" I am excited because i believe that the Millennium Fellowship will help me take my social impact to the next level through the various trainings that take place. I am positive that it will build a higher level of confidence in me and in conducting a social impact project. It will also build confidence in networking with people from around the world. It will help a lot by improving my partnerships, building my capacity as a leader, building community with peers on campuses and around the world. I also believe that it will give me the opportunity to learn more about what working social impact entails, and hear from people who are in the sector. Lastly I am very certain that it will enable me reach my full potential as a productive, caring and responsible citizen. I believe also that with good health, the world can come back to normal and every other thing will be effective. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Zero Casualty
Zero Casualty project is a project that seeks to improve equity in health, reduce health risk amongst people in the society, promote healthy lifestyle through the various means:
1. Raise awareness¬†of the extent of illness, suffering and death among mothers and children and even men, and its impact on health as well as social development.
2. Increase understanding that solutions exist. Affordable and effective means are known that can prevent death and suffering. The challenge is to deliver a key set of preventive and curative interventions to the mothers and children who need them - to translate knowledge into action.
3. Generate a movement that stimulates collective responsibility and action. Families, community-based groups, professional societies, national governments, and the international community all need to support the delivery of programmes and services to mothers and children, as well as fight for better access to basic health services. Every individual within society has a role to play.
One major way is by carrying out medical outreaches to help those who are really in need. By December 2020 we should reached out to at least 3000+ people through this outreaches and awareness
