Millennium Fellowship Project: Purple Monarch Project, PUMP
Purple Monarch Project is an initiative aimed at addressing health challenges in my community such as Drug Addiction/Abuse as well as Sexual violence.
It is a project I will be running long term.
So what is exactly is Purple Monarch?
Purple is a color that signifies royalty and nobility.
Monarch on the other hand signifies transformation and rebirth.
In a bid to help those struggling with addiction, PuMP tackles this by getting to the root cause and creating awareness about these issues
