" “what i cannot create, i do not understand” limitations i will always overcome and this has been everything motivating me since i could count, my talent has never been to know or understand everything, it has always been my never ending ability to be teachable and understand the need for adaptation to grow.
i believe my quest as a Millennium Fellow not only gives me the opportunity to understand & learn but also to teach and develop everyone and everything around me that will listen. this is my sole cause for elation as a Millennium Fellow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Educate-Me Pivot
The Educate-Me Pivot (T.E.M.P) is an initiative that was driven by the desire to promote quality education of secondary school students living in Mushin, Lagos state, Nigeria. The selected school for our project was Ransome Kuti Senior Secondary Grammar School. Students living in this area experience many challenges in acquiring educational resources and they lack the motivation for learning due to high levels of poverty, illiteracy and underfunding from the government. Our project was aimed at mitigating some of these problems. We coached the students in Senior Secondary School 3, on the necessity of education and possible career paths beyond secondary school. Also, we provided mathematical sets and exercise books for the students.
