" I will get an opportunity to access further knowledge on leadership and to build strong networks and connections. I will be able to learn how to work with large groups and to run a project all by myself "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Tuongee Project
It will be a simple mentorship program geared towards equipping high school girls with necessary foundation skills to prepare for higher education and adulthood. A group of mentors will lead weekly sessions on various topics like investing, adjusting to university life, and self-employment. The aim is to realistically prepare girls for the life awaiting them after high school by empowering them with information that goes beyond their classes. When the girls join campus after going through the program they will be able to volunteer at the Big Sister project which will give them skills and a notable achievement for their CVs. The end goal is creating a cyclic program where girls who went through the program come back and guide others to create a network of sisterhood founded on real life experiences and the power of knowledge.
