" There's nothing more fulfilling than knowing what i contribute in this world makes a difference. Changing the world for the better has always pushed me to do what i do whether its charity work or even when it involves cleaning up some trash. That is what drives me everyday.
I'm really excited about being a millennial fellow as it will help me with my leadership skills and problem solving skills. Engaging with people from other countries enables me to see how they dealt with their obstacles. I'll get to sharpen some of my skills eg.teamwork, project management and creativity from this fellowship and I am really grateful for it. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Anza Feet Drive
It mainly aimed at focusing on SDG 1(no poverty) and partially on SDG 4(quality education)
The project aimed at buying shoes as a means of eradicating poverty. The whole idea of the project is to eradicate poverty. This is the second idea that we are implementing whereby we aim at buying shoes for the needy students in some public schools. Some of this students view the shoes as a luxury while in real sense that is a basic need. Then the groups sent to the schools will mentor the students by talking to them and advising them. We had an original plan of buying 120 school shoes but luckily we exceeded our expectations and got . 150 shoes.
