" In my opinion, ideas will be stronger if you share them. Being a Millennium Fellow will give us an oppurtunity to share and enhance our ideas with other brilliant fellows. Then, we can take an action and change someone's life. Could be a better reason? "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Let's Be United
Let's Be United is a project that aims at strengthening the social adaptation of the migrant kids who are facing social barriers in elementary school. We conduct workshops which have different topics each week. Each workshop aim to bring in global values such as empathy, global citizenship, gender equality and tolerance. This values are reflected in art, drama and music activities and games.
