It will help me develop some even more other skills partaining leadership, teamwork etc. Furthermore those skills I will use them in the future to postively change my community or even the world. And possibly even teach other young individuals about those skills. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: For Women By Women (FWBW)
For Women By Women that was established towards the end of August 2021. It mainly focuses on women issues such as their Health, challenges that are being faced by women and educate them about those and give them advices pertaining those. Even young women, school girls to be specific will be included so that they will also learn from experiences of those who older than them or those who had already walked this road or those who already gained some wisdom in this life . They will also be taught about teenage pregnancy which is one of the leading social issues in my area. This project will be all things pertaining female health and wellbeing. Lastly it will raise awareness and empower women to become anything that they want to be, the sky is no longer a limit. By the day, at some point we will also help men with everything pertaining their health and emotional wellbeing so that they heal and we will leave in better world of good men and women, with no gender that is persistingly abusing the other because of their past experiences that they did not heal from.
