" This is such an amazing opportunity to change the world in any little way I can. By choosing to advance one SDG, I am cementing my stand in the social change industry and Mullen Fellowship is the perfect foundation for this. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Pazia Zetu
Pazia Zetu aims to advance SDG 8 (Decent Work & Economic Growth). As a painter Mwangangi has noticed that there is a gap in the art industry for affordable artwork. The main reason is because the medium used to paint on (which is mostly canvas on a wooden frame) is quite expensive. So using inexpensive materials e.g. Ivory paper/manila paper and recycled CDs Mwangangi has been able to come up with a form of art decor known as Pazia. With the proper support and funding Mwangangi will be able to spread the idea to less fortunate painters in different counties to create an adequate and sustainable livelihood for them
About the Millennium Fellow
I, Mwangangi Munyoki, have always believed I'm an outlier. In everything I do from my art to my studies, my perfectionist personality trait always comes out to ensure I've given my best in any project I decide to pursue.
