" Brainstorming to come up with possible solutions for challenges that plague my community is at the core of my drive. Being a Millennium Fellow presents me with an opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who will sharpen and horne my skills as well as critic my mindset and attitudes hence prompting growth.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Indigenous Forest Communities In Kenya
The Human Rights Research Wing of the Strathmore Law Clinic in partnership with ProHome-Program and Makerere University's PILAC embarks on an outreach research project. The project involves collection of data that will aid in generating a comprehensive report. This report will present findings on the human rights status of the Ogiek and Sengwer minority communities who have been victims of prolonged evictions from the State. It will utilize past precedents such as the Mitubell case to analyze the effectiveness of these rulings and their effectiveness in solving the present challenges faced by indigenous communities.
