" A teacher, a pen, a book and a student can change the world. Being a Millennium Fellow has been a dream I want to accomplish and now it is a reality .
The roles of teachers have been underestimated by the society, in my part of the world there is a social stigma that comes with being a teacher, it is often believed that teaching is just an escape from unemployment but it is not so, it is an avenue to train, shape, develop the minds of individuals who will make the world a better place.
My sole aim is to raise a generation of problem- solvers who would proffer unique and innovative solutions to the world's problem while leveraging on technology. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SDG Sensitization
For so long, in our country, coming to college has been seen as "for Academics" only. While that's a major reason for studying in college,it is
important to note that soldiers do not prepare for battles at the war front. Hence, we decided to take a different path, in showing our passion for the advancement of SDG4. The goal this time around was to let students understand the concept of SDGs, importance and applications of SDGs, while citing the Millenium Fellowship as an example of platform for advancement of the SDGs.
With over 24,000 students on our campus, we dimmed fit to educate these students on the subject matter and help them prepare for life after college! Our goals were achieved using the following mediums:
1.) Faculty orientation programs for freshmen.
2.) Departmental and faculty programs for students.
3.) Person-to-person sensitization.
