerable communities, they plan to work first with young people of middle school and give them motivational, leadership, finance, etc, workshops to empower them and let them know that they are capable to keep studying. In addition to this, the team wants to invite their parents if they haven't finish high school and also connect them with an accessible and flexible institution that can help them to finish the basic education according to Mexico's law and the time they have to do it. Educación sin barreras (Education Across Barriers) desires to create a sense of families growing together and to strengthen the compromise they have within them and as a result with us.
