" Ability to work under challenging circumstances, inferential decision making and professionalism fueled by empathy drives my art. Being a part of Millennium Fellowship will heighten these skills collaboratively. The skills I gain from Millennium Fellowship will make my social impact on individuals and communities more tangible and in form with the UNAI principles and SDGs. I am excited to improve my anticipatory competence by visualizing news ways to reach out far and wide. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Operation Feed an African Child
Feeding is not just about food, feeding also includes intake of necessary information to refine and nourish the mind, learning a skill to actually be productive, and being knowledgeable about ways to care about one's self and make the society better. This is what feeding means to the team of Operation Feed an African Child. In this project, every year the team sets out 3 days to teach children and adults around the community about hygiene, morals and the importance of education including population control. In addition, the project plans to distribute food and clothes to these children and adults.
