Millennium Fellowship Project: Creating Awareness on Safe Water and Sanitation
Knowledge they say is power!
The need for safe water and sanitation can not be over emphasized, especially during this delicate era of Covid-19 pandemic. This project is premised on this simple fact, and I am sure that one of the best ways to tackle the usage of unsafe water and unhygienic environment is by creating awareness about how harmful it can be to our health and also, the necessary precautions to take in order to curb harmful diseases.
In view of the above, through this project, we hope to carry out local outreaches, social media awareness, classroom education, and provision of waste bins and water purifiers for extremely rural communities.
I believe this project would be a step to making the environment fit for living as it should be.
