Millennium Fellowship Project: Human Rights Awareness Campaign
Human Rights Awareness Campaign is a campaign aimed at promoting peace and Human Rights through awareness on various high school campuses, marketplaces as well as youth centers.
As a strategy to reach out to more young people globally. I, in collaboration with one of the fellows on my campus, created an online platform to educate youths from around the world on the importance of peace and Human Rights. It was a one-week intensive training which brought over 200 participants from around the world. It's was conducted online via WhatsApp, Google Meet as well as on Zoom.
A physical awareness was also initiated and facilitated by me and other nonmillennium Fellows. We engage high school students, communities resident, youth centers as well as marketplaces.
Within the course of my project, I engaged your leaders, we had a dialogue about Human Rights as a means of getting their ideas as to what human rights are and how they can contribute to the peacebuilding process of our community, and the world at large.
And currently, these young people are now serving as ambassadors of Peace and Human right within their respective communities.
Also, we engage the elders to get their wise thought and to know more about the sources of conflicts During their youthful age.
My project lasted for about a couple of weeks, and we were able to make a great impact within the society and with over 5500 people been impacted greatly by my project.
