" I feel honoured to be a member of the Millennium Fellowship, a select group dedicated to creating positive change. I have a passion for improving the lives of vulnerable demographics in society, recognizing their need for equal treatment and special attention. I lead a team providing mentorship to a rescue home in Kenya, allowing unsupported teenage pregnant girls to regain the opportunity to chase their dreams. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Wings of Hope Mentorship
The Wings of Hope Mentorship program works alongside Wings of Hope Rescue Home in Nairobi, a charitable institution dedicated to rescuing pregnant teenage girls aged 12-17 who have been victims of rape and sexual abuse. The program generates mentorship manuals and strategies to complement the home's existing support and enhance the overall well-being of the girls. The program has already seen success, with one girl being awarded a scholarship to pursue International Relations at Strathmore University, a leading learning institution in East Africa.
