Millennium Fellowship Project: ECHO Initiative
The communities must be aware of knowing how disease outbreak might be prevented or controlled likewise it is the responsibilities for every and each citizen to know and sensibilize the effective communication during an outbreak of disease. Even if the youth is less likely to be interested, my project is coming to convince the youth that they are the one the healthy of communities mostly depends on their interventions as Nelson Mandela said '' we us youth, the future world belongs to our hands'‘. Then, I care about this project to address that the young front-runners might be intervening during this pandemic Covid-19 not only corona virus but also other communicable diseases that likely to affect Rwandan communities such as Cholera, diarrhea, dysentery and other that continue to threat the lives of citizens.
EHO Initiative is raising awareness of youth towards preventing communicable diseases in Rwanda and providing some trainings as well as creating opportunities such as scholarships, grants, fellowships and mentorship. Mainly the project is targeting young leaders from high school, and universities. ECHO Initiative will continue to reach the schools where those young leaders are located, and zoom sessions will be prepared monthly.
