" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellowship member because it will give me an opportunity to interact and work with many people. This will help me to improve my social skills which has been my greatest weakness. I am looking foward to gain skills that are necessary to benefit others such as the sense of empathy. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Book Drive
The book drive project is a project that intends to support the UN goal of quality education.
In Kenya there are many children who have access to education. It is the goal of every parent to see his/her child through education. However due to poverty some parents are not able to educate there children.
In the book drive project, the Fellows want to raise funds that will enable them to buy various books that will enable children to study at home. They also want to collect textbooks from various people who are not using and give to the children in need of them. This will enable various children to study at home especially during this COVID19 pandemic. There are many students in the country who have not gained access to education because they do not have books that will guide them in their studies.
The book Drive hopes to reach at least 500 students in the country between September and December.
