" Well apart from the love of diversity, I believe that the world problems can be tackled down and reduced. It will be great to work with different people because they bring the best out of you and together motivate each other to their best. Becoming a Millennium Fellow will help me increase my knowledge in understanding and developing the SDG4 and SDG5 in which regarding my community work we have started. Gender Equality and Education For All should be encouraged in all communities as it is a step to development. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Epi-Raconteur project
Getting information off the internet has never been easy, a few scrolls, clicks and there you go. But does it become easy when there are hundreds or even thousands of search results for a single search item? Epi-raconteur as a project was initiated by the health infodemic situation that the world has experienced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, making it hard for people around the world to differentiate between factual information from fictitious information. It is a digital-based platform that focuses on creating awareness on factual health information to young adults and adults to enable them make more informed decisions regarding their health.
We aim to reach out to 150 young adults and 50 adults with health and wellness information via our two main social media platforms, Instagram and Facebook and also hold 4 live sessions - 2 live sessions for each platform with guests or in partnership with other organisations focusing on the same thing as us.
