" I believe creativity, paired with mentorship, goes a long way in helping anyone develop a passion for a skill. With the Millennium Fellowship, I get to have mentors and peers who are passionate about improving the world around them. Most of the achievements I've made involved someone cheering me on and telling me I can do it. I want to do that for someone too. "
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.
