Millennium Fellowship Project: The Book Lover Club
The Book Lover Club is a club set out to ignite the passion for reading as well as promote a positive attitude towards reading amongst individuals. Reading gives knowledge and applied knowledge equals power. A significant habit of the successful is the spirit of reading consistently. Some students place limits on themselves by only focusing on their field of study alone. They graduate from school without having knowledge outside their field of study. The Book Lover Club bridges the gap for students to cross to diverse field of study and to build a habit of consistent reading by:
- Inviting national discussions that lead to student inquiry and critical thinking.
- Fostering interaction, cooperation and collaboration
- And nuturing reflection and self evaluation.
The Book Lover Club will live mainly on What's app and Telegram, we hope to have at least 1000 members. We will host three online sessions per week and we are aiming at getting sponsors to provide with some materials and resources.
