" The fellowship will creat a network where meeting other brilliant ideas from different countries would be possible. The platform will also help market these ideas and improve on them where necessary and where possible.

About the Millennium Fellow
Henry Ouma Oduor is a vibrant and talented Kenyan youth who is currently in his final year of studies at Kenyatta University's main campus. Henry has been raised in Mathare, one of the largest known slums in Nairobi. Despite all the challenges faced while growing in the slum, he has proved beyond reasonable doubt that with a determined motive, any child in the slum can excel in their endeavors. He is passionate about bringing about change in the system of education that children in Kenya are currently undergoing. It is this passion that pushed him into applying to be a participant in the 2021 Mellennium Fellowship.
Among other skills, art and craft is what sets Henry apart. His talent in pencil drawing, painting, and crafts has seen him co-found Slin Art Club that offers art classes to children who attend Slin Library, a community library in Mathare. He is also trained in Records Management and Information Technology.
