" I am very excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is an excellent opportunity to meet and get inspired by other people who, like me, are committed to changing the world and helping our communities to have access to all their human rights. I am sure that this program will give me the necessary tools to continue working for a better future for my country. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Citizens of The World
Citizens of the World: Helping Refugees and Migrants is an independent project focusing on three main aspects: Generating empathy, Providing aid and Research. The project aims to help refugees and migrants by promoting their stories, collecting donations for them and researching innovative methods to support them. During the Millennium Fellowship Period CW seeks to consolidate itself as a group, creating at least 3 conferences where refugees and migrants can share their experiences (one will be specifically of women that are refugees), 1 roundtable of innovative ideas and 2 magno-collection of donations for the different migrant houses in Nuevo León. CW hopes to reach over 400 people with this project and provide a new perspective about refugees and their lives in Mexico.
