Millennium Fellowship Project: The One on One initiative
The one on one initiative is a mentorship program birthed for kids in rural areas who have no educated to look up to and to guide them through making good and valuable decisions for themselves. Often, I see kids in my community who have given up on education because they were surrounded by people who did not understand the value of education therefore the one on one initiative is basically to mentor and encourage of all ages.
* We plan to provide educational materiaks for kids in rural public primary and secondary schools
* We plan to provide tutorials on different subjects for kids in rural primary and secondary schools
* Organise talks and seminars that encourages and drives them to seek the best and highest pinnacle in pursuing thier dreams.
* Provide personal mentors for each child in our program, someone in the field they would like to see themselves.
