" I believe through resilience and focus I can achieve all my goals and much more that I cannot currently comprehend. Being a Millennium Fellow will take me a thousand steps closer to my aspirations. The knowledge and experience I will gain from the Millennium Fellowship will distinguish me from the rest and give me a unique outlook of the world around me and enable me to make my contribution to the world. I am excited to learn from my fellow participants and all the facilitators. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SRHR University Outreach
My project idea which is named Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights University Outreach is a program I plan to implement at the University of Zambia due to the high levels of students not knowing what SRHR is and how it can improve their lives and help them be at a lesser risk of having sexual transmitted infections which are currently high in Zambia as well as unplanned pregnancies. This is a project that seeks to empower students at my University with Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Knowledge.
About the Millennium Fellow
Bibian Chibelushi is an emerging leader and a third year student at the University of Zambia. She was born in Zambia and has done all of her education in Zambia. Bibian is an advocate, her advocacy boarders around gender equality, good governance, sexual reproductive health and rights and women and children’s rights.
