" If beauty had a distinct color, then it would be green. Green for vegetation symbolizes fertility and prosperity – an assurance of the future. Each time I see a well maintained forest, there is a surge of joy in my heart. Oh, the greenery! Trees are the reason why I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship this year. As I am a writer and photographer, I hope to employ the skills and knowledge learnt in the fellowship into an amalgamation of sorts to help create a powerful campaign towards preservation and maintenance of trees. "
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.
