" Through creative thinking and taking initiative, I have always longed to make great contributions in projects that I am part of. However, it takes more than creativity and being willing to do what it takes. I am therefore excited to be part of Millennium Fellowship as it is a chance to work with fellow change makers towards engineering socio-economic progress. Willing to network and learn from each other's successes and setbacks, I can't wait to start. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Dunia Bora Initiative
Dunia Bora is a collective initiative launced by Millennium Fellows at Moi University that offers training and mentorship to primary and high school children. During their outreach, the cohort at Moi University focused on peace education, health particularly mental and oral health through partnerships and support from bodies such as Heroes for Change were we able to offer these children a token of appreciation for their time in the form of books and toothpaste. The team also managed to have a tree planting exercise with the children in a bid to promote sound environmental practices.
