Millennium Fellowship Project: Student for the Students Initiative
Student for the Students Initiative is a project that seeks to imbue students with critical and independent thinking skills. The main idea governing the initiative is that Quality Education is not about cramming class notes, but having a mind of oneself. Student performance is largely affected by learning styles and approaches. As such, the team hopes to impact 50-100 students by December 2020, the idea being that this will cause a ripple effect where they will also extend to others that they will meet these particular skills.
