" I want to make a difference in my community. Having been afforded the priviledge to access the best education and health care, I dream to see a community where these are rights for everyone. I believe that being a Millennium Fellow will give me the skills and know how on how to go about it. With the Millennium Fellowship having its foundations alligned with the SDGs, I am excited to be a part of this journey towards a better tomorrow. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Special Education Support (SES)
Our project is aimed at optimising the learning experience of special needs children at Martin Luther Primary School. In Kenya, children with special needs are often sidelined and do not have the necessary tools to facilitate their learning. We hope through this project, that we will acquire learning aids for them and their teachers/caregivers that will give them the best possible learning experience.
