" I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because I have for a long time, looked towards increasing my knowledge and experience of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations under its umbrella and enhancing my skills as a leader, team-player, and problem-solver which are important traits for a Millennium Fellow and a change-maker.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Youth Sustainability Development Conference: Pan African Edition 2021
The Youth Sustainability Development Conference is an annual conference where young people from Africa and beyond, can come together for the purpose of creating, establishing, and supporting change-making initiatives in various African communities. The Conference majorly aims towards the enlightenment of 'delegates' on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and the provision of a platform where there can be a thorough review of ongoing initiatives and projects in Africa by young people who are well-experienced in the pursuit of sustainable development, to help the participants behind these initiatives and projects realize the drawbacks and challenges hindering the success or growth of their projects. The Conference also aims towards defining how these projects and initiatives can be made to grow further and achieve the aims for which they were created, in accordance with the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
The Conference also ensures the funding of *one initiative amongst all that proves to be investment attracting, distinct, and implementable in accordance with the need to uphold the principles of Sustainable Development of the United Nations.
