" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I have the passion to help young girls in deprived areas to attain a certain level of education and to empower them to become successful persons in the society and I believe this will serve as a platform for us to achieve our objectives. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project ESE (Empowering The Society Through Education)
Project ESE (Empowering The Society Through Education) is a group initiative which seeks to empower the society especially the youths through keen education on very key issues to build in them much capacity which we believe will help trigger development. Project ESE among many other things seeks to build youth's potentials greatly by organising capacity building seminars for students both in the Junior High and Senior High schools. There will be much education on health related issues using the health triangle as a major tool. Notwithstanding, more emphasis will be laid on Reproductive Health of females. Also, proper sanitation campaigns will be initiated by us in order to educate the society, as hygienic environments are essential for development. Skills training will not be an exception. Students and communities as much as we can reach, will be taught some basic skills of life to help them make a living.
