" I am so excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I strongly feel like this is a great opportunity to work with like minded change makers in this diverse space. The different experiences will enable us as a community to explore and come up with very idealistic, meaningful and creative ideas and solutions to problems being faced within our communities. Being a fellow will also equip me with more skills and a better understanding of working with communities. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: My Study Buddy
With the current state of Education in the country,free primary education is offered in public schools. However the quality of education is very wanting due to the teacher student ratio and also inadequate learning materials. Keeping in mind also the different learning abilities capabilities and styles; the Fellow therefore want to provide the children with a platform where they can be each others keeper and do peer education which will increase the grasping of concepts taught in class.
