" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because of the great opportunities it present. It enables you work with diverse people with diverse ideas on how to solve a problem. I believe education is the back bone of every country and as such students should have a serene environment for their education. And in turn enable them realize their dreams. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Breaking Barriers to Improve Education
The project is about providing teaching and learning materials such as desks and maker boards, that are needed to improve the educational system.
The project has started in one school where they have already provided the school with 10 desks. They hope to provide them with about 100 more desks and marker boards that will enhance teaching and learning in the school.
