" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because I strongly believe that it will give me the necessary skills and know-how to develop and rebuild my country. It will build my capacity and provide me with the tools and knowledge to be able to effectively participate in peace building and development initiatives as a young entrepreneur. This is a passion for me, to be able to empower young men and women to be at the fore front of development initiatives and peace building projects because the youth have the power to be the change and to drive change in our societies and in the world at large.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Life Through Arts
Life Through Arts is an organization that encourages and advocates for creative cultural activity in all its forms. It encompasses everything from traditional amateur arts and crafts (singing, dancing, drama, quilting, painting, writing, and so forth) to the digital techniques.
Our purpose is to portray life through arts as the name suggests while promoting pertinent issues such as human rights protection, gender equality, and supporting disadvantaged and marginalized groups of people reviving arts in all its forms. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the powerless and marginalized and empower people through arts programs that enable young men and women to reach their full potential creatively.
Our goal is to provide at least 1000 opportunities to people through arts and raising funds to have projects that will reach out and help young men and women in a life-changing manner by 2020. We have already started working with 20 people from rural areas. With more resources coming, we intend to work with young men and women in a life-changing manner, helping them create a better future and reduce unemployment.
