Millennium Fellowship Project: Campaign Against Hepatitis B
This campaign will be launched to sensitize the community on gender inequalities-related issues and how they affect both males and females in society. This campaign will include roundtable unfiltered conservations on certain sensitive subjects that sometimes are rarely discussed in society. However, they need to be addressed so that fewer people are affected by the same issues. The campaign aims to involve mostly Kenyan university students located in Kilifi county especially those who are really interested in the discussions surrounding gender inequality. If possible create a club at their universities for easy discussions. The campaign will not only happen physically but also online. The aim of the campaign is to create a platform that empowers the role of both genders with no discrimination.
