Millennium Fellowship Project: Advocacy for Quality Education
"Advocacy for quality education" is a semester long project I shall be leading in the University of Jos. This project seeks to enlighten students, the academic community, and public officials on the indispensability of quality education in tackling the challenges of the 21st century and the means by which it can be achieved. This project will be composed of:
1. Public lecture/Seminar: This is to create awareness among students and every member of the academic community on the need to pursue quality education.
2. Campaign/Rallies: This is meant to catch the attention of public officers, leaders, rulers and to solicit for their support to create an enabling environment in which quality education can be achieved.
3. Events: Special events will also be hosted to enlighten dignitaries, rulers, community leaders to publicly pledge their support for quality education.
