University of Jos | Jos, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 1 & UNAI 1
" I am very excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because the fellowship offers me the invaluable opportunity of connecting with people globally of like-minded passion which will serve as a motivation towards me achieving my desired goals. The training I hope to receive will also by the end of this program adequately prepare me for social impact. I'm working to eliminate poverty is in the society because it has become a big problem, leading to hunger, crime, poor education, inequality and so many other challenges. I hope to train especially young people on multiple ways to escape poverty and if possible, provide them with the necessary things needed to achieve that. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Favour Agabi is a young and diligent student of history and international studies in her penultimate year from the university of Jos, Nigeria. She has always been interested in humanitarian affairs since she was a kid. She has always been passionate about positively impacting her society and solving problems affecting human beings, hence, she started volunteering in an NGO committed to children's welfare called Hope House Foundation Nigeria. Having made a thorough analysis of the society in which she lives in, she discovered that poverty is one of the key problems of her society and nation. This has led her to think of ways in which she can solve that problem. She hopes that by solving the problem of poverty, many other problems will be solved.
