" I am excited to have this opportunity to be part of the fellowship program. I'm looking forward to working with my fellow youths in addressing various issues that affect our societies as a whole. I will be happy to interact with people from different parts of the world and get to share different ideas. I will be committed to do any task placed at hand on order to achieve the best for betterment of our communities. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Making home made handwashing tippy taps for public primary schools.
The project aim at using simple reusable materials such as jerricans in order to make simple hand washing tippy taps. These taps are cheap and easy to use and can be stationed at various parts in a school environment so that each and every pupil gets to wash their hands on a regular basis.
This is due to the fact that not every school is able to afford hand washing taps. These facilities will serve a good purpose for this.
