" It is the things that seem little that matter. I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship becaue in the small ways that I can, I am able to contribute to making the society better. I love that I get to work with young minds who are passionate about making the world a better place. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: #Stationeryforpupil
The project aims to provide stationery to pupils in primary schools in the slum areas in Nairobi. Following the closure of schools due to Covid-19, collection of the money to do so will be done online through a pay bill number. The intention is to let the people aware of the project by making posters and posting it in my social media pages and have my peers do the same. Additionally, talking to people personally and making them aware of it.
