" I intend to explore my project management skills. Even if my project is quite unilateral, I intend to engage with people in the community and interact with them. That will be very fulfilling notwithstanding the relationships I will build with my fellows. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Washa Stima

My project, “Washa Stima”, aims to achieve Clean and Affordable Energy for SDG #7 and No Poverty SDG #1. It is integral to introduce the role poverty reduction can play when interacting with energy transition to just and sustainable futures across the world. By liasing with Total Energy's CSR department, I was able to help marginalised businesses that experience power shortages to acquire solar lighting.

About the Millennium Fellow

My name is Frank Odhiambo Okoth-Menya. I am an undergraduate student really interested in Environmentalism. I hope to enter a career in environmental policy. There is much that can be done i that field in climate adaptation because the world is already messed up as it is.
