Also to create and increase awareness on the dangers of Teenage pregnancy, unsafe abortion, Sexually transmitted diseases, Female Genital Mutilation, Child/forced marriage, and others.
By the end of 2020, the Millennium Fellows would have hosted about 20 events reaching out to about 2000 persons aged 15-49 years of the Women of Reproductive Age Group across departments of the 12 faculties in Niger Delta University.
