" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I hope to attain skills like public speaking, grant writing, community organisation, media relations and improve further on my leadership skills by participating in seminars and Webinars all round the globe. These set of skills will not only help me advance any project ideas I have but will also contribute largely to my personal development goals that will be helpful in my field of study. "
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.
About the Millennium Fellow
Janet Bitutu Nyabuto is an intelligent, Young and socially active Medical student in the University of Nairobi, Kenya, Kenyatta National Hospital Campus. Though Born and Raised in Kenya, Janet spent most of her time away from home by attending girl's boarding schools in the same country almost all through her life. Away from her home, family and close friends, the former painfully shy girl slowly grew to be an outspoken leader, fearless in calling out any forms of social injustices and has been in situations where she became the voice of those who couldn't speak up for themselves. Overtime, she has discovered her love for children as the vulnerable minority in the society which lead her to start several projects to better their wellbeing in contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Goals. Now more over than ever in her ongoing medical Course, she aspires to continue speaking and teaching children, impacting their lives positively both mentally and psychologically by giving them a platform to open up and listening to them.
