" I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it will provide me with a platform to share my views on Human Rights with like minded people. I will also get to learn about many other projects that other people are involved in with a bid to make the world a better place. I am happy that we will get to share and exchange ideas so as to ensure more lives are impacted. I am further excited because I will be able to meet with trainers who will take this journey with me and teach me how to give maximum impact to members of my community. And finally, I hope to engage with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds who will help me appreciate the importance of diversity in teamwork. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Refugee Kenya Community Impact
Refugee Kenya Community Impact is a project that focuses on addressing poverty and Human Rights related issues among refugees in Kenya. Noting that Kenya has the largest refugee camp in Africa, the team believes that these refugees should be provided with knowledge and tools so as to make their own income and live independent lives. Refugee Kenya Community Impact aims to provide economic ideas to them to help them start up their own self governed business. We also aim to help them learn how to manage those business so that they can continuously have self generated income. Further, Refugee Kenya Community Impact aims to address issues regarding discrimination on refugees by reviewing the 2001 Refugee Act and formulating a new draft Act that the team hopes can be tabled in the Kenyan parliament and passed.
