" My creativity, intelligence, leadership skills and adaptability pushed me to apply for this fellowship. I have been looking for a platform where I could change my ideas with more experienced people and hence help in solving problems in the African continent and other parts of the world. The skills that I will gain from this fellowship will make my social impact on schools and art communities more tangible and aligned with the UNAI principles and SDGs. I look forward to aquire new ways of learning and becoming more creative. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Quality Education for the Poor

My project is a computer laboratory in my rural home school. It addresses quality education for girls and boys, SDG 4. The project will ensure pupils and students in that school and the neighbouring schools will get access to revision papers , e books You Tube tutorials and also access to scholarships and opportunities. This would help them compete fairly and freely with students whose parents are rich.
