" I realize that if I am to be a part of the solution for the issues that women and girls face internationally, I must also learn from those who have been active for far longer than me in combatting these injustices. Being a Millennium Fellow would be a hugely significant way of achieving both of these goals. Working with like-minded student leaders and learning new ideas from each other, sharing the ways we can empower our communities through the different initiatives, would be a momentous honor. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Empower Girls Morocco
Empower Girls Morocco is a project aiming to promote gender equality in developing countries. Our goal is to raise money through pandemic-friendly means such as online fundraising events that are relevant to this project’s themes. The raised funds will go to women and girls who encounter various gender and class-based obstacles in their everyday lives.
