Millennium Fellowship Project: Zero Illiteracy Project
Zero illiteracy project is designed to complement young people's rights to quality education through academic mentorship, provision of literary materials and digital/soft skills to students in underserved communities in Nigeria. The project is meant to solve the increasing rate of illiteracy and school dropouts in our communities and neighbourhoods caused by lack of academic support and poor quality teaching.
This project was implemented through Educate2030; a non-profit founded by Uchenna. At the end, over 300 students were impacted and certified.
