" Various pockets of change exist in the society, as well as untapped potential to drive exponential change in the local society that I live in. With the fellowship, I get to meet driven individuals that will open my view of how to accomplish the goals I have set for myself. I get to network with people that bolster my skillset and views of life in general. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Give me Hope
Give me Hope is a project that aims to ensure quality education to our young secondary school going girls in Kenya. This education time period is marred with inconsistencies in the quality of education, counseling and guidance offered to the girls, and the limits can be attributed to lack of a solid platform and program that ensures these girls take care of each other. This project aims at ensuring proper awareness of the impact of mental health as a core competency in educating our young girls, with the aim of making it free for them to seek help and get help from peers and their educators. We are aiming at reaching a minimum of 50 individuals during the time period.
