" I think the most powerful drive for social action has to be compassion. I love the people of Dak Lak. I love my students from the SexEd seminars. I love the companionship that I have created through the journey of committing to social actions in Vietnam. Love empowers me to listen, to care, to seek the best solutions for the people we are helping, and beyond all, to stand strong. Fortunately, love is contagious. I am excited to join our talented Millennium Fellows this year on a journey that is fueled by compassion, bravery, and integrity. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Grment Workshop

The Dak Lak Community Building Project aims to raise a total of $ 4000 to 1) build up a food pantry, 2) provide scholarships and school supplies for elementary children, and 3) organize an official Vietnamese language class for the people of Chi Nế and Ea-sin Town, Dak Lak Province, Vietnam. We are planning to raise funds through campaigning and merchandise selling within the MMC campus. Along the way, we hope to raise awareness and inspire discussions on sustainable development pathways for marginalized communities through collaboration with student organizations within the school.

About the Millennium Fellow

Ha Le is a student at Florida International University where she pursues a bachelor's in International Relations and Economics. Born and raised in Vietnam, Ha develops a strong bond with her roots and her people, especially with women and children who are structurally marginalized by the remnants of century-long gender inequality practices in Vietnam. Ha found her moment of obligation after a trip to Dak Lak province, Vietnam – where she met an elementary teacher that inspired her to create changes through local-driven and sustainable solutions, among which girls' education and women's employment empowerment were the keys. Ha founded the One Million Lives Fundraising organization last summer with the hope of raising funds and awareness for sustainable social solutions, focusing on marginalized groups of women and children. The organization now has 67 members and has completed 2 cycles of fundraising with a measured impact of more than 120 lives benefited from food, school supplies, and sanitary products donation; along with educational seminars, scholarships, and local infrastructure building.
