Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality education
With a gun, you kill a terrorist but with education, you kill terrorism. The North Eastern part of Nigeria which is where I am studying has been raveg by terrorism which has displaced millions of families and hardship has made promising youths to join this group. I will educate the youth on the need for peace and disabuse their minds against joining any group that will impact negatively on the society and I can only achieve this through quality education.
