Millennium Fellowship Project: Rising Star Initiative
Rising Star Initiative is an initiative that focuses on attaining Quality Education and is created to enlighten and empower kids in Primary school with skills that will benefit them academically. We used the phrase "Rising Star" because we believe that every child is a star; that is meant to glow and brighten every dark valley. And we discovered that the Star(in otherwise the child) cannot glow except with the right tools and the help of parents, guidance, and tutors/teachers through the process.
Owing to the very overbearing poor economic conditioning in the nation's educational sector, especially at the primary school level. Teaching and learning have not cut across all fields ranging from leadership, health, and problem-solving skills. We realized that the only way to save the upcoming generation from going through a similar predicament is to create a platform that will elevate the level of academic excellence of students at the primary level and sensitize the primary school teachers and tutors on the best ways to instruct the kids. The initiative is aimed to impact 2500 kids in three different communities withing August to November of 2021.
