Millennium Fellowship Project: Women in Science Initiative
Women in science initiative is aimed at motivating, teaching and encouraging girls at lower education levels to study science subjects to enable them take science courses in higher institutions of learning. This is to reduce the ratio 4 boys to 1 girl in science fields in my country Uganda. The project is also aimed at encouraging parents to invest in education of their girl child as most people in my country regard educating girl child as a wastage of resources
