Strathmore University | Nairobi, Kenya | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 1
" As a millennial and global citizen, it is of vital importance that I am able to participate in the affairs of the world. The Millennium Fellowship presents an opportunity that will allow me to expand my reach, strengthen my community, and have a bigger beneficial influence. Because of my devotion, commitment, and cultural sensitivity, I am certain that my work as a Millennium Fellow will contribute to the UN Member States' universal call of action to eradicate poverty, sustainably preserve the planet, and guarantee that people live in peace and prosperity. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: This Is Me Kenya Movement
My project for this semester most addressed SDG 3 which is about Good Health and Well-being as it targets to strengthen the prevention and treatment of substance abuse, ensure access to sexual and reproductive healthcare services by informing and educating, and achieve health coverage. The most applicable UN Academic Impact Principle to this project is Principle 1 that addresses poverty.
