" Creativity and the drive for impact fueled the desire to be a Millennium Fellow, not just that but also pushes me to do what I love doing. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will enhance my skills both in the practical and theoretical aspects.
The skills I will gain from the community will help me reach out communities and programmes organised will align with the principles of UNAI and SDGs. I am excited to broaden my horizon by learning new ways of being a leader and reaching out. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: ABetterMe Initiative
ABetterMe initiative is centered on impacting lives and assisting them in any way. The project is tagged "Skill up a Special Child". It is centered on educating children with special needs on relevant skills. It is aimed at reducing the digital gap and equipping children with special abilities on digital skills such as using a system, typing etc. These basic skills will serve as an eye-opener to the importance of digital literacy.
The aim and objective of this project is to create awareness on digital literacy and its relevance in the 21st century. In Nigeria, people living with disabilities have little or no access to certain opportunities and they end up on the streets as beggars. If these opportunities are extended to their end, it will help improve their lifestyle and make them useful to their respective communities.
