" Nothing feels more good than being in a group of intellectuals from different walks of life brought together in a platform of interaction to share and exchange ideas with clearly well put down goals.That is what MCN is.It brings together like minded individuals with desire to bring an effect to our world today.I love the existence of health and knowledge ,fairness and healthy leadership. Everyday is a dream for me to advocate for change and enrich the lifestyle of every individual without putting into consideration to ethnicity,age,colour,education level and physical wellness. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Bliss
The bliss is a project that is dedicated to quality education and health literacy for the women in some of kenyas highly affected regions,these are some areas where women are barred from education to perform home chores and others are cut of from education at such an early age.The learned women in a number of these areas are treated as outcast and the women in the society do not want to be associated with them in the name of"they are absorbing the western culture."The project majorly targets women from age 8-20 who are in the school going age but majorly also includes already mature women who are mothers and are illeterate healthwise,most of the women in the rural marginalised areas are getting eye opening tips for knowledge.The major sustainable development goal on the chase is quality education,with health issues and gender equality on the minor segment.Its time women get equal platforms to men,no human being is inferior.putting that into consideration it is also of importance to understand that the boychild and men in the society are also important hence the fight is not meant to demoralize them and inferiorate thethe men in our society.
