" I believe in collective learning, and as a young African who is passionate about change, I am excited to be a part of the platform that creates the environment for young people who are passionate about bringing change, just like I am. Motivation is the food for substantial growth, and I believe that is one of the things the Millennium Fellowship offers, which makes me more excited to be a fellow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Community Garden
The Community Gardening Club, through the construction of campus community gardens aims to promote the social, environmental, and nutritional benefits of sustainable gardening at The African Leadership University Campus (Rwanda). Community gardens will promote interaction with the natural world and facilitate interdisciplinary pursuits at ALU by providing a unique outdoor learning environment, while also providing a tangible sense of place to a predominantly transient student body, and sponsoring a girl child within the ALU campus to school. Since the community garden will be located on campus, they will act as a link to other clubs by offering a shared area for teaching and learning. The club will engage in tree planting activities across the city of Kigali and its environs.
