" I am so excited to be granted the opportunity to effect meaningful change within my communities, while at the same time being granted the pleasure and honour of engaing with amazing, diverse groups of people who all share one common goal; a better tomorrow. I am humbled by the knowledge that the Millennium Fellowship programme is the perfect platform to address and tackle the challenges we face in our societies and that I get to be a part of that journey. Being part of a program that will guide, compliment and further my passions of effecting meaningful change is more than I could ask for. I cannot wait to put in the good work that needs to be done to ensure that we realise a better, more inclusive, more sustainable tomorrow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: UWC Palestine Solidarity Association
PSA UWC aims to inform and inspire change within our campus community by hosting information sessions, seminars and online awareness campaigns during August to December, focussed at educating our communities about human rights issues such as racism, oppression, suppression and its harmful effects. We aim to create a culture of global solidarity and empathy, not only in relation to the Palestinian plight, but on global atrocities worldwide.
