" Tenacity , creativity and prayer has always kept me going. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will not only grant me an opportunity to network with young people who are great- minded, but it will also help me become this fine and great leader I have always wished to be . I believe that the skills I gain from the fellowship will make my social impact in all communities. I have been working with more tangible and aligned with SDGs. I am so excited to begin this adventure of more learning and creativity "

Millennium Fellowship Project: FloCircle

Flo-circle seeks to alleviate period poverty. The targeted group of young ladies is from a small rural community called Irisvale, these are mainly school dropouts as a result of pregnancy who don’t have any means to fend for themselves. The whole purpose of this project is to source, acquire and distribute sanitary pads to the suffering girl child as well as mental health advocacy. The group along with the mental health check ins where we discuss how they have been coping with their situation as well as encourage them to be each other’s keeper will also be trained how to empower themselves through working on projects that are a source of income. We also raise awareness about period poverty and it’s impact on mental health to female NUST students.
