" The Millennium Fellowship over the years have impacted not only the society but also the fellows by instilling a culture of intellectual
responsibility, innovative ability, and skills required to overcome social challenges and also, enhance social impact career opportunities to make remarkable changes in the society and the world at large. I look forward to participating actively in this fellowship program, in order to take my social impact experience to the next level. Networking with similar minds is also something I look forward to.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality Education for All
My project is directed towards students with learning disabilities which have made some students and children, most especially ones in rural communities, primary and secondary schools drop out of school with the mindset that school isn’t for them. The purpose of this project is to reach out to these students with these disabilities. Most especially students who are not aware of their disabilities, as such not open to clinical care and thereafter drop out of school. We believe that no child is dumb and owe aimto address that. My project can be summarized in a few words, Inclusive quality education for all.
