" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow for the Class of 2020 because it has given me a chance to interact with and learn from great minds across the globe. I look forward to meeting and interacting with new people with vast experience in various fields and hopefully borrow a leaf from them. I hope to bring innovative ideas and technical solutions to issues in various fields. Working with and coordinating like-minded people in a team are some of my strengths and I hope to employ them during the program and even afterwards. I see the Millennium Fellowship as a perfect opportunity us to learn together and therefore reach out wider to the society, with a view to providing humanitarian solutions to the community around us.

Millennium Fellowship Project: FGM Rescue Centres
"FGM Rescue Centres" and is an initiative to spread awareness and offer counselling to victims of female genital mutilation - a culture that is still prevalent among some communities in Kenya. The idea is to launch a pilot program in a locality in Ogembo Subcounty, Kisii County, Kenya. As SIGHT JKUAT student members, they intend to procure containers, power them using solar energy (as was the case with the previous project) and use them as stations to offer counselling services to young girls who are victims of FGM, as well as spread awareness to the community against that practice. This project is still in the conception stage.The team are however looking to partner with local companies and NGOs to assist in funding the project.
