" I am so excited to be part of Millennium Fellowship because it is a great opportunity to network with like minded people from Africa and the world at large. With community empowerment, participation and capacity building I believe we can release individuals and communities from extreme poverty that is why am working so hard to better the lives of vulnerable communities. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Inua Community Help Organization.
Having come from a poor background and through various observations from poor communities in her country, Rebecah noticed how many of the community members have lived in poverty for so long despite the various relief offered to them. Thus, Inua Community Help Organization will work with communities living in extreme poverty to establish sustainable projects that use easily available resources in their region and offering a marketing platform for their products. In addition, they offer community capacity building, community empowerment and mentorship to young people from vulnerable communities. Therefore, they enhance the release of individuals and communities from poverty rather than offering relief. Within August and December, Rebecah aims at registering her organization, paying for the website, try to get a cofounder and team member for the organization, then later visit some communities for research and mentorship.
