" I am super excited to be a Millennium Fellow because the Millennium Fellowship would give me the perfect platform to meet and interact with great minds who are also passionate about creating social impact and making their society a better place. It will also have the opportunity to learn more on how to achieve the sustainable development goals of which I'm in particular passionate about the SDG 3 which is focused on Good health and wellbeing. I would be privileged to learn how I can make my dreams in line with this a reality. The Millennium Fellowship would also give the opportunity to build quality leadership skills "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The GWC Project
The GWC project is focused on good health, well being and cleanliness. It is line with SDG 3 and UNAI objective 9 of sustainability.
Through this project I intend to carry out general sanitation in some communities in my locality as statistics has it that members of a clean hygienic environment are less prone to certain ailments and disease. I would also enlighten the community members on the need for proper environmental sanitation and good personal hygiene. There would be free basic medical checkup for the community members and enrollment of some indigent young children into school. Online videos and coaching would also be made to sensitize the general public on the need of keeping their environment clean maintaining hygiene, and added benefits of education because illiteracy is also a major factor that causes people neglect sanitation and hygiene. I intend to have the project sponsored by some organizations and businesses and in return publicize their goods and services. It is my aim that by the end of December 2020 the GWC project would have impacted a lot of lives and created a more sustainable environment which is clean and in which it's members enjoy a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.
