" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow as it is an opportunity to work and interact with passion driven peers who are determind to shape this world for the better. I believe a collective effort from all of us is what is needed to conquer all the challenges that we face in every day of our existence. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Dream Chasers
The project aims to equip underprivileged children with the necessary life needs that every child must have such as and not limited to: food, shelter, clothes, education, access to health, guidance and counselling, mentorship. The project is inspired by a high school Christian group( Christian Life Community) thst used to fundraising activities every month to donate groceries and other sundries to a local orphanage. Spending a day with the kids would mean a lot to them, they would enjoy and have fun playing games and being very sociable. So I thought it is our responsibility to fill in that gap and act as these children's elder siblings, guiding them as they grow so that they can navigate their way in life while also providing the necessary resources for them.
