Millennium Fellowship Project: Education for all

If after miseries life goes on, then we have to fight for the best. My project is due to the youth students who droped out of school during covid 19 pandemic disease. Because of that pandemic, schools faced challenges where in our country, they closed for not too short period of time. Firstly, during the period of school closing, some youth meet with temptations and caused them to be pregnant. These early pregnancy caused them to drop out of school because of inability to take care of their children together with school.Secondary, that period of school closure,caused poverty among some families that caused youth to not be able to return to school.Therefore my project is to help those young people who were out of school to find them and help them to return back to school by sensibilizing them and by helping them with the main needs and encourage them to join others and to fight discrimination among students. Those who have children can be helped by the government to be able to take
care of them and for my project, I would like to be a voice to them in the government.and for I am planning to prepare 3 events which will help in knowing and selecting those youth to be helped and what they can do so as for them to reach back to school even if they can return back in the start of next year,, also there are those who need to study technical schools because they have children to take care of and they have to et school fees .and each event will hold 70-100young ladies.
