" Winston Churchill once said we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Dentistry is a means for me to make a living but I see Millennium Fellowship as platform for me to touch lives. I am hardworking and ready to learn, I believe the skills I will learn from Millennium Fellowship will give me a huge leap in reaching out to my community in alignment with the sustainable development goals. It is truly an honour to be considered to be one of the members of the Millennium Fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Rerin
"Rerin” is a Yoruba (one of the major ethnic groups in Nigeria that inhabits south-western part of Nigeria) word meaning ‘to smile or laugh’
Project Rerin is a Millennium Fellowship project that seeks to increase more awareness of mental health to the public. Our aim is that by the end of this project, more people have a better understanding of mental illness and there is a significant reduction in the stigma attached to it. We also aim to create more awareness of the treatability of the illness.
