" “ As Jane Goodall simply and eloquently put it ‘there is still so much in the world worth fighting for’ and I couldn’t agree more. Being a Millennium Fellow is a golden opportunity to work with other like-minded, impact-oriented individuals who have a conviction to brew positive change out of the hearts of problems into durable solutions. ‘As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.’ This quote has taught me that excellence and prominence are well punctuated only when the wellbeing of others is a concern to me as a young African leader.
I personally believe that an innovative spirit, cultural and intellectual vibrancy cultivates a broad perspective in people to revamp their inherent passion and responsibilities on the concept of establishing progressive development in parts of the world like Sub-Saharan Africa. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: iTeach2impact
“A good teacher, the bedrock of academic excellence.” The art of writing, reading, debating and implementation is the duty of a student but the detailed inclusion of an individual to lead and teach him cultivates a good blend of knowledge acquisition and its subsequent application. Hence, this project is geared towards soliciting talents and techniques, in order to educate students in both rural and urban areas and impacting a practical skill attitude into them. This will be done by organizing a team of young vibrant intellectuals in several workshops for innovative and creative outreach at the Junior High School level on matters of personal development, modern-day technology as well as nurturing an attitude for Science and Maths. We also plan on donating a collection of stationeries to the pupils. This project targets to impact about 200-500 people by the end of December 2021. Given the global pandemic, for a declared lockdown, we plan to take these workshops to the virtual space through an online academic conference with the purpose and message remaining valid. In either case, we are enthused about the introduction of an indigenous software application created by the same team for efficient studies; Pearlion E-Learning.
