" Volunteering, leading and helping to build the community by impacting the lives of people around me positively have always been part of the things that I love to do. Being a Millennium Fellow will sharpen my leadership skills, bring people of like minds my way to grow and learn together, make me get involved with my project and I am so excited I would have a social impact in alignment with the UNAI and SDGs.

Millennium Fellowship Project: The Grow And Glow Project

The Grow and Glow Project is designed by The Esperanza Community, a nongovernmental organization, to reach out to students in secondary schools, igniting hope in them and creating a platform where they could also be mentored by members of the organization. This project was based on educating them about skills and why its acquisition is important for a positive impact to them and the society at large.
