" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because this is an opportunity for me to learn and develop my leadership skills while I make a positive change in society. This is also an opportunity for me to network and collaborate with other young and driven students from South Africa and the international community as well. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Indlela

The main focus of the project is learners in schools from rural areas all around South Africa. The project seeks to bridge the gap between learners in advanced areas of South Africa and the learners in the rural setting.

Generally, leaners from advanced areas are well informed when making decisions on what to apply for when going to tertiary compared to the learners from the opposite end. A major contributor to this is access to information, students in the rural setting have limited access to information about tertiary institutions and what choices or courses that are offered in these institutions. This project focuses on getting the information of all 26 of the public universities in South Africa to these students in rural areas, the information may include brochures/prospectus that have information about these universities and courses they offer, what requirements must be met etc. The project uses/used the approach of "adopting schools". The chosen schools are supplied with information so that students are well informed when they make their choices of study when they complete matric.
