" I am excited because the Millennium Fellowship will aid me in the development of my skills, the strengthening of my sense of self, and the clarification of my intent.
I really want to improve my cross-cultural competency and understanding, as well as hear from others about what they're doing and how they've impacted their cultures. Since this forum attracts people from all over the world, I hope to gain international exposure and share my expertise.
Furthermore, since the Millennium Fellowship is aligned with the United Nations and has the potential to gain momentum in my culture, it would not only assist me in gaining visibility but also in obtaining funds to expand my awareness campaign. It's easier to find funding or collect funds as part of a fellowship than it is to do so on an individual basis, which is nearly impossible. This fellowship, I am certain, will help me build the trust I need to realize my dream project, have a positive effect on my community, and improve people's lives. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Umatter Community Outreach
The project was birthed and launched early 2020 with an inspiration from the many health morbidities and mortalities that we kept seeing and witnessing in our hospitals and communities at large and most of those could be prevented if our communities were sensitized on the right health practices and how they could protect and or keep themselves if they got certain disease processes. The project is carried ,as of now, in two main platforms .These are community outreach programs (one – to - one interactions with the community ) and media platforms i.e. radio and social media. The radio awareness programs are done on a weekly basis on Saturdays and are repeated on Sundays depending on the radio station where the program was done. We also participate in a lot of keep our communities cleaning campaigns by cleaning our streets, yards and health facilities. Additionally, we also visit collectional facilities for inmates the most recent being the visit to the female section was visited and different assorted things were donated which included sanitary pads. Furthermore, we plan to launch a keep our campus clean campaign which will not just be restricted to this campus but extended to others as well.
