" It is exciting to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because this will grant me the opportunity to meet with like minds making it easier for us to achieve sustainable development goals in our communities and the world at large. I believe that if women are giving equal opportunities to quality education and leadership there will be significant improvement in quality of life and also tremendous progress will be made globally through economical, political and social platforms. It has been a long term dream and with the information, training and resources gotten from the fellowship, the dream is closer to being a reality. I am excited!!! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Empowering the girl-child project
Jos university is a community where gender equality is still grossly not in practice evidenced by the difficulties and frustration meted on the females each time any female is interested in being a member of decision making bodies in the university. This then brought about the project empowering the girl-child, I and a group of other great female leaders work as a team to empower young girls with the knowledge and support needed to win elections and appointments both at the local chapter and the National Association. The project is geared towards achieving SDGs especially SDG 5 (Gender equality). We are certain that with more support and teamwork we will achieve this in no time and give the University a facelift. I believe that if women and girls are empowered and given a sit at the helm of affairs, there is going to be tremendous change and improvement in governance.
