" It is an honour for me to be a member of the Millennium Fellowship as it presents me with an avenue to network with great like-minded human resources in the economy of social progress. This fellowship would refine me enough to positively participate in many change processes the world requires. As one committed to tackling social inequality, it is my resolve to contribute hugely in bridging the gap in social classes prevalent in society. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: KANIA NKUNIM
In the community, many understand parts of general issues related to quality of life: health, gender equality, climate action, among others. KANIA NKUNIM seeks to explain these areas to the masses. The informal sector value chain is key as they highly feature in these categories. The project success would include the ability of farmers to plant seeds of clarity, and vendors to serve clear understanding of issues to their communities. Through visitation of these households, and place of works, the team would address these issues to the basic level. Subsequently, a monthly and yearly return visit would be paid to such areas where questions would be posed to them and rewards given based on answers. Awards would be issued to people who show impressive progression in promulgating what they learn to help brighten the lights of others. Institutions such as schools fall within this scope.It advances Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) 3 and 17.Ultimately, Samel hopes to raise SDGs ambassadors from this.
