" I am excited to be among the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2021. I see this as an opportunity to go out and make a change in my community by impacting young girls and giving them chances of living a better life, and as a chance for me to connect with other great minds while doing so. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Joy Tribe
Joy is a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. When a person moves from a state of ignorance to acquiring knowledge, when a person need is being met. There is this feeling of happiness and pleasure that accompanies it. We are the tribe that brings this feeling into people's life, young teenage girls especially and enjoin others to be part of us. From the plan we drafted, the project will not be limited to the duration of the Millennium Fellowship only. The three point agenda of this project is:
a. Stop period poverty by funding the purchase of menstrual products for young teenage girls.
b. Educating young female girls on the female reproductive system. i.e. their body and how it works, menstrual health and hygiene.
c. Modelling the way for other organizations/individuals that will be interested in the cause
